Redman drops some knowledge.
When it comes to bars, there are few who can match wits with the likes of Reggie Noble. Known throughout the game as one of the most underrated lyricists, Redman has influenced countless emcees, including the legendary Eminem. Suffice it to say, the dude is an authority on lyrics, and his opinion on the topic should be respected accordingly. Today, Red has joined the likes of Royce Da 5'9" and T.I. for an installment of BET's "Rate The Bars" series, which finds emcees ranking anonymous bars on a scale from one to ten.
In the clip, Redman ranks bars from himself, Yo Gotti, Jay-Z, 2 Chainz, Phonte, Keith Murray, Royce Da 5'9" and more. To nobody's surprise, he's feeling his own lyrics, but let's be honest - his bars from Ghostface Killah's "Buck 50" are fire. He also speaks highly about Jay-Z's "Death Of Autotune" bars, which he praises for their overall message. On the opposite side of the spectrum, one of the most hilarious moments comes when Redman dives into Yo Gotti's "Rake It Up." After reading through Gotti's tale about making love to, and subsequently tipping a stripper, Reggie Noble has a few words of advice for the rapper.
"First of all, you don't make love to a stripper because she's fucking already," said Redman. "You making love to a stripper, and you still have to tip her? Damn." He's also impressed with Yo Gotti's generous tip, stating "shiit, if you drop twenty-thousand ones in front of me and told me I could keep it, I'ma tell you you that n***a too."
