She's expanding her career beyond topping the charts, but Yung Miami has been criticized for her acting. The City Girls star recently appeared in BMF, and while she was excited about the feature, the public used the moment to troll the rapper. There were jokes about her delivery, and one person even said it was funny. To that, Miami told them it wasn't supposed to be. It isn't easy moving from the studio to the small screen, and it's something that other Rap stars have attempted. Few, like Method Man, have developed successful acting careers, so it's fitting that he has advice for Yung Miami as she moves forward.
The Wu-Tang icon has added to his acting résumé since the mid-1990s, and these days, you'll find him on set more often than in the booth. The Power star was recently spotted by TMZ and was asked about the criticism Yung Miami was receiving. “F*ck people. People are mean,” he told the cameraperson. “White noise, white noise." He then dropped off a compliment. "I love the City Girls, they’re dope.”
Method Man Knows The Business
In February 2022, Essence called on Meth for their cover feature. During their interview with the Rap icon, he discussed how the change in Hip Hop pushed him toward exploring new avenues. “The higher-ups, the so-called gatekeepers, didn’t have much use for a 44-year-old rapper,” said Meth. “I guess my background turned some people off. Some people aren’t willing to give you a chance, especially when you’ve already had one and you kind of squandered it.”
“There was a changing of the guard in hip-hop. I was cool with that." This doesn't necessarily mean Method Man is out of the Rap game, but he's nurturing his other creative pursuits. "I had to evolve with the business, and if that meant acting, so be it. I was going to throw all my eggs in one basket.”
Yung Miami Is Jumping Into New Things
Meanwhile, Yung Miami is back in her "S-I-N-G-L-E" City girls mode, or so she said while working on projects outside of Rap. We saw her shine on Caresha Please, her Revolt podcast, where she sat down with her peers. The show was a success and caused several viral hot takes to circulate online, and it's expected that her acting career will flourish. Check out more from Method Man above.
