Method Man
They’re Out to Get Me (Part II)

methTWO1.jpgAfter being signed to Def Jam for twelve years, Method Man is wondering if things have changed. He’s eager to make a big return to rap and prove the critics wrong with his new album, 421: The Day After, featuring production from RZA, Eric Sermon and Scott Storch. But he may not be the label’s top priority anymore. His first single, “Say,” has been getting mixed responses from radio, and Def Jam blames him for the confusion. According to Johnny Blaze, ain’t a damn thing changed, he’s just looking out for number one. If Def Jam ever stops questioning his sanity, Meth believes that the Kwame-produced club track “Fall Out” will be the single to get his album the push it deserves. When XXLMAG.COM caught up with Mr. Meth, he was heated and ready to speak his mind about his label and the politics of radio.

You’ve been on Def Jam your entire career. Things must have changed a lot since you first signed.
I been on Def Jam a long ass fuckin’ time. Right now, I’m not feeling the album’s push. A lot of [Def Jam’s staff] came up when I was comin’ up, and there’s some smart muthafuckas in that building. So my question is, Is it me? Is it that they lack the confidence in me? ’Cause I got mad confidence in myself. My album comes out on the 29th and I haven’t seen advertising or shit for it. I go out on the road, do my fuckin’ radio and all that shit. I don’t really see the snipes, none of that shit, not like it used to be. Shit, I know how shit work. I been in the game a long time. Somebody tell me something. Make me a muthafuckin’ believer again because I’m not seeing it.

Are they giving a better push to other artists?
Yeah, I think so. I want to push my shit back because of that, but they’re like, “No, we can’t push it back.” They don’t go out on the street with us and see how people respond to us when we walkin’ up and down the block. All they see is BDSs. Not even SoundScan, because for real, Ghostface, that album should be off the charts with them fuckin’ BDSs he got on that fuckin’ Ne-Yo record. That record did more for Ne-Yo than it did for Ghost. It gave Ne-Yo street credibility. He just rollin’ now. He just rockin’. He that dude. I’m not hatin’ on the kid, I don’t even know the kid, but I ain’t really feelin’ him right now based on that.

You feel like Ne-Yo benefited from song more than Ghost did?
Yeah, but it wasn’t his fault. You can’t hold back a hit record and a star, but I feel like the way the label did that shit, it was a maneuver that was not in Ghost’s benefit at all. I think they should’ve gave him another look after the Ne-Yo record.

Why do you think they didn’t give him a second single?
He fast food right now. A lot of these labels are treatin’ niggas like fast food. They just throwin’ the records out there and not giving them the push. They like, We gonna push it two weeks before and two weeks after and then that’s it. If it got legs, it got legs. If not, fuck it. And that shit ain’t no way to do it. What happened to an artist’s relevance? But me? I’m muthafuckin’ happy to be on Def Jam, I’ll tell you that much, because it’s synonymous with hip-hop, period. All I’m asking is that Def Jam keep it hip-hop.

Has it been weird or different having an artist as your boss…
He ain’t my boss.

Jay’s the President of your record company. That doesn’t make him your boss?
Nah. I mean, Kevin Liles, when he was there, he wasn’t my boss. I mean, he’s the staff’s boss. He’s gotta make heads roll when the staff don’t step up and do they job, but what he gonna tell me? “Meth, get in the fuckin’ studio”?

Do you have much interaction with Jay?
Not really, but I love the shit outta Jay. He know it. That’s my dude. Y’all need to stop that bullshit, because he’s nobody’s boss except that staff. He’s the president of Def Jam, not the artists. We sorta like loners.

You don’t have a boss?
Hell no! I ain’t got no boss! I’m self-made, nigga! They don’t sign my muthafuckin’ check, they give me a loan for my services, which I have to pay back. Does that sound like I’m workin’ for somebody? Jay ain’t my boss, L.A. ain’t my boss, ain’t none of those muthafuckas my boss. I was there before Jay, L.A., and all them niggas any fuckin’ way. I got seniority.

How come you didn’t have this type of fire on the last album?
The last album I was just swimmin’, not to drown. Def Jam was going through they transition. Everybody was leaving. Kevin Liles, my brother, left me and Redman. But I would never block somebody from a check. If niggas wasn’t gonna treat you right, by all means, leave, nigga. I’d do the same shit. I wish Kevin and his family the best, man. I wish Lyor the best, man. Nigga signed me!

There must have been a time when you considered following them over to Atlantic.
I thought about it, but I’m a Def Jam dude. I’m one of those niggas. I want to end my career at Def Jam. But at the same time, I don’t want them to end my fuckin’ career.

Are you gonna do a video for the Lauryn Hill record?
Def Jam was more interested in the song being a first single than I was. I wanted it to be the second single to knock me out the water. But somebody leaked the record [cough] Def Jam [cough]. They went for the record. The problem they ran into was they didn’t know that radio would have a problem with me saying, “Radio lying, that ain’t where the hip-hop lives.” Anybody that took offense to that record, it was meant for them. There was a lot of backlash for that record. Some people don’t wanna play it. I ain’t even been invited Hot 97. I live in New York and I still I ain’t did New York radio. I did Power and that was it.

They wouldn’t let you on Hot 97 because of that line?
I have no idea what’s going on over there. You gotta talk to the label. I came up with Hot 97 and Hot 97 came up with Wu-Tang. I still ain’t done the station and they don’t play the record. And that shit started with Funkmaster Flex. Flex played the record and he was like—this is second hand now, I’m getting it from somebody else—he was like, “Hmm, interesting. I thought Meth was cool with Hot 97?” I am cool with Hot 97. The fuck? Why would you even put that out there like that? Just play the muthafuckin’ record, my dude. He put a extra little “umph” on it and opened a few eyes up. Since then, I ain’t heard the record.

So it sounds like you’re still undecided about whether it will work as a single.
It’s already out there but they not playing it, B. I think we up to like a thousand spins. Then it kinda reflects back at the label. They’re saying I went to the radio stations discrediting the single. How could I discredit one of my own fuckin’ songs that I spit on? The only thing I said when I went up in radio was, “This is the first single. Def Jam picked it.” And then I would back it up with, “If it were up to me, I would’ve came with something more heavy-hitting.” Meth likes to shake his ass at the club. I would’ve came with that single after, but I would’ve never came with that single first.

methTWO2.jpgDidn’t you not want to release “All I Need” as a single on the first album?
I did everything in my power to discredit that fuckin’ song and the shit still went platinum as a single. I didn’t have anybody at Def Jam blaming me or saying any sideways shit about me discrediting the song as being a single. All of the sudden, now there’s a problem with Meth being on the radio saying, “Nah, I don’t think this is a good first single for me.” Now it’s a problem. “Oh, Meth, we would’ve gotten the spins up if you woulda never fuckin’ discredited your own single on the radio.” I ain’t discredit no fuckin’ body. And when the stupid-ass fuckin’ DJs call the fuckin’ label, “Hey am I playing the right muthafuckin’ song here? According to Meth, I’m not.” And I never even fuckin’ said that shit, the stupid son of a bitch. A lot of times I hear out the building, “Oh Meth is a rotten person again.” At Def Jam, it got to the point where I was the bad guy up there, man. All I was doing was defending myself and looking out for myself. I ain’t done shit to none of these muthafuckas, man.

Why do you think they view you as the bad guy?
I ain’t afraid to speak my mind and talk up about my shit when it’s fucked up. See the little things don’t matter to them because it don’t affect them. But I walk up in Def Jam and I see a poster and it says “Def Jam All-Stars ’06,” and they got everybody’s picture on there but mine, even Redman’s picture on there. It’s like, how you gonna put Redman and forget about me? I wasn’t forgotten. I was excluded! I’m not supposed to flip about that? If you don’t let them know, this shit continues. So now it’s like, “This nigga Meth, he a loose cannon. Yadda yadda yadda.” When all Meth was doing was checking his best interests, defending himself. I think that shit is so wrong and unfair, man, to be labeled as the crazy one. They think I’m crazy. It’s not the good crazy like, “Oh, he crazy.” It’s like, “That nigga crazy.”

Do you think you’ll be able to work all this out?
All I ask is that these muthafuckas give me a fair shake, ’cause you got some individuals up there right now, they don’t ride as hard for certain artists as they would for others. I feel like you should do your job to the fullest ability regardless to who the artist is. But there are people up there like that. It’s like high school, where these people clique up over here, they supposed to be the cool people. Everybody got they cliques.

You feel like you’re not down with the cool clique anymore?
I don’t know what the fuck is going on. I’m not down with any clique. I’m an outsider. I’m one of the social misfits right now.

  • Matty C

    I don’t know man, It seems like Def Jam is just not doing their artists right. Ghost, Joe Budden, now Meth. Where is the promotion. These are hot artists that don’t seem to be getting a real push. People respect these guys in the industry and their not getting any from their own label. Everyone wants to praise Jay-Z being the president n all but he hasn’t really done shit. I love Jay but damn, maybe this isn’t the job for you. Def Jam is like an all RNB label. I want to wish you good luck Meth and I know I’ll be buying your album the day it comes out. Maybe you need to look for a new home. Def Jam is legendary in Hip-Hop but it seems that a good thing has come to an end at that label. One

  • http://www.myspace.com/specialopsbez B-EZ

    i feel all of what y’ll are saying.i love meth as much as the next man (no homo) but can anybody honestly say hes spitting half as hot as he was 7 years ago.of course not (and yes ive heard “presidential MC” and yes its hot but still).that could have a little something to do with it.he admitted himself in the first part of the article that hes not a good beat selector.def jam definetly jerked ghost and they could be showing meth a little more respect in the building but to act like it has nothing to do with his current skill level is just living in denial.

  • G Off

    He sounds like another grumpy artist who doesn’t want to put the time and effort into a project (supporting your album by saying that this song that you are playing shouldn’t be a single isn’t the best idea), but he wants all the support of the label. Listen Meth, do your part and the label will do it’s part.

  • Dima

    but he is a talent raper and def jam doesnt give him posability to open him self… (sory for english im not american) :)

  • 5 STAR X-E-Q-SHUN

    Meth, dude, keep doin ur thing cuz Death, er, Def Jam is fuckin U over big time.
    Think about it- back in 2000 they had Foxy Brown, Redman, Warren G., DMX, DJ Clue, Method Man, Jayo Felony etc…Look @ them(Def Jam) now. It’s a joke of a label.
    Still w8in on that REDMAN album guyz…

  • Bloodline

    Yo Meth has dug deep into himself and found the secret to his success. I think he’s gully again. But times have changed and Def Jam is on some soft pussy r’n'b shit. Meth go independent on Koch or summin make more from 250 000 in sales than platinum on a major label. Atleast your sound will be uncomprimised.

    If thats too much work get DMX to get you in with Sony.

  • gees dat dude

    its hard to stay relevant after ten bein in the game so long these lil mafuckas who be spendin they money on cds and shit could give a fuck about meth. meth aint had a real hit since like 95. most of the fuckin market was like 3 or some shit they dont remember meth bein hot. i wasnt checkin for fuckin for no niggas that came out in 85 back in 97 why do these niggas still expect that shit find a new hustle nigga.

  • grand dragon

    Def jam’s fucked up, fucked ghostface over, redman’s last album under def jam was 6 years ago, joe budden gettin fucked, and now meth.
    now i understand fully y Dmx and Cam’Ron left, hope they all leave and go to atlantic cause thats where its at now days

  • Chris Bowman ( ChefB1 )

    Meth would find it hard to go plat in todays market, ber his debut his albums have been sub-par.

    He got great presence and personality and talent but he doesnt utilise it to his best potential at times.

    If he did jump ship to another label there’s no guarantee things would be better, bar going Independent where he’d get a bigger cut from record sales, but maybe a lesser propmotion budget ( but DefJam aint giving him much of that as it is ).

    Album coming out on the 29th, i havent seen one advertisment or poster fot it yet..

  • Chris Bowman ( ChefB1 )

    We need that B.A.S.I.C album from Meth & Red also. Blackout was a decent album, if that came out First and got a decent push and good feedback from the fans it’d be a great help in 421…being a success..in my opinion anyway

  • jon jon–23

    I agree with Gees partially. Rap is constantly changing and it is pretty much controlled by youngsters (buyers and artists). Kid’s aint checkin’ for most 30-something year old rappers because some of their parents are-30 something. I also think that Jay Z has no idea how to run a record company. Dame was the brains behind Rocafella and they probably should have made him president of Def Jam.

  • DJ Xcalibur

    Yo Meth hang in there man. I think Def Jam will get their shit straight. I think you album is going to be a BANGA! Just make those cats at Def Jam listen to you. You know the market, you know what works so make them see it your way. Def Jam is a Hip-Hop label and their first and last priority should be listen ing to their artist…PERIOD. Fight for yours man. They will do you right in the end. Promise.

  • e

    Def Jam is killing hip hop how are they not gonna promote real artists like Meth, Buddens, Redman, or Ghostface

  • Screw Musik King

    Meth is one of the nicest. Period. And you guys need to quit talking to Meth like he’s gonna see this or something.

    yo New York aint New York no more…. and you can blame the record labels for that… They trying to ride the coat tails of the down south trend forgetting what made East Coast hip-hop a hit in the first place… Meth on “Tical: 2000″ you smashed it that CD was New York, a memorable CD…. persevere kid find a way to make to bring it back, people are always going to doubt, but dont doubt your self…. OneLife.OneLove

  • BmoresBeauty

    Years ago we all use to know what def jam is about. But today theres a big question Mark. I myself love jay but what def jam has become is the biggest disappointment ever. This is where Hip Hop started. Now they wanna be sellin that bubble gum shit. Now i’m young and yet i still know what quality music is and i believe 110 percent that you should never turn your back on some of the best that ever did it. With out ghost meth and red alot niggas wouldn’t be where they at today. Meth it’s all love from Bmore Baby! Keep doin your thing cuz i’m behind you even tho your label aint.
    DEF JAM GET YO SHIT TOGETHER!

  • jon jon–23

    The only time true “New York” rap sold is back in the early to late 80′s (when rap was still new). When New York made a comeback in 1994, yall bit the West Coast and the south talking about being young, horny, and getting the cake. I aint mad though, because they tryin’ to get the almighty dollar. You think what I’m saying is bullshit? In 1993 New York didn’t matter but Big came out and put New York back on. Him and Puffy did it by changing the music (better melodies and heavier bass) and the whole vibe. New York was on some corny type shit before then, but Big came out rapping about cars, clothes, bitches, and makin’ money– with trunk rattling beats. The thing that distinguished him is that he was an absolute lyrical genius with a laid back but authoritative and spontaneous flow. Jay Z rode what Big started and there you go. Jay Z was lyrical and credible enough to get New York (the media capital of the world) to give him all the props. Even though Jay wasn’t on the level with Big, he was good. That (with his business savvy) was enough to get white mutha fuckas to buy his shit. That’s what you need in order to do big numbers (ask Nelly and M&M who outsold Jay by a longshot on an album to album basis). New York of course has had some good rappers, but they are usually blown to mega status by east coast niggas. Meth is one of those role player niggas from New York. He’s a pretty good rapper, but in New York pretty good is blown into king status. Now rap has passed him by. I aint hatin’ but he should try some mo’ shit. If he acted or executive produced some tight artist I would definitely support him. Know this New York: you will never have the rap game like you did in the past because kids want to hear niggas that talk like them, think like them, and are going through the same things that they are. Now that all regions have had success at rapping, they aint trying to hear you disrespect they style. They can just refuse to listen to your music. What does this have to do with Method man? Not to much, but he don’t matter much as a rapper. Lol. (Respect to Nas a true New York lyracist–not just a paper champion like the majority of those rappers).

  • flip

    im from staten island i have been disapointed with meth last 2 albums. i feel him about what he is say about hot 97 and talk too much funk flex, them mother fucker dont do hiphop they do just me the money. come on hiphoppers our culture is america couture culture, and those radio owners know this so they keep feeding the hiphop generation garbage and that line he say proves it by not getting spins. and ghost is what a nyc emcee is. i still going to support meth cause his mental is still for culture of HIPHOP by speaking his mind about how businesss is destroying HIPHOP. and this not cause we r from staten we r from the civilization HIPHOP. WU-TANG PEACE 2 DA GODS FROM STATEN. THE OLNY WAY NEW YORK IS GOING TO Get HIPHOP back going back 5 percent lessons and forget the real and deal with these devils running the country and they almost got the world. BY THE WAY
    NAS IS COMING NOW I MADE YOU LOOK CAUSE IT WAS WRITTEN NOW ITS GOING TOO GET ILL-MATIC WHEN WE SHOW U THE REAL NEW YORK STATE OF MIND, ONE

    Method Man been weak since his first album, people still trying to remember him from the wu-tang days. He is clearly an overated rapper who shouldn’t even be put along side redman.

  • Sam Muller

    Anyone who thinks meth is wack is stupid as fuck and probably the type of cat that only listens to the beat and none of the words. Same type that just like to dance to the base heavy tracks with some cornball ass rapper talking about chico sticks and pussy. Y’all n*gg*s better start paying attention because when lyricism comes back and the radio start dick riding real skills, y’all will be lost and your favorite(alleged)rappers will drown in a pool they to short to stand in. Shout out to Big Mef, Reggie, Ghost,Pun(R.I.P) and the old Marshall!

    Your living in the past, method man isn’t half as good as he used to be. I agree with you that lyrics are lacking these days but meth can easily slide under that bracket of mc’s that fell off. Can you honestly say that he is the same mc that gave us “bring the pain”?

  • http://www.myspace.com/sirjantzversatile Sir Jantz

    Method Man is a man of many methods. You can discredit him. He is the man. Too many people hate nowadays. I have no problem with dude. I hated when that chick came and blasted his wife like that. That was too personal. I think its line certain people cross that makes artists lose it. If the tables were turned, the outcome would be different. What if Method Man was out there putting people personal life in the streets? It wouldn’t be too friendly now would it. Method man, keep dont your thing. I was dissapointed in the last album, but then I understand. Sometimes as an artists we get burned out. I know you got some heat up your sleeve Tical. They don’t call em Johnny Blaze for nothing!!!

  • http://thelabel the postman

    he will never be the bring the pain mc again.

    My suggestion is that someone sit down with meth and explain to him that he should move on. Do movies, sell speed sitck and all that other commercial ish he’s been doing for the last few yrs. Time keeps going everyone does not keep up he was good not great and now he’s 12yrs older. Hip hop fans respect Meth the crin ain’t a good look son.

  • 11kap

    I don’t think Method Man can depend on Def Jam anymore, because they are selling out on some teeny-bopperish mess. Record Labels don’t know how to value pioneers anymore…Their loss.

  • Afrika

    I’ll have to agree with Mr. Meth! Its funny how his project isn’t being push and catered too by the label, but the president of the company that he is signed to is on the verge of releasing a solo project by the end of the year! Imagine that…Brothers are too concerned with solidifying their legacy instead of handling their job that they were assigned to do – and that’s the type of shit that I don’t condone!

  • jon jon–23

    Method man can’t sell records because rap has passed him by. The only reason Nas was signed is because Jay Z wanted to show him who the boss is.

  • 11kap

    New York niggas kick ass always and don’t forget it, corny boy! Whoever is bigging up all this country rap must be a damn redneck. Watch what you say, fucker! You didn’t start this hip hop industry, but you want to take all the credit for it. We need to get back to the issues, man, and kill all that redneck bullshit. Most of that country rap shit advocates the destruction of black people anyway…ignorant, tired, no knowledge promoting ass shit. Wake the fuck up!

    I agree with Mr.Meth, if Def Jam puts out his album on the 29th of this month without the proper push that someone of Method Man’s status should get then itz gonna brick! No disrespect to the “Roots”, but I’ve been seeing promo for these cats for about 2 months already (wazzup wit dat). Could President Carter be playing favorites….hmmmmm?

  • http://www.myspace.com mista ren

    meth dumb as shit cause he should leave def jam and stop bitching and sign with koch,aslsum,atantic,sony,tvt,etc…thats like if u at work and u got a problem with ur boss or whoever u gonna address the problem and if the problem aint fixed u look 4 anotha job stop bitching and switch lables dickhead.

  • Last of a Dying Breed

    Its a damn shame what rap has come to. To think that Def Jam, of all places, would neglect to push their artists is a shame. No promotion for meth??? Thats some bullshit. Even Rick Ross’ shit. i didnt even know it was out until i read these comments. And they damn sure didnt push Juelz shit, him and Dipset pushed his shit on their own. But I feel the most for Ghostface, cuz Fishscale was one of his best albums yet. It had at least 2 more “so-called pop” singles that could’ve been pushed, and the rest could’ve been released to keep his name going and the streets happy. But al they’re doing is pushing the RnB movement.

    But isnt it strange how we are already hearing things about Jay’s album that isnt even complete??? They’re plugging his album n MTV, BET, the Radio, and Internet, and then saying that “I’m not supposed to say anything, but…”

    Thats fucked up… Real fucked up!

  • LA KING

    ONE MORE THING,NOT TO TAKE ANYTHING AWAY FROM JAY Z THE RAPPER CAUSE HE’S A DOPE MC,BUT IF HE DOES NOT DO SOMETHING FAST DEF JAM IS GONNA SINK,LOOK AT DR DRE HE’S FOCUSED ON HIS ARTIST’S AND NOT HIS OWN SHIT THATS A REAL C.E.O(PRESIDENT).JAY Z NEEDS TO STOP ALL THAT POP SHIT AND GET THESE ARTIST OUT.THEN MEMPHIS BLEEK ALWAYS WONDERS WHY HIS SHIT ALWAYS FLOPPED.

  • Mr.Me

    Damn its fucked up how they doin Meth. This was a good read though.

  • LA KING

    JAY Z STEP YOUR PRESIDENTIAL GAME UP,STOP DOIN METH DIRTY

  • Wu-Tang Warrior

    It’s really too bad about Meth’s situation at Def Jam. Personally, I think him, Ghost and Funk Doc should move over to Aftermath. No matter HOW hot Meth’s new project is it’s not going to sell jack shit (“Fishcale” anyone?) because the Def Jam is more focussed making the pop acts get all the attention rather than artists with actual talent. With Dre at least they’ll get good promotion and some of the illest beats the world has to offer. How can you go wrong with that?

  • John Cochran

    Def jam focusing on RnB and southern shit and forgetting about the artists that built the label. He shouldda jumped ship with Kevin Liles. One thing I do think though is that he should stop bitchin.

  • e

    Dre won’t do anything for Meth doesn’t anyone remember any of the other rappers he signed like Rakim, The DOC, King T, or Xzibit I doubt a move to aftermath would help

  • http://XXLmag.com Westside Money

    They needa play Meth cause Meth is a hip hop legend and thats my boy.I think maybe Meth should leave Def Jam cause Jay-Z is just not doing it as president.I just think Jay-Z shouldnt be president I guess Dmx was right bout him.

  • Fred D

    Its looking Kinda shaky at Def Spam Right now, why are gonna push a Nigga with No rhymes and has no experience in the game?? why cause them dick sucking niggas is riding with HOV thats why.. as u can see already established dudes seem to get less love cause they they own person not like these other clowns who are Made up for the T.V.. I dunno man shit is looking funny over there, I dont Get it??

Do your Due! Fuk the radio and the record company! all u need to do is hope they put the record out.

  • dc

    you all are acting like it’s 97 again meth ain’t been hot since then. Def jam is in the sam situation with DMX another one who fell off. Why the fuk if im the head of a label would i spend money t promote some shit i know that’s not going to sell…shit is about money fuk loyalty the niggas wack get a day job pu$$y

  • 11kap

    Dane, DC! That was straight to the point.

    I guess it is time for the older rappers to retire by the age of 30, because by that time, they lose that youthful rebelliousness. A lot of older rappers don’t want to admit that. I mean, they are still relevant, but you get kinda played out after you have already rapped too long. Nobody wanna hear you make a different song about the same old stuff. Maybe Meth should start his own label. Don’t depend on mass media.

  • ronald

    back in ’97 a friend of mine sold “wu-tang forever” to me.
    my first hip hop cd/album.
    not from america, deep undecipherable lyrics (for a 13 year old)………needless to say, i hated the shit.
    but at the same time, i knew that there was something real about this shit.
    i heard that triumph was a hit but wasn’t really feeling it.
    then i listened to the track right after on the second disc “impossible”.
    that shit was so deep it made my eyes water.
    then i really saw and felt it……hip hop!!!!!!!
    i loved true hip hop and the wu ever since.
    i now have an almost complete appreciation for that album now.
    meth was a foundation of that shit, and by extension, hip hop.
    has any recent album done that for any of you hip hop “fans” recently????
    can fuckin rhianna, or ne-yo do that????
    i’m so sick of them fuckin love songs too!!!!
    can them “artistes” give you cuban links, tical, or iron man?????
    for those of you who care/DARE to listen try ice cream or verbal intercourse on the cuban links.
    when you done tell me if that wasn’t nas’ illest fuckin verse
    the fuckin WU not def (rap and bullshit) jam gave us that
    show some respect america
    if we in the 3rd world can see this,
    why the fuck you hip hop cultured people shakin your laffy taffy while shit like this goin on????
    i think pac lucky to be alive to not see what this shit turned into

    ‘this rap game ain’t what it seems, artistes get cream turn feind, sellin people a dream’

    ps i use my real name cause i talkin real shit

  • Amore

    It’s a sad thing when the labels do that, but that’s been the recent shift after all these new artist started coming out. They sell records b/c of hooks now, not real talent. Everybody got a song about some kind of dance. It’s like the early 90′s and ganster rap. Talent always prevails and hip hop will come back with actual rappers and not gimmicks.

  • newyorkhiphop

  • stillmatik13

    yo, wu-tang forever man. but i personally feel that meth’s album isn’t gonna be any more successful than the ghostface album which was sick with it. these days, people are so infatuated with such phony music such as the ying yang twins and 50 cent.

  • rubyspirit

  • Inferno

    Yo man, I think they are doing Meth wrong, because he is right Ghost song ft. Ne-yo, he got the shine not Ghost. Meth is tight, and he was the tightest out of the Wu, so whats the problem the radios and his people are trying to hold him back. Let Meth shit play and let that man have his shine. Peace Meth and I hope your wife is doing better.

    Inferno a loyal Fan.

  • SY Young

    maybe if he would stop crying and get in the studio we wouldnt have this problem.. lets face it besides u-god (who likes that guy) meth has the worst wu solo albums, hell even ca(b)adonnas solo joint was hotter than meths.. and lets not talk about how far ahead redmans albums are compared to him. step ya game up meth.

  • Shaolin souldja

    peace. WU TANG FOREVA. Straight up -WU NEVER really got alot of burn on radio-especially not now when niggaz wanna hear lean wit it rock wit it- WHY AM I SEEING niggaz in BROOKNON of all places beating some laffy taffy shit boppin his head like that was the most john blaze shit he heard in years- NIGGA PLEASE. cat in the hat, hop on pop, mother goose ass rhymes. WU’s music has had to sell for itself all these years..like son up top said..make HOT music and it will sell..stop tryin to cater to the DEGRADATION of our music. got people SHUCKIN AND JIVING talkin bout “oh the south is on they grind” f all that- these labels changing hip hop and pushing this simple minded ass music- get them (negros mostly)dancing instead of talkin about any positivity or knowledge.. ALL EYES SEEING! forget a NAS, TALIB,AZ,or WU tryin to ENLIGHTEN these young nigs onto anything else or at least give them some real hip hop. Got this B.S. “HIP-POP” out now..songs be hot for 2 months and u never hear them again…no longevity. f the damn radio 2 years now i dont listen to that shit. WBLS yeah. F the label-they aint gone promote that shit..what’d they do for GHOST? and he had the “popular” single… man meth only gone get posters in shaolin on broad and gordon and in the Hill- FINALLY METH NEED TO STEP HIS JOINTS UP..last 2 albums definitely been type bland and i wasnt feelin how son was trying to put RZA out there talking bout him not producing for him- GHOST hasnt had much RZA production for years and managed to put out classics (see SUPREME CLIENTELE. especially WAHALA-dum ass nig.) Unfortunately i feel like even if METH had a flame album it wouldnt get any play…or even sales.. we gotta wait for the return back to trueness..what goes around cones around i hope…only way itll happen though is if our NY ARTISTS get together and stop all this petty bullshit..i dislike 50, g.unit and most these new niggaz.. but if NY joined forces like these south niggaz- we be gettin it.. peace to outkast, scarface, eightball, bun B few other south niggaz that keep it gully. LASTLY THOUGH i went to the club last nite shit was wak… why?? DJ. ALL PRO NIGGA. what was the DJ playin? Lean wit it, shake my taffy n shit- listen dunn…i dont wanna hear that.. thats exactly why we cant even get NY shit poppin- these DJs is spining that BS half the night..shorties is shaking ass to that i cant front- but thats why i cant even go. and you want $30 $35??i cant even enjoy the music..i dont expect them to be beatin “ITS YOURS” off of wu forever..(maybe I would though)but damn NY got club bangaz too..whats good???? PEACE TO ALL MY WU HEADZZZZZZZZZ! 10304 here.

    Mr. meth is according to me one of the last real niggaz in the game. The industry is all blinded by money and profit and posers. i really urge Jay and L.A. to give what meth and other real def jam artists the promotion they deserve for their albums. Because Meth is one of these tight rappers who made DefJam what it is today

  • anti rap/ REAL HIPHOP

    Def Jam is synonymous with Hip Hop my ASS… That is the largest misquote of the year by far. Def Jam is anti- Hip Hop and it amazes me that a marginally hiphopp pioneer such as Russell Simmons could have found something so deleterious to the Hip Hop kulture.

  • HEU

    Vets are at a disadvantage right now. we all looking for that next hot dude… like Rick Ross. Lyrically, he don’t hold a candle to Meth, but he puts out better singles, period. The last album, Meth had the single with Busta. HOT. I was feinding for the album. I bought it first day it dropped. And it was a straight frisbee. you wanna compete with these young cats, you got to have a young sound, & stop trying to bring back that 90′s Wu sound.
    real talk. And I aint no hater. I wish Meth the best of luck.

  • Kareem

  • Twill

    This is a sad day in hip hop. How can a lable have the “King of NY” as their president and he doesn’t promote his own music. Jayz is NY and NY music is J…Jay don’t forget that. How in a million years….is Ghost CD not a million sold right now…why…allow me to explain…”RICK ROSS” Neyo…and others who are considered as new artist…Rick ROss album just dropped but around the time Ghost was dropping Def jam was talking more about up and coming Ross. I don’t understand the logic…”Fishscales” was a certified winner at Def Jam…THat CD could have had easily about 3 singles…I don’t understand…Gosh….Back like that could have been huge….Straight Huge, but guess what Def Jam didn’t give Ghost the proper backing and that truly sad….Ghost’s lastest CD was a banger and too bad hip hoppers didn’t get an opportunity to grasp this guy b/c of lack of promotion…Jay should be ashamed of himself….to be honest, i bet Jay’s would prefer fishscale over any CD out right now….b/c deep down he knows this is wrong….He know hip hop, it’s just ashame that he doesn’t truly have to “POWER” to make anything happen for the once respected MC’s…

    I hope Jay and others at Def Jam Read my comments…

    Everyone knows since LaReid was hired def jam is trying to go in another direction. Instead of letting artist go they are letting artist fail to drop them from their contracts so it seems like the artist fault. How can people hate on meth,ghostface,and not say the same thing about the roots and nas all have been in the game for over 10 years.I believe LaReid being having a former south base label is trying to push all of his south artist and Jay-z is just happy to be getting a check.
