What do Marion Berry and Method Man have in common? Drugs and Tax Problems…

I just smoked my Navigator away!

I just smoked my Navigator away!

Not that I am one to talk, but I keep my dirt private.  Plus, I filed for an extension to delay the inevitable, unspeakable crime against humanity my tax situation is.  Death and taxes are truly two things you can count on.  Another thing that you can count on is Marion and Meth have a love of the drugs.  Here is a blast from the past with In Living Color…

Method Man and Marion Barry have been in the news for tax problems.  Marion seems to just not be able to pay his taxes.  He doesn’t think that he has to, so he doesn’t.  That is just going to get him locked up.  But Marion got a larger than average sized “baggie” of luck…

Federal prosecutors Thursday dropped a request that D.C. Council member Marion Barry be jailed for failing to pay his taxes on time, instead asking a judge to extend the former mayor’s probation, subject him to electronic monitoring and place him under a curfew.

“The government can read the tea leaves,” Mr. Barry, Ward 8 Democrat, said after a hearing in U.S. District Court.

During the proceedings before U.S. Magistrate Judge Deborah A. Robinson, assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Zeno repeated the request that Mr. Barry be incarcerated for violating the terms of his 2006 probation by failing to file his tax returns on time and said confining the council member on weekends or in a halfway house “would satisfy the government.”

This is not the first time that Marion has given the finger to the idea of paying your taxes is patriotic.

Judge Robinson is expected to issue a written ruling in coming days.

The one thing that helps Marion is that he has mind control over the justice system similar to the mind control that Chris Tucker had over Debo in Friday.

Prosecutors in 2007 unsuccessfully tried to have Mr. Barry’s probation revoked after he failed to file his 2005 taxes on time, and in February sought to send him to jail for being late with his 2007 tax returns – the eighth time in nine years that he failed to file on time, they said.

Method Man on the other hand, was alledged to have some AfroMan in him…

Late last month, New York newspaper The Daily News reported that rapper Method Man was too high to pay taxes and that his Lincoln Navigator was seized as a consequence.

In the interview, Method Man explained that “Myself, I’m a pothead. It’s no secret. Everyone knows that. I go on the road and forget everything else. Sure, [the tax department] sent letters to my house saying, ‘We need this money.’ They started sending them in 2002. Here it is, 2009, and I never paid this shit because I don’t think like that!


We understand bro… It’s hard keeping track of where your stash is, how can you keep a hold of a single piece of paper like a W-2?


But in a video that was featured on WorldStarHipHop earlier this week Method Man makes a few clarifications regarding The Daily News interview.

I’m back. I forgot to clear up one more thing up,Method Man explained. “At the end of the article it says, the reporter and shit says I didn’t pay my taxes. It was a play on the Afroman song. We was playing around. It was jokes. You know what I mean? We was joking around at the end of the article and it wasn’t fair that The Daily News put that headline on there.

Filmed on the set of one of his upcoming videos, Method Man made sure to point out his soberness.

And I’m sober right now at my video shoot,” said Method Man. “These nigga’s been smoking in the background. I’m sober right now telling y’all this.

Blackout 2, Method Man and Redman’s second studio album as a duo is expected to be released on May 19.

Support this brother because it is costly to fight the IRS and to have a decent stash of weed around for all the hangers-on.

Remember, crack is a hell of a drug…
