Method Man, Raekwon & Inspectah Deck Salute "The Purple Tape" In Hard-Knocking New Video
Over the summer, Method Man returned with the rugged and raw on his The Meth Lab LP, wrangling some Wu-Tang alum and some Shaolin locals for the stud outing. Amongst those fiery 19 tracks laid a brilliant, generation-bridging salute to Raekwon‘s classic Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, aptly-titled “The Purple Tape.” The track finds not one, but two Raekwons (Mef’s son was adorned with his partner-in-rhyme’s namesake) blessing the mic along with Inspectah Deck.
Today, however, we’re happy to lay our eyes on a new clip for the single, finding the whole fam at what appears to be an in-studio party, decked-out in properly purple attire with young Rae delivering the hook while floating around on a Skywalker (no it’s not a hover board.) And so, we have a true family affair on our hands, both in blood and arms. Peep the hard-knocking new video for Method Man’s “The Purple Tape” down below along with his forthcoming tour dates.
