And the cartoon band want the rapper to appear on their next album...

GORILLAZ want to recruit REDMAN for their next album – and they’ve remixed the rapper’s new single for its UK release, NME.COM can reveal.

Here’s Redman as he might look as part of the 2-D Gorillaz.

Cartoon drummer Russel and Dan The Automator are responsible for the remix of Redman‘s ‘Let’s Get Dirty (I Can’t Get In Da Club)’ , which is released as a double A-side with ‘Smash Sumthin” through Def Jam on August 27.
