Overall Rating: 4.75/5

I don't feel right giving it classic status (5/5) but it is however a very, very, very dope album. No track goes below 4/5 for me and the skits are all enjoyable. I can listen to this album all the way through and my head doesn't stop nodding (with the exception of the skits). Redman comes at his best lyrically and the production is great. If you like Redman this is a must-have. Recommended.

Redman was my favorite MC for the four years between Whut and Muddy Waters. This is probably my least favorite Redman album, but not because it's his worst (which it isn't). I loved Whut and Darkside and expected more of the same, but this album didn't deliver. It didn't have the same dark feel that the first two albums had. I don't know if it was a change in what he wanted to do musically or he just felt the need to attempt to blow up and thought this would accomplish it. Either way, I'm not feelin it. The album has a handful of dope tracks, and the soda skit is funny, but overall it felt oddly upbeat coming from Redman. Since then he's gotten pretty much unlistenable and I blame this album's success. Yes, I'm bitter because my favorite MC dissapointed me.


3/5

4/5

I always wonder what happened to Redman. He is such a capable emcee but now makes pretty piss poor music.

He recently released two mixtapes (Ill At Will Pt 1 & 2 ) and his new album "Red Gone Wild" should be out this year

Muddy Waters = 4 / 5

I wouldn't say horrible but like most mixtapes they are pretty half assed. The first one had some nice tracks though ("The Saga Continues", "I See Dead People").
