Review: Method Man- Lifestyles

With the countdown on until the release of his 5th studio album ‘The Meth Lab’, Wu Tang Clan legend Method Man has given another taster in the form of a new release. Lifestyles sees Method Man getting the whole family into the studio with his nephews Cardi, Eazy Get Right and Freaky Marciano coming together on the track.

Diversifying from the punchy intro of the album’s previously released title track Lifestyles takes on a rolling, relaxed vibe as the artists reflect on their lifestyles, aspirations and challenges. Music has clearly run in the family and there is something of Method Man’s rolling flow in each verse although the three guests all demonstrate their own unique spin and delivery.

In addition to the Breaking Bad style title track The Meth Lab, not to mention animated trailer, a few more tasters of the album include Straight Gutta and Purple Tape which see collaborations with Wu Tang associates and members Hanz On, Streetlife, Raekwon and Inspectah Deck. Like Dre’s Compton The Meth Lab offers a diverse cast with some of hip hop’s biggest names as well as rising underground stars coming together. This time the setting is the East Coast which is reppped from the very start on the album’s intro- “Staten Island stand up”. 

The Meth Lab will drop 21st August.
