Redman Puts A Hazy Twist On New Mixtape, 'Remixxes'

On his latest mixtape Remixxes, Redman gets inspired by everybody. Reggie has handpicked 17 hip-hop and R&B gems and applied his own toker-friendly lyrics to them.

He converts Justin Timberlake's "Rock Your Body" into a smokers anthem called "Smoke Wit Me," singing "Don't be so quick to smoke away." He does the same thing for the Jay Z and Kanye West Watch the Throne track "No Church In The Wild," which he converts to "Sourdeezal." Redman replaces Frank Ocean's feature on the original tune ("What's a mob to a king? What's a king to a God? What's a God to a non-believer who don't believe in anything?") with the lyrics "I smoke purp to the haze/ Smoke haze to the cheech/ Smoke cheeze to the kush/ Smoke kush to the Sourdeezal."

Redman dives into other tracks by Jadakiss, Big Sean, Twista and even turns Stevie Wonder's "Key of Life" into a duet titled "Smoke All Day" featuring neo-soul artist Melanie Rutherford. "I'll be smoking weed all day," sings Redman where Wonder would usually croon "I'll be loving you always."

Remixxes is an entertaining spin to say the least, and the perfect companion for your 4:20. Spin Redman's new joint below.

Prior to the song premiere, Minaj shared her first public statement on the death of Nipsey Hussle. The Queens native explained that she wasn’t on the internet at the time of Hussle’s murder, but wanted to send condolences to Lauren London, and the rest of his family.

“When he passed I didn’t get a chance to be online at that time,” Minaj told Power 106's DJ Carisma. “Lauren London happens to be somebody that I adore. I felt like my heart ripped out when I heard [that he was killed]. I just wanted to finally send my condolences to his family and his fans.”

Earlier in the interview, Minaj sent love to her fans in Saudi Arabia after canceling her appearance at the Jedah World Festival over the country’s treatment of women, and members of the LGBTQ community. Minaj added that she turned down $1.5 million by pulling out of the performance. She also confirmed that she will be heading out on tour after the release of her upcoming new album.
