Legendary hip-hop duo Method Man & Redman have just announced a one off show in New Zealand as part of their Blackout 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, ten years later, following it up with Blackout! 2.

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 in 1993, 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.

Redmanís seminal debut, Whut? Thee Album, hit stores in 1992, and it sounded like nothing hip-hop fans had ever heard before. The albumís sound was rooted in the funk of Redmanís fellow Def Squad member Erick Sermonís production, but Redmanís brash energy, punchlines and persona were wholly original. In the nearly two decades since, Redman has evolved into a hip-hop institution. Heís 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.

Donít miss Method Man and Redman performing tracks off Blackout! & Blackout! 2 live at Aucklandís TOWN HALL on September 6th.

Joining the line up is New Zealandís own DJ Sir-Vere & TEAM DYNAMITE.
