The rapper explained, referring to his role in ‘Power Book II: Ghost.’

Previously, Method Man shared his excitement about working alongside Redman during a March 2023 interview with VIBE. The 52-year-old referred to production’s decision to bring Redman onboard as “dope.”

Additionally, he shared that “it’s always dope to work with… someone that your trust.” Even adding that the pair’s on-screen “chemistry” and “synergy” would shine through, in combination with their “professionalism.”

“It’s always dope to work with somebody you’ve worked with over the years, but just not somebody that you’ve always worked with, but someone that you trust… So anytime you put Redman and Method Man on-screen together, not only are you going to get chemistry, you going to get synergy, as well as professionalism.”

Additionally, UPROXX reports that Method Man and Redman have been longtime friends and even teamed up to form the collective Method Man & Redman in 1994. The pair later went on to earn an RIAA: Gold certification for their 1995 single, “How High.”
