Method Man has been on a tear since the release of his new album The Meth Lab earlier this year via Tommy Boy Entertainment. His first two singles for The Meth Lab and Straight Gutta have shown that he hasnt lost a step in his many years on the hip hop playing field. In his many years both as a Wu-Tang member and solo artist he has put together quite a list a of famous friends that appear on The Meth Lab. So far weve seen appearances by Hanz On, Streetlife and Redman, but for his newest single The Purple Tape, he has upped the ante even further by teaming up with fellow Wu-Tang alumni Raekwon and Inspectah Deck!
In 1995 Raekwon released Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, which was a definitive release of the era complete with purple cassette tape packaging. Coupling that with the fact that Method Man named his own son after Raekwon it was inevitable that the two would collaborate on this track. When its all said and done, the collaboration brings together Method Man, both Raekwons, and Inspectah Deck as they glide and slide all over the studio with their crew banging along to the J57-produced record.
