The Panty Raider had won a Grammy, scored Platinum albums both by himself and with Redman, and enjoyed the distinction of having made songs with both Tupac & Biggie before their deaths, but at some point, hip-hop fans had unfairly written him off.
He credits Rapping & Smoking weed with friends for his continued success. He has had a solid set of role models his entire life. He is one of the hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan, formed in the New York City borough of Staten Island in 1992.
The Wu-Tang Clan’s most smoked out member has been putting out hits and transcending cultural boundaries since Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the debut studio album, released on november 9, 1993, by Loud Records.
The Panty Raider is happy to admit that his stoner tendencies directly paved the way for his fame and fortune. He has never shied away from his Love For #Ganja and the kind bud’s instrumental place in his success. He said:
I could have went in any direction that life took me, but I chose to hang around guys that liked to rap and smoke marijuana. But, you know, it’s gotten me to where I am now. So I guess I was lucky.

He Rapped About**Weed. More than almost any other musical stoners, the **Wu-Tang Clan managed to turn The Idea Of Blazing into some sort of expression of ritual discipline, a self-fortifying, secret knowledge-imparting religious rite, and Method Man always sounded like the most enthusiastic disciple.
