With the release of the critically acclaimed album, The Meth Lab, Method Man has released the official music video for his second single “Straight Gutta.” Redman, Hanz On and Streetlife join Wu-Tang Clan’s breakout member in the gritty music video shot on the streets of Staten Island.

One location featured prominently in the video is the historic Edgewater Hall, which was also seen in Method Man’s music video for “The Meth Lab,” another location used was Staten Island’s 50/50 Skatepark.

“In the Last American Bboy​-directed video, Meth gathers his crew in the spot, where they shine the spotlight on the ferocious raps throughout the song, with a cypher-like feel as they fire off the rhymes. In fact, after all of these years Meth and Red are still proving that they got it with the best of them in the game, and that is never more prevalent than in this video.” – Complex

‘The Meth Lab’ was released August 21st via Hanz On Music/Tommy Boy (Ghostface Killah, Sheek Louch). Recorded in Staten Island and featuring lifelong cohorts Redman, Raekwon, Hanz On, Streetlife, Inspectah Deck, and more, the album is full of Mef’s signature swagger and unrivaled cadence.
