If you’re confused like me about the status of Redman’s career, you are not alone. Reggie quietly dropped a few weeks ago and if you missed out, you aint missing nothing. After scrapping the Reggie Noble 9 1/2 concept, this album is an attempt to show EPMD’s protege’s growth and range. No “Sooperman Lover” tunes. No skits. But sadly, there’s very few good musical moments like the last song, “Tiger Style Crane”. The lyrical punchlines are mostly big misses. But the even bigger question is: Where’s the funk, Funk Doc? The musical backdrop provided by a gang of guest producers is bouncy club dribble. There’s even the occasional use of autotune and a Faith Evans-assisted tribute to MJ (“All I Do”) which is just plain bizarre. I still don’t know what to make of this. Please don’t make me listen again. Bring Redman back!
