"Y'all about to see this dude catch a bad one, baby!"

Redman is a featured fighter and one of the most prominent characters in Def Jam series. He is a playable in Def Jam Vendetta, Def Jam Fight For NY, Def Jam Fight for NY: The Takeover and Def Jam Icon.


The Doctor is in! The funk doc, that is. For ten straight years, the Newark, New Jersey resident Redman has been delivering smash hits. His four solo albums (Whut? Thee Album, Dare Iz a Darkside, Muddy Waters, and Doc's Da Name 2000) and two collaboration joints (Blackout! with Method Man, and El Nino with Def Squad) have placed the rapper in the hip hop hall of fame. He upholds his reputation in hip hop by remaining true to his funk-driven beats and unconventional rhymes. Now Redman intends to stretch the boundaries with his fifth solo album, Malpractice . In addition to releasing hits year after year, Redman was recognized with a Grammy nomination and a Source Award.


In Def Jam Fight For NY, Redman plays "Doc", a trusted fighter and a caporegime in D-Mob's crew. Since he's a natural comedian and prankster, Doc is constantly playing tricks on the other members of the crew. He and Blaze share a tight friendship. As with most of D-Mob's inner circle, he fights most of his matches at Club 357—on the days he actually decides to get out of bed, that is.

Role In Def Jam Vendetta[]

Redman's role is minor in Def Jam Vendetta compared to the later installments. He fights along side Method Man in a tag team match against the player and Manny.

Role In Def Jam Fight For NY[]

Redman, as Doc, sleeps throughout most of the game until after D-Mob's incarceration. Afterwards, Doc becomes a driving force in taking Crow's Clubs and made a bet with the player, which resulted in him losing. After the player starts working for Crow, he tries to defend Club 357 (D-Mob's final club), but unfortunately fails. He is last seen in the final showdown between D-Mob's Crew and Crow's Crew.

Role In Def Jam Fight For NY: The Takeover[]

If fighting for the Staten Island Crew, Redman will be the second to express his desire to become the new O.G. The protagonist must defeat him at Terminal Offload before becoming the new O.G.

If fighting for the Brooklyn Crew, Redman will send a message "inviting" the protagonist to The Barge offering a proposition. As it turns out, it was nothing more than a set up to lure the protagonist to him.

Role In Def Jam Icon[]

Redman's role varies in Def Jam Icon, he could be a unsigned artist that the player could sign after he signs his first artist or he could already be signed to Troy Dollar's record label.
