While Method Man isn't super tuned in to what's hot in hip-hop music right now, he did reveal one artist that's always playing in his household. Moreover, HipHopDX caught up with the Wu-Tang Clan legend while on the red carpet for the 2023 Grammy Awards. In a newly surfaced clip from the publication, Jeremy Hecht asked Mef what new artist he was listening to at the time, and his answer might surprise some fans. Furthermore, he expressed that he doesn't listen to too many new things in hip-hop these days, especially as he became successful in other entertainment areas. However, he gave a big shoutout to Memphis' own GloRilla, who he says is in heavy rotation in his home.
"I don’t really listen to much [of] today’s music," Method Man replied to Hecht's question. "But right now, who’s relevant in my household? Who they playing in my house? Glo." In addition, he revealed that GloRilla apparently didn't know who he was when they met. Still, she remained graceful, respectful, and kind during their interaction, which the Long Island legend appreciated. "That speaks volumes to her character. Love her."
Method Man Shouts Out GloRilla At The Grammys
Of course, the Grammys red carpet also had other rap legends speak on the "Tomorrow 2" star, most notably Grandmaster Flash. HipHopDX actually got his very first reaction to her smash hit "F.N.F.," as the Furious Five legend admitted that his children tried to get him to listen to her. As he heard the song, he bobbed his head along and took note of her blunt, boastful lyrics. "Okay GloRilla! This s**t sounds like fun too,” he said of the track. “She’s talking s**t and she’s having fun which is what Hip Hop should be. Word up! Okay, my kids… They were right."
Meanwhile, all three artists formed part of the grand tribute to hip-hop at the awards ceremony, which celebrated the genre's 50th anniversary. These remarks actually fit quite well within that context, as generations come together to celebrate each other's greatness and importance in the game. After a lot of discussion in the 2010s decade about the old guard against the new, it's great to see them in a more respectful and appreciative space. Regardless, come back to HNHH for the latest news and updates on Method Man and GloRilla.
