Now matter what he does, Redman is always going to best known for his collaborations with Method Man. Not only is the duo responsible for the classic album Blackout! and the stoner comedy "How High," but they were so popular for a while they were doing frickin' Right Guard commercials.

It's been 15 years since Blackout!, and over 20 years since Redman released his debut solo album, "Whut? Thee Album." Red just got back from touring Europe with Method Man -- he said he really liked the old world because "they still enjoy that ’90s sound" -- and the pair will highlight the Smokers Club Tour, which begins next month.

In between, Redman sat down with XXL for in interview. In it, Redman talks about his buddy Method and his love of funk music. The 44-year old also explains that he sometimes feels under-appreciated, but also acknowledges there is an upside to not being as big as Diddy or Jay-Z.

"Yeah, sometimes I get into the underrated motion," Red told the Website. But you know what? If everybody was super, then who’s super? You gotta have some cats that make… I had to look at it like, if I wasn't in the same position that I was, I wouldn't be as comfortable moving around the world as I am. I love my comfortableness moving without bodyguards, or without this or without that, or I can go and bring my kids places without bodyguards, or be with my family without all the nonsense. I get noticed as an artist that has 50 million sales, but it’s more of a, “Yeah, you that nigga, Red."
Is Redman underrated?
