Method Man and longtime Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Streetlife joined forces last November for the official New York Yankees team anthem titled “Squad Up,” which also features Mobb Deep’s Havoc.

The video for the track, which appears on Meth and Street Life’s forthcoming collaborative album, has already amassed over two million YouTube views and the song itself has clocked over two million Spotify streams.

But before that drops, a whole apparel line based on the “Squad Up” single has arrived, which boasts jerseys, hats, hoodies, t-shirts and masks. The products are available via the StreetLifeWu and Distrolord websites.

Streetlife’s working relationship with Method Man kicked off in 1994 when he appeared on the Wu legend’s solo debut Tical. He was then featured on the song “Mr. Sandman” along with RZA, Inspectah Deck, Carlton Fisk and Blue Raspberry.

Over the years, Streetlife has appeared on all of Meth’s projects, including 2019’s Meth Lab 2: The Lithium. He’s also spit at least one verse on every Wu-Tang album since 1997’s Wu-Tang Forever.
