Da Rockwilder

Da Rockwilder

Method Man & Redman

A classic single from Method Man and Red Man’s Blackout is two minutes of spitfire rapping.

Method Man talked to Complex about this song:

Red didn’t like the beat, that’s why the record’s so short. When I first heard it, I was like, ‘Fuck that!’ Wrote my verse right there and spit on it and I was like, ‘You know what? We gon’ call this shit ‘Rockwilder’ after you, my nigga.’ That’s how much I love this beat. For Rock, that’s what spring-boarded his shit into the ‘Bootylicious’ and ‘Do It Again’ with Jay-Z and all them niggas because everybody was coming for that beat.

In an interview with HipHopDX, Red Man was asked about the song’s length:

They don’t remember that we did two verses to “Da Rockwilder.” We did do two verses, but it didn’t sound right. So I said, “Let’s cut it short….it wouldn’t have been like it was if it wasn’t so short. Makes you wanna fiend for more.
