Method Man has a respectable resume when it comes to Hip Hop and even though the emcee has been on somewhat of a hiatus musically, he’s still very much respected for his lyrical abilities. The Wu-Tang member has always been one to speak his mind whenever he feels it’s necessary, and in his recent interview with XXL Magazine, he made his feelings on the media and Chris Brown very clear.
The rapper feels like Chris gets unfairly targeted by the media ever since he assaulted Rihanna in 2009 and he even feels Chris’ recent alleged assault of a man outside of a hotel in DC wasn’t a big deal. He also claims he would have punched the man too had he been in the same situation. He says:
“If you were in that same situation, how would you have handled it? Maybe you wouldn’t have handled it in the same way Chris did, but you would have been just as angry. Don’t f*ckin’ act like he’s some kind of animal and sh*t. That’s human nature. He got angry. He just took it a little bit further. But I know, I’m going off topic and sh*t. You just gotta understand, I’ve been doing this sh*t for a long time, and in the past few years, I’ve seen this change with the media, and it’s ugly as hell. I don’t believe in kissing an artist’s a*s. I believe in going right for the story, but when you’re trying to make a f*ckin’ story? How tacky is that? How tactless? And that’s what it feels like now.
“If he was a regular dude, and dude photobombed him like that, jumped up in his photo, it’s like, ‘What are you doing, mothaf*cker? I’m taking a picture here.’ I woulda whooped his a*s, too. But based off the fact that it’s Chris Brown, they’re making a big deal about it. I feel bad for the dude. And the bloggers, all these other sideline people with their opinions aren’t making it any better.”
I love me some Method Man but I completely disagree. Chris makes himself look like an animal.
Come on now…Chris has to take some responsibility.
I admit the media is hard on Chris, but they are hard on everyone! Yet he is the only one that keeps getting in trouble besides Lindsey Lohan! At some point he has to be real with himself and admit he brings a lot of his problems on himself.
Method Man needs to have a whole stadium of seats. Chris is a grown man and has to learn how to stay out of trouble.
It’s this kind of attitude that has held Chris back from getting his life together. That victim attitude is why he will never grow up. I thought Method Man was smarter than this.
Dumbest thing I’ve heard all day.
I do agree that the media has gotten a lot worse, but Chris is not innocent. A lot of the problems he has he could have avoided.
The media can’t make Chris look any way unless he helps them.
I just lost a lot of respect for Method Man.
Like someone said on here a while ago, Chris gives the media rope to hang him with. All he had to do after the Rihanna was shut up and sing and dance. He didn’t do that so that’s why he’s where he is today.
Smh. Really Meth?
