To be clear, there will never be a day where the hip-hop community doesn’t welcome a new album from Method Man. The most personable member of the Wu-Tang Clan has always been a lyrical monster, so fans are glad to ingest another LP of rap excellence at any moment. The New York veteran came through this week with Meth Lab 2: The Lithium. Sticking to his 90’s roots, where albums ran for 20 plus tracks, Method Man delivers a project that runs for 22 tracks.
Meth Lab 2: The Lithium walks the line between nostalgic 90’s vibes and new-age instrumentals and deliveries. Adapting is an important part of staying relevant, and Method Man accomplishes that without losing himself or abandoning his New York origins. The album features guest appearances from Raekwon, Snoop Dogg, Redman, Noreaga, Sheek Louch, Cappadonna, Masta Killah, Hanz On, Streetlife, Joe Young, Hue Hef, Pretty Blanco, and more. Stream Meth Lab 2: The Lithium on Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal now.
