In the mid-90’s, if you told me that I would one day be sitting on a couch with Method Man talking about Toronto, Mary J. Blige and Acting, I would call you crazy. We’re talking about “Tical”, “Johnny Blaze”, “Iron Lung”; One of the major pieces of the Wu-Tang Clan. An artist that is raw, witty, entertaining and brutally honest. His contributions to Hip Hop, which include appearances on classic albums like “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)”, “Only Built For Cuban Linx” and “Ready To Die” cannot be questioned. Being a part of a super group is an accomplishment in itself, but being one of the standouts is really something special. Over the past 18 years, Clifford “Method Man” Smith has done a little bit of everything, from music to TV (CSI, Law & Order, The Wire, Oz etc.) to movies. With almost 2 decades in the game, he continues to record, tour, and act but shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
On Thursday, March 31st 2011 Wu-Tang Clan’s own Method Man made his return to Toronto and rocked a packed house at Sound Academy. Performing classic material like “Method Man”, “ Ice Cream”, “How High”, “Da Rockwilder”, “Say” and a special tribute to ODB.
The media team from TotemResolve.com (Big Philly, RJ Building Bridges, Cusi Perspective, Nicholas Boss & Howeslyfe) was on-hand to speak with Meth and find out his favorite thing about Toronto, how the “All I Need” remix (with Mary J. Blige) came about and his thoughts on acting.
Special thanks to Lights Out Entertainment, Sound Academy and Method Man for taking the time to chat with us.
PS. Method Man’s Birthday is NOT April 1st! Rza, I promise I will get you back for fooling us all!
