As anyone who’s ever seen How High or his classic Cribs episode can attest, Redman is one of the grimiest and most entertaining human beings alive; so it’s not even remotely surprising that he’s also one of the grimiest and most entertaining rappers alive. Case in point: Red’s new track Coc Back, an absolute banger that’s the first single off his new album. Coc Back is everything we could possibly want from a Red cut: intensely kinetic and heavily percussive production from ThreeSixty, a damn good guest verse from Ready Roc and, of course, hilariously high lines from Red like: “Blunts got my mind right, 16 bars bout the size of a Klondike.” Ok, so the man’s not working to end world hunger, but I defy you to name a more consistently entertaining emcee. His confusingly titled new album Reggie Noble “0” 9 ½ is due out in December. Until then, keep it locked to DJBooth.net for all the latest.
