iLive in association with Pedestrian and FasterLouder Present: Method Man & Redman The Blackout! Tour
iLive are excited to announce the long-awaited return of legendary hip-hop duoMethod Man & Redman on their Blackout Australian Tour. The two prolific rappers, who have also carved out massively successful solo careers, released their first collaborative album Blackout! in 1999 which earned the duo a cult following, and ten years later, followed up with Blackout! 2.
Both albums have become legendary hip-hop classics. The duo, who are known for their hype shows, start their Australian Tour in Adelaide on the 8th September, and travel to Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. Method Man has been a hip-hop star since his eponymous cut from Enter the Wu-Tang first put Wu-Tang Clan on the map, and he solidified the position with some of the best of the solo work to come out of the group, including Tical, Tical 2000: Judgement Day, Tical 0: The Prequel, 4.21 The Day After and The Meth Lab. His reach has long extended beyond music, with a successful acting career that included prominent roles in The Wire, Oz and Belly. He also starred in the cult-classic comedy How High with Redman.
Redman’s seminal debut, Whut? Thee Album, hit stores in 1992, and it sounded like nothing hip-hop fans had ever heard before. The album’s sound was rooted in the funk of Redman’s fellow Def Squad member Erick Sermon’s production, butRedman’s brash energy, punchlines and persona were wholly original. In the nearly two decades since, Redman has evolved into a hip-hop institution.
He’s appeared on countless albums as a guest rapper, has released a further seven solo albums, a Def Squad collaborative album with Sermon and Keith Murray, and of course, released his albums with Method Man. Don’t miss Method Man and Redman performing tracks exclusively off Blackout! &Blackout! 2.
