Redman – “Put It Down”
Redman is working hard â€“ to get you out of your pants (pockets for those who want keep their pants on) and other far less exciting things like trying to make a return from oblivion, for example. This commando-style club track "Put It Downâ€ receives the standard Timbaland treatment: chirping bits of disco are caught hanging in the air, in other words, think of it like a harmless swoon of space-age debris. It's not entirely clear if this was actually intended to be a club record, a self-serving reintroduction, an excuse to use a Timbaland beat, or all of the above. What's most important, though, is that Redman knows how to greet a vast uniform of complete space (and women) and ends up saying something even half-remarkable, "grown ass hell nigga I don't make gang signs / I flip modes like Rah Digga". His subject matter is infinite at random moments making Red randomly great, at times. Redman better continue looking for nothing becauseâ€¦well nothing could be better, in his case. - Rodney Dugue
