Mr. Mef Not Bingin' This One

On Kevin Hart's podcast, Method Man explained his reasoning for having not watched a single episode of the Hulu series Wu-Tang: An American Saga

This may be one show that Mr. Mef will not binge-watching anytime soon.

When Method Man appeared on Kevin Hart's Golden Minds podcast, the former Wu-Tang member delved into what was stopping him from checking out the Hulu show based on him and the iconic rap-group.

"So to see this come to fruition on screen, it was a no-brainer for me knowing how RZA works. In the beginning, it was like, ‘Wow, they’re taking a lot of liberties here with the story.’ In hindsight, knowing how some of these things work, and embellishments and sometimes dudes still be having open cases and shit so I could understand," Method explained.

Continuing: "I haven’t watched an episode, personally, but I get the scripts ahead of time. Everything ain’t for everybody, that’s all I could say...I did not want to mess with their process. These people get paid to do these things — I mean you’re talking about Hulu and Imagine. Imagine, Brian Grazer. Sometimes you gotta step back and keep your opinions to yourself."

Celebrity artists openly declaring themselves content with their stories being altered in the name of creative liberties feels to be somewhat of a rarity, which is not unreasonable given the effects films and shows can have on people's perceptions.

If Method has not been insulted so far with the direction taken in the Wu-Tang series, then perhaps the show could serve as one of the few examples of a biopic-style project telling a story well while actually keeping the minds of the people who's story is being told at ease.
