Early life

Reginald Reggie Noble, better known as Redman, grew up in Newark, New Jersey, with his mother, Darlene, father, Eddie, and his sister Rosalyn. She was a rapper, too, with the stage name Roz and has been on several of Redman’s songs in her career.

Redman studied at 13th Avenue Elementary School, followed by Speedway Avenue Elementary School, and graduated from high school at West Side High School, NY. After graduating from high school, Redman enrolled in Montclair State University but got expelled during his first academic year due to poor performance.

Redman was living with his mother at 16 but got kicked out of the family home after his mom, Darlene, found out that he was involved in cocaine distribution.

By the time Redman turned 18, he had started to work as a DJ at house parties under the name DJ Kut-Killa, until he got the attention of Erick Sermon, part of the duo EPMD.

After a short while, Redman moved into Erick’s apartment in Long Island and started going on tours with EPMD. His big break came while on tour with them; he freestyled every letter of the alphabet and gained popularity, which is how he got noticed and signed for Def Jam.




Career

Redman’s rapping career started taking off in 1990 when he performed on two tracks on the “Business as Usual” album by the EPMD duo. By 1992, Redman released his first album, “Whut? Thee Album”, which earned him the title ‘Rap Artist of the Year’ in ‘The Source’ magazine.

His second album, “Dare Iz a Darkside”, released in 1994, reached the #13 position on the “Billboard” 200 charts and the #1 position for the Top R&B/Hip-Hop album.

His 1996 “Muddy Waters” and 2000 “Doc’s da Name” albums reached the #1 position on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop albums charts. Some of the biggest singles on these two albums featured artists like Erick Sermon, K-Solo, and Busta Rhymes.

Redman’s song “Do What You Feel” got a feature on the GTA: Liberty City Stories soundtrack, and he featured a piece on 2Pac’s album “All Eyez On Me”.

In 1999, the first album of Redman and Method Man was released, “Blackout!” which reached #3 on the “Billboard” 200 charts and was certified Platinum.

By 2001, Redman and Method Man had released the soundtrack for “How High”, and the song “Part II” with Toni Braxton was certified Gold.

The same year Redman released “Malpractice”, his 5th studio album, and DJ Kool and Adam F. were some of the featured artists. In 2004, Redman released “Ill At Will Vol. 1”, and in 2005 he released “Ill At Will Vol. 2”, followed by the release of “Red Gone Wild: Thee Album” in 2007. “Blackout! 2” from Redman and Method Man was released in 2009, and the album got to the #2 position on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums charts.

His next release was the album “Reggie” in 2010, followed by the 2015 release of “Mudface”. In 2020 he released “3 Joints” on his own record label - Gilla House. Redman has had featured appearances on other artists’ albums, such as Wu-Tang Clan, Pink, Snoop Dogg, and 88-Keys.

Film projects

Redman has had over 30 appearances in movies and TV shows, one of the most famous being the “How High” (2001) movie, in which he appeared with Method Man in the lead roles.

The rest of the projects he has worked on are: “Scary Movie 3” (2003), “Method & Red” (2004), “Seed of Chucky” (2004), and “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot” (2019).[2]

Personal life

Unsurprisingly, Redman has tried his best to keep his personal life as private as possible and has succeeded to a reasonable level.

Redman has been married once, and his wife’s name is unfamiliar to the public. They had been engaged for a while before getting married. They have three children from that marriage.

He had two more children from a previous relationship, but his first two kids were raised by his wife and him.

His relationship with his parents and sister has been unknown since he was kicked out of the house when he was 16.

Redman is widely known for advocating for the laws on the personal use of marijuana, and the rapper himself has sold and distributed weed in his earlier days. When he was asked what he would tell his children on the topic, Redman stated that he does not smoke in front of them and will always explain the downsides of being a long-term cannabis user but leave the decision to them.

In addition, in 2001, Redman had a dedicated episode on MTV Cribs, an episode that would remain one of the most iconic ones to this day.

Reportedly, most of the celebrities that had been a part of MTV’s show had rented out mansions to show off to the public. Redman, however, decided to show his two-bedroom, two-bathroom home and everything there is in it, as it looks like every day. The people loved this humble and humanly side, which was refreshing as opposed to all other flashy episodes.




Controversies

  • Arrested over eight times for drug possession

In an interview with DJ Vlad, Redman confirmed getting arrested for possession of marijuana over seven or eight times, two of which were arrests for “​​Possession with an intention to distribute”. Luckily, the rapper didn’t have to go to jail, but he has been caught driving and smoking on multiple occasions and having marijuana in his car.[3]

Redman has always been open and honest on the topic of using marijuana on a daily basis, and in the same interview, he claims that he is one of the people that “wake up to it, live it, walk it, and talk it”.

Conclusion

Redman is worth $10 million as of 2022, and he still lives in the same house he had presented in the worldwide known MTV Cribs episode.

He is still making music and living in his hometown, where he grew up and made a name for himself.
