Hip-hop star Method Man to tour schools as part of New York plea deal

Hip-hop star Method Man to tour schools as part of New York plea deal

Hip-hop star Method Man is going back to school.
As part of a plea deal reached following a marijuana arrest earlier this year, the former Wu-Tang Clan member was ordered to visit 15 New York City high schools to warn students about the dangers of drugs.
The rapper, whose real name is Clifford Smith, "is thrilled to do it," defense attorney Peter Frankel said Friday. "He's never been in trouble before. He's not a stereotypical rapper."
Smith, 36, was arrested May 17 after toll booth workers at the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel reported smelling marijuana smoke coming from his sport utility vehicle. He was charged with driving under the influence of drugs and drug possession after police said they found marijuana inside the SUV.
Prosecutors reduced the drug charges to disorderly conduct as part of the plea deal.
