Method Man Talks Quality Vs. Quantity

Method Man is so proud of his new LP with Redman, he wouldn't care if it debuted at number 1 or number 199.

Both rappers have scored platinum hits with their respective crews (Method Man with Wu-Tang, Redman with the Def Squad), and now the dynamic duo's joint release, "Blackout," has taken a healthy step toward living up to those legacies. The disc sold over 254,000 copies in its first week, landing it at number three on next week's "Billboard" album chart.

Meth and Red put out their LP last week alongside hyped-up new releases from such folks as Creed, Garth Brooks, and Marc Anthony. In Method Man's eyes, however, issues such as sales and competition don't matter when it comes to "Blackout.
