Method Man Returns With the Sly Banger ‘2 Minutes of Your Time’
The Wu-Tang legend unveils a quick-and-dirty jam from the 'The Meth Lab," out August 21 on Tommy Boy
If they gave out an EGOT award for stoner comics, Method Man would be but one Broadway show away from the gold. Having made television (Meth & Red), film (How High), and of course, music (he gets his own track on SPIN’s number-two album of the last 30 years), the 44-year-old rapper has stayed sharp for two decades by remaining so laid-back.
Having only graced his fan base with 2009’s jovial Redman collaboration Blackout! 2 in the recent past, Meth finally drops the long-awaited The Meth Lab this week, a proud throwback to smoky boom-bap and tongue-in-cheek rhymes in his perfectly flowing baritone. You can stream the headlong album standout “2 Minutes of Your Time” below, which “educates” a whole new generation of would-be Wu devotees on such history-making moments as the dearly departed ODB’s famous Grammy drop-in, over greasy guitar funk and Shaft strings.
