Method Man rose to fame in the '90s as one of the leading voices in the highly regarded Wu Tang Clan. Tical is his slang terms for weed. It's an acronym for Taking Into Consideration All Lives. It's the title and lead track of Meth's solo album in 1994.

Meth co-starred with Redman in How High in 2001 and has appeared in numerous other movies and TV shows. He and Redman are both Top CelebStoners.
