Muze PNote In the decade that separates the original BLACKOUT! and the follow-up, hip-hop as we know it went through a few mutations while Meth and Red have largely stuck to their guns. Longtime fans will be pleased by the same tag-team rhyme chemistry (built on wise-ass pop-culture references, aggressive verbal quips, and a thriving reefer obsession), strong guest spots (from Wu and Def Squad affiliates) and hard-knock East Coast production (thanks to returning producers Erick Sermon, Rockwilder, DJ Scratch, and Mathematics). Still the Blunt Bros aren't impervious to industry trends; Dirty South influences have crept in (see the H-Town flavored "City Lights" featuring Bun B), the vocoder talk-box is utilized on occasion, and both MCs are prone to over-pronouncing their R's in country-bumpkin fashion. One listen to the wicked weed anthem, "Diz iz 4 All My Smokers," should put any doubts as to Meth and Red's continued compatibility to rest. Overall, BLACKOUT! 2 is a potent blend of hardcore and commercial that, in many ways, outshines the original.

Professional Reviews

Spin (p.90)
- "The pair bring class-clown attitude and drop amusing references to Atari, Herbie Hancock, and the Funky Four Plus One....As a revival, it's a welcome blast."

Entertainment Weekly (p.57)
- "They trade pop culture jokes and sly bluster over sturdy boom-bap beats as if East Coast rap's late-'90s renaissance never ended." -- Grade: B

Billboard (p.29)
- "[T]his dynamic duo comes off as vital as it has in a decade on the highly anticipated sequel to the pair's1999 collaborative debut, BLACKOUT!"

XXL (Magazine)
- "The production is comfortably rugged throughout....All executed with the veterans' fluid pass-the-mic chemistry."
