METHOD MAN FINDS IT SUSPECT NEW RAPPERS HAVE SO MUCH WEALTH: 'WHERE THEY GETTIN' THIS MONEY!?'


As a longtime member of the legendary Wu-Tang Clan, Method Man has reveled in the kind of success most artists only dream of - millions of albums sold, fruitful acting roles, countless worldwide tours and the subsequent wealth that comes with it.

But these days, the younger generation of rappers seem to have a bottomless pit of cash that affords them private jets, elaborate diamond chains, giant homes, lavish vacations and the most expensive cars money can buy.

On Wednesday (March 23), a clip of an interview Method Man did with battle rapper Math Hoffa started making the rounds in which the Staten Island-bred legend questions how the new rappers are pulling in so much bread.

"We're in the era now where these kids, they got more money than, son .... I couldn't imagine," he says around the 3:45-minute mark. "I still ain't takin' private jets and I think I earned that! Where they gettin' this money? I wanna know. Like they got a deal or some shit?

"No fucking way that they flyin' private - like that money long as fuck because we talking at least a minimum of 30 grand. That's round trip. Where are they getting this money from? Can somebody tell me? I wanna know where they're getting this money from. I need that hustle."

When Hoffa says they are probably just renting the private jets, Meth replies, "I didn't say they buyin' em. They payin' to fly the private jet but I'm saying they doing it all the time. N-gga, I used to complain having to save half my fuckin' - when I worked at the Statue - half my check for car fare. $1.75. We're talkin' at least 30 to 50 grand a trip. Where are they gettin' this fucking money from and still pay a mortgage? Migos probably get a 100 grand a piece or something like that."

Hoffa then points out there are several different revenues for making money these days, including streams, shows and features.

But Meth still can't wrap his head around it and continues, "Where is this shit coming from? You can't see it. Nobody really listen to your music like that and shit. Where'd you get this fuckin' money? I just want to know. It boggles my muthafuckin' mind. Every penny that I got, I know where it came from. I know exactly what the process was to go through to get that and shit like that and I still don't live like no muthafuckin' Rockefeller not saying I can't, but I still don't. Where do you get these resources my n-gga?"

As Method Man insinuated, he's comfortable but isn't dropping $200,000 on a Maybach to give as a wedding gift like Travis Scott or spending millions on a forehead piercing à la Lil Uzi Vert.

'STREETS STILL WATCHING': JAY-Z & KANYE WEST'S 'N-GGAS IN PARIS' INCHES CLOSE TO DIAMOND STATUS


JAY-Z and Kanye West may not be the best of friends at the moment, but their art is certainly standing the test of time.

On Wednesday (March 23), Chart Data confirmed the pair's 2011 Watch The Throne hit "N-ggas In Paris" has officially been certified 8x platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America - just two million away from diamond status.

The elite diamond club so far only houses 45 songs in RIAA's history, and "N-ggas In Paris" joins Roddy Ricch's "The Box" in the short list of recent songs that are nearing entry. Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" became the most recent song to receive the distinction just earlier this month, making her the first female rapper to have a diamond-certified song. (Lauryn Hill also recently received a diamond certification, but with her 1998 album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.)

Quite a few Hip Hop artists appear via the other 44 songs in the diamond club as well. Ludacris makes the list by way of Justin Bieber's "Baby", Eminem appears three times with "Not Afraid," "Lose Yourself" and the Rihanna-assisted "Love The Way You Lie," Fetty Wap with "Trap Queen," Travis Scott and Drake with "Sicko Mode" and Drake again with "God's Plan," Juicy J by way of Katy Perry's "Dark Horse," Lil Nas X with "Old Town Road," Pharrell and T.I. by way of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" and Pharrell again with "Happy," Quavo by way of Post Malone's "Congratulations," Macklemore with "Thrift Shop" and Wiz Khalifa appears with his 2014 smash hit, "See You Again."

Do your part in the push to get "N-ggas In Paris" to diamond status by watching Hov and Ye perform it 11 times in a row during their Watch the Throne Tour stop in Paris in 2012 below.

DR. DRE CANCELED HIS VERZUZ CHRONIC SMOKE OVER TEDDY RILEY & BABYFACE SOUND FIASCO


When Timbaland and Swizz Beatz were first getting Verzuz off the ground early last year as a way to combat the quarantine blues, they ran into a few bumps. In particular, the Teddy Riley and Babyface showdown in April 2020 was an epic failure with numerous sound quality issues and sometimes, no sound at all.

Following a well-deserved rematch and several more successful events, the duo started taking Verzuz to new heights with a deal with Apple Music and, more recently, a partnership with the Triller Network.- ADVERTISEMENT --about:blank
Needless to say, the sound quality during subsequent Verzuz events has vastly improved, but the Teddy and Babyface debacle still cost Timbo and Swizz one of the biggest Hip Hop artists in the world. During a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, DJ Envy asked Swizz if there were any artists who fell through the cracks and Swizz replied without hesitation - Dr. Dre.

"When Dr. Dre wasn't feeling the sound from Teddy Riley and Babyface, that hurt our heart," he says around the 14:30-minute mark. "I was like, 'Oh my god.' If you go back, Dr. Dre was at the Teddy Riley one. He came at the end, but he was supposed to come at the end and announce he was doing Verzuz that night."

Although Swizz wouldn't reveal who Dre was going to battle, he did say the celebrated producer was planning on confirming his involvement.

"He got on the phone and was like, 'Man, I can't be a part of nothing that look like or sound like that. My legacy is quality. My legacy is this, that,'" he explains. "I was like, 'Ohhhh we just lost Dre over that. That one felt pretty crazy but since then, the energy has been really good."
