Doc's da Name 2000 is the fourth studio album by American rapper Redman.[11] It was a top seller, initially shipping platinum in sales and reaching platinum sales in less than two months. It peaked at #3 on The Billboard 200 and had three songs ("I'll Bee Dat", "Da Goodness", "Let Da Monkey Out") that charted in the Billboard top 100. Although "I Don't Kare" was never released as a single, the song received moderate play on the radio, further increasing the profile of the artist.

The song "Let Da Monkey Out" was featured in the 2005 George Clooney film 'Syriana'.[12]
