Method Man and Redman went hit after hit during the VERZUZ event “How High 4/20 Special” tonight. The “battle” was a carefree event in which the two employees and friends danced and joked with each other almost the whole time. In the end, they announced that they were working on blackout! 3.
RZA, Inspectah Deck and Cappadonna were guests, and RZA announced that a new album with DJ Screw is on the way. DJ Kool showed up and did “Let’s Get Dirty” and “Let Me Clear My Throat”. EPMD, Keith Murray and Lords of the Undergrounds Dupre “Doitall” Kelly performed. Kelly announced that he is running for office in Newark. Below is a playlist of songs from the night.
Method Man referred to the verdict passed by the jury today in the Derek Chauvin Trial. “Guilty in every way,” he said, later adding that if you put negative energy into the world, you “deserve every damned piece of it.” Method and Redman also paid tribute to the late Black Rob and DMX.
Last month, VERZUZ streamed a showdown between Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon and Ghostface Killah. In early April, Steve Harvey hosted a duel between soul legends The Isley Brothers and Earth, Wind & Fire. Last week Redman shared a new track called “80 Barz” that was released in association with RIV MUSIC. Check out the new video of this single below. He also announced that his next studio album, Muddy Waters 2, will be released this summer.
