11 Times Eminem Redman Proved That Real Recognize Real
Redman boldly declared that he's 'your favorite rapper's favorite' during his 2015 BET Hip-Hop Awards cypher this week, and if Eminem's your fav, he might be right.
You see, Reggie Noble may not be as widely known as Em, but he definitely had a hand in influencing Slim. And since some fans seemed as nominations ]? That's f--kin' ridiculous,' Redman told VladTV of Shady's epic year. 'That's some motherf--kin' power. Big up to Em. He always shows love regardless.'
Just like Em remade 'Pick It Up,' Redman paid tribute to Shady by remaking his classic 'Just Don't Give A F--k' in 2012, adding the Funk Doc flavor to the SSLP cut.
Em went back to namechecking Redman in 2013 on MMLP2 's 'Baby.' 'This wretched is what you get when you mix Treach with a Jada,' Em rhymed on the track. 'Then combine 'em with Method Man and Redman.' That's a powerful combo, Em.
Redman reminisced about his 'Off The Wall' experience in 2013, naming it his favorite moment with Slim. 'Being at Eminem's studio doing 'Off The Wall,'' he told Complex . 'We was goin at it on the mic!' Imagine being a fly on the wall for that session.
Don't all true homies have #TBT-worthy pics like this? Just peep this one Reggie shared this year.
Redman returned Em's ''Til I Collapse' nod here. 'I highly respect Eminem,' Funk Doc told VladTV. 'I rank him up there with Jay Z, Biggie and Nas.' That's good company right there.
Wanna know how much it meant for Eminem to make a beat for Reggie? 'To make the beat for Nas, to do anything like that, making a beat for Redman was like, 'I’m making a f--king beat for Redman,'' Em told Shade45's Sway Calloway earlier this year. 'Those guys are some of my favorites of all time...Doing sh-t like that is hands down the best reward this could have ever brought.'
Ready for more Redman? This week he told HNHH that he's gonna release his next album, Mudface , on Nov. 15 while his Muddy Waters 2 LP is due next Spring.
