A “How High 4/20” Verzuz fight between Method Man and Redman — long-lasting companions, colleagues and notable cannabis advocates — is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday by means of Instagram and the Triller application.
Outside of standout tracks and past joint efforts from the pair throughout the long term, anticipate that some sort of tribute should their previous Def Jam Recordings labelmate and infrequent teammate, DMX, who passed on recently. The threesome rhymed on the hit 1997 track “4, 3, 2,1” with LL Cool J and the as of late perished rapper known for his coarse verses.
Method Man, the only rapper to show up on Notorious B.I.G. and 2 Pac collections while the two specialists were alive, is essentially referred to for his music as an individual from the Wu-Tang Clan (“Method Man”). In 1994, Method Man delivered the first of his six independent collections including “Tical,” a RIAA-affirmed platinum collection, and “Tical 2000: Judgment Day.”
Standout tracks from those collections incorporate “Bring the Pain,” “Day of atonement,” and “Separations 2 Make Ups,” highlighting past Verzuz visitor D’Angelo, and “I’ll Be There for You/You’re All I Need to Get By,” Method Man’s two part harmony — an uncontrollably mainstream wedding melody — with incredible R&B artist Mary J. Blige.
The two united for “How High,” a track from the 1995 collection “The Show: The Soundtrack,” and later parlayed their fellowship — and charm — into a film, film soundtrack and TV arrangement by a similar name, alongside different collections including “Power outage!” and “Power outage! 2.”
Artist and creator Kevin Powell says the fellowship between Method Man and Redman is substantial verification of how two profoundly effective creatives can deliver immortal music while remaining nearby.
“Method Man and Redman are not just two of the best characters in hip-jump’s set of experiences, however their profound companionship has suffered across styles and times of culture like, say, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong in jazz, or Elton John and Billy Joel in popular music,” said Powell in an explanation to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Forthcoming Verzuz fights incorporate a May 8 Mother’s Day release with R&B bunches SWV and Xscape, and a “rematch” of past contenders planned for Memorial Day weekend.
