VERZUZ continues to do damage on the live stream circuit as they hosted a special How High 4/20 Special event tonight (April 20) between Method Man and Redman.
Ex-police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty of all the three charges for the murder of George Floyd earlier today which led to a even bigger celebration for the community. The Method Man vs. Redman showdown ended up being more of a celebration of their discographies rather than a traditional “battle” and fans certainly did not mind it.
The Wu-Tang Clan family members performed their classics such as ‘How to Roll a Blunt, ‘What the Bloodclot’, ‘Let’s Get Dirty’, L’et Me Clear My Throat’ (with DJ Kool cameo), ‘Diz Is For My Smokers’, ‘Y.O.U’, ‘The What’ (feat. Biggie), ‘Nutshell Pt 2’, ‘Soopaman Loova 3’ (Redman put on a cape), ‘Round and Round (Remix)’ (feat. Jonell), ‘I’ll Be There For You/You’re All I Need to Get By’ (feat. Mary J. Blige), ‘Let Me Clear My Throat’, ‘Let’s Get Dirty’ and many more.

Keith Murray, RZA, EPMD and DJ Kool made special cameos during the event and at the very end, Redman and Method Man also announced that they are working on Blackout! 3 while Redman talked about his upcoming & long awaited LP, Muddy Waters 2. On Monday, he dropped a new song off called it ‘80 Barz‘ following it up with the music video tonight (Watch here).
