Flashback Friday: Tamia and Redman

This Friday, let’s look at two late-90s albums that have been mostly forgotten in this decade.


Tamia (1998)

I don’t give out 5 stars for albums often. In fact, I’ve only done it once since I’ve been blessing y’all with reviews in 2008. But if I was around 10 years earlier, this album would have gotten all five of those precious snowflakes. Tamia’s debut is masterful, a banger from beginning to end. It really deserved more shine.

Redman, Muddy Waters (1996)

Redman has been hinting at a Muddy Waters sequel for years now. Sequel albums usually give me the bubble guts though, so I’ll stick with the original, easily Reggie’s best album to date.

“Case Closed,” featuring Rockwilder and Napalm
