5 Things Redman Wants for Christmas

Redman

“I remember the first time I got my Tyco Nite-Glow racing track,” Redman tells Rap-Up.com. “I was very, very pleased and happy with Santa.” For a man who no longer believes in jolly ol’ Saint Nick, the “Def Jammable” rhymer grins from ear to ear when relishing over the memory of his once-prized possession.

These days, Red, who drops his seventh solo album Reggie today, doesn’t get too many presents during the holidays. Why? Because the New Jersey native would rather see his family indulge in tearing gift wrap and breaking open boxes than make a wish list for himself. With children spread out from New Jersey to Atlanta, he’ll be busy “doing the daddy thing” when December 25 arrives.

Redman

While Redman prepares to release his seventh solo album, Redman Presents… Reggie, on December 7, the New Jersey MC promises fans can expect to hear a slight departure from his earlier works. On the effort, it’s apparent he’s ditched the moniker legions of fans have referred to him by for years, but Red’s playful style is still ever-present on tracks like the fitting “Def Jammable,” where he rhymes choice lines like, “I’m tryna be set for life like a Jew kid, and me not runnin’ the block like a New Kid, that’s like Hov not doin’ Blueprint.”
