Method Man and Redman

Method Man and Redman

Biography

Method Man and Redman are the rare industry gimmick that matured into a genuine hit collaboration, lasting over 15 years, two albums, and even a Hollywood movie (How High) and a TV sitcom (Method & Red). Def Jam paired the two emcees in 1994 as a "Month of the Man" promotion for their solo albums, Meth's Tical and Redman's Dare Iz a Dark Side. The duo seemed like a perfect match: Meth as the surly straight man and Red as the boisterous (yet always lovable) cutup. The next year, they certified their partnership with a hit single, "How High." In 1999, Meth and Red released Blackout! and the classic club jam "Da Rockwilder." Method Man's main gig is as punch-line artist for the mighty Wu-Tang Clan, and Redman has held down Hit Squad, the superstar crew helmed by EPMD's Erick Sermon. But Meth and Red generate a special kind of magic. Their frequent tours and live performances are among the best hip-hop has to offer. In 2009, they issued a long-delayed sequel, Blackout! 2.
