Method Man and Redman play Canes on Friday, August 14.
Jamar: I actually did security for Method Man last time he was at Canes. I walked him to the limo twice.... He’s one of the most talented lyricists to come out of Brick City [New Jersey]. I met him after the show, and he really interacted well with the fans. He took photos and was willing to hang out and talk with the fans that approached him.
Quartez: I’ve seen Method Man perform twice. Once at 4th&B and another time at Street Scene . Both were great shows. Method Man, in my opinion, is one of the best MCs out there. He’s a definite crowd-pleaser, has crowd control and great presence.... When he teamed up with Redman, who I thought was good, I didn’t think they would be able to share the stage. But they came together like booty cheeks.
If you happen to see them perform live, be prepared for their signature crowd-surfing move. It’s classic. It was obviously stolen from white people, as nobody black would want to look up and see another man’s sack. It is a staple if you see Method Man in concert. I was standing too close to him for all those antics and got a fresh cold beer spilled on me…which is not fresh, no matter how you look at it. Either way, it was worth it.
Also, he brings a lot of people with him. [They’re] onstage at all times, and their job is to open water bottles and pour them on the fans that weren’t entertained enough by the crowd-surfing.
DJ: Jamar & Quartez Show
SHIFT: 7:00–9:00 p.m., Thursday
