It’s been 21 years since Method Man came on the scene as a solo artist, making another career path for himself separate from his Wu-Tang Clan ties. The Staten Island MC dropped his Tical debut album over two decades ago this past weekend, which was released through Def Jam Records. The project¬†saw majority of its production from his fellow Wu member, RZA, and reached a peak spot of no. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart at the time. The title,¬†Tical, is based on a blunt that is laced with an adulterant or another psychoactive substance.

Many hip hop heads over the years have argued the project to be a classic hip hop album, seeing singles such as “Bring The Pain,” as well as “I’ll Be There For You/You’re All I Need To Get By. The album also included the “Meth vs. Chef” record, which shows the talents of both Meth and Raekwon, who go head-to-head with their bars. The project was the further proving of Method Man’s talents to the rap community, showing the culture that he could carry out a solo project as a classic.
