Consistency has always been the key for Redman. Throughout his nine-year career, the Newark, N.J., native has steadily nurtured his fan base with each solo album (Whut? Thee Album, Dare Iz a Darkside, Muddy Waters, and Doc's Da Name 2000) selling more than its predecessor. Also known as Funk Doctor Spock, Redman keeps the formula the same on Malpractice, offering a balance of the crossover-friendly ("Let's Get Dirty," the album's first single) and the more hardcore ("Uh-Huh"). Redman also stays true to form with the fifth installment of his "Soopaman Luva" saga—this time offering "Soopaman Luva 5 (Part I)" and "Soopaman Luva 5 (Part II)." Rounding out Malpractice are guest spots from Method Man, George Clinton, and Keith Murray, among others.—RH
