Soulja Boy Defends Method Man’s Summer Jam “Generational Gap” Comments

Method Man feels that Summer Jam may be for the kids now due to a “generational gap,” and Soulja Boy wholly understands the icon’s sentiment. TMZ caught up with Soulja on Tuesday (June 4), where the outlet asked him about the Wu-Tang Clan rapper’s comments and asked how he felt about his stance.

While Soulja kept an open mind, he insisted that Meth didn’t really feel that way about Summer Jam and that he was in his feelings after experiencing a lackluster crowd. However, the “Crank That” rapper asserted that a New York City crowd should know who he is and respect him as a legend.

“I don’t think he mean that. He probably just in his feelings,” he said. “He probably gon’ perform at a future event, you know what I’m saying? But shout out to him. People got different… I don’t know. That’s New York, though. Everybody supposed to know who he is. It don’t matter. That’s crazy… There probably was a lot of young people in the audience. Shout out to him. He’s definitely a legend, for sure. He entitled to respond however he feel like. It’s gon’ be all good.”

On Sunday (June 2), Method Man hopped online on Instagram after his and Redman’s performance to state that he wasn’t satisfied with the crowd’s lukewarm energy. Meth explained that the energy of the audience showed him that the “generational gap” had widened to the point that he didn’t see a reason for him to come back in 2025.

“Not our crowd at all,” he began. “Thanks again, New York and the whole tri-state (that showed up to the event), plus Pete and Ebro. I got love for you guys, but never again…at this point, the generation gap is just too wide for me.”
