Word on the street is that Redman is on the verge of extricating himself from Def Jam’s shackles. According to some unconfirmed reports, Red is unhappy with the way Def Jam has handled the promotion behind his new album, Red Gone Wild.
On a related note, Red is hard at work on Muddy Waters 2 , which he says would be strictly for his core fans and only hoped to produce 50,000 units of the album domestically. Other upcoming Redman projects include: How High 2 (the movie), Blackout 2 (with Method Man), a new Def Squad album, and a Gillahouse compilation.
Red Gone Wild: Thee Album is due out on March 27, 2007.
