Slick Rick On His U.S. Citizenship, New Tour And Possible Drake Collab
Huffington Post - 8 months
This is the latest installment in “Black In The Day,” an occasional HuffPost series about black entertainers taking an introspective look at their careers from back in the day. Hip-hop's “greatest storyteller,” Slick Rick has concluded the final chapter in his over two decade-long legal battle for citizenship and now is ready to get back to music.  After a 23-year-protracted legal battle, in April the British-born MC was sworn in as an American citizen during an official ceremony in New York, making him a duel citizen with the retainment of his U.K. Citizenship. The Grammy-nominated rapper faced years of repeated deportation threats from the United States Department of Homeland Security. Despite his status as a legal resident since 1976, and receiving a pardon in 2008 from then-New York Governor David A. Paterson for his rehabilitation and community contributions, Rick spent four years in a deportation lock up, which prevented him from traveling internationally. To commemora ...

Meet the Weed Genius Designing the World's First Cannabis Ranch
Huffington Post - about 1 year
This article originally appeared on Inverse. By Yasmin Tayag Weed is big business and legal weed will become bigger still. That's why American Cannabis Partners CEO Christian Hageseth thinks the time is right to open up the Colorado Cannabis Ranch, the world's first-ever "weedery." Like a winery, the 50-acre Denver ranch will feature tours, gourmet food, concerts, and, when Centennial State law allows it, tastings. While profit is the major motive here, capitalism isn't Hageseth's sole ideological: He wants to take marijuana out of the alleys and put it in nature, where it belongs. He spoke to Inverse about designing the weedery "cathedral," the parallels between a sativa and sauvignon blanc, and why it's important that Eddie Vedder and U2 play on opening night. You're calling it a "weedery" to draw associations with wineries. How is that mindset shaping the way you're designing the place? We want to be more like Napa Valley and less like South Padre Beach at spri ...

Huffington Post - over 1 year
Get ready, stoners. Your prayers for a sequel to 2001 cult classic "How High," starring Redman and Method Man, have been answered. Redman told XXL that the movie is officially in the works -- and that it could hit theaters as soon as 2017.  "The writers are still writing the script," Redman explained. "Just looking at it time-wise and being realistic about it. By the time we shoot it, get it edited, color corrected, that’s going to be a year or so. So, yeah, about 2017." Fans of the original surely wish the sequel were being released sooner. But look at the bright side: Because "How High" came out 14 years ago, we're already 90 percent through the wait!

Huffington Post - about 3 years

MMLP2: Best-Selling OS Update, Not Sequel
Huffington Post - over 3 years
#Eminem Week is over and it's time to figure out what it all means. Here's the biggest takeaway so far: You can't go home again; especially if you're MTV Europe's Global Icon, YouTube's first-ever Entertainer of the Year, and you learned that your dilapidated former Detroit home, featured on the MMLP2 and Marvel Comic Ironman covers, was further damaged by fire in a tragic turn of events all in the last seven days. On top of that there's the realization that today's savvy audiences are no longer checking solely for Slim Shady and his old shenanigans. That's why Eminem's latest album, MMLP2, is less of a sequel and more of an update to his overall operating system. MMLP2 fills in the gaps between his static and distinct personas, represented by his trilogy of albums that blew up the charts between 1999 and 2002, revealing a dynamic integrated perspective that rehashes old topics and adapts to new realities. What's old? The three Ts - taboos, teases and throwbacks. Part of what makes ...

November 9, 1993: When <i>Marauders</i> Entered The <i>36 Chambers</i>
Huffington Post - over 3 years
November 9, 1993, is an important day in the history of hip-hop. It is the day that two game changing, timeless masterpiece albums were released -- Wu-Tang Clan's flawless debut, Enter The Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers and A Tribe Called Quest's unblemished third LP, Midnight Marauders. Both hip-hop outfits came from two different parts of New York City -- Wu-Tang from Staten Island and Tribe from Queens. The release of these albums came at a pivotal time in the genre, right before the alleged "East Coast Vs. West Coast" feud. These records came just months before Nas, OutKast, Fugees, and Notorious BIG, would release their debuts and start their legacies within the hip-hop community. In the early '90s, the West Coast was on fire thanks to NWA, Dr. Dre's solo debut, Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, Ice-T, and the late Tupac's releases, among others, were stealing the hip-hop spotlight. New York dominated the '80s simply because it was the birthplace of the genre and was the home to the pioneers -- D ...

Enterprising Street Performer Making $60-per-Hour
Fox Business News - over 3 years
Since 2011, street performer "Verbal Ase" has been making a living off of his voice – and only his voice. Ase tells FBN's Stuart Varney that he typically makes more than $60 per hour. "Usually when I'm in the subways – the most I've made in one day is $400," says Ase. When he first got started, Ase says he would perform for upwards of six hours a day, but now he's focused on taking care of his most valuable asset. "I got to protect my voice, so I usually stay out for three or four hours a day," says Ase. His vocal stylings are also earning him gigs in venues just a little glitzier than your average New York City subway car. Ase has opened up for Method Man, Three 6 Mafia and Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, and he says he'll be on the small screen in millions of households this week. "Today I'm going to meet up with Nick Cannon after this for America's Got Talent. We're going to do something in Times Square. I think it's going to air on Wednesday," says Ase.

  • 2006
    Method Man's fourth album, entitled 4:21: The Day After was released in August 2006 with a star lineup of producers featuring Havoc, Erick Sermon, Scott Storch, Allah Mathematics, Mr. Porter, and, most importantly to Meth, RZA.
    More Details Hide Details This time around, a more focused Method Man went back to his hip hop roots and both hip hop fans and the media took notice. He did an interview on the ItsHipHop.Tv. Despite this being one of Meth's strongest solo efforts to date, the album failed to do well commercially due to it having no single or video, which Method Man has held discontent towards his own label for. However, he toured strongly all over the world to promote the album, and appeared onstage with fellow Wu-Tang member Inspectah Deck, as well as New York up and comers Saigon, and Gat Murdah. Meth contributed various reasons for the problems between him and his label, Def Jam. While he puts most of the blame on personal agendas in the Def Jam offices, Meth did take some blame, himself, for giving into his record label.
  • 2005
    In 2005 Method Man also had a cameo in the horror movie Venom, where he played a deputy who shortly into the movie is killed.
    More Details Hide Details He appears in the 2008 movies The Wackness and also, Meet the Spartans. Method Man stars in the episode "Snitch" of Law & Order SVU as the main antagonist. The episode was first broadcast December 4, 2007. Method Man has made an appearance in the Def Jam series of video games. In Fight for NY he voiced Blaze, one of the main characters. In Icon, he voiced Gooch, a major character in the storyline. In Underground, He voiced Meth, one of the major characters. He made a guest appearance in the music video for the 2003 "If I Ain't Got You" by Alicia Keys, where he played the role of her boyfriend. He also appeared in Beanie Sigel's music video "Feel It in the Air", where Method Man played an undercover cop leading an operation against Sigel.
  • 2004
    In 2004, Meth released his third solo album Tical 0: The Prequel, which featured the hit party single "What's Happenin'" with Busta Rhymes.
    More Details Hide Details Hip hop critics voiced their displeasure with the album, many agreeing that Tical felt like generic party rap and featured too many mainstream guests, detracting from his own performances. Regardless, this album sold reasonably well and was certified gold record by the RIAA relatively quickly, but would not see the platinum success of his previous solo releases. There was trouble even before the album's release when Method apparently complained to the press about excessive interference from Def Jam over the album's beats (Meth supposedly desired more input from Wu-Tang leader RZA). On its release, many fans and critics were taken aback by its strong "mainstream" or "commercial" sound, highlighted by the guest appearances of pop-rap stars like Missy Elliott and P. Diddy, two artists that are involved with much different facets of rap music. P. Diddy was one of the executive producers for the album, although Meth later voiced his displeasure with the final product. "On the third LP, it was suggested (by Def Jam) to bring in Harve Pierre and P. Diddy. Who am I to argue? Puff knows how to sell some records. But that wasn't the direction to go in, and I know that."
  • 2000
    His second solo album was Tical 2000: Judgement Day, released in 1998, which was heavily influenced by the apocalypse theories surrounding the forthcoming end of the millennium, and which featured myriad guest appearances from his fellow Wu-Tang MCs.
    More Details Hide Details The album was certified double platinum. Other guest appearances include Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, D'Angelo, Chris Rock, Mobb Deep, Redman, and brief cameos from Russell Simmons, Bishop Don "Magic" Juan, Janet Jackson, and Donald Trump. The album sold better than his first fueled by the party track "Judgment Day" and the D'Angelo collaboration "Break Ups 2 Make Ups", earning Platinum and Gold certifications in the U.S. and Canada respectively. Reviews for the album were mixed and its long runtime and abundance of intermittent comedy skits were widely criticized. Producers on this album included True Master, 4th Disciple and the RZA. Method Man was part of the very successful Hard Knock Life Tour with Jay-Z, Redman, Ja Rule, and DMX. During this tour, Method Man & Redman recorded Blackout!, a light-hearted, bass-heavy, profanity-laced, party record with an EPMD-evoking emphasis on funky beats and the mischievous wit and cool flows and good rhythm of the two MCs. The album reached platinum status quickly, both in the U.S. and Canada, fueled by "Da Rockwilder", "Cereal Killa", "1, 2, 1, 2", "Tear It Off" and "Y.O.U." This album also featured three previously released tracks on which the two collaborated.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1999
    He became engaged to his wife in 1999 and they married in 2001.
    More Details Hide Details He has three children: two sons (born in 1996 and 2001), and one daughter (born in 1997). On May 17, 2007, Method Man was arrested in New York City on marijuana charges. His SUV was pulled over near the Battery Tunnel toll booths for having an expired inspection sticker. An unidentified source said, "It was like something out of Cheech & Chong. He rolls down the window and the smoke would choke a horse." The arresting officer noticed two blunts and a plastic bag containing marijuana in plain view. Upon further inspection more marijuana was found under the driver's seat. Method Man was charged with unlawful possession of marijuana, criminal possession of marijuana, operating a motor vehicle under the influence and driving an uninspected motor vehicle. He reached a plea agreement to perform community service including rapping to young kids about the dangers of drugs.
  • 1996
    He was also featured on Redman's 1996 album Muddy Waters on the track "Do What Ya feel". On June 3, 1997, the Wu-Tang Clan released their Grammy-nominated multiplatinum double CD Wu-Tang Forever, the long-awaited follow up to 36 Chambers.
    More Details Hide Details The album has sold over 8.3 million copies to date worldwide.
    In 1996, Method Man appeared on Tupac Shakur's album All Eyez on Me, on the song "Got My Mind Made Up" alongside his rhyme partner Redman, The Dogg Pound (Daz and Kurupt) and Inspectah Deck, whose verse did not make the released album version (although his nickname "Rebel INS" can be heard as the song fades).
    More Details Hide Details
    In 1996, he won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, for "I'll Be There for You/You're All I Need to Get By", with American R&B singer-songwriter Mary J. Blige.

  • 1971
    Born on April 1, 1971, in Hempstead, Long Island, Smith divided his childhood between his father's Long Island residence and his mother's home in the Park Hill section of Staten Island (colloquially known as Killa Hill).
    More Details Hide Details He has two sisters, Terri and Missy. As Wu-Tang Clan ascended to hip hop stardom, Method Man was always one of the most visible members of the collective. He was one of only two members to get a solo song on the group's debut album Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers and he was the first to release a solo album under the Clan's unusual contract which allowed its members to release albums under any record label. Method Man chose to sign with rap label Def Jam Recordings, although Elektra Records A&R man Dante Ross initially wanted to sign him around the same time Ross signed fellow group member Ol' Dirty Bastard. Method Man's solo debut, Tical (1994), was critically acclaimed and well received, entering the American charts at #4 and eventually selling in excess of one million copies. That album featured the hit single "All I Need", later remixed featuring Mary J. Blige, which won a Grammy ("I'll Be There for You/You're All I Need"). During this time Method Man also became close friends with fellow New York City-based rapper The Notorious B.I.G., and was the only guest rapper featured on his debut album Ready to Die. He was also featured on Spice 1's album AmeriKKKa's Nightmare on the track "Hard 2 Kill".
