My #9 favorite MC of all time

Yes indeed!!!!! Mr. Redman a/k/a Funk Doctor Spock a/k/a Reggie Noble. I've been thinking about this for quite some time now, so it was only a matter of time before I confirmed it, and I certainly didn't give any clues either! I've been of fan of this man since his verse on "Hardcore" with EPMD back in 1990. On the mic, Redman could definitely hang with the best of them, as he could deliver witty lyrics and punchlines with the greatest of rugged ease, as well as a sense of humor unlike any other MC in history. The man also knows how to hold down a guest spot and still leave you wanting more. His discography is largely very good to excellent, and his chemistry with Method Man (my #7 favorite MC of all time) remains undeniable to this day. Let's take a look at some of my personal picks for Mr. Redman!

5 of my favorite verses from guest appearances

"Hardcore" (EPMD's Business As Usual)
"Flipmode Squad Meets Def Squad" (Busta Rhymes' The Coming)
"Simon Says (Remix)" (Pharoahe Monch's Internal Affairs)
"4,3,2,1" (LL Cool J's Phenomenon)
"Symphony 2000" (EPMD's Out Of Business)

My favorite Redman album 

Man, this continues to be challenged in every possible by "Muddy Waters", but whenever the subject of favorite Redman album come/came up, I have always mentioned this album, no question. It is his darkest album, as you can listen to it and tell he was on another level, and to me that was a good thing. I also feel it's his most underrated album, and of course my favorite song on here is the classic "Can't Wait". As for the rating, I have went back and forth from 5 to 4.5, and right now, I still have it at a respectable 4.5 star rating, which can change at any time, you know me!

10 of my favorite Redman songs 

This right here is an impressive array of material, and it'll always hold up. In addition to "Blackout 3" with Method Man, I sincerely hope Red drops "Muddy Waters 2: Even Muddier". His last album, officially or otherwise, should not be "Reggie" (and even this is due for a revisit), but either way, Redman has cemented his place in hip hop history and the #9 spot on my favorite MCs list. Question is, who will get #10?!
