Method Man and Redman, who made a surprise appearance with Wu-Tang Clan and Nas on the “NY State Of Mind” tour.
Fans were taken aback when they saw Method Man and Redman perform live on stage at New Jersey’s Prudential Center on Tuesday night (Sept. 13).
Meth performed renditions of “M.E.T.H.O.D Man” and “Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing ta F**k Wit” with his Wu-Tang family. Additionally, Redman was summoned to the stage by the MC-turned-actor as the pair performed “Da Rockwilder” from the timeless album Blackout from 1999!
Method Man’s surprising performance comes in reaction to audience members who complained that his absence was harming their show experience. On Instagram Live, the Tical rapper corrected the confusion.
“I’m gonna clear this sh*t up once and for all. I’m gonna say this one last time,” he began. “I’m one of the nicest motherfu**ers in the world, but I am not a pushover. I have sacrificed so much over the years to satisfy the fans, and I’m pretty sure that’s vice versa, and that’s why I love y’all, that’s why I don’t hesitate to go all out for y’all.
“But to be dissatisfied or to even blame me for your experience is unfair. Very f**king unfair,” he continued. “My brothers are super-duper talented, with or without me. And I know a lot of people, or a few people, have paid their money to see me perform, but that bill said Wu-Tang Clan.”
The “NY State of Mind” tour is co-headlined by Nas and Wu-Tang Clan members RZA, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, GZA, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa, and Cappadonna. “NY State of Mind” tour also features Busta Rhymes as a special guest.
