Method Man & N.O.R.E. Knock Out Bars Like Drink Champs In Their New Video
Method Man continues to go all in for his 2018 Meth Lab 2: The Lithium compilation campaign. The same week that Wu-Tang Clan gears up for its Of Mics & Men documentary to air on Showtime, Mr. Mef’ (who co-produced the Sacha Jenkins-directed work) twists the cap off of his “Drunk Tunes” music video, a boozy collaboration with N.O.R.E.
Playing on Noreaga’s Drink Champs show with partner, DJ EFN, the thematic visual finds the two Rap stars pouring up in front of a crowded studio audience (which includes Termanology and others). The mics are on the table paying tribute to the popular Hip-Hop interview show. Meanwhile, the two New Yorkers spit accounts of the side effects from one (or several) too many.
N.O.’s verse deals with sloppy Instagram flicks with fans after a night out, and upsetting his wife by always running late. M-E-T-H follows with a verse about posting up at the bar and drink “one too many kamikazes.” Iron Lung admits that often, after getting tipsy, he realizes that he should have spent his time in the studio instead, or simply elevated his mind. Like Noreaga, Method Man upset his spouse by staying out ’til last call.
This Dame Grease-produced song also features Wu affiliate Joe Young, in addition to Mall G, Jessica Lee Lamberti, and Deanna Hunt. Other guests on Meth Lab 2 include Redman, Raekwon, and Snoop Dogg. Late last month, Meth’ dropped the video for one of the LP’s highlights, “2 More Mins,” a solo cut.
