Redman is “On Vacation” with Moonbootica
Don't hate, congratulate Redman for showing love to the other side of New Jersey. Forget if he looks like a fish out of water, he hasn't gone all the way off the deep end. Our bonus video shows the Brick City representative still in his (*cough*) element.
Redman teamed up with German deejay’s KoweSix and Tobitob known as Moonbootica for their new single, “I’m On Vacation,” from the album Our Disco Is Louder Than Yours. Like the song or not, Reggie Noble is being himself—still lyrical, and funny. Comedy is at the forefront of the whole video, directed by Harris Hodovic who pictures Redman amongst a type of crew like the Jersey Shore. Musically “Vacation” may sound like a departure for Redman, but he’s always repped New Jersey. Why hate?
If you’re not fond of Redman doing crossover records, that’s cool. Not everyone came around when Redman jumped on a record with homegirl from Shaolin—Christina Aguilera. It got him a Grammy nomination, remember that? But we get it. You’d rather see Reggie in his natural state on records you can nod to, not fist pump. Well, that hasn’t changed one bit. See the Funk Doc flow over “No Church in the Wild” surrounded by what keeps him in his element.
