Redman - Hardcore (Promo)

Remember when Reggie was a scary, grimy ass n...

Didn't look like someone you would want to run into on the streets at night. A far cry from the Right Guard peddling, Animal House meets Cheech and Chong comedy thing he did in the latter part of his career.

A few things that I really like about this clip.

1) The classic Erick and Parrish cold lampin' pose.

2) Hurricane Gloria getting smushed by Reggie.

3) The cameraman getting Blair Witched.

Bonus Unpopular Opinion: Redman was really dope on this track doing the alliteration thing, but I've always preferred P's perfectly painted portrait (see what I did there?) of a grimy ass New York hip hop show.

His debut is still my favourite album of his by a long shot.

Didn't he get robbed in Canada when he was touring there and was out on the street giving it large to a bunch of local grimey dudes?

Yeh second MF (sorry, "MC") on that, although I love some of Darkside as well.

I'm hearing you about P on that tune Booth, but Reggie destroys it.

Never heard that story before, but I did hear that Keith Murray once caught a beatdown in Toronto.

Can anyone identify the "niggas" sample(s) in P's verse?

(Don't Worry) If There's A Hell Below, We're All Gonna Go by Curtis Mayfield off his first self titled LP.
