A New Jersey native, Reginald Noble, better known as Redman, is a rapper and actor. Redman kicked off his hip-hop career during the early 1990s, unveiling his solo debut, "Whut? Thee Album," in '92. He later forged a close partnership with Method Man of the Wu-Tang Clan, and their first album as a duo, "Blackout!," proved to be a huge success. In 2001, Redman and Method Man shifted their ongoing collaboration from music to movies, co-starring in the big-screen stoner comedy "How High," where they played slacker students enrolled in Harvard University. The duo also voiced rapping pixies in the cartoon "The Fairly OddParents" and its movie spin-off, and appeared in the short-lived '04 culture-clash sitcom "Method & Red." On his own, Redman also had a supporting role in the horror/comedy movie "Seed of Chucky." He issued his album "Red Gone Wild" in '07, and, two years later, reunited with Method Man for the record "Blackout! 2."
