With opening day for the Yankees just a few days away, it is with much excitement and honor to announce that Street and Method Man will be performing “Squad Up” on April 1st at Yankees Stadium. The song which is produced by, and also features, Havoc from Mobb Deep has been chosen as the official Yankees team song for 2021.
The record has received an outpour of support and currently hails over 3 million streams on Spotify, 3 million streams on Apple Music, and 3.3 million views on YouTube. With a classic and flawless hip hop beat by Havoc, the three heavy hitters pay homage to Mobb Deep’s Prodigy within their verses. There is a long history between between Method Man and Mobb Deep, stretching back to 1995. From Method Man’s appearance on “Exortion” from Mobb Deep’s “Hell On Earth” to Mobb Deep featuring on “Play 4 Keeps” on Meth’s “Tical 2000”, which also features Street Life, it is clear that these legends have a music chemistry unlike many others. “I be the first to tell these rappers get ya bars up. Shout to P, you know it’s Havoc when we Mobb up!” The official Yankees Opening Day Video drops on March 31st, 2021 which will be narrated by Street life! Be sure to stay tuned for the video!
