All of the women of Mob Wives: New Blood are tough as nails, but Drita D’Avanzo may take the cake as Staten Island’s sharpest tongue — with the brute force to back it up. Though it might not make sense at first that the mother of two would be an aspiring hip hop artist, after further thought, it’s sort of perfect. And on last week’s January 30 episode, she got herself a pretty major fan in the form of the one and only Method Man. Yes, as in one of the Wu Tang Clan’s finest.
“He is the master MC,” Drita gushes about the legendary rapper to the VH1 cameras. “When Method Man used to come out with a new track, I had to listen to myself. It was just so good that I wanted to put a car through a wall.”
See, the OG Mob Wife has been working on her own rhymes in the studio, with the hopes of showing them off to the ‘90s hip hop mainstay. Little does she know, her producer has set her up with one helluva surprise. And while she’s reading through her lyrics, in walks Method Man himself!
To say Drita flips out is an understatement. It’s seriously endearing to see her hard exterior totally break down as one of her personal idols walks into the room. Grinning from ear to ear, she jumps up and hugs the rapper. “You put staten island on the map!” Drita exclaims.
Returning the compliment, Method Man says, “And I love chicks that knock bitches out.” Who knew he was such a fan?
For those who are still questioning Drita’s relevancy in the hip hop game, she’s got some words for you. “I used to live in a crazy lifestyle, I’ve seen real f—d up things,” she explains. “So rap music I immediately related to.”
And instead of beating up broads, maybe Drita can release all of that tension through her music! “If I know a track makes me violent, that means I love it.”
A match made in heaven, if you ask us!
