Method Man Sits Down With Math Hoffa

During a sit down with Math Hoffa, Method Man gave advice to any artist considering signing with a fellow artist.

“I always felt like you can’t sign to somebody who still trying to be an artist,” Method said. “It’s hard. They can’t give you the time or attention that you probably need and deserve unless you are your own machine.”

Who does this?

When listing off rappers that fit the criteria of conversation Hoffa listed off Drake, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, and a few others.

“I mean these are people that I’m pretty sure have a staff,” Meth stated.

Later in the interview, the legendary Wu-Tang member apologized to Destiny’s Child for an unspecified incident that took place at Janet Jackson’s MTV Icon Special in 2001. Method Man went on to share his opinion on ghostwriters in rap. Meth also recalled a time that he almost “snuffed” Joe Budden. Method Man later stated how much he hated being a sex symbol during his solo venture in the late 1990s.

“I fought that ‘All I Need’ shit,” Method Man said of his “I’ll Be There for You/You’re All I Need to Get By” collab with Mary J. Blige. “I didn’t wanna put it out ’cause it was at a point now where, when we were doing these shows [with] Wu-Tang, I would come out and it’d be girls screaming. Now, for me, it’s like, I’m grimy, same-clothes-for-three-days-in-a-row nigga; who wants to go the sex symbol route at this point?!”

Meth continued, “But at that point in time, this is how I viewed it: all the guys that did the sex symbol shit lost their audience, which was the dudes co-signing and shit like that, ’cause dudes, you know, they playing the music. Chicks be like, ‘I don’t wanna hear all that.’ But they get exposed to it through their guys. So for me it was like, ‘N-gga, whatever. I’ma drop this ‘Bring the Pain.”’
