Review: Redman, “Redman Presents…Reggie”

Redman, Redman Presents…Reggie
Def Jam

“Some rappers say they had it/ I feel I’m getting started,” argues Redman on his seventh album, Reggie. To prove his point, the Brick City veteran abandons the distinctive funk beats of his earlier classics in favor of electronic R&B hooks and clubby bounce tracks. It yields some rewards like “Def Jammable” and “Lite 1 Witcha Boi,” the latter a posse cut with Method Man and Bun B, as well as a few duds such as the Auto-Tuned “Full Nelson.” Reggie sounds uneven, but give Redman credit for trying something new, even at the risk of alienating his hardcore audience.
