Product Description

Ever since the sultan of shaolin grabbed the spotlight on Wu Tang Clans' 1993 epic enter the Wu Tang (36 Chambers), meth has been in yo face and in yo ears. Whether holding it down with the Wu on the group's 3 subsequent CD's (97's Wu Tang forever, 2000's the W and 2002's Iron Flag), his solo joints - 94's Tical, 98's Tical 2000: Judgement day, blackout 1999's collaboration with partner in crime and rhyme Redman, 2004's Tical 2000: The prequel, guest spots on other folks' hits, "Love at 1st Sight" with longtime collaborator Mary J. Blige, "Still On it" with Ashanti & Paul Wall, and big screen spots on "CSI," "The Wire," and "How High." Method Man has made damn sure that folks not only know who he is but appreciate what he is capable of. Nice on the mike, easy on the eyes, hot on stage, cool on screen, Method Man has become more than Just a rapper but still remained the ultimate rapper in the game. With a lyrical style that is unpredictable, yet instantly recognizable and a persona That runs the gamut from low-key menace to hyped up stoner, meth has brought the pain, and staked his claim, waiting to make his next move. That move is the eagerly anticipated 4:21... The day after. This album takes meth back to 1993 When hip hop was unsaturated and Method Man & RZA were in the studio making magical music.

This is the type of album most artists are trying and hoping to make for their whole career. Every facet of hip hop music is represented well here, meth flexes his lyrical muscle and demonstrates his versitility on solulful concious tracks, grimey tracks, and straight up bangers.

The album is very balaced and I wouldnt hesitate to liken it to Jay-Z's blueprint. "Say" is one of the best hip hop songs to be released in 2-3 years. Any fan of Wu-tang, or Method Man himself in either his Tical or Red & Meth incarnations will be elated with this album. A must buy for any fan of Hip-Hop music.

One of my boys hipped me to this album. Even though it doesn't contain a radio banger like "Bring the Pain" or "You're all I Need" This is Meth's best album from beginning to end. It's tight from beginning to end. This is grown man hip hop, To paraphrase Meth "This ain't your grandbabies music it's hip hop"

5.0 out of 5 stars More Structural Support for Wu Revolution Aug. 29 2006
By The Purchaser - Published on
Format: Audio CD
A lot of people base their reviews on how an album compares to one of its precessors. No matter how much effort he might put into the album, another Tical will never happen. Instead, we need to recognize that although 36 chambers, Tical, Liquid Swords, etc. were some of the best albums of all time... the fact is that artists evolve, as well as their sound. So try to not to compare it to music from over 10 years ago... instead compare it to music now, and the state of hip hop at the moment.

When looked at from that perspective, this is an excellent album. For the most part, I dont think it sounds anything like Tical, though I will admit that it has a gritty style that is slightly reminicent. Rest assured, it is much better than Tical 0.

Most of the tracks are real tight, with excellent production from a variety of people. I especially like the intro, Is It Me, Problem, Fall Out, Dirty Mef, 4:20, The Glide, Say, Konichiwa B****s, Everything, and Presidential MC. To be honest, the other tracks are good too. Cop this album cause it's dope, and it's just another example of how Wu-Tang is having a reawakening. With Masta Killa, Ghostface, Inspectah Deck, and Method Man dropping hot albums so far this year, and the highly-anticipated Raekwon album coming real soon, it's a good year for hip hop.... if you know where to look.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Thought Wu Was Dying..... Jan. 21 2007
By Anuro3 - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This CD definately shows good improvement compared to recent years. After listening to Method Mans previous CD Tical 0 the Prequel I thought it was over. However on this CD I was surprised to find that the majority of the tracks are tight and more than a handful are slammin. Presidential MC is SICK! Thats in a category of Wu music that goes right back to the roots and I thought songs like that could not be made anymore. I was one of those from back in the day when Method Man first came out and was almost speachless listening to him flow sometimes. I would have said he was like the definition of raw underground hip hop at one point. However when judgement day hit the shelves it was all down hill from there. Only shining on other peoples tracks and getting to seem more and more commercial as the years went by. His rhymes never fell off or anything but I cant explain it, he just didnt shine anymore. However I am relived to say that he appears to be making a comeback and this is the most solid effort Ive seen from Meth in years. Stick to RZA production and stay away from R&B hooks and keep it raw! That gritty gritty. Bring back the golden Era of Hip Hop. Hip Hop is NOT Dead!

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice Album...Hope His Future Music Projects Are Equally Or More Impressive...3.5 Stars! Sept. 21 2006
By CrazyWhacko_88 - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I have no idea whether or not this is his best album because "4:21...The Day After", Method Man's 4th studio effort, is the only album I've listened to by the Wu-Tang superstar. What I do know is that Method Man has some serious MC'ing and lyrical skills, as displayed on the stellar lead single "Say", an acoustic guitar-driven rap song where Method Man fires back at haters and critics with some of the dopest lyrics I've heard in a while, PLUS the legendary Lauryn Hill is sampled singing a cover of an anonymous Bob Marley hit.

For what it's worth, "4:21...The Day After" is a good album as a whole -ESPECIALLY when put next to today's radio-friendly Pop-Rap and Hip-Pop-, enlisting help from the likes of Erick Sermon, RZA, Raekwon, Kwame, Megan Rochell & O.D.B. amongst others, but if you compared it to Ghostface's latest effort "Fishscale", it'd most likely be crushed.

Method Man's intentions are displayed early on in the intro. Stoners furiously protest about legalizing marijuana and other drugs, and it's not long before Method Man starts spitting some fire before finishing it off by angrily stating, "How could you ever say that I'm washed up/When I'm the dirtiest thing in sight?" It's not long before Method Man's relentless, celebratory hate-fest kicks into full gear, blasting critics and modern rappers with his grimy flow and uncompromising lyrics to varying degrees of success.

Scott Storch's tired-out piano loops (which sound re-used from Paris Hilton's "Fighting Over Me") don't do much damage to Method Man's lyrical assault on the music industry on "Is It Me". The heavy Hip-Hop beat of the hateful anti-critic/music industry tracks "Somebody Done F***ed Up", the guitar-loop-driven/bass-heavy "Problem", the wicked-as-hell "The Glide" and "Dirty Mef" -a catchy collaboration with O.D.B. where Method Man wisely says, "If you don't stand for nothing/You'll fall for anything") are also worthy of repeated listens.

Thankfully, there are still some other highlights that break further away from the album's critic-bashing firestorm. Method Man seeks for love from a faithful woman on the piano-driven "4 Ever", featuring rising R&B songstress Megan Rochell. There's a nostalgic feeling to Method Man's wordplay on the awesome "Everything" and "Presidential MC", while the dark, eerie vibe of "4:20" -an obvious ode to getting stoned for those of you aware of what the 20th April represents in America- makes it one of the album's best tracks.

Unfortunately, Method Man has your typical amount of album filler. The skits are, in every sense of the word, irrelevant to any of the album's subject matter, but lack any form of relieving humour to be of any real value. Then there's summery grooves put to waste on Method Man's stale, lyrical odes to materialism and such on "Got To Have It" and the bland "Lets Ride", where Ginuwine's smooth vocals do little to uplift the latter track's cheesy come-ons and predictable clichés. "Konichiwa B****es", another hateful ode to today's commercial modern rappers, lacks the fire Method Man presented in his other tracks, leaving this bland slice of filler to rot somewhere in the dust.

While many of these tracks -including rock-inflected, Redman-assisted "Walk On" & the Fat Joe-assisted hate-fest "Ya'Meen"- are consistent in terms of production and lyrical quality, "4:21...The Day After" doesn't seem to have the clarity its title may suggest. Sure, Method Man's finally coming back hard with lots of hard rhymes, but this album's subject matter rarely goes beyond his hatred for critics and haters. Worse, he admits to focusing more on sales with some of his previous records, yet he chooses to hate on individuals who chose to belittle him for the lack of effort he deliberately failed to apply in the first place. In other words, his hatred may stand unjustified, but at the very least we're seeing one of the Wu Tang Clan's biggest stars rise back to his prime form. Lets hope he delivers more high-quality Hip-Hop with any future releases. 3.5 stars!

5 Best Tracks:


"The Glide" (feat. Raekwon, U-God & La the Darkman)

"Presidential MC" (feat. RZA and Raekwon)

"4 Ever" (feat. Megan Rochell)

"4:20" (feat. Streetlife & Carlton Fisk)

Worst Tracks:

"Konichiwa B****es"

"Lets Ride" (feat. Ginuwine)"

"Got To Have It"

5.0 out of 5 stars Shows Why He's One of The Best Nov. 19 2006
By D Bourgie - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Mef's fourth solo album is a masterpiece. after the so so Tical 2000, and the horrible Tical 0, Mef brings back the style that first made us love him. 4:21... The Day After, comes during a tough time in hip hop. Radio only plays very commercial songs now, and they all song the same. Mef brings it back to the early 90's and reflects his life from then to now. And for the haters, just listen to the song Say, which in my opinion, is one of the best hip hop songs ever. Mef brings himself out on this track and tells everything, from not being able to make a album his way to the death of his friend ODB. Dirty makes a guest appearance on the song Dirty Mef, which really sounds like a song from the old 36 chambers days. The production from RZA and Erick Sermon (two of my favorite producers) bring out Mef at his best. Even the song with Redman, Walk On, has an old school to it and Mef and Red pass verses back and forth. Favorites include Is It Me, Problem, Fall Out, Dirty Mef ft. ODB, The Glide ft. Raekwon and LA the Darkman, Say ft. Lauren Hill, Ya'meen ft. Fat Joe and Styles P, Everything ft. Inspectah Deck and Streetlife, Walk On ft. Redman, Presidential MC ft. Raekwon and RZA, and 4 Ever ft. Megan Rochell. Highly Highly Recommended.
