One of the Wu-Tang Clan's many legends, Method Man, isn't too caught up with the current rap sphere, and those are his words. Moreover, during the 2023 Grammys, he said that he doesn't stay too in tune with what's going on today. However, he did take the chance to shout out GloRilla, who Mef said is in heavy rotation in his household. Still, it seems like he might have eaten those words on not keeping up in a new interview on Gold Minds with Kevin Hart. During that conversation, Hart asked him who he's listening to these days. In his answer, the New York MC shouted out fellow spitters from the state, saying that Griselda reminds him a lot of the Wu back in the day.
"I give everybody a chance, really, you know?" Method Man began his breakdown. "I keep my horizons real broad. People that stand out for me... Of course, the Griselda movement. Those dudes remind me so much of us back in the day. This kid Rome Streetz, Shootah, Mickey Diamond. If y'all ain't up on Mickey, man, love Mickey. But my guy, oh... what's my guy's name? Oh, Stove God Cooks. *whistles* And even some of the newer cats. The obvious, of course, you know, Kendrick Lamar- I love ScHoolboy Q. He one of ours, man, like, that's Mef all day right there."
Method Man Is Reminded Of The Good Ol' Wu-Tang Days Through Griselda
Speaking of legends alongside the newer guard, Griselda's own Benny The Butcher recently reflected on pivotal advice that Jay-Z gave him. "The thing about Hov, man, he is who he say he is," he told Math Hoffa. "He and Snoop, they remind me of each other. We had a bunch of conversations. He told me things that I didn't want to hear, he told me things that I did want to hear- just all-around game. He was basically just telling me... basically trying to keep Griselda together."
Of course, it's easy to see the artistic parallels between a group like Griselda and one of Wu-Tang Clan's caliber. However, that's not to say that they're merely a reiteration, as they carved out a whole new lane for themselves. With new releases coming pretty often from the camp (as recently as this week), we're sure the accolades will precede any comparisons.
