VERZUZ: Method Man vs Redman

blame it on Meka April 21, 2021


Following the grown folks business that was The Isley Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire, VERZUZ celebrated 4/20 with a special edition starring rap’s OG Cheech & Chong, Method Man and Redman.

Taking cues from both D’Angelo’s and Ghostface Killah and Raekwon’s sessions, Meth and Red threw a star-studded production that was essentially a concert that many of us got to view from the comforts of our couches. Having been lifelong friends and collaborators, the two traded songs, quips, and energy effortlessly throughout their entire session.

The pair even allowed their guests to shine as well, as fans were treated to appearances and performances from DJ Kool, EPMD, RZA, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna, and Keith Murray among others (a random highlight? Lords Of The Underground member Doitall announcing that he is running for office in Newark, NJ). Method Man and Redman would also announce that a third installment of their Blackout! series is on the way as well.
