"Lumberjack man, lumberjack man, lumberjack, man! Come on Doc, I just need my belt," yells Method Man as he bangs on Redman's dressing room door before their appearance on The Carson Daly Show.
Meth is rocking a green flannel shirt ready to hit the stage, but he's missing that one crucial accessory. Redman pokes his head out, clad in a new Gucci vest, and hands Meth the belt.
"Look at the wardrobe difference, man. I ain't gonna say nothing—it's all gravy. I'm going into the other room with my cheap shit," exclaims Meth with a laugh. "I'm going to throw on my fuckin' Old Navy [Laughs]."
Regardless of personal fashion choices, Method Man and Redman's music never goes out of style. That's instantly apparent after one spin of Blackout! 2—their epic collaboration and hotly anticipated sequel to Blackout! In fact, the sequel follows the Hollywood formula successfully. It's bigger, better and more badass. These two legendary MC's are more on fire than ever, and each incendiary track proves it.
However, ARTISTdirect.com was curious about what Method Man was spinning, and he happily shared his playlist with us below.
Method Man's Playlist:
1. Tom Waits
I've got a lot of old shit on my playlist—a ton of Tom Waits.
2. Joe Cocker — "With a Little Help from My Friends"
I love this song. It was from The Wonder Years [Laughs].
3. Miss TK & The Revenge — "No Biterz"
This shit is rockin!
I like Beyonce's music. Her shit is rockin' too, bro [Laughs].
5. Allah Mathematics — Hip Hop Volume 1
I love this new Allah Math CD. It hasn't even dropped yet. The new joints on it are great. That's heavy in rotation right now. I love that.
6. Method Man & Redman — Blackout! 2
7. Michael Jackson — Thriller
I remember getting Michael Jackson's Thriller, and damn me if I didn't play that shit from beginning to end without skipping a damn word. You didn't have skip back then anyway, so you had to listen to it [Laughs]. It's about those vibes.
