Method Man & Redman w/8Ball & MJG @ Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom - 4/20/14 - (Review)

Review By: Kenny Emmer
It was a big weekend for Denver and the rest of CO, as hordes of tourists and artists alike flocked to the colorful state to partake in the now legal marijuana festivities. Countless shows took place all across the state in celebration including 2 performances by Wu Tang Clan's own Method Man joined by Def Jam alumni and musical partner in crime Redman. With local rap artist LilyFangz and 90s rap duo 8 Ball & MJG opening up the afternoon with throwback beats and clever lyricism. It sure felt like an old school underground hip-hop show, and there's no better venue to perpetuate this vibe than Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom. As expected, the ballroom was filled with haze as people lit up in celebration of the holidaze. The sold out show was packed full of good vibes and good music. Method Man & Redman were ready in full force to put on both a terrific performance and a party for the attendees. Meth & Red performed classics such as "How High" "Da Rockwilder" and "Y.O.U" as well as many others. In addition Method made sure to drop certain Wu Tang classics from Raekwon's "Ice Cream" to "Method Man" and the late ODB's "Shimmy Shimmy Ya". The duo were supported by 2 unbelievably talented DJ's, who put on their own spin-off which had the crowd on their toes. It was an awesome experience to witness such an awesome show on such a memorable day.  Colorado was definitely the place to be for 4/20. And it was one I won't forget.
