Method Man Plans Joint Album With Raekwon, Ghostface
Method Man is looking to hook up with a few of his fellow Wu-Tang Clan members for a collaborative album. The M-E-T-H-O-D man is plotting a collaborative album with Raekwon and Ghostface Killah, which, according to Meth, is easier than inking a new deal for the entire clan.
“I don’t want to say it’s written in stone, but it’s in discussion,” Meth said in an interview. “I want some feedback from the fans to see how they would take that. RZA produced tracks, some other outside producers, of course, and we [are going to] have Wu-Tang members on the album, but it’ll be a Rae, Ghost and Meth album.”
The Staten Island, NY, native went on to say that he is more at ease with his artistry at this stage in his career. “This is the most comfortable I’ve been in my whole career because I don’t have all those obligations that I’ve had before,” he said. “Doing the Wu-Tang, then the Wu-Tang solo projects, then my project, then me and Redman. Right now, I can do it at my own leisure. Honestly, I don’t want to make an album by myself, but it’s something that’s required, and the fans want that, so I’m [going to] do that. But I like doing shows with brothers instead of just doing them by myself…I like to have a crowd around and have that input to make the project better.”
Earlier this year, Meth and Red released ‘Blackout 2,’ the duos first joint project in nine years. The album debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard charts, selling 57,000 units in its first week.
