Method Man & Redman ft. UGK - City Lights

Posted 7 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Nasty Kut
Album:
Blackout 2

A Yo!, the lead single off Method Man & Redman‘s long-awaited sophomore album, saw the twosome enjoying some potent smokables as they rolled along their neighborhood streets. On this newly-released cut, we find Meth and Red doing, well, the exact same thing, except now they’re getting “toe up under City Lights,” and UGK are along are the ride!  A sample from the late Pimp C sets the mood for a late-night banger before segueing into Red’s squinty-eyed opening verse.  Both he and Meth’s laid-back rhymes feature a dash of Auto-Tune, but the effect’s use here is judicious and undoubtedly appropriate.  The arguable highlight of the cut, though, is Bun B‘s amped-up contribution on the back end, in the course of which he tells off the po-po, flaunts his tricked-out-ride, and, of course, makes clear that it is and always will be UGK for LifeNasty Kut’s synth-heavy instrumental gives City Lights a neon-tinted Southern feel, and the result is a cut that should get rotation in any region.  Watch out for Blackout 2 to drop this summer.
