Throwback Thursdays: Method Man & Redman - Da Rockwilder (1999)

This is a great record. It particularly stands out, because it's the only single that I can think of that is two minutes long and has no hook. The only other song I can think of is P.S.A., and that wasn't even really a single. They just played it on NY radio because everyone on Hot 97 is a Jay-Z stan.

Anyway, these two guys are just fun. I specifically remember this video because of the "choreographed dancing" that they were doing the whole time. They just seemed to be having so much fun with each other (nhjic). And honestly, that's exactly what this tandem is all about: having fun. They're a bunch of goofballs, and they're not scared to joke around with their music, which is something you rarely see in the hip-hop world.

These guys were on the famous Hard Knock Life Tour that I mentioned here, after which they dropped their only album together. The album featured the song shown above, which I believe was titled after the producer who made the record. They would then go on to star in a comedy together, which was then followed by an unsuccessful sitcom. They keep saying that they're going to do another album together, but they've been saying that for the past 10 years.

It would be nice to see something new from Doc & Meth. After all, the only clown we have left in hip-hop is this buffoon, and he barely qualifies as a rapper.

I rarely leave comments, but i did some searching and wound up here "Throwback Thursdays: Method Man & Redman - Da Rockwilder (1999)".
And I actually do have a few questions for you if you tend not to mind.
Could it be just me or does it look like some of these remarks come across like they are left by brain dead individuals?

:-P And, if you are writing at other sites, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to
post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your communal pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
