He dropped out of school in the ninth grade and took up various unusual jobs to afford it financially. He then returned to school but dropped out in class XI.
The Method Man seemed focused on money at the time, as he would do almost any strange thing to put some money in his pocket.

In the days when he was a class, Method Man spent time with his cousins Genius (GZA) and Old Dirty Bastard (Ol’ Dirty Bastard) and rapped with them.
