Unofficial Rap Duo Method Man and Redman steal show during their set on the 2008 Rock The Bells Rap Tour Stop at Jones Beach on Long Island
Unofficial Rap Duo Method Man and Redman steal show during their set on the Rock The Bells Tour Stop at Jones Beach on Long Island.
Rap concerts are notoriously dull, unprofessional, anti-climatic, and generally not worth
mentioning. You’d think that since most rappers can’t play musical instruments, they’d devote their energy to giving a hell of a show. Sadly, it usually isn’t the case. There are a few exceptions, though. Just read this description of Method Man’s and Redman’s antics during their set during the Rock The Bells Rap Tour Stop at Jones Beach earlier this summer (Rob Harvilla, “Down In Front” Village Voice, August 6-12, 2008).
“8:30pm Here’s where we tell we tell you that Method Man and Redman ran away with this thing. Shocking, we know. Out come the beach balls, off come Meth’s pants midway through the second song. They stalk the stage in tandem like a sniper team. They bring out (legendary rap group) EPMD. They threaten to make How High, Part Two. They climb the speaker cabinets. They bring out (legendary rapper) SLICK RICK for a 10-second cameo — it seriously would’ve been longer if he’d walked leisurely from one end of the stage to the other. And during (the song) “Method Man,” Meth climbs into the crowd, balances on the tops of the seats, and triumphantly smokes a joint offered by the guy standing next to me. This is without question the greatest moment of that guy’s life.”
