Rime Magazine #7 : Method Man Cover

Great cover of the Wu-Tang’s Method Man. Mary J Blige looks her sexiest for her Love & Life advertisement. Crooked I speaks about his highly anticipated album, which to date has not come out. Funny section with Red & Meth called Useless Information You Don’t Really Need To Know About Method Man and Redman.

Love this cover, giving some shine to Yukmouth and Tela. Article on the release of the double album from 2pac – Greatest Hits. As I am going through some great articles on DJ Quik and Redman, I realize how good this magazine is, even with all the grammatical errors.
