Method Man is more than just a great rapper and esteemed actor. Last week, after he found out there is a patient at Staten Island University Hospital suffering from a life-threatening illness who happens to be a dedicated fan of the Wu-Tang Clan, Meth decided to cheer them up.
According to SILive, a young man, 26-year-old Bryson has been a patient at Staten Island University Hospital for three months. Due to privacy laws cited by the hospital, Bryson’s condition cannot be disclosed. However, the hospital revealed he is suffering from a life-threatening condition and is currently fighting for his life.
In conjunction with Method Man’s own Have A Heart NY, a nonprofit organization that is “dedicated to raising awareness and creating programs and events designed to provide a better life for underprivileged youth,” and SIUH’s “Week of Surprises,” arrangements were made for Bryson to finally meet his favorite rapper.
In a video shown by SILive, the Wu-Legend is seen entering Bryson’s room, driving a calm surprise upon which the amazing fan hails for a pound.
Tamika Smith spoke on behalf of the organization about the “Heart 2 Heart” act to the Advance saying, “At Have A Heart NY we are here to do what we can to help the youth of New York City. We are glad we were able to secure Method Man for a Heart to Heart visit with Bryson through Meth’s management.”
And, because Bryson is such a hip-hop head, the hospital staff purchased a speaker system for him to blast his hip-hop in harmony. With the present hype behind all things Wu-Tang, especially in Staten Island with the Wu-Tang District Street unveil, the release of the Showtime documentary Wu Tang: Of Mics and Men, and a forthcoming Hulu series Wu-Tang: An American Saga, Method Man is surely using his star power for the better.
