Legendary hip-hop duo Method Man and Redman hosted and performed at LAX in the Luxor on Saturday night. The iconic rap stars arrived at the nightclub around 1 a.m. and made their entrance through the crowd.
Just before 2 a.m., the dynamic duo got on the mic and greeted fans from the main stage, inviting them to take it back to 1992. The former Wu-Tang Clan members started their performance by having the crowd chant “Wu-Tang, Wu-Tang, Wu-Tang” along with them. DJ Dice, the rappers’ personal MC, spun the duo’s classic hit “Intro” as the crowd recited the lyrics along with them.
The set continued after Method Man got on the mic to say “I’m happy to be here with my partner in crime, and we’re about to turn it up,” as the pair had the crowd cheering with their hit “Errbody Scream.” Method Man then led into his hits, including his signature song “M.E.T.H.O.D. Redman then took his turn on the mic with one of his hits, “Pick It Up.”
The duo had the crowd on their feet as Redman had one final last word before the two concluded their set. “Before we leave LAX, we just want to thank you for respecting our era and supporting our music throughout the years,” he said. “Let’s turn it up one last time,” as they ended on a high note with mega-hit “Da Rockwilder.”
The crowd raged with excitement while Method Man and Redman headed back to their VIP table to party with their group and posed for a photograph with rapper Rico “Tash” Smith from the 1990s hip-hop group The Alkaholiks there supporting his pals.
