#NowPlaying : Method Man – The Purple Tape (feat. Raekwon, Inspectah Deck)

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.

#NowPlaying : Redman Feat. Method Man, Xzibit, & Raekwon – ‘Step Up’

With hopes that Redman’s ‘Muddy Waters 2’ Lp will still come to fruition, he drops a few joints to keep us from losing all faith. Taken from his latest mixtape, Muddy Waters 2 (The Prelude), he drops a collaborative joint titled ‘Step Up’, which features his beloved hip hop brother Method Man and also Raekwon and Xzibit. One thing we can give Red respect for is that fact that he still connects with today’s hip hop fans, he still gets show money, and he keeps our hopes alive for MW2 and How High 2! Gotta smoke one to that!

Video: Ja Rule Feat. DMX, Method Man, & Nas – ‘Grand Finale’

Classic! This is a song taken from the original ‘Belly’ soundtrack. Back then, these dudes were considered unstoppable and it seemed as though the music world revolve around them. This was a great compliment to the movie itself which critics said would not do good in theaters. On the contrary, the movie was dubbed a ‘hood classic’ and the soundtrack featured a slew of certified heat from some of the industry’s top mc’s.

Throwback Joint: Rza Feat. Method Man & Baretta 9 – ‘La Rumba’

In the early 2000’s, the Wu Tang and it’s leader Rza, went through their own renaissance period. Rza wanted to expand his talents and gravitated towards soundtracks and screeplays. But he still managed to churn out some classic tracks with his Wu brethren during the process.

Wu-Tang To Reunite; Set For Tour With Yelawolf


Many fans are anxious to see the Wu-Tang Clan reunite next month when they kickoff a tour with newly signed Shady Records artist, Yelawolf. The tour is due to begin in June on June 11 in London, England at the HMV Forum. Gza was recently weighed in with his thoughts of the reunion, “I feel really great about this tour and I love to perform in the UK…The British fans can expect lots of energy and we’ll be bringing our best, as we always do. We’re really excited about all performing together again and definitely lookin forward to it.” Everyone seems to be getting ready for this tour but no one has yet to confirm whether or not Method Man and The Rza inclusion of the tour. I’m sure that the fans would appreciate their presence in this upcoming Wu reunion.Many fans are anxious to see the Wu-Tang Clan reunite next month when they kickoff a tour with newly signed Shady Records artist, Yelawolf.

Throwback Joint: EPMD – ‘Symphony 2000’

When this video hit, the rap world welcomed it with open arms. This joint was off EPMD’s second album released after their hiatus as a group. The two artists, Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith split from making music together because of some differences amongst them. It was also a big moment because it played as an introduction to the world of New Jersey female lyricist, Lady Luck. As you will see in this video, she went in hard and held her own against the other mc’s featured on this classic, who were considered ‘titans’ of the game at that present moment in time.

Video: Raekwon – ‘Ferry Boat Killers’

Raekwon didn’t waste time releasing the official video for his ‘Ferry Boat Killers’. Shout out to Prodigy of Mobb Deep, who makes an appearance in the video.

Throwback Joint: Method Man Feat. Mary J. Blige – ‘All I Need’

Remember when hip hop was fun? Remember when radio wasn’t so predictable and their was the element of variety. This week’s throwback pick is dedicated to all the true fans and believers that hip hop is truly something special. This month will now always be remembered as the month we lost Biggie and Nate Dogg. It doesn’t matter what coast they were representing, but it is very important to know that they repped hip hop to the fullest. There isn’t a living soul out there today that could tell us that this throwback wasn’t the ‘joint’ back in the day.
