    “On the spot: Jamie Dickinson, media arts freshman”

    Do you like Method Man?

    Yeah, he’s cool.

    Do you know what his real name is?


    It’s Clifford Smith. Kind of weird, huh?

    (Laughs) Clifford.

    Yeah, and apparently Clifford Smith is in some trouble with the government right now. Did you hear about that?

    Uh oh. What did he do?

    He got busted for tax evasion.

    He didn’t pay his taxes?

    Yeah, for a period of like three years and now he owes about $33,000 in back taxes.

    Oh man, that sucks.

    Yeah. He’s supposed to be rich because of all his music and movies and stuff and he didn’t even pay his taxes. What’s up with that?

    He’s just stupid and probably wants to spend all his money on weed.

    That’s actually the reason he gave too. In March, Method Man told the media that it was “”because I got high, I forgot to pay. It was stupid.””


    I know right. What kind of excuse is that?

    A Method Man excuse.

    It just seems like rappers can’t get any good publicity these days.

    Kanye’s thing, he’s just always been like that. He said he should be in the Bible.

    (Laughs) Wow. I didn’t hear about that one. But at least he pays his taxes.

    That’s true.

    What kind of advice would you give to Clifford Smith, because you know he’s not going to stop smoking weed?

    I don’t know. Maybe he should get an accountant or something.
