Method Man Still Signed To Def Jam

Despite the rumors abound, Method Man is an artist still signed to a major label, according to the publicity department at Def Jam Records.

“Method man is still a part of the Def Jam family and he is currently on tour supporting his newest release, 4:21…The Day After,” said publicist Jana Fleishman in a statement.

In the past, the rapper had some expressed discontent with the label, but had not requested to be dropped.

4:21…The Day After, while critically acclaimed by fans, gave the rapper his lowest debut with 62,000 units sold.

“I’ve seeing a lot of weird s**t going on up here since the transition. [Back in the ‘90s,] the procedure was way different. It was like I could just walk up in [chairman Lyor Cohen’s] office and say, ‘What’s good?’ So it’s not like that anymore,” Meth said in a recent interview with AllHipHop.com.
