Redman: Muddy Waters (1996). From Out of the Mud, Emerged A Masterpiece

Redman: Muddy Waters (1996). From Out of the Mud, Emerged A Masterpiece

B. Cox & J. Owe review Redman's classic third album Muddy Waters. After a successful sophmore album Dare Iz A Darkside and a time when Redman self admitted he was in a dark place and time, the Brick City emcee linked back up with fellow Def Squad member Erick Sermon to close out the ultra competitive year of 1996. Displying a level of emceeing not seen often by even the top emcees and funky, soulful and innovative production by the likes of Sermon and Rockwilder, Redman delivered his best work yet in a way that only he could do; With blunt force punchlines, unforgettable references and his unique brand of humor through a number of classic skits. In the 25 years since its release, it has reached epic porportions among critics, hip-hop peers and fans alike and is often mentioned as one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time.
