Perhaps this doesn't contain enough ninja mythology for the average Wu-head, but Method Man is miles better on Blackout than he is on Tical. It's the production that makes it really. I dig RZA's dusty, lo-fi beats, and this works great for the likes of Inspectah Deck and GZA, but Method Man has always been, at heart, a party rapper. My only experience of Redman is through Whut? Thee Album but I'd say the same for him as well. Have these two honestly ever done anything better than the renegade genius of 'Da Rockwilder'? There are only a handful of rap duos that match the charisma and fun that these two demonstrate when their lyrics play off each other. Sure, it's hard to make an entire album out of weed references, but very few projects have come together quite as well as this one. Fire Ina Hole!
