Method Man Drops One Of His Few Verses Of 2016 & It’s Straight Gutter (Audio)
2016 has been relatively quiet for Method Man, but his involvement with the soundtrack of Netflix’s Luke Cage has tied him to one of the most successful television shows of the year, a reminder that with a pedigree like his, no time away from the game is enough to erase his relevance. He’s also one of the few veteran MCs who is happy to share his talents with young MCs, much like he did with A$AP Mob on 2013’s “Trillmatic.” Meth also used the opportunity presented by his 2015 solo LP The Meth Lab to work with Cory Gunz and Mack Wilds, who infused the album with some younger perspective on “50 Shots.”
Today (November 4), Meth emerges on “Crack Babies,” the latest single from German rapper Joe Young. As the Brand Ambassador for Wu-Tang Clan’s Wu Wear European clothing line, the Brand Ambassador for Wu-Tang Clan’s Wu Wear European Clothing Line, Young has been building relationships with the Wu-Tang Clan overseas, his collab with Method Man proof of what seems to be a flourishing partnership. Produced by Dame Grease (with whose name Heads might be familiar through his work with the Lox, DMX, and Nas), “Crack Babies” is a political record through and through, including a Donald Trump diss and commentary on contemporary politics. But it’s also a classic serving of raw and uncut rhymes about street life and wack MCs. The song appears on Young’s forthcoming LP Invincible Armour, which arrives on November 24.
“Crack Babies” is clearly inspired by the old-school flavor of Wu-Tang, so it isn’t surprising that Joe Young’s new album features Raekwon, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, and Inspectah Deck, among others. Invincible Amour is now available for pre-order.
