Method Man Plans To Get In The Pit At Family Values

Method Man and Redman are enjoying the huge first week sales of their joint album, "Blackout," which sold over a quarter million copies to land at number three on the new "Billboard" album chart.

Now the rapping duo is getting ready for its stint on the Family Values tour, as Method Man and Redman are slated to hop on board the metal (and hip-hop) music fest on October 19 in San Francisco.

The two will ride out the last two weeks of the tour, which concludes on October 31 in Biloxi, and as Method Man told MTV News backstage at last month's Video Music Awards, he's looking forward to getting up close and personal with the raucous Family Values fans.

"We just know the crowd is gonna

be rowdier,

that's all," he explained. "The crowd is gonna be way more rowdier, and that's how we like it. Honestly, I wish the concerts we did with our people was that rowdy in those type of arenas. Because if you get a bunch of us in an arena, everybody's [looking around], they've got new stuff on, they don't wanna get dirty." [RealVideo]

Method Man will get his chance to enjoy more arena-sized rock shows when he and Redman head out with Limp Bizkit for a post Family Values outing, beginning on November 4 in Tampa, Florida.
