As far as musical tastes are concerned, you could hardly ask for a more diverse bunch than DJBooth.net regulars—what’s one-star trash to one reviewer is another’s five-star treasure, and vice versa. With that said, the tremendous, nearly unanimously positive ratings garnered by Blackout 2 lead single A Yo! and leaked cut City Lights make one thing crystal clear: the Booth needs more Method Man & Redman, stat! In contrast to the joint-sparking, street-friendly vibe of both the aforementioned tracks, this latest cut oozes mellow, old-school flavor as the duo spit globetrotting game to a certain Mrs. International. Despite the change in tone, the time-tested lyrical skills Meth and Red once again bring to the table, as well as Buckwild‘s lushly-sampled instrumental, will likely add up to another Booth-charting hit. Blackout 2, the duo’s long-awaited sophomore album, is set to hit stores May 19th, and fans should watch out for the Mrs. International music video, filmed two weeks ago, to premiere in the near future.
