Method Man & Redman return after almost 10 years since their last collabo album and 7 ˝ years since their "How High Soundtrack" with a very solid 4 star album. After being in the rap game for 16+ years most know what to expect when these 2 get on the mic and when they collaborate on songs. I think this album is a notch aboue the first "Blackout!" album (which I'd also give 4 stars). I do like their solo works better than their collaboration albums, most of their solo's I'd give 4.5 stars. This one has some funnier tracks and some smoking tracks as well as some nice lyrical ones too. Of the 15 songs, 2 are ok and the other 13 are good or real good songs but there is no classics on here. Guests are on 4 songs rapping and doing the chorus on 4 others. Production is solid as well. Rockwilder & Erick Sermon each do 2 songs, Bink One!, King David, Havoc, Pete Rock, Swiff D, Nasty Kutt, Ty Fyffe, and Buckwild all do 1 song. A nice album to have from 2 hip-hop veterans.

I absolutely positively loved it. Its the second BO2 that I purchased because the cd was so tight that I let somebody borrowed it, and never got it back. But I couldnt have Blackout without having Blackout 2. BO2 has the same dank chamber music sound as it predecesor, it's just an extention. Their is no new flavor that anybody adds to the mix. But if you are already a Mef&Red fan, this is perfect for you because you get exactly what you expected. Both of their wordplay is quick-witted,clever, sharp as the WUTANG sword! Fellow Clansmen Ghostface Killah, and Streetlife returns for the sequel. Raekwon the Chefis also featured.Eric Sermon,and Keith Murray from the Def Squad also make guest appearances. Also Bun B from UGK appeares on "City lights" an ode to the late great Pimp C.GillaHouse emcee Ready Roc is also featured on the album.If you loved Blackout Then I highly recommend Blackout 2. Wutang fans will love this cd trust and believe it's one of my favorite Mef cds.

When Method Man and Redman first collaborated on the classic weed anthem "How High" in 1995, there was an unmistakable chemistry between the two. After a couple of appearances on each other's albums in the late 90's, people were demanding a full record from them. The end result was their debut album as a duo- 1999's "Blackout!". The album was rather successful and cemented them as the heir apparent to another marijuana centered duo Cheech & Chong. Two years later, they filmed the stoner comedy "How High", which was directed by Bob Dylan's son Jesse Dylan ("American Wedding", "Kicking And Screaming"). After that film, they returned to their day jobs as both solo artists as well as members of groups- Method Man from Wu-Tang Clan and Redman from Def Squad. A decade would pass before anyone heard anything from the duo until 2009, when Method Man and Redman would release the long awaited follow up sophomore album "Blackout! 2".

On this new album, there are the returns of producers from the first album. Erick Sermon produces the songs "Dangerus MCees" and "Neva Herd Dis B4", while Rockwilder handles "Hey Zulu" and "A Lil' Bit". Pete Rock produces the first single "A Yo", while Havoc of the group Mobb Deep gets behind the boards on "I'm Dope"- a track in which the duo compares their music to a drug addiction. They duet with Raekwon and Ghostface Killah on "Four Minutes To Lock Down", Keith Murray on "Errbody Scream" and Bun B on "City Lights". They get surprisingly romantic on the melodic "Mrs. International", in which they seduce a non-American woman. Lastly, a Method Man and Redman album wouldn't be complete without a weed anthem, and in this case it's the track "Dis Iz 4 All My Smokers".

Redman & Method Man have both been in the hip hop game for many years. Method Man, with The Wu Tang Clan and his so so solo albums, other than "Tical" and Redman with his association with EPMD & Def Squad and with his solo albums as well. Together, when they created "How High" on The Show soundtrack and their first collaboration CD, Blackout!, they definitely had a formula going. My favorite tracks from the CD included the title track, "Y.O.U", "Da Rockwilder", "Cereal Killer", "Run 4 Cover" w/Ghostface & Streetlife and "4 Seasons" w/LL Cool J & Ja Rule. They even managed to create a movie and a short lived TV show based on "How High". They also have been featured on alot of collaborations that I have enjoyed such as LL Cool J's "4,3,2,1", Styles P's "Good Times" (Remix), Pharoahe Monch's "Simon Says" (Remix) and Ghostface's "Buck 50" from "Supreme Clientele". You would have thought that it wouldn't have taken 10 years for them to release a sequel. However, in 2009 we have finally been blessed with "Blackout 2". If you still think that these 2 MCs don't have it as a group, the "BO2 Intro" will quickly silence any nay sayers. Havoc of Mobb Deep shows up to produce "I'm A Dope N_____" as he provides a nice beat for the first full length song on the album. Pete Rock produces the 1st single "A-Yo", which features Saukrates on the hook. They show that they can still make something for the radio that is worth listening to. You just won't hear anything like that on the radio stations here in the DMV, (DC, Maryland & Virginia) eventhough they are showing their 2nd single and one of my favorite tracks on this CD, "Ms. International" some love.Read more ›
