Rapper/actor Method Man was the #1 trending topic on Twitter this morning, MTO News has learned. And it’s all because of his semi-nude scene from the latest episode of Power: Book 2.
In the new episode, Method Man is on camera wearing only his underwear and the ladies are swooning over his “imprint.”
Here are some of the responses:
Recently, the G-Unit leader and Wu-Tang Clan member suited up for a candid discussion about the upcoming show for XXL’s Hip-Hop Moments of Clarity podcast, where guests open up about their hip-hop happenings and current events. On the latest installment, the two veteran rappers speak on their lives before the fame and their roles in Power Book II: Ghost with hosts XXL’s Editor-In-Chief Vanessa Satten, veteran hip-hop journalist Shaheem Reid and hip-hop entrepreneur Rahman Dukes.
Fif, who serves as the show’s executive producer along with series creator and showrunner Courtney A. Kemp, kicks the chat off by speaking on Meth’s star power early on in his career as part of Wu-Tang Clan, one of the reasons why Fif wanted him to be part of the new series. “See, I got Meth. I had to work to get him,” 50 Cent shares. “Man, he ain’t gon’ tell you how I was begging him to do this.”
In Power Book II: Ghost, Method Man plays Davis MacLean, a fame-hungry defense lawyer who Tariq St. Patrick (played by Michael Rainey Jr.) pays to help get his mother Tasha out of jail for the murder Tariq committed. To further show Meth’s influence on 50 , Fif even recites Meth’s verse from his 1994 hit song “Bring the Pain” to emphasis his point as he discusses how the Staten Island rapper was a striking force. “The difference with Mary [J. Blige, who plays Monet Stewart Tejada on the show] and Meth is that these are my stars,” Fif says before breaking into Meth’s song. “People who are stars when I’m just in the neighborhood looking at the TV. Like I said, it’s a different thing when you’re on the bus saying, ‘I came to bring the pain, it’s hardcore from the brain…'”
