    Default Method Man: Hip-hop was best in 90s

    After being in the industry for 15 years, Method Man isn't too pleased with the music scene today.

    The former Wu-Tang Clan rapper, who makes a guest appearance in 1994-set comedy-drama The Wackness, says the best time for hip-hop and rap were in the early 90s.

    "The music was way more grounded than it is today. Today, you don't feel the movement. Back then, you felt the movement," he recalled to reporters in New York.

    He added: "I mean, the whole hip-hop movement. Like when Wu-Tang Clan came in, it was like regardless of where we went, people knew who we were. Or if we were in a new city, there was one person who knew who we was, and that would spread to ten more people, and so on and so forth, up until it was, 'Oh, you ain't up on that Wu-Tang stuff? Oh you ain't down homie!'

    "Same thing with Cash Money, No Limit, Death Row - it goes on and on, all these movements. You don't have that any more."

    I agree, the 90's was the peak of hip hop....

    The music today can't compare to how it was in the 90's but itís a good and a bad thing because we have different and new artist that are just as great as the artist from the 90's.
    Everybody is trying to eat and trying to do what they gotta do to make a hit. I know was bumping that soulja boy when it came out because of the beat damn sure not because he said superman that hoe and Iím pretty sure everybody know the dance. Music is like life it changes, not everybody like changes but itís because its music you can buy it and listen to it whenever.

    There are some artists out there who are trying to keep the spirit of the music from the 90's alive but with a flare of the music today. So the only thing I can really say is keep hope alive with music hopefully it can get better

    Great point. I guess it's like when someones parents start talking about music from the 70's and before and how much better it was. I'm just glad I'm not limited to what's current and can still bump a lot of stuff from the 90s, or whatever time period.
