REDMAN GOES IN ON DEF JAM



REDMAN GOES IN ON DEF JAM 

Redman is the longest runny signee to Def Jam records and he's got something to say. He told XXL something that we've heard from both Shyne and Nas.

You’ve been on Def Jam your whole career. How do you feel about Def Jam now as opposed to the 1990’s, when you first signed there?

Well [now], Def Jam are not leaders. They’re not leaders plain and simple, because it’s changed. They’re not leaders like they used to be. In the ’90’s they were leaders. They were the label that you considered the mechanics of hip-hop; they’re under the car. They were the ones under the car getting greasy, getting dirty, fixing that muffler that drags when everybody loved that s**tand was following it. Now they’re playing the follower. They’re followers, they’re not building artists no more like they should. And that’s just the game. It’s not they fault. We got into the Internet world and s**tis moving fast and came so fast and came so quick that labels couldn’t exist, but still they got the money and they’re a company. They’re supposed to adjust. I think they need to get that going. Being a label, being on top.
