Rappers such as Method Man and Snoop Dogg helped to pave the way for the “weed rap” sub-genre of hip hop. Both artists have been able to cross over, while still remaining true to the weed. Meth, himself, starred in the How High movie with Redman, which is about marijuana.
Method Man has almost become synonymous with marijuana smoking. Despite this, he is looking to change his image. Not helping matters is Method Man being a part of the Smoker’s Club tour with Curren$y and Big K.R.I.T. Method Man is leaving the weed alone, happy to pass the torch to Wiz Khalifa.
The reason Method Man is giving up marijuana is because of his children. During his interview with VIBE, Method Man said he did not want people to automatically think of weed when they thought of him. Method Man said there is much more to him than that, but he is not entirely leaving the culture, he is simply leaving the forefront. People always assume Method Man is high, when he is not, so he is making a change.
