Redman speaks on what it was like growing up in Jersey, and how getting kicked out by his mother for selling drugs led him to take rap seriously. During the start of his career, he lived with Erick Sermon and talks all the trouble they got into back in the day. The weed aficionado also discusses how Cypress Hill was and has been a major influence on his music. He also shares some stories on notable rap beefs between LL Cool J and Canibus, and his own with MC Hammer.
