Red & Meth Live in Detroit

Published

on

The Hip Hop gods blessed us when they put solo emcees Red Man and Method Man together. I truly feel that this duo is one of the most slept on in Hip Hop History. How fitting it was that on Michigan’s annual “HASH BASH” day that 2 of hip hops finest smokers hit town brought to you by the HOUSE OF DANK.

Much to our surprised the first act to hit the stage was one of our favorites OBA ROWLAND! Always a beast on the Mic Oba brings the same fun energy you hear on his recordings. Big shout out to his DJ LIMELIGHTZ! Even tho OBA opened the show his dj demanded the same respect as the headliners on that stage. He must have brought the record back 8 times waiting on the light tech to turn the lights down on stage! Thats how you stick together!!! I didnt get to hear “DREAMS” but his set slapped!

Just as much as we wanted to see Red & Meth this show was a MUST attend after seeing Royce Da 5’9 was on the bill!  We dont get to shows to early but with Royce on the stage we didnt want to miss a thing. Ripping thru his set with brother Kid Vishiss, Royce gave the home town a little bit of everything running of several of his classic joints. Talked to alot of people walking up to the venue and when i mentioned that Royce was on the show attendees got even more excited. Great to see the Nickle Nine getting the respect he deserves.

By the time you get to your late 40’s i dont see to many people smiling about doing anything. Let alone WORK! For me thats what made this show even more entertaining. I witnessed two what many in hip hop standards would consider “OLD MEN” run circles around what a majority of these artist are doing in hip hop today. No rapping over they lyrics and you could hear EVERY word just like the records, even some light choreography “NO NOT THE NEW EDITION TYPE”. As animated as ever they made sure the crowd knew that the energy we gave them is what we would get in return. After playing for a good hour running the classics they have together, by themselves and even some guest appearances from members of the WU the night was one of a kind. We would like to thank PHRESHPICS84 for sharing her photography!
