Method Man – “2 Minutes Of Your Time”:
Staten Island’s very own Method Man has just dropped another single, “2 Minutes Of Your Time”, from his new album The Meth Lab ahead of its release tomorrow (August 21) via Tommy Boy. The track, as the title may suggest, is a succinct lecture from the veteran rapper and Wu-Tang Clan member where he sets the world to rights.
This single is the only full track off the album where the beat is reserved solely for Meth, giving him ample time to speak his mind on the current state of the Hip Hop industry, spitting such lines as: “rappers don’t really ride, they piggy back / I’d trade ’em all to have Tupac and Biggie back“. Listen to the track below.

Wolf Alice – “You’re A Germ”:
Four piece alternative band Wolf Alice have just released their new music video for “You’re A Germ”.

“We are big fans of horror movies, terrified of them no doubt, but massive fans all the same. We always buy one on the road to watch together on long drives – we have figured out who will die first in the zombie apocalypse that is undoubtedly gonna happen, Joff can do a brilliant Leatherface from The Texas Chain Saw Massacre impression and it was only a matter of time before we made our own”, the band said. Watch the video below.
