Method Man Reveals Surprising Reason Why 1999 Hit ‘Da Rockwilder’ Is So Short

*Method Man has revealed the surprising reason why he and Redman’s 1999 hit “Da Rockwilder” is so short. 

The track appeared on the duo’s “Blackout!” album, which went platinum in 2000. 

“It was so short because Red(man) didn’t like the track,” Method Man said, per TheWrap. “Him and Erick Sermon came up with Rockwilder (real name Dana Stinson), and they’re very hard on him when it comes to beats. He didn’t like the track. I loved it, I embraced it, I jumped on it. Red didn’t even have a verse on it for like a week and a half.”

“If you actually listen to it, he kinda rushed through his verse,” he continued.

As it turns out, the track is hip-hop classic.

In related news, the Method Man is set to star in “Power” sequel series, which is set to premiere on Sunday, Sept. 6. The Wu-Tang Clan rapper plays a high-priced defense attorney in the series, co-starring Mary J. Blige. 

The rapper will “portray ambitious and savvy attorney Davis Maclean, who is attracted to the NYC underworld run by Blige’s character, Monet, a very successful woman in Queens who runs her business “with an iron fist,” EW writes. 

“Power Book II: Ghost” picks up shortly after the events of “Power” as Tariq St. Patrick (Michael Rainey Jr.) grapples with his father death and his mother, Tasha (Naturi Naughton), facing charges for the murder her son committed, according to Starz’s official description. 

The Courtney Kemp-created series is the first of several “Power” spinoffs currently in production. 

The series will “continue the journey” of some of the show’s “most controversial characters,” Kemp revealed during the Television Critics Association 2019 summer press tour. 

“This is probably the most exciting thing that’s going to happen to me this year,” Blige added. “I’ve been a fan of ‘Power’ since the very beginning and I want to thank Courtney Kemp and 50 Cent for starting this conversation with me.”
