Method Man On Wu-Tang Clan Lineups At Performances, Working With Dr. Dre

Meth says that his collabo with Dre never made it out, but he wouldn't mind working with him again.

Method Man has been a staple in Wu-Tang Clan's live performances, but often times not all members are able to commit to the shows. Speaking with MTV RapFix Live's Sway Calloway, Johnny Blaze explained that other obligations like movies prevent the group from joining forces as a unit.

"Certain individuals who have raised their level a little bit higher than what the rest of the Clan members were, had other obligations at times," he said. "Like this last [European] tour, RZA had a movie, he was doing his movie and he couldn’t make it out because when they lock you in, you’re locked in. a few times myself, I had movies and obligations, things like that."

Meth, who is set to star in the upcoming films The Sitter and Red Tails, also touched on his collaboration with Dr. Dre in 2002, explaining that while the West Coast veteran must not have been feeling their track together, he wouldn't mind linking up with him again.

"You gotta ask Dre. That night, I was in the studio with him, and Dre, he different. He like you to come in, be ready to go," he said. "That’s why I give a lot of credit to Xzibit, because Xzibit will go in there one take and he’s done. I got a little bit too blowed, and Dre was, ‘OK, I want you to rhyme here but then I want you to talk here but then come back into the rhyme in the middle.’ I was like, ‘Aight Dre, you got it.’ It was like five in the morning by that time. I just said, you know what? I’m going to lay this down and if he like it, he like it. And I guess not, because I ain’t never heard the song. And I ain’t heard from Dre since. But I’d definitely work with Dre."

    • hachitori

      You obviously started listening to rap last week. WU TANG IS FOREVER moron. I feel sad for you that you're too ignorant to understand this. Listen to 36 chambers again, guess what, it's still fresh. Actually listen to the first 3 albums, and all of the first solo joints. Still dope! Sure some of the members aren't as hungry as they once were (or their dead), but Ghost and Rae are definitely still holding it down.

    • the master

      Lil Wayne music sucks and The wu had creativity... Lil Wayne is trash

    funny how Dre has barely ever worked with a wu member, not even Nas, hardly even Jay for the atter of fact

    • Big Dan

      All the Wu hatas can go suck a whatever, but we get too serious on this site and here is an example: "learn your hip-hop history, you dumb bitch. Wu-Tang wasn't even around at 1971. in matter of fact, Method Man was born in that year. Lil Wayne's music really dumbed you down, huh?" I'm sure the hata who posted it knows this. If Wutang was rapping in 1971 (no one really was as a mater of fact) and we say they were 18, then, then they'll be 58 now. I'm sure the original poster does not think Meth and em are pushing 60.

    • Boom

      Dre's worked with Rae

    • IDK

      Dr. Dre worked with Nas when Nas, AZ, Foxy, and Nature collaborated as The Firm back at 1997. also, Dre produced the track, "Nas Is Coming" off of Nas' "It Was Written," Nas collaborated with KRS-One, B-Real, and RBX as Group Therapy in the song "East Coast/West Coast Kllas" off of "Dr. Dre Presents...The Aftermath," and Dr. Dre produced a song off of "Hip Hop Is Dead," so they actually had some history with each other. not a lot, but still enough to not say that they barely work with each other ;)

    • burnt

      dre worked wit nas ever hear of THE FIRM

  • Wayne Is Lord

    Fuck Wu-Tang. last hit they had? 1971? lmfaooooooooooo. Old farts.

      wayne is lord -> LOL you must be a fan of his kissing guys too bitch! This guy is probably 17 years old or something dont even take it seriously. Lil wayne fans are annoying and dont have anything better to do . you better listen to some inspiring lyrics like wu tang has and others punk

    • BlazeDatIshUp

      It seems that crackhead waynes stans are still the dumbest mofo's I've ever come across. Wu-Tang is hip hop, so to diss them means you don't like real hip hop. In the end most folks born in the 90's(or people born in the 80's and under who are just plain stupid) know nothing about real music. Plus they listen to rappers who are fake bloods, fake thugs, wear tight pants and are incoherent most of the time, so their lyrics make no sense. It's a damn shame that real music doesn't shine as much as it used to..

    • Wayne Is Lord

      Get off my dick haters. im all these names for having a opinion? fuck from round here fags. YCMB + ROC NATION bitches

      learn your hip-hop history, you dumb bitch. Wu-Tang wasn't even around at 1971. in matter of fact, Method Man was born in that year. Lil Wayne's music really dumbed you down, huh?

    • theCool

      WHAT?!? Dude for real what the fuck are you talking about? Wu Tang Clan is the culmination of what Hip Hop stands for. Originality, Substance, and just plain Dopeness. If Weezy rapped over a Wu beat, his C Minor voice and wack ass flows would show you what I joke the game seems to be today. You are a fine point of that as well I guess.

    • Blasthoro!

      @WayneisGay, You dissin Wu for LilWayne? You need yo ass kicked you delusional pusball! Take that suppository out ya ass and get a clue! Bitch ass.

    • rick

      Dre could've had a wack-ass beat and Panty-Raider woulda gone in on that shit and killed it. So many variations in his raps. How can you not feel him on a Dre track, right?

      So fucking true. Remember when Detox was set to come out? Then Again? and Again? and Again? and Again? and Again? and Again? and Again? and Again? and Again? and Again? and Again? and Again? and Again? and Again? hahaha I love Dre, but he's either an over-perfectionist, or just insane and sits on his music all day deciding what to do with it besides sell it...
