Staten Island isn’t known for very many things. We’ve always had Fresh Kills, a now closed landfill that could supposedly be seen from outer space. More recently, we’ve had a run of nationally notable reality shows like Mob Wives and Jersey Shore highlighting our guido-american population.

Being an integral part of the group’s success, Method Man has become something of a local legend, who walks around the borough like he’s not internationally famous.
