DJ Clark Kent Tells All: The Stories Behind His Classic Records (Part 2)

Redman "Dis Is Brick City" (2007)

Album: Red Gone Wild: Thee Album

Label: Def Jam

DJ Clark Kent: “I like that song! That’s a Millie Jackson sample. All I know is, I got the ability to produce for Redman. Ahhh, Redman, dog?!? Who rhymes like Redman? He’s crazy.

“I was always cool with Redman. And he was like [imitating Redman], ‘Yo Clark, come on man, we was supposed to have done records a long time ago. Just come to the studio.’ And then Erick [Sermon] called me and was like, ‘Yo, Red is asking you to come to the studio.’ And then Rockwilder calls me, and he’s like, ‘Are you getting on Red’s album? Because he keeps saying that you’re coming to the studio.’ So I’m like, ‘Oh shit, I gotta go to the studio.’

“So I go to the studio, and I play him like ten beats. And he’s like, ‘I’m gonna use this one for me and [Method Man], but this shit I’m doing now!’ And he let the beat play, and he’s like, ‘Dis Is Brick City!’ And I’m like, ‘Wow. You just went crazy.’

“I was just happy to be working with Redman. I think he’s super ill. [Him and B.I.G.] had a lot of respect for each other.”
