Blackout! [Explicit Lyrics]

( 7 )

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Since debuting their hysterically funny doobie brethren exploits back in '95 on "How High," Method Man and Redman just might be the finest NYC superstar pairing since Clyde Frazier and Earl the Pearl ran the Knickerbocker backcourt. As expected, BLACKOUT!, Meth and Red's likable weed-worshipping first full-length effort, is generally effortless in its displays of profanity-laced charisma, vocal chemistry, and vintage resuscitated old school hooks. Tunes like the bounce-ready "Da Rockwilder," "Run 4 Cover" featuring Wu-Tangers Street and Ghostface Killah, and the driving title track are welcome additions to our heros' catalog of smile-cracking collaborations, and provide ample compensation for the occasional ...

Simply check out Meth's couplet from "4 Seasons" also featuring LL Cool J and Ja Rule for a concise summary of this zooted pair's out-to-lunch aesthetic: "My whole motto is fuck it/Hit the smoke shop and blow my whole budget." Cheech & Chong never sounded this fonkay. Chairman Mao
All Music Guide - John Bush
Hip-hop fans have known for years that Method Man and Redman are two of the top MCs in the field, and their tour together not only proved the fact, but also showed they rap incredibly well together. Their deliveries are similar and the flow never falters, but the hint of gravel in Meth's voice makes them easily distinguishable. Now, with Blackout!, the duo's first album together though both guested on each other's 1998 LPs, listeners have the proof on wax. Skating on top of spare, hard-hitting productions by Erick Sermon, Wu-Tang's RZA, Mathematics, and Redman himself -- under his Reggie Noble alias -- Meth and Redman trade off on hardcore rhymes and freestyle over each other. There's barely room for breath, but the rhymes are tight and inventive throughout. There are only two guest appearances for Ja Rule & LL Cool J on "4 Seasons" and Ghostface and Street on the hilarious Blair Witch Project send-off "Run 4 Cover", and the focus on just Meth and Redman makes for an even tighter, more combustible LP. Even with the high expectations that come along with a project of this magnitude, Blackout! rarely disappoints.

    Should have bought it in 1999!

    Just as good that I got it now. It is a classic. Still relevant. Great, fierce mic fiends who rip verses with tongue swords and buck shots with their 12-gauge voices!

    NO DOUBT ITS THE HOTTEST

    Everyone screams of a another jay z and biggie smalls calabo but the best ever duo is of course red and meth. this album is absolute smoothness without any competition. the guy who said they didnt meet theyre expectations doesnt listen to them right. this is no doubt the best cd i own. full of unbeatable beats, mind blowing lyrics and hilarious skits. A MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE INTO HIP HOP. i dont have enough space to type all i can say about this album so in short if u dont have it GET IT!! im ghost. One. MACK Montana

    Nice Release From Tical and Funk Doctor Spock

    You would expect a collaboration album starring Redman and Method Man to be totally off the hook. Well...they didnt meet expectations. There are some dope tracks on this LP including head-nodding tunes
