Method Man Updates On "Crystal Meth” Progress, Hints At New Writing Technique

Johnny Blaze provides a status update for his fifth solo album and sheds some light on his new style.

Method Man is working on his upcoming solo album Crystal Meth, but says that it’s going to take some time to cook up. Speaking with The Hip Hop Chronicle UK, the Wu-Tang Clan swordsman said fans will have to wait to get a better product.

“Still working. I’m taking my time,” he said. “Fuck that, I don’t care what nobody say or think. I’m taking my time with this one, and it’s gonna be like a fine wine, baby.”

He describes the album as a harkening back to his 1994 debut Tical and its 1998 sequel Tical 2000: Judgement Day. “Falling back to the first album and the second album, the darker element of Meth, but with a twist on it,” he continued. “I can’t exactly tell you exactly what it is because I don’t want people biting me before I do it.” 

The “twist” has something to do with his writing technique, which he claims no one has done before. “It definitely has a twist to it. I have a new technique of writing that no one has really touched on but it’s right there for them to pick up.”

    Meth is copying Z-Ro. He has an album coming out called Meth - as part of his drug series of album is seems.

  • NY

    I actually had pretty low expectations for his next album but I like how he's talking about creativity with a writing technique. I only have the low expectations because of Def Jam they ruin every album now by forcing pop music.

  • M E T H O D

    Anything Meth makes me excited. He's my favorite sword slinger. Can't wait to see what this new writing shit is about either.

  • The MG

    New writing style? Wow, I'm anticipating the album even more now. Loved Tical and Tical 2000. 4:21 wasn't a bad album either.

  • Anonymous

    masta killa is a shady motherfucker

  • Anonymous

    I hate when artists say theyre taking it back to a certain sound/feeling and then drop the album and its soft pop music mostly. Cough cough, Fat Joe, cough cough.

  • beezlebud

    Meths a beast I like all his styles not just his old shit coz he killed it on 4:21 on joints like Say, and he bodied Wu Massacre n the joints on Rae's last 2 albums hopefully we'll get at least 1 dope Inspectah Deck feature, Deck went in on Budden provin his loyalty and love for Meth so dude mos def needs a joint on this album with just the 2 of them tradin barrs @beezlebud on twitter

  • BIG FACE ITALY

    Meth brought some deep dark raw shit with those 2 albums...so I cant wait 4 him to return to that darker side.

    who cares you old ass hell and you arent that great anymore, go on with your bullshit acting in lame movies and series. Your rapcareer is over

    • Nemesis

      go back to ur porn kid,its obvious ur a lame that listens to waka or somethin,im 20 years old an listened to wu since i was a jit cuz of my brothers,method man released 3 sick albums (tical,2000,421) an rips it in every song hes in with the wu and redman,and method man is the illest performer ive ever seen,and ive seen them all kid trust me...its people like you who kill hiphop and that id like to beat the fuck out of if i ever met in person...people like u2 still sell out stadiums,why does a rapper in his 30's is old? get the fuck outta here wit that

    • NY

      421 was a good album not great because Def Jam had their hands on it forcing slow songs that are radio friendly and much better than Tical 0 which was Def Jam's fault, Meth said it was going to be a bad album before it even came out. Also with this generation (which I'm apart of) they don't listen to anyone who seems old and they think skill bases off of age which clearly doesn't because these older rappers still spit way better than anyone who has started after 2000 besides an occasional underground artist makes something good. Most people in this generation can't even name groups/rappers from the 90's or 80's.

    • legends

      @anonymous ur fucking retarded, "wu stans" WTF is that, its termanolgy like that, that shows you a dumbass lil kid hating on rappers bcuz of age, alotta people like to see the hip hop they listened too growing up continue to thrive and keep that real shit alive, u fucking lame

    • Anonymous

      @ all the wu stans, fuckers are offended that i diss their big hero. but fact is he only made 2 dope albums but the stans cant take it. its just my opinion. and if you dont like then eat a big dick faggots.

    • murdock

      Im 30 and i cant stand this new music so let me explain some things to you..id rather listen to someone with experience in the craft of hip hop then the new rapper that has a buzz and people follow it.who knows if this will be a great album really we all dont know yet.illl tell you that meth in his prime of his career was the best out and if he died say around the time of biggie and pac everyone would talk about him like they do them for sure.age dont matter i think money kills the hunger in people but he seems like hes about the craft on this and id like to hear it so eat a dick buddy.

    • ha!

      i think we should call it a night kids.. whether u fight or not, the album is still gonna come out lol..u really think Meth will be n HHDX reading your comments and all as if you're actually gonna make a difference LOL.. yea Meth has aged but if he can still spit then WHY NOT? haters get on your job, u sitting there behind your computer typin nonsense and jerkin off like you do everyday..dats cool coz dats what you do, dats what you good at.. now let him do him coz i know there are fans who would very much appreciate a solid album from a certified veteran. PEACE!

      Hahaha! Wu stans? All I see is everyone stating that you're a silly little kid typing stupidity.

      you are NOT hip hop cornball

    • BIG FACE ITALY

      anonymous didnt get no love growin up so sad LOL

    • BIG FACE ITALY

      Putting Meth in the same line of age as Madonna and the Rollin stones LMAO are u on crack???

    • BrownJack

      @anonymous Madonna sold 3.8 million records her last album in '09. Rolling Stones went platinum the year before that. Other genres definitely respect old heads more. You've never seen a 20 year old white kid with a Pink Floyd shirt?

      @ Anonymous: you're fuckin right.

    • Anonymous

      whoa did i offend some wu stans. get the off method man first album was dope and the blackout album. so shut the fuck up. method man is done. talking about other genres do you stupid ass mff really think thatb people are waiting for a new madonna or rolling stones album???? there comes a time when you got to stop making music. But njoy method mans next weak album!

    • Kane

      He's just another kid that has keyboard courage down talk bad about somebody doing something they love to do and get paid doing it. I guess he thinks he's gonna be young forever. What a dumb ass,but in due time if he lives long enough and someone makes a comment about his favorite rapper being to old to do music will he feel the karma of his stupid comments. Think before you speak youngsta!!!!

    • ha

      dumb ass kid lol. This is another thing that's wrong with hiphop. Other genres respect and admire the old heads. They still get played on radio stations not only at noon and 3AM. Hip Hop on the other hand dont give a fuck about it's past, which is some sad shit.

    • Crystal

      Age doesn't matter, if a dude can still spit fire, so fuck if he's 40? I agree with my man above, you obviously must be a stupid motherfucker. Fuck you.

    • Sensaye252

      It's only the dumb ass rap fans that act like you're insignificant if you're over 30 years old. Go listen to these kids rap about purses and sneakers, because that's obviously your level of intelligence. Some of us grown folk actually want to listen to adults. Meth is a legend. At the very least you should have respect for the Man. But the young pricks in your generation never learned about respect.
