Method Man is joining the back-to-school hustle this fall, as part of a plea deal from his DUI charges. After being arrested for marijuana, the Wu-Tang vet didn’t want to spend his valuable time in prison so he copped a plea deal. Meth, whose career has been largely synonymous with huffin’ and puffin’, will now work with prosecutors on a city-wide tour of high schools to warn kids about the dangers of drug abuse.
Mef Man’s attorney boasted that his client is “thrilled to do it,” adding that he “never been in trouble before. He’s not a stereotypical rapper.”
The 36-year old rapper was arrested in May after police found marijuana inside his SUV. He was consequently charged with DUI and drug possession, but prosecutors reduced the drug charges to disorderly conduct as part of the plea deal.
