Redman : I Get Down Like That (from Dat Underground Shit !!!! 12")





Redman & Roz : I Get Down Like That
Redman :
Def Squad Japan Tour

Let's finish this Hit Squad month with this bootleg looking b side by Redman. I have no idea how legit that record was, I doubt that Def Jam released this as a promo. This 12" mysteriously appeared after Dare Iz A Darkside and before Muddy Waters and has an odd tracklisting with a couple of remixes of Can't Wait, a track called Montage which is an edit of various verses from different songs and this incredible track.

Red is freely flowing over an incredible production, with a little guest spot from an MC named Roz, who later rhymed with the funk doctor on Bricks 2 and Close Ya Doorz. If anyone had any doubt that Redman was the best rapper alive, just listen to this long track.

As I said the other track on the 12" is not anything new to any Redman fan, but it reminded me of a mix of some of Redman best cameos that was put together on a Def Squad under the title Def Squad Japan Tour (with the same kind of thing on the other side with Erick Sermon and Keith Murray). It's a 20 minutes mix with a lot of verses that you probably didn't remember.

You are right, this WL came out of the blue w/o explanation. My man KD used to be in a pool back then and somehow it came his way. We were juiced cuz it was Redman, of course. Not too crazee about the T.V. show or his latter LPs, but I surely will co-sign on Whut? Thee Album, Dare, and Muddy Waters. One of the pioneers in Hiphop.
