“Da Rockwilder” is the second single taken from Blackout!, the debut studio album by Method Man & Redman.
Blackout! is the first full-length release by Method Man and Redman after many collaborations. The album continued a string of highly successful Def Jam releases in the late 1990s. The album debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 with first week sales of 254,000 copies and served as a bit of a precursor to the 2001 major studio film How High. Both rappers enjoyed perhaps the height of their popularity as a tandem after the success of the album and its three charted singles. The singles were also popular videos which were mainstays on MTV and BET. The sequel to the album, Blackout! 2, was released on May 19, 2009.
Originally the name of the album was to be Amerikaz Most Blunted and was advertised as that for months before the release, but they changed it to the more commercially acceptable Blackout!. The CD version of the album features three previously released bonus tracks; “Well All Rite Cha” also appeared on Redman’s solo album, Doc’s Da Name 2000, “Big Dogz” from Method Man’s Tical 2000: Judgement Day and 1995’s critically acclaimed single “How High”.
The most popular of these previous collaborations was on the song “How High” from the soundtrack to The Show. The album’s three singles, “Y.O.U.”, “Da Rockwilder” and “Tear It Off”, spearheaded the highly hyped release to go platinum on January 6, 2000, more than three months after the album’s release.
