This jam got me through many long nights in college when we would take breaks to watch throw back videos. Check out the video in the track listing below, it’s such a classic! The intro is my favorite part and I used to make my friends rewind a thousand times.
We’re lucky this 12″ single has another favorite on the back, that seems to rarely happen with 12″ discs!
Method Man & Redman are an American hip hop duo signed to Def Jam Recordings as both solo artists and as a collective. While they had been collaborating since 1994, it was not until 1999 that they released a full-length collaborative effort, Blackout!. The follow-up album, Blackout! 2, was released in 2009.
Method Man often gives a shout out to Redman on tracks that do not feature Redman; this usually comes in the form of “What up, Doc!” referring to Redman’s alias “Funk Doctor Spock”. In 2001, they starred alongside each other in the cult classic stoner film How High. In 2004, the duo also starred in a short-lived Fox sitcom, titled Method & Red, however they later disowned the series due to lack of creative control.
