Redman is in Wu Tang? Who knew?

The Grammy-winning, How High-acting, Cribs-appearing, post-EPMD rapper Redman (aka Reggie Noble) is doing promotion for his next album, Reggie, due out in December.

During a recent interview while touring Europe, Noble came out as the 11th member of Staten Island's prolific hip-hop collective, Wu-Tang Clan:

"I am a Wu-Tang member and Method Man, he been a Death Squad member way before I was a Wu member," Redman said.

"I was like a Wu member but I wasn't official. But E. [Erick] Sermon made him Meth a death squad member back in the day. I became a Wu member about 5 years ago. I am the 11th member of Wu."

Besides the head-scratching grammar, what the effe is going on here?

What does he mean when he says he became a member five years ago? Why didn't anyone tell us? Is there an initiation ceremony? Did they need to make room by kicking out Masta Killa or Cappadonna?

Red's invective about his movie career is equally confusing:

"Universal owns the mother fucking rights to How High. They own the names, they own the characters, they own the whole fucking shit. If Red and Meth do a movie, we might can't call it How High. Only person that can get us out of that is Keenan Ivory Wayans."

Keenan Ivory Wayans? What is he like the black Lorne Michaels?
