Reginald Noble or famously known by his stage name Reggie or “Redman” is a rap artist, actor, composer, producer, DJ, and voice actor. He was born on April 17, 1970, in Newark, New Jersey, United States.
He grew up in the neighborhood of New Jersey and had his education in Speedway Avenue School, 13th Avenue School, and West Side High School.
At 16, he went to Montclair State University in 1987, where he was then expelled during his freshman years due to his poor academic performance.
Out of school, Redman went back and stayed with his mother. Eventually, his mother had to kick him out because of his involvement in selling cocaine.
When Redman was at the age of 18, he became a DJ-MC that went by the name “DJ Kut-Killa”. He was doing freestyle with his vinyl records with different cultural genres like instrumental funk music and hip hop tracks.
His first stage was at house parties and parks in New Jersey and New York. While playing a DJ for Lords of the Underground, Redman was discovered by Erick Sermon of the EMPD. Eric, seeing Redman play, already saw his potential in music.
The day after, they talked and not long for three months, Redman moved to Long Island and stayed with Eric in his apartment.
Redman now has been touring with the EMPD, and as part of the crew, he did everything to help from carrying luggage to stage appearances doing freestyle rap music.
In 1990, at an EMPD show held in New York, Eric invited Redman on stage to perform a freestyle rap. Redman rap about the changes of his life using a unique approach of using every letter of the alphabet.

Redman was also known to have released an album with the most tracks produced by the artist himself. At this time, he continued to partner with his former mentor Eric in producing his songs.
His third album was released in 1996, titled Muddy Waters. This album caught the eye of many critics and received a favorable response to it. It featured two of the album’s hit single Whateva Man and It’s Like That from the Top Billboard’s hit songs.
The songs in the album were also featured in a video game called Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. With its recognitions in different areas, the album was given a Gold Certification by the Recording Industry Association of America in 1997.
