Method Man has provided an update on his upcoming solo album Crystal Meth, which he has discussed as far back as 2008. During an interview with Montreality, he says he hasn’t yet begun recording the project but that he’s “going at my own pace” and needs “to get my ass off the couch.”
“I’ma start work soon. I can’t put a number on it. I’m doing it at my own pace, which is slow as shit,” he said. “I need to get my ass off the couch. I been on that couch, heavy. I write a verse now and then because I don’t know if there’s any real listeners… You’ve gotta have a real listener in order to appreciate what you’re doing. I don’t want someone to say ‘I like the beat.’ I hate that shit. Or, ‘I like the hook.’ There’s so much more to it than that. I hate that and the motherfuckers who run up on me every day thinking that I’m just a pothead or some shit. There’s so many more levels to my character than just smoking fucking weed. On that note, pass the blunt son.”
As for a Wu-Tang Clan reunion album, Tical echoed recent statements from Masta Killa that it has potential to take shape. Though he didn’t speak at length on the LP, he said that he spoke with RZA about the project and that it will most likely happen. “I spoke to RZA and shit. It’ll probably happen. It’ll probably happen,” he explained.
