The last of hip-hop's great party albums, Whut? never had to take itself too seriously and Redman made sure you didn't either. His weed-fueled rhyme-flow sizzled on the album's many P-Funk inspired tracks (courtesy of EPMD's Erick Sermon), and many songs ("Time 4 Sum Aksion," "Rated R"), jumped with an energy that tore the roof off and burned the house down. But more than just churn out bouncy club anthems, Redman showcased a wit ("How to Roll a Blunt") and laid-back flair ("Tonight's the Night") that helped plant his foot as one of hip-hop's most vibrant MCs. --Oliver Wang

"Simply hilarious and great rap album from the "Golden Years" of hip-hop. Redman's solo debut is one of the best of it's era and is at the top of the heap along with Dr. Dre's The Chronic, Ice Cube's Death Certificate, Cypress Hill's [i]Cypress Hill, Wu-Tang Clan's Enter The Wu-Tang. Absolutely essential to any rap fan's collection. You won't be disappointed!"
A Fun, Humorous, and Creative Debut (Rating: 10 out of 10- -

"Redman has been a artist who shows how fun rap can be. After debuting on EPMD's "Hardcore" from their Business as Usual, he had a buzz creating for him. With his humor and creativity on his debut album Whut? Thee Album, you can tell he was gonna have major popularity in the rap game back in late '92/early '93. His smoked out lyrics over some funky production done by Erick Sermon is why this album is so enjoyable. It's unique, and creative, and hasn't been duplicated by anyone, not even Reggie Noble himself.
With such hit singles like "Time 4 Sum Aksion", and the classic "Tonight's da Night" gave him the exposure that he really needed. On the latter track, if you haven't heard the beat, you need to listen to it. Another great favorite of mine is "Blow Your Mind", another single from this album. The bonus is that there is a remix, which I believe sounds better than the original. "How To Roll A Blunt" has to be one of the most creative tracks out there, as Red breaks down how to roll a blunt and who and who not to smoke with.
When Red isn't clowning around on the mic, he can spit some great songs. "Watch Yo Nuggets" with Erick Sermon is dope. "Da Funk" and "So Ruff" Redman experiments the G-Funk style of rap. "Jam 4 U" shows how charismatic he is on the mic. Another great track is well produced is "I'm Bad". The great series of "A Day Of Sooperman Lover" begins here on this album.
Many will find Redman to be at his best here on this album. I personally agree that he is a real dope and unique artist, and he showed it here on his debut. He would follow up later on with more wonderful albums (my favorite is Dare Iz a Darkside) and great colabs with different artists (mainly with Method Man), but this is one I find essential. Erick Sermon does the majority of the production, and uses a lot of recognizable samples on here. An essential classic. Peace.
