In 1999, Erick and Parrish Making Dollars were going “Out of Business” (literally and figuratively) with their last album before the duo’s second breakup. One of our most played tracks from the project was the Symphony 2000 cut that featured battle rapper Lady Luck, Tical and Reggie. Themed from classic horror films, our favorite part was Lady Luck reenacting the promo scene from “Carrie” where a bucket of blood landed on her all white dress and she continued to rap like it was nothing.
Enjoy the flashback above from the L.I. legends EPMD.
Rapper-songwriter, Kent M$NEY is giving listeners more HS87 audio we can add to playlist fresh from the release of the crews debut album “All I’ve Ever Dreamed Of.” It’s been a long journey since his “Becoming EP” from 2010, but he returns with his sophomore project “Eyes Wide Shut.” We’ve seen a few samples from the project over the past few months to prepare you for the main entrée we have today.

Roosevelt, Diz Gibran, Xzibit, Raekwon, Dave Young, Nicka, Method Man, Redman, Schoolboy Q.

What would 4/20 be without a new release from Reggie Noble? We couldn’t imagine it, which is why we get a new Redman release today, titled “Hands Up” and featuring fellow Brick City native DoItAll and Mr. Cheeks.
It’s coincidental we get a new track from Reggie, considering only 2 days ago, we were paying homage to his “I’ll Be Dat” video. This should hold you over until we get more information on the long-awaited Muddy Waters II: Even Muddier album.

My first name must be “He Ain’t Shit!” because we’re flashing back to 1998 with Redman’s first single from Doc’s Da Name 2000. Funk Doc was already on his fourth album when this dropped, with Rockwilder providing the production for the double platinum smash.
“I’ll Bee Dat” was ultimately the most successful track off the project, but there were plenty of bangers on there. Redman was always coming correct.

Def Jam was in full effect in 1997, as LL Cool J and the likes of Method Man, Redman and DMX connected through the “4, 3, 2, 1″ single from his Phenomenon album. This track was a classic for a variety of different things. For one, it was the introduction of DMX. It also sparked a beef between LL and Canibus, who was originally featured on the song but was left off of the video because of the lines in his verse.
LL found one line disrespectful, and told Can to switch it up but he didn’t. This sparked a feud between the two, enough that diss records were made following.
Fans ate it up at the time, and it only propelled the record. Here’s one to LL.

Due to opposition by the LAPD, the 2013 HIGH TIMES Medical Cannabis Cup had to be moved to San Bernardino, CA this past weekend. That didn’t stop weedheads like Redman and The Game from celebrating, as they can be seen in the clip above, smoking and talking shit on stage right before a small performance of “This Is How We Do.”
2013 has officially kicked back into gear, as everyone makes their way back to work this week. It’s the first official Tuesday of the year, so you know what that means: MISTER CEE’S “BEST OF TUESDAYS” RETURNS! For the 2013 premiere Hot 97′s Throwback At Noon, The Finisher takes it back to the Redman and Method Man catalog.
Not only does he spin tracks that they collaborated on together, but he dives into remixes and classic features they’ve jumped on throughout their career. You know how Mister Cee does: rarities, b-sides and definite favorites. One hour of it!
God bless this Funk Doc & Mef mix, man. Listen to the musical goodness up top.

While we still patiently wait for “Muddy Waters II: Even Muddier,” Funk DoctaSpock does one up for our good people on the East Coast who suffered some muddy waters of their own in this relief freestyle for all of those affected from Hurricane Sandy earlier this month. Redman’s “Gilla House Mixtape” is still coming soon too before we get Muddy Waters II: Even Muddier and then we can prepare to Blackout with Method Man for the third time.
It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Peedi Crakk and Redman, but now that Peedi will be dropping CF5: The Cocaine Edition on November 25, “This That Shit” is one of the first leaks from his upcoming mixtape. Listen to the two spit over a break beat on the track above.
Produced by Jahlil Beats.

Can you believe it’s been 20 years since Redman released his first studio album? Well today on twitter the Reggie announced plans to release a follow-up to his 1996 classic “Muddy Waters,” as he preps up “Muddy Waters II: Even Muddier.” In the past, Funk Doc’s teased about doing a sequel to the original, but with artwork and an official announcement, it looks like Reggie is officially back in grind mode.
Look out for his new Gilla House Mixtape to release as he stated on twitter as well in part of his 20th anniversary campaign. We can’t wait to hear the new music from Reggie!

Before the Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap documentary airs tonight on VH1, here is another preview of the Ice-T film, from a conversation he had with Redman. In the clip, Mr. Cop Killer asks Redman who gained his respect as an MC from the new crop of artists and Red quickly responds with Eminem (remember “Off The Wall“??)
He mentions KRS-One and Slick Rick as his mentors, but Em got his nod because he always kept it G with the people on the bottom, and stayed in the hood (Redman remembers him running through Newark, New Jersey with The Outsidaz) even though he could have sold out and went mainstream from the jump.
Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap airs tonight at 9 PM EST on VH1.
