Method Man clarifies statements about Summer Jam

TMZ met Method Man while he was in New York promoting the final installment of ‘Power Book II: Ghost’. While chatting with the outlet, the hip hop emcee told the outlet that he doesn’t fault the younger crowd for their reaction to his set with Redman.

“You know what I’m sad about, because I’m not angry with the crowd. If you look at the captions or comments I leave, there are words like ‘thank you’ and ‘I love you’. It’s just a generation gap. I showed grace, but the responses it got, I don’t think that was fair to either one or both. I will never point the finger at the crowd for not liking my music. That’s not even true.”

However, Method added that his comments about the performance were misinterpreted and that he does not regret what he said.

“I went there for Mister Cee and it was New York, so I thought I was in New York, I was in my backyard. Everyone knows who I am. I’m not angry at the crowd, I’m having a moment of self-awareness, that’s all!”

Social media reacts to Meth’s new comments

Roomies have rallied in support of Method’s recent comments in Shade Room comments section. Many social media users praised him for choosing to withdraw from future appearances at the festival.

Instagram user @mr_foh_ wrote, “Some of you need to be like Meth, realize the times and situations are not for you and do your best and move on gracefully.”

While Instagram user @free.samuda wrote: “Hip Hop is the only genre where we do this. Forced OG to leave because they were “too old” while rockers over 60-70 years old still sold out tickets to YOUNG PEOPLE.

Instagram user @_prettynghetto wrote, “Love the way he presented it! Ladies and gentlemen, a REAL MAN.”

Instagram user @callmeboogz then wrote: “It’s the age gap between the people who came to the summer jam, that’s all. The core fans of his generation or him at that time were not the ones to show up. That’s a valid statement. Not hate.”

Instagram user @officialdaddymo wrote, “Phuong Man is still a goat whether you like his music or not. It’s the OG.”

Finally, Instagram user @_ottohaze_ wrote, “As an artist you have to know your core audience, he is fully aware that there is no need to do more than what is there.”

Rapper’s initial response to the Summer Jam audience

Method Man appeared at Summer Jam with Redman at UBS Arena in Long Island, New York City on (June 2).

HipHopDX reports that the STARZ actor initially expressed his views about the audience’s lack of enthusiasm for his performance on X, formerly known as Twitter.

Meth told his social media followers about his decision to part ways with the festival due to what he considered a “generation gap.”

“Not our crowd at all.. thanks again, New York and the entire tri-state (for being at the event) with Pete and Ebro. I love you guys, but never again.. at this point the generation gap is too wide for me.. #nevercomingback”

Despite the hip hop star’s affection for Summer Jam, Meth seemed to still enjoy the Roots outing in early June. He headlined the two-day Philadelphia event with Redman.

The 16th annual festival also featured performances by Nas, Smino, Sexy red, Gunna, Jill Scott, Lil Wayne And André 3000.
