Method Man invests in his nephew’s education by offering him $100 for every semester he gets good grades.
In a TikTok post earlier this week, Meth laid out the challenge to his nephew to inspire him to pursue academic excellence.
“Every semester he gets through without a problem, including this one, from now on, he gets $100,” Meth said in the post. “There are four semesters in a year right? That’s 400. That’s 400. Do it.”

While some applauded Meth’s kind gesture, others believed the “All I Need” rapper could have upped the dollar amount.
“100, I’m a regular nijja and I gave my niece 50 for each A 20 for each B and 5$ ac,” wrote one Twitter user in the comments.
Besides being considered an elite rapper and a solid actor, it is well documented that Meth has a deep passion for cannabis. However, there was a brief moment when he quit smoking weed during the filming of his and Redman‘s classic 2001 stoner comedy How high.
During a performance at Kitchen Talk podcast earlier this month to discuss the film’s 21st anniversary, he said he and Redman temporarily quit smoking weed because they got way too high on the set.
“Initially yes,” Meth replied to Maino’s question about whether he smoked real weed throughout the film. “Hell yes! And they thought, ‘You’re so good in the morning, but after lunch you come back, something’s different.’
He continued: “Producer Stacey Sher, I remember she pulled me aside and she said, ‘You know after this I’m still going to be a producer, my face isn’t on the screen, but I’m getting my credit. It’s your face on the screen. How do you want to be seen?’ You’re right, you’re right.”
Meanwhile, last month The Staten Island native said he believes that’s why rappers are able to make smooth transitions into acting because they lie so well.
“I think a lot of rappers are big liars,” he said The Sherri Shepherd Show. “I just want to keep that money, a lot of them are big liars, and I think that translates on screen. Honestly, it’s more about being able to stand in front of 15,000 people or 1,500 people and command their attention.”
He added: “Even like when people do plays. We know the scenery isn’t moving and we know they’re not on an actual moving train, but we’re so fascinated by the actors and the process that’s going on in front of us, that we allow ourselves to fall deeper into our imagination.”
