Redman Confirms Blackout 3 and Muddy Waters 2 Releases

Funk Doctor Spock talks new projects, promises to take fans back to a "'90s kind of sound" on solo LP.

Published March 18, 2014

Redman is prepping a couple of big projects this year, one of which will re-team him with Method Man for their first studio album since 2009's Blackout! 2.

The Brick City-born MC confirmed that Blackout! 3 and Muddy Waters 2 are on his agenda for 2014. And although he and Meth haven't started work on Blackout! 3 just yet, the recording process won't take more than a month, Redman said.

"I record at my studio, so it'll be nothin' to get back in there and knock that s--- down in like two to three weeks," he told MTV News during an interview from Def Jam's 30th anniversary celebration at SXSW last week. "It's just about getting the right beats."

Before Blackout! 3 can move forward, RZA, Rockwilder and Erick Sermon have to produce the necessary beats. The Funk Doctor Spock called out the trio one by one to help push the process, yelling [jokingly] into the MTV camera, "RZA, Erick Sermon, get y'all a--es up! Rockwilder, get yo muthaf---in' a-- up! We need a Blackout! 3 album."

Once the aforementioned beatsmiths sign on, the hip hop duo "can take other producers that wanna be part of the Redman and Method Man experience," he noted.  

Speaking about his solo work, Muddy Waters 2: Even Muddier, a follow up to his 1996 studio album, Redman said he wants to take fans back in time sonically and lyrically. "I'm not trying to top the Muddy Waters album. What I'm doing by naming it Muddy Waters 2 is to let you relive that '90s kind of sound and experience. It's not gonna be sounding too much New Wave. Not too much high hats, you know, the fast high hats. None of that... I'm using samples, so that's why I'm calling it Muddy Waters 2. Even f--kin' muddier!"

Reggie Noble has one more thing to give fans this year, he's planning a sequel to the stoner classic How High. The script was completed last month even though the 43-year-old hasn't secured legal rights to the film. If Universal Pictures passes on How High 2, Redman is prepared to introduce a brand new film with the same concept. "Hopefully we could do that under Universal," he said. "If not, we gonna do our own movie under our own sh-- and it will be heavily marijuana-related." is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
