Redman, Eric and the mothership,
This review is from: Whut? The Album (Audio CD)
In 1992, Eric Sermon once again dusted off the mothership and set off on a funk journey with his partner-in-rhyme(freshly released from the psycho ward) and took the listener hostage on a mission marked "extreme danger" into the inner-psyche of Reggie Noble a.k.a The Funkadelic a.k.a Redman. Few thought they'd survive or that we'd end up thanking them afterwards.
Such is the experience of listening to Redman's debut. Heavily-layered funk samples form the backing to Redman's raw and often hysterical delivery leaving you not sure whether to laugh or back away in disgust. Starting as a mental patient, then an HIV carrier, he eventually morphs into "Superman Lover" (his blunt-smoking, cat-saving and overly-sexed alter ego) and the identity crisis is complete. Not for the faint-hearted (or the politically correct) "Whut!Thee Album" has its tongue firmly planted in its cheek and shows Redman/Reggie (or whoever he chooses to be) a rapper of unique imagination and humour.
