The Wu-Tang Clan’s 20-year existence is staggering. Even today, the multifaceted crew commands the attention of Hip-Hop fans the world over. Method Man, the first breakout star from the Staten Island and Brooklyn- based unit, still has one of the most potent flows on the planet and promises he’ll keep delivering quality music, if the people want it.
Mr. Meth sat down with AllHipHop to talk about his upcoming fifth solo record Crystal Meth alongside The RZA, his work with Redman with the well-received Blackout series and showing a little edge towards rap critics who slept on his skills.
“Me and RZA are gonna work together on my next LP Crystal Meth,” said Method Man. “I’m looking forward to getting back in the studio with the kid. We just came off a Wu tour and the camaraderie was still there so I know the chemistry is gonna be there when we go in the studio.” Method wasn’t firm on a timeline for release but did say he’s working hard on recording.
Method Man isn’t chasing fame at this stage of his career, already proving he can make hits and rock stages. “As far as mainstream goes, I’m not concerned too tough with that. I’ve been there, done that,” said Meth. “If it’s still fans out there listening, I’m definitely coming with some sh-t for you.”
Along with Crystal Meth, the Shaolin swordsman is linking back up with Redman for a third Blackout album and got a bit testy at the lack of support the record got from his fellow rap luminaries. “A lot of people slept on Blackout 2. Blackout 2 was dope,” Meth stated plainly. “I did my thing on that album.”
Check out the rest of the interview where Meth talks about a possible Wu-Tang biopic, his own acting career and whether he and Reggie Noble will tackle another How High movie.
