Blackout (Album Version (Explicit))
Label: Def Jam Recordings
Method Man & Redman's first hit album together packs an hour's worth of burners, including "Cereal Killer," "Tear It Off" and, of course, "Da Rockwilder." That latter jam proved a monster club hit upon its 1999 release, confirming Blackout! as perhaps the breeziest of Wu-Tang-related bangers. There's not much philosophizing, and Redman and Method Man keep it simple, spitting one hot bar after another. Luckily, they're two of the best ever when it comes to straight emcee'ing, and production from Erick Sermon, the RZA and Rockwilder keeps your head nodding as the funk flows.
