Wu-Tang's own Method Man recently spoke about the comparisons between Tyler, The Creator's Odd Future group and his own WU. After talking about the comparisons, Method Man said he would like to work with the Odd Future member.
“Right now I want to get that kid from Odd Future, Tyler, The Creator—I just want to hear some of the shit he got. He’s in that vein that I like as far as beats go,” he said, dismissing comparisons between OF and Wu-Tang Clan. “I don’t see any similarities, as far as the movement, maybe. But I don’t see any similarities because some of the shit they talk about. The shit we use to talk about was 5% Nation of Islam, Gods and Earth…you know, 'block shit.' Let them do them and I enjoy them. I’m not going to lie. And yes I do know more than just one song that they’ve done. Some of these people on Youtube and shit, they’re fucking incredible with their comments."
While he wants to work with Tyler, The Creator, Method Man also spoke about how previous attempts to work with Just Blaze and Timbland didn't go so smoothly.
"We’ve tried. I've tried [Just Blaze] a few times and it just didn’t work out. Timbaland on the other hand, he would send you a skeleton beat and I can’t rock to a skeleton beat. I need an actual beat because when I write, I write to the music, so that didn’t work out."
