On his upcoming album, 4:21, The Day After, Method Man finds out what happened when he put down the blunt and picked up a pen with a clear head. “The national weed smoking day is 4/20, so I named my album 4:21, The Day After,” Meth said in a statement. “Because after that day, you have this moment of clarity when you’re not high and you see things clearly…”You feel like you’re not in on the joke, and everyone’s laughing at you. I felt like no one was taking me seriously. I got real angry and I just starting writing.” Out of that moment of clarity came an album full of introspective lyrics, including the first single, “Say,” which features Lauryn Hill and finds the rapper addressing critics and fickle fans for disrespecting him. Production on 4:21 comes courtesy of RZA, Scott Storch, Havoc, K1, and Eric Sermon.
