Method Man treated a lot of people at his former record label Def Jam poorly after the staff changed, he revealed in a new interview with HipHopDX.

"I burned a lot of fucking bridges at Def Jam,” he said. “I had a lot of love for the company ’cause I came in when I was young. I had been there for so many fucking years, so when staff changed and people changed and things started to change, I didn’t know how to handle the shit."

The changes happened before his 2006 album 4:21... The Day After, his fourth and last with the label, and Meth chose not to work with the new staff and only spoke to the people who already worked at the label.

“I hung onto the people that were still there and alienated myself from the new people and by that, that small circle I had, the bigger circle around it, none of them fucked with me," he explained. "And then that small circle that I fucked with, there was nothing they could do about it, so they couldn’t fuck with me either, so now I’m a man on an island by my fucking self.”

The actor and TV host said he was really sorry because a lot of folks at Def Jam should've been treated better.

“This was before JAY-Z even got there [in December of 2004],” he said. “It was a shift and I didn’t know how to handle the shit. I should’ve stayed true to myself and been myself, but I didn’t and I was rotten to a lot of people up at Def Jam. There were some people up there [that] deserved the shit. But I was rotten to a lot of people who did not fucking deserve it, and I apologized for that shit, big time.”

How do you think Meth's career turned out? Do you think he would have been a bigger solo artist if he had stayed with Def Jam?
