Back To The Lab.
Not to get it confused with his long-delayed Crystal Meth album, Method Man was initially set to release his mixtape, The Meth Lab last March. Since then, Meth has announced the project will now be an album and will be released on August 21. Here’s what he had to with the Nerdist on what we can expect.
“I kept it real and low-key, like I do in my studio. I know a lot of artists that have reached out, but I wanted to save those artists for my last Method Man album. I wanted this one to be a platform for more Staten Island artists to be heard that aren’t getting heard, because you know if it isn’t Wu Tang–I mean, we never blocked anyone from trying to get a record deal. I mean the way the record industry works is, if something’s not broke, don’t fix it. Bottom line is there’s a lot more talent to be heard from Staten Island outside of Wu Tang artists, and these kids are dope. I wanted to just give them a platform to be heard. I’m on every song, but I’m not exactly on any songs by myself, with the exception of one.”
