Long-Time Wu-Tang Clan member Method Man recently talked about his plans to start working on a new album he calls "The Crystal Meth," even saying it should feature the attributes of a classic project. Method Man feels like he has to prove his talent, even to himself. "I just want my classic," he said in a recent interview. "People always say, 'You already got a classic first LP,' but not to me. I want my classic LP, the five-mic-er for myself. Not based on The Source's five mics but a five-mic-er to myself. I don't feel like I have to prove myself to anybody. But I feel like I have to prove myself to myself…This is the most comfortable I've been in my whole career, because I don't have all those obligations that I've had before."
Meth continued "You know, doing the Wu-Tang, then the Wu-Tang solo projects, then my project, then me and Redman. Right now, I can do it at my own leisure. Honestly, I don't want to make an album by myself, but it's something that's required, and the fans want that, so I'm gonna do that."
