Wu-Tang Clan's Method Man reveals collab with Havoc is 'pretty much done', upcoming EP in the works
Wu-Tang Clan's Method Man announced that he has teamed up with producer-rapper Havoc, from the Queens hip-hop duo Mobb Deep, on a joint studio album.
Before an interview with Method Man on UPROXX 'The People's Party' podcast, host Talib Kweli described the rapper in an apt introduction. "We're still in lockdown. We're still obeying the social distancing rules, but we're still bringing you that quality, quality, quality content," he opened. "This guest we have on tonight represents the people. He is a man of the people. He is a founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan. He is a legitimate rockstar. He is a legitimate movie star. Whether he is rolling with his Clan brothers or rolling as a solo artist, he has inspired me, he's one of the most influential artists that I have ever heard in my life, one of the only people to go on wax alongside both Biggie and 2Pac," he said.
In the interview, Meth divulged on several topics including his career, his discography, the lack of black history in school education, and even on Dave East's portrayal of him in the TV series 'Wu-Tang: An American Saga'. Watch the full interview below.
At the tail end of the clip, Method Man revealed that he and Havoc have recorded an LP together called ‘Dirty P’, which pays homage to late Wu-Tang rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard and late Mobb Deep MC Prodigy. “Take on Dirty’s name and Prodigy’s name and we going to call it ‘Dirty P’", Method Man said, adding, “That’s pretty much done, we’re trying to think of a single to put out first. Don’t know about that yet.”
Method Man also revealed that he and Rockwilder "are trying to put together an EP of some of my favorite hip-hop joints from back in the day." The upcoming album will follow after Method Man's 2018 album, 'Meth Lab Season 2: The Lithium', which featured appearances from Wu-Tang Clan, Snoop Dogg, N.O.R.E., and more.
Wu-Tang Clan's RZA paid tribute to Bruce Lee last month with his new track 'Be Like Water'. RZA has cited Lee as his inspiration many times. Wu-Tang Clan's debut album ‘Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)’ famously references the 1973 film 'Enter the Dragon', which was Lee's final film before his death. as well as the film 'The 36th Chamber of Shaolin'. “Bruce Lee’s teachings extended beyond physical martial arts. He was full of philosophy and mindfulness,” RZA said in a statement.
