The album 'Muddy Waters' released in 1996 received high praise and featured two Billboard Hot 100 singles 'It's Like That (My Big Brother) and 'Whateva Man' featuring a collaboration with Method Man. As label mates on Def Jam both Redman and Method Man released their first joint album 'The Black Out' in 1999. They also starred in their own sitcom 'Method & Red' and later films ‘How High' and 'How High 2’.
