Album Review

Hip-hop fans have known for years that Method Man and Redman are two of the top MCs in the field, and their tour together not only proved the fact, but also showed they rap incredibly well together. Their deliveries are similar and the flow never falters, but the hint of gravel in Meth's voice makes them easily distinguishable. Now, with Blackout!, the duo's first album together (though both guested on each other's 1998 LPs), listeners have the proof on wax. Skating on top of spare, hard-hitting productions by Erick Sermon, Wu-Tang's RZA, Mathematics, and Redman himself — under his Reggie Noble alias — Meth and Redman trade off on hardcore rhymes and freestyle over each other. There's barely room for breath, but the rhymes are tight and inventive throughout. There are only two guest appearances (for Ja Rule & LL Cool J on "4 Seasons" and Ghostface and Street on the hilarious Blair Witch Project send-off "Run 4 Cover"), and the focus on just Meth and Redman makes for an even tighter, more combustible LP. Even with the high expectations that come along with a project of this magnitude, Blackout! rarely disappoints. [Blackout! was also released in a "clean" edition, containing no profanities or vulgarities.]

The Return

This is what Hip Hop is meant to sound like. This album is raw, unabridged and pushes what are perceived as the limits of the genre. From the rougher, more street ready ensembles of I'm Dope Ni**a, How Bout Dat, Four Minutes to Lock Down and Dangerus MCees, to the mix of East Coast and Dirty South in City Lights (Bun B having another nearly flawless appearance), to the back to basics style of Hey Zulu and Father's Day and the more mellow and understated approach seen in Mrs. International and Dis IZ 4 All My Smokers, this album compliments its' predecessor and stands on it's own at the same time. As a gem VVS1 in clarity, F in color; nearly perfect.


Born: April 17, 1970 in Newark, NJ

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Never quite a superstar, Redman was nonetheless one of the most off-the-wall, beloved, and enduring rappers of the '90s and 2000s. Born Reginald Noble in Newark, NJ, he made his initial impact on EPMD's 1990 album Business as Usual and stepped out as a solo artist with 1992's Whut? Thee Album, one of the year's best debuts, rap or otherwise. He blended reggae and funk influences with topical commentary and displayed a terse though fluid vocal style that was sometimes satirical, sometimes silly, and...
