Method Man & Redman Prep Comeback Disc, Provide Free Easter Haircuts

Method Man and Redman will be giving back to local Staten Island families next month by providing kids in the area with free haircuts.

On Saturday, April 11, one day before Easter Sunday, Shaolin’s Against Da’ Grain barbershop will offer free cuts to customers under the age of 12 from the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on a first come, first serve basis. In addition to sponsoring the event, Meth & Red will also be on hand to speak with the kids, along with other S.I. artists.

“We have wonderfully loyal customers and felt this was just another way of rewarding them during these unusually hard economic times,” Tariq, a barber at the shop said in a statement.  “A single mother of three boys spends a weekly average of $33.00 on their hair cuts making it difficult to keep her kids hair freshly trimmed. With Easter Sunday the following day, we felt it was the perfect time to team up with our celebrity friends and create a unique solution based on old traditional values while helping our community.”

For more information on the event please visit agdgsinyc.com or call 718.981.3597.

In related news a new track, “A Yo,” by Meth and Red recently leaked on the net. It is uncertain where the song will appear, but XXLMag.com has learned that the duo are currently working on a new disc. The album – which follows up the 1999′s Blackout! - is set for release on April 28th on Def Jam Recordings. – Devin Chanda

        I feel ya, we in a recession. But I guess its better than giving away free copies of “4:21 The Day After”.

  • DV8

    oh thats cool…good things they hired barbers. I thought they was actually about to be giving kids bowl cuts and all types of fucked up fades. I’d be damn if some high ass nigga cut my hair.

  • mo

  • Dal

  • fireforreal

    We need more of this in the hip hop community. Think how much most rappers spend a month on weed and drink. They can afford to help out more kids with free cuts.

  • Hip Hop since 77

    That’s cool and all but fuck that we need more info on this new album. No question it will be the first CD I actually buy this year. Mef and Red don’t let them push this shit back cause we need this album!
