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.
The Best Duo of All-Time!
that's not taking away anything from Eric B. and Rakim, EPMD, or Run DMC (minus JMJ), but Mef and Red are like Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp in the mid-90's: unstoppable. this album is real hip-hop, every track is a banger. it should be considered a classic, but not a monument. real hip-hop heads should get this album
This is one of my top ten favorite albums of all time. HIGH-LY recommended. wink wink.
This album is like Burt and Ernie…freaking genius!!!
