Method Man Reminds That He Does Not Lose, In His New Video
Method Man is gearing up for his next project release Meth Lab II: The Lithium. He previously dropped the audio version of “Grand Prix” and now the visual form is available.
In the Last American B-Boy-directed video, Meth blazes a few among his Meth Lab crew. He also dons a Wu mask and a couple of satirical T-shirts. It also takes on a dark comic book-inspired feel as numerous graphics play out through shot transitions – almost in a “Triumph”-like manner.
The Wu-Tang Clan MC recently spoke about his forthcoming album during an interview with Billboard‘s Kathy Iandoli. He recalled some of the backlash he received on the first edition of the release series, which mostly stemmed from the fact that he wasn’t present on many of the songs.
“People were upset,” Meth’ tells Billboard of the 2015 LP featuring Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, Mack Wilds, and Streetlife. “Every song on there had somebody else on it with the exception of one song that I did by myself.” That song was called “2 Minutes of Your Time,” but apparently the second edition of Meth Lab will have him a lot more present.
Instrumental wise, “Grand Prix” gives Meth the space to open up and breathe. “I can rhyme my ass off, that ain’t nothin’ new,” he told the magazine. He also spoke about how his new project is helping up-and-coming rappers from his home borough get experience in the spotlight. That full interview is available here.
“Grand Prix” is produced by Dame Grease (DMX, Max B, JAY-Z).
