It’s been nearly 25 years since Method Man and The Wu-Tang Clan burst on the scene with their debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers of Death. Since then Meth has seen his career go in many different directions including a highly successful career, a duo with legendary emcee Redman, as well as a film and television career that any thespian would be proud of. Throughout this lengthy storied career, there is one thing that hasn’t changed, Method Man is still a lyrical beast.
It’s no secret that the Staten Island rapper is no longer a popular as he once as far as mainstream success goes, but his pen is still as sharp as ever. Over the past few years, Meth has dropped a slew of releases with Hanz On and his Hanz On Imprint. The newest release will be, The Meth Lab II: The Litihium. The album, just like the last, will serve as a collaborative album to help establish some of the newer artists coming out of Staten Island. The LP was put together by Hanz On and Method Man himself.
The first single off of the project is a Method Man solo cut titled, ‘Grand Prix’ which was produced by legendary producer Dame Grease. The track features a very hypnotic beat that captures the vintage sound that made Wu-Tang famous while employing a drum pattern that fits perfectly in today’s music landscape. The hook states, “I go Ricky Bobby for the bag, that’s a guarantee”, proving even further that Method’s hustle hasn’t slowed down one bit.
With the second installment of the Meth Lab coming very soon this track does a lot to further the excitement. Listen to Method Man’s new single, ‘Grand Prix’ off of, The Meth Lab II: The Lithium, via Spotify below:
