Method MaN “The Meth Lab” Tommy Boy Entertainment

With under a month to the release of Method Man’s new collaborative project, The Meth Lab, the celebrated rapper and pop-culture icon has dropped another hot new joint for fans to enjoy. Teaming up with fellow Wu-Tang Clan members Raekwon and Inspectah Deck, the trio cooked up a gritty, old school street anthem, “The Purple Tape”. The title holds significance to the rappers and Wu-heads, paying homage to Raekwon’s debut solo album, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx N*****, also known as The Purple Tape. Joining Method Man, Raekwon, and Inspectah Deck on the track is Mef’s son, Rae Butta aka Raekwon, who lays down the chorus to the track clarifying he’s “Raekwon, no relation to Chef though but still trend,” and that “Wu-Tang is for the children.” The record, produced by J57, isn’t an attack, but a warning – after three decades these legendary Staten Island emcees are still on top.Head on over to Pitchfork for the exclusive world premiere of “The Purple Tape”
