Redman’s solo career continued throughout the remainder of the decade, with each of his albums selling at least half a millioncopies.

The long-awaited follow-up, Blackout! 2, apeared in 2009.

He has also collaborated extensively, both with hip-hop artists and with artists from other genres; the long list of artists andgroups he hasworked with includes Wyclef Jean, Snoop Dogg, Scarface, The Offspring, Christina Aguilera, Eminem, Gorillaz,D’Angelo, Me’ShellNdegeocello, 2Pac, Jodeci, Cypress Hill, De La Soul, KRS One and IAM.

In 2001 Redman co-starred with Method Man in the stoner comedy film How High, which featured the pair playing twomarijuana-addledstudents attempting to survive at Harvard.
