Redman Releases The Hilarious Video For "Smack Tha Sh!t Outcha" Single

You betta duck when the Funk Doc cocks back his slap hand.

The one thing you can count on in hip-hop is that rap legend and supreme lyricist, Reggie "Redman" Noble will always deliver the rugged and raw with a side of humor. That is a welcomed wave of balance in these times of extra thugness by rappers that are hardly as hard as they claim. Red, though? I bet he would really "Smack Tha Sh!t Outcha" like the video title for his newest single. The slow flow funk track compliments Red's comedic side as he presents situations he might find himself in like, "Women always throwing hints when they rent due/ and I throw a hint right back, 'What the [email protected] you gon' do?' Go get your money you brought ya wig outta/ Before I pay ya rent I'll smack the sh!t outcha..."

The second track of his just-released three-song EP titled, 3 Joints (get it? Redman...weed lover...joints...yeah) is sandwiched between "Its a Banguh" and "Zugga" with the former being an uptempo reworked beat version of his and partner Method Man's hit "Da Rockwilder." The latter is a bongo-based neck breaker with punchlines galore.

Video wise, this one is a continuous scene of Red putting the smackdown Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson style on anyone in his path. He's an equal opportunity palm and backhand slapper as well, from little people to Grandparents can get some five fingers to the face action.  Mr. Noble also played double duty in this video as he took on the director's title for the Riveting Entertainment production. He recently did a career-spanning interview with yours truly on the new RivNow.com show "The Real Ones." Check it out below.

Premiere: pineappleCITI Overcomes A Near-Death Experience In "Recognize" Video

Being a woman in rap already has its challenges, especially when you're more focused on finding success through your lyrics instead of showcasing your body. But in 2016, pineappleCITI had a lot more on the line after a horrible accident.

The video for "Recognize" revisits a difficult time in pineappleCITI's life. In September 2016, the New Jersey rapper/songwriter got into a vicious car crash that left her unable to walk for two years. After a dramatized reenactment of the crash, the visual includes real photos and footage of pineappleCITI's road to recovery through physical training. It's bookended by her popping bottles and throwing cash with a group of friends, and her seeing a billboard with her face, showing the fruits of her hard work.

“Now more than ever is a time for us to be as authentic as possible," pineappleCITI told VIBE. "I hope to inspire others by showing my journey from rock bottom back up."

While pineappleCITI is a mainstay at VIBE, this video displays a different side of the new Red Bull Records singee's story. The song showcases her versatile, melodic raps, and the video shows just how much she's overcome. Watch the video for "Recognize" above.
