Redman – American rapper and actor
Redman was born on 17 April 1970 in New Jersey. His real name is Reginald "Reggie" Noble. He is also known under such pseudonyms as Doc, Funk Doctor Spock, and Red. Reggie’s parents wanted him to get a good education. However, in 1987, the young man was kicked out of Montclair State University for bad grades.

Noble started writing rap.
In the early 1990’s, Red got his first professional music experience with the band EPMD. They released two singles "Hardcore" and "Brothers on My Jock".
