Background[edit]

During an interview, Redman stated that Reggie Noble (Redman's own birth name), does the album, not Redman. Redman also said that there is going to be more, "poppish", type songs, rather than his normal "rugged" and "hardcore" songs.[2] In regards to the album, he stated:

Release singles and promotion[edit]

The song titled "Coc Back" was the first single off the new album and features Ready Roc. The song and music video for the single were released simultaneously on October 31, 2009 through many websites.[4] The first promotional single titled "Oh My" was released digitally online on January 25, 2010.[5]

The next single, "Mind on My Money" was also released digitally online on March 2, 2010.[6] A promo track titled "Lookin' Fly" has also been leaked by Redman.[7] A video for "Lookin' Fly" was released on June 9, 2010. As it turns out, none of these tracks will make the final cut of the album, only being promo singles. The first official single is "Def Jammable" and a video for the single was released. This is the first Redman album where Erick Sermon won't be doing any production.[8] The second official single is "Rockin' Wit Da Best" featuring Kool Moe Dee and was released on January 25, 2011.[9]
