A few days ago the tax man paid a visit to rapper Method Man’s house and repo’d his brand new Lincoln Navigator. Well according to the NY rapper there’s a perfectly good explanation for what happened.
Meth claims that he would have paid the tax money … but he was consistently high for the last 5 years … and so he forgot.
Here’s what he told the NY Daily News:
“Myself, I’m a pothead … It’s no secret. Everyone knows that. I go on the road and forget everything else. Sure, [the tax department] sent letters to my house saying, ‘We need this money.’ They started sending them in 2002.
Here it is, 2009, and I never paid this s— because I don’t think like that!
I could have easily just written them a check for whatever amount, but no — I waited until they knocked on this door and were like, ‘We got your truck and we outta here,’ ”
And he continued:
I’ve found checks from 2005 that have never been opened yet. And we’re talking a significant amount of money! But I never opened [the tax department’s] letters ... so this is how the tax man came to Meth’s house and took his truck. Not because I was broke! I got plenty of money!”
