Whew! It’s no secret that Method Man has been one of the best in the world for over 25 years——and now, due to the latest digital cover story from ‘Essence,’ we get to bask in all of his lovely melanin just in time for Black History Month!
Despite being the man crush of many since the mid-90s, Method Man addresses his aversion to being a sex symbol in the interview. “I’m not sure what you’re talking about.” For my own mental well-being, I go to the gym.
I’m not doing it to be a sex symbol or a pinup on someone’s wall. It’s something I do for myself. People enjoy being noticed. I’m just like everyone else. But, at the end of the day, don’t take me lightly.”
He also discussed his decision to switch from being one of hip hop’s most prominent personalities to a career in Hollywood, where he has appeared in a number of TV and film roles. “In hip-hop, there was a change of guard.
That was fine with me. I needed to grow with the company, and if that meant acting, so be it. He answered, “I was going to put all my eggs in one basket.” Every week, Method Man may be seen as a formidable attorney in Starz’s blockbuster series “Power Book II: Ghost.”
Method Man will always be one of our ultimate crushes, whether he’s entertaining his millions of fans on TV and in movies, recording music, or sharing frequent exercise videos on social media that ladies all over the world save for safekeeping.
