Method Man and Mary J. Blige will be reuniting for Starz’s Power spinoff Power Book II.

Back in 1996, the duo won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. Method Man will play Davis Maclean, an attorney who’s interested in NYC’s underworld led by Blige’s character, but he’s haunted by secrets from his past.

Power Book II is set to follow the final season of Courtney Kemp and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson’s Power which ends on February 9.

Clif “Method Man” Smith has several credits to his name including Oz and The Wire, co-hosting Drop the Mic, and he was recently in The Deuce with Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Franco and The Last O.G with Tiffany Haddish and Tracy Morgan. In addition, he co-starred in Method & Red and played himself in Luke Cage.
