The Wu Tang clan member sat down for an interview with VIBE to discuss why he longer wants to be known for his weed rhymes.
Speaking to the mag he says his children were a large part of his decision.
“I”don’t want that every time you hear Method Man’s name you associate it with getting high or marijuana because there’s so much more to me than that. I’m not actually distancing myself from my marijuana culture people but it’s not in the forefront anymore. I got kids to raise, man. Plus it was never really that bad. It gets comes to a point where no matter where you go they’re always thinking you’re high. And I’m not always high. I mean right now I’m sober as a priest.”
Despite his claims of wanting dissasociation, Meth is currently on The Smoker’s Club Tour with Curren$y and Big K.R.I.T.
Despite that Meth still says he wants an identity outside of weed unlike Wiz Khalifa and some of his other counterparts that Meth gladly gives props to.
“Wiz is going way out there with it. I applaud that cat big time too because he’s doing it his way and it’s his time now. Let him ride,” says Method Man. “It’s always going to be there whether it’s Wiz or Method Man or Redman, Big K.R.I.T. whoever. It’s always just going to be there. It’s recreational, baby. Do you know how many closeted weed smokers there are? They’re going to be coming out of the closet like gay men. I’m serious. Then we’re going to have these marches like the gay community did.”
