Redman is looking for the next super producer

Redman needs YOUR beats. Pick a Tracklib sample of choice, get to work, and cross your fingers that Reggie Noble thinks you got what it takes. If you're really lucky you might end up working with him on a new Redman banger...

Use any Tracklib sample(s)

Make a beat using any sample from Tracklib. Jazz, funk, music from one of the Tracklib-curated collections, flip children's songs or go punk, or explore one of the recent additions by exotica pioneer Les Baxter and reggae/dub legends Sly & Robbie... Anything is allowed. As long as the song contains one or more Tracklib samples.

Last year’s competition with Wu-Tang Clan’s Inspectah Deck led to thousands of submissions. So make sure to go all-out for Redman... As expressed by the man himself: "I want a FIRE beat using a Tracklib sample. I don't care if it's R&B, pop, rap, club... If I'm not getting that ugly face, we ain't listening to it." Better start digging for the right sample(s) to bring Redman that heat.

About Redman

Early last year, Redman got in the news for paying $9.000 to clear a James Brown sample for the sequel to his 'Muddy Waters' album. That doesn't only show he understands the value of sampling, but also gives away his dedication to his music. The emcee, actor, producer, inexhaustible live performer, and founding member of Def Squad is eight studio albums deep. Plus four collaborative albums with Erick Sermon and Method Man respectively, and a ton of guest appearances with legends like MC Eiht, The Notorious B.I.G., Busta Rhymes, A Tribe Called Quest, LL Cool J, Gorillaz, and countless others.

And there ain't no slowing down for the New Jersey emcee and blunt ambassador. Most recently expressed on a new track called "Hip Hop 2020," an ode to hip-hop featuring Mr. Green & Mr. Cream. "A young n*gga selling weed, imitating Run DMC, then I ran into EPMD..."

"I want a FIRE beat using a Tracklib sample. I don't care if it's R&B, pop, rap, club... If I'm not getting that ugly face, we ain't listening to it."
