Method Man Blasts Critics Of "Chozen" TV Show About Gay White Rapper

Method Man addresses critics who say the TV show, about a gay White rapper, is hurting Hip Hop.

Method Man says he has heard a lot of criticism about his work as the co-star of Chozen, an animated comedy about a gay White rapper who was recently released from prison. 

Method Man recently spoke on Twitter about the criticism he has heard regarding the TV show, a program made by the creators of HBO's Eastbound & Down. In his series of Twitter posts, which were published during the week, Method Man said that he does not care about anyone's opinion of a show they have not seen yet, noting that the program is slated to premiere January 13 on FX.

In his Twitter statement, Method Man, who recently announced his The Meth Lab project, also says that he did not work on this program for the money. He says he was paid $1,500 - $2,000 an episode. "It was a favor," Method Man says. According to Method Man, he did the work for free at first, only confirming that he was paid after "the show got picked up" by FX.

Furthermore, Method Man chastised critics of the show. "It's a fuckin cartoon.These same hatin ass nigs cheer for Omar from the wire tho," Meth said in a Twitter post. "So fuck off wit all that it hurts hip-hop bs only thing hurtin hip hop is u self loathing over opinionated wannabe thug ass niggas..smh."

Omar from The Wire refers to Omar Little, a character in The Wire who is a gay man. Omar Little was portrayed by Michael K. Williams on the television series. 

Chozen is said to be written and executive produced by Grant Dekernion, who also reportedly raps on the songs featured on the show. SNL's Bobby Moynihan is set to star in the series as Chozen, the lead character of the show. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Method Man, Michael Pena, Hannibal Buress, Kathryn Hahn, Nick Swardson, Dekernion and Danny McBride are set to also work on the show. 

The trailer for the series can be found below, followed by Method Man's Twitter posts.

 

As reported January 10, Method Man has released the cover art for his The Meth Lab mixtape, which is set to be released in March. Method Man also said his Crystal Mef album is slated to be released in August.

    Rappers will do anything for a dollar. Eminem started with the cross dressing, them Mackelmore made the gay anthem and now they have a fake Boondocks with a gay white rapper. Welp, y'all let the shit slide like it was cool so you cant be made now that the floodgates are open and whites, gays, Canadians and hipsters have rerouted the direction of the culture from African-American street culture to hippie homo hop.

  • EPhraZe

    Didn't Method Man say that there wasn't a place for homosexuality in hip hop, if I'm not mistaken. Unfortunately, niggas will sell their souls for that guap. #AnotherSelloutAss Nigga

    Why is everybody on this comment board so insecure about their sexuality? Don't worry you don't have to act tough for people not to think you are gay.

    • Mina Lou

      How on earth is disapproving of this show being "insecure about your sexuality"? No one's questioning whether they like dick or pussy here, this is about the slander of rap. Why couldn't they make the gay dude a rock band drummer or some shit? Why do they always have to infiltrate our music? They need to keep all that shit on the white people genres.

  • da commanda

    If the idea is wack, it's wack...Meth is my boy, but the whole premise of this show is trash...

  • mistah meth

    I think method man IS the gay white rapper.

  • Anonymous

    Niggas view this type of shit as an attack on black identity as well as an attempt to feminize or curtail black culture's masculinity. You can't really change anyone's mind about this because niggas will just identify your efforts as whites to demonize us and our sexuality.

    • HALIMACANDY

      We are in a cultural war /f you don not recognize and analyze any representation of black culture without historical cntext of white racism,white supremacy ,then you have no location for framing this agruement opposition/.The representation of the black man as animal and beast has been the mainstay of the FOX CORP NETWORK... SLAVERY TO RECONSTUCTION TO JIM CROW ..this social and political continium has maintain mass incareration and murder, Fox has never been a network that supported black people ,just ask rush and hanity and you know this is Rupert murdoch's baby//owner, he supports the republican partIy, wake up, petition this show,BURN THIS SHOW..STOP DEFAMATION

    I'm disappointed by the fact that there are a lot of brothers buying into the concepts of "hurting hip hop" or "killing hip hop". Hip hop is the expression of a niggas soul and you cant destroy our soul we're too strong for that. Now, as for Meth's involvement with this show, it is what it is. It doesn't mean anything unless you dumb niggas make it mean something.

  • Anonymous

    Meth missed the point. Omar didn't need to be gay. "Anonymous: "because this is the latest media effort in their agenda to feminise black culture"

    • OC

      Yes, the monolithic "media" is attempting to feminize black culture by making a low budget cartoon about a gay white guy on FX. I bet they threatened that SNL writer's family with Jewish assassins to write episodes for them, those evil bastards

    Also @ 90% of DX comments... "only thing hurtin hip hop is u self loathing over opinionated wannabe thug ass niggas..smh."

    sorry but that shit was wild funny!..satire is a much needed form of criticism in hip hop nowadays,people take themselves way too serious.It will put a lot of peoples idea of what stereotypes have done to this culture in perspective

    That trailer was funny as shit, its a cartoon so its madd ghetto and even if the character is white he is really placing a mirror on alot of rappers regardless of their color. I will watch it

  • Big Gay Dave

    What's wrong with being gay in the hip hop community?? On a side note, that Method Man is one tasty looking brother. What I wouldn't do if he was willing to lay with me!

  • Dewayne Darmanie

    meth got no excuse bein a part of this garbage its flat out overdone gay humor

  • TheRealness

    This is stupid will not watch this and yes it is hurting hip hop too many "yes men" type of ****s also this is why music/hip hop is a joke nowadays. If this came out in the 90s or early 00s Meth will not do this it's all about the money a lot of ****as are selling they souls quick.

      theres gotta be a whole bunch of easier ways for someone like meth to come up on a few g's if it was really only about the money

    • Fuck Outta Here

      I would argue that if a cartoon about a fictional character can actually 'hurt' hip hop, then hip hop has far bigger problems with it's current state of being. 2k an episode isn't much money, so I doubt Meth did this for the cash.

  • TheRealness

    And I also miss shows like the The Wire.

    why the character couldnt be a rock singer or a country western singer?,,,,,meth is talking that bullshit,,,fuck out of here!!!!!

      "why the character couldnt be a rock singer or a country western singer?,,,,,meth is talking that bullshit,,,fuck out of here!!!!!"

    From the looks of that clip this is not cool on any level!

I know people like him exist so I won't insult anyone's intelligence but I don't have to condone it either.

    • Fuck Outta Here

      How can you act all high and mighty upon your little soap box when your name is Money First? Are you upset over the potential homosexual connotations that a cartoon would have over today's youth, yet at the same time want to teach the kids 'get money fuck everything else'?

  • PROTECT-YA-NECK

    Hip-Hop has already been feminized. Once we started caring more about a rappers swag than their lyrics shit hit the fan. You got fans dick riding their favorite artists, calling rappers gods and praising them like they are, and bragging about another man's money and cars like you his side bitch. Today's hip-hop fans are no different than then Brittany Spears fans from back in the day.

    When I was in the movie theatre watching Ice Cube's 'Friday' movie, dudes were laughing the hardest at the homo thug character Damon (Terry Crews) while he was watching Tupac videos and shit. Was Ice Cube "promoting" gay culture, too? Nah, he was just talking about some real shit that happens when these so-called tough guys go to prison and come out all zesty and shit. If Chozen is funny then I'll watch it... if it is wack then I won't. People don't understand comedy and satire anymore.

    I love Archer but I have a pretty good feeling this show is gonna flop HARD like Unsupervised. Given the premise I just don't see them having enough material to tell a clever engaging story. It's gonna be nothing but a bunch of jabs mocking Hip-Hop/Rap culture & a bunch of gay innuendos. There just wrapped up the whole show in nutshell, just wait and see.

  • Kane

    You need more people Meth. Watching the public opinions sway in the hip-hop comment sections is hilarious. The same ones who were crying foul , soon as Meth start barking, are like "im sure it will be funny. download for sure!" hahaha. that shit looks about as far from funny as can be and, judging by the picture above, Meth looks like the tired, bloated, old, high, broke and bitter rapper willing to do whatever the fuckin nerd next to him tells him to to extend his career a few more months and stay relevant, integrity be damned There's an interview where Redman was saying he couldnt fit in that Hollywood shit. Mef would do anything to be down. I wish I could go back to the 90s to slap all these rappers talking about keeping it real, calling out sellout rappers, knowing they were gonna sell out so massively, cuz they gotta eat. disgusting. So Meth, one of favs ever, is basically saying he did it as a favor, backtracking from a product basically making a mockery of what he built. Rappers are or sale on clearance
