Method Man Delivers Gritty Rhymes in ‘If Time Is Money’ and Hood Go Bang’ Videos [WATCH]
The Wu-Tang saga continues -- this time with Method Man who is featured in not one, but two music videos for "If Time Is Money (Fly Navigation)" and "Hood Go Bang." Both songs appear on the group’s stellar album, Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues.
While the album featured most of the Wu members, it’s Method Man who really shines on a number of tracks on the LP. The video above shows Meth in his element as he spits gritty bars through the streets of Shaolin (aka Staten Island, N.Y.). Throughout the video we see the veteran Wu rhymer flanked by residents of the Berry Homes projects in Staten Island. Even fellow Wu member Raekwon makes a cameo appearance in the visual.
Longtime Wu-Tang producer DJ Allah Mathematics produced the entire Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues project. In an interview with The Boombox, Mathematics said that it was vision to bring the old Wu-Tang Clan sound back on the album.
"As far as Wu-Tang - it’s embedded in me. It’s that raw hip-hop that I was raised on, that I grew up on. That I live and still live to this day," he said. "Getting it out was the big thing. I wanted my brothers to be excited for it, too. I was able to do that. It brought the best out of them."
"Everybody sounds sharp - from Meth, to RZA, to Rae, to Redman - I kept it really in-house," he continued. "There’s not a lot of outside features. Those that are outside - they’re family anyway: Red, Sean Price [and] Chris Rivers."
