Method Man Reports on Life in the Hood on New Track. The Struggle Continues…(Audio)
With The Meth Lab slated for an August 21 release, excitement for Method Man’s return will be boiling all summer, thanks in part to three songs he’s already released; the title track, “88 Coupes,” and “Serious” are all heaters indicative of Meth’s consistent level of skill, both lyrically and when it comes to beat selection.
In keeping with the rapid succession of releases, the man is back at it, dropping “Reporting From the Slumz” earlier today. Featuring Yah-Sin and Spank, the track is an eye-witness detailing of the crime, poverty, and injustice far-too-prevalent in the slums of Shaolin and abroad. Assisted by R&B vocals, Meth stampedes into the track with all the force Heads expect, but with a socio-political undertone that marks his first such lyrics since the murder of Eric Garner at the hands of the NYPD in Staten Island last summer. While the song isn’t listed in the track listing for The Meth Lab, it’s an example of Meth’s adaptability and fearlessness in experimenting with unexpected collaborations. Check it out.
