Clifford Smith (aka Method Man) was born March 2,1971 in Hempstead, Long Island, New York. He took his stage name from the 1979 film The Fearless Young Boxer, also known as Method Man. He is perhaps best known as a member of the East Coast hip-hop collective Wu-Tang Clan. He is also one half of the hip-hop duo Method Man & Redman. In 1996, he won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, for I'll Be There for You/You're All I Need to Get By, with American R&B singer-songwriter Mary J. Blige. Method Man has appeared in the motion pictures Belly, How High, Garden State and has had minor roles in The Wackness and Venom and Red Tails. He has also had a recurring role on HBO's Oz, as Tug Daniels, and as Calvin "Cheese" Wagstaff on the HBO drama series The Wire. In 2007, the writers of About.com placed him on their list of the Top 50 MCs of Our Time (1987–2007). In 2012, The Source placed him on their list of the Top 50 Lyricists of All Time. Smith has had his share of legal troubles: In 2007, he was arrested in New York City on marijuana charges and in 2009, he was arrested at his home in Staten Island for income tax violations. On the controversial side of things, he had a personal and publicized conflict with TV talk show host Wendy Williams on The Breakdown, an internet show on Onloq.com. In another skirmish, during a concert in 2006 he criticized Sean Combs' decisions on The Notorious B.I.G. Duets: The Final Chapter album, saying that Biggie never would have worked with some of the subpar rappers. In yet another controversy, he was cast on a Fox sitcom, Method & Red (2004), but after only a short time the show was canceled, causing Method Man to complain in the press, bemoaning the network's decision to add a laugh track. Before the show even aired for the first time, he was telling fans not to bother watching it.
