Conveniently timed for Father’s Day, Method Man sounds off on the annual holiday by explaining why pops across the world deserve more credit. Speaking with Soul Culture UK, Johnny Blaze explains that dads should be honored for their parental skills, which are often overshadowed by mothers.
“You know what’s so fucked up about Father’s Day? It’s so fucked up that I’ll give you a prime example. Dad usually holds down all the bills, keeps the lights on, everything. Put the food in the house, he go out and fuckin’ fight for the bread and all that shit and bring it home to the family, go out and kill the moose, drag that shit back on his motherfuckin’ back so his wife can cook it,” he said. “When Mother’s Day come around, they get mugs, they give ‘em flower pots, all kinds of dope shit. You know what dads get? We get that little construction paper tie. It’s not a big deal. Mother’s Day, first 50 ladies in free at the club. It’s Mother’s Day. Father’s Day, you don’t get that shit.”
For Meth, the holiday just goes to show how society looks at father figures. “Father’s Day sucks. We deserve way more credit,” he continued. “As far as the market goes, they about to drop Father’s Day because they don’t really make no money. But Mother’s Day, that’s up there. That’s tops.”
