Method Man and Redman, arguably one of the best duos in rap music history, are set to “celebrate” each other on Tuesday, April 20th in a Verzuz competition.
Appropriately dropping on 4/20, the day internationally recognized as Weed Day, this legacy act is known for getting baked and is probably the best match to curate.
Both Red (Reggie Noble) and Meth (Clifford Smith) have been partners in crime on songs, in life, and on film — and in all of those mediums themes about their love for cannabis are prominent.
In the 2001 film, “How High,” the two play college students going to college, but instead of trying to ace their classes, they smoked themselves silly.
It will be interesting to see how they are sized up in this competition.
Redman has eight studio albums and three collaborative albums. He also can pull stuff from his five mixtapes and numerous features on top-name rappers like Tupac Shakur, LL Cool J, De La Soul, Obie Trice, and the Wu-Tang Clan. The Jersey native can also tap into that EPMD and Hit Squad bag too.
Now Meth’s numbers can’t be sneezed at either. He has six studio albums, four collaborative albums and has appeared on a whopping 116 features. While most of those features probably are Killer Bees on the swarm … he can boast heavy names like DMX, Ashanti, Teyana Taylor,
ASAP Mobb, Limp Bizkit, D’Angelo, Ill Will, Cortez, Math Hoffa and more. He has the ill GRAMMY award for “I’ll Be There for You/ You’re All I Need” with Mary J. Blige (real stunt hardware).
The promotional video is hilarious. It shows them working out in a gym getting ready … Method is showcasing his muscles and Red is clearly not as athletic as his boy. Fans may giggle as they hear them yell, “VERZUZZZZZ!”
No worries … we yelling too!
You can check it out on Instagram and Triller at 8 pm EST on How High Day. Get your tray ready.
