Nelly made comments recently that the Rap era of 1999-2010 was the toughest of all-time.

Now, legendary Wu-Tang emcee Method Man weighed-in and agreed to some extent.

“That’s weird to hear him say that, but I get it ‘cause he had nothing else to refer to. I mean, that seems like a tough era, right?” He told “7PM In Brooklyn” hosts Carmelo Anthony and The Kid Mero.

“But I think the toughest era in Hip Hop, f**k it, I say all of ‘em, man, ‘cause we all still fighting for the same f**king position. What is he talking about? We all still fighting for the same f**king position.”

Anthony, Mero and Meth agreed that Nelly representing the Midwest mostly on his own at that time may have also been a contributing factor to why he thinks the stretch between 1999 and 2010 was ripe with competitors who were all fit to sit at the No. 1 spot.

“He has some validity to that ‘cause it was pretty tough, but at that point in time, Hip Hop was everywhere. So as far as getting on, nah, it was an audience for anybody that could get their s**t heard or put out at that time, whereas back when we started, you ain’t even know what motherf**kers looked like, there wasn’t no video, no album reference, nothin’. S**t, it was just what you heard on the radio and s**t,” added Method.

“All those eras were hard, though. I mean, everybody opened doors [so] the next person could have it a little bit easier. Period. But I’m not going to deny what he is saying.”
