Longevity has become a rarity these days, and it’s also the very thing that keeps Method Man on the rap radar. With a work ethic unlike no other, even after being in the game 20+ years, Mef still has that wow factor when it comes to dropping punchlines and the raw, gritty flow that NYC was well-respected for in the 90’s era.
The Purple Tape is one of the bangers on Method Man’s latest studio album, titled, ‘The Meth Lab’. The track also feature fellow Wu-Tang clansmen Raekwon and Inspectah Deck. Along with friend and long-time collaborator, Redman, he refuses to compromise his creativity and loyalty to the game just for the sake of a dollar. ‘Meth Lab’ is a strong effort and solidifies proof that if there is any doubt that he can’t spit dopeness, you got it twisted! The kid can still bring it.
