Method Man appeared on a recent episode of the Drink Champs podcast, recalling the first time he met Tupac. However, the story turned wild after the rap legend revealed he had taken mushrooms before interacting with Tupac, Diddy, Suge Knight and Queen Latifah. 

During the interview, Meth told hosts N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN that he remembered flying to Los Angeles to attend the 1996 Soul Train Awards, where he was nominated for best rap album (Tical) and R&B/soul or rap song of the year (“I’ll Be There for You/You’re All I Need to Get By”) featuring Mary J. Blige, HipHopDX reported.

Later in the night, the 52-year-old said he had taken shrooms at the award show’s after-party at the House of Blues.

“I’m on mushrooms like a muthaf***a,” he said. “It didn’t hit me while I’m in the club ’til I saw Puff. I see Puffy with like six bodyguards — and then it hit me. It was like, ‘Wait a minute.’”

He continued, “Mind you, Puff don’t speak to me. No, he speaks to me, but he never speaks to me like this. Embraces me, ‘Meth, wassup n***a?!’”

“So now it’s like, ‘Oh s**t.’ I’m looking around to see if anyone saw me speak to this muthaf***a,” the Wu-Tang rapper said, reflecting on the infamous East Coast vs. West Coast beef at the time. “I just don’t wanna be on anybody’s f**king radar at this point — the shrooms.”

Meth’s brief interaction with the Bad Boy mogul led him into one of the venue booths until another rap legend spotted him. 

“I’m in my head like crazy, like, ‘Did that just happen?’ ‘Cause Puff’s never that nice to me,” he recalled. “I mean, he’s nice, but never that nice to me. … I’m f**ked up off these shrooms. Now I’m at the peak of shroom high.”

“And I hear, ‘Meth!’ I look and it’s [Queen] Latifah. She was like, ‘What the f**k are you doing up in that corner?! Come here!’ And I snapped out of that s**t. I was good the rest of the night after that! Shoutout to you, Dana, I love you,” Meth added.

Toward the night’s end, Meth recalled meeting Tupac for the first time with Suge Knight by his side. The All Eyez on Me rapper reassured him that he respected the Wu-Tang Clan and had nothing but love for them despite the coastal rivalries. 

“He’s telling me about some incident that happened with RZA in Vegas and if he was there it definitely wouldn’t have happened, blah blah blah,” Meth said, remembering when the group leader had his chain stolen.

“Basically, he was saying if there was anybody we would f**k with on the East Coast, it’d be Wu-Tang. This is letting us know — and anybody that was in the know — that it wasn’t an East Coast-West Coast thing; it was a Bad Boy-Death Row thing.”

Meth said he wasn’t paying too much attention to what Pac was saying because he couldn’t believe he was talking to him.

“He started saying something else, but I’m not really listening because I’m looking at the Death Row piece on his chain,” Meth explained. “This is my first time meeting ‘Pac, so I’m like, ‘Oh s**t, this is f**king Tupac! Look at that f**king chain!’”

“I remember looking at Suge and he got the cigar like this and he’s like [silently mean mugs] … nothing. No expression, just stoic. Cameras is on, n***a! He in Suge mode,” he added.

“So I’m like, ‘Yeah…’ Walk out, [my crew and I] get out front, and no lie, I remember being in the back of Pink Dot in that alley way, and we sat there and we discussing that whole night of how that shit was so fucking weird. … It was definitely the mushrooms.”

Meth also talked about working with The Notorious B.I.G. and Pac, marking him as one of the fewer artists to work with both rappers before they died, per HipHopDX.

“I never got any flak, nobody said shit to me about that shit. … Me and Big were still cool. Big never looked at it in any kind of weird way,” Meth said.
