Method Man -- The Explosive Shot to the Face

8/19/2010 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained video ... of the moment some dumbass at the Gathering of the Juggalos fired a beer can at rapper Method Man -- striking him in the face and opening a pretty nasty wound.

As we previously reported, Meth plans to "sue the motherf**kers" responsible for the incident -- but he was unclear if he will go after the event organizers or the person who tossed the object.

I don't understand these Juggaloos. They are the most bitter and angry people that clinch on a scene and think they are above every one. They have low self esteems and no ambition to be better people. They seem to have no respect. I admire Method Man for continuing his act.

You have to admit that was a pretty good shot. Quite often I've wanted to silence people doing their rhyming and rapping and whatnot, but have never tried throwing stuff. And i won't because it obviously doesn't work. This Method Man guy kept on rhyming like a 6 year old and that Tila thing kept on going. Maybe we should just find bigger things to throw. Like cinder blocks or Toyotas or something.

lmao!! Rufus Firefly and lhooq...you're both idiots...50 Cent got shot in the face when he was nobody, and he wasn't in the middle of a performance he was payed to come and do when it happened either. I'm pretty sure 50 complained about some sort of pain, or issue with NOT BEING ABLE TO FEEL HIS FACE within the "FOLLOWING 24 HOURS AFTER" being shot.

How bout you build a substantial career to where people CALL YOU and PAY YOU to come to their venue to perform your material. And when you get on stage, I'm gonna throw a FULL FKCING BEER CAN at your face UNTIL I SEE BLOOD, and then I'm gonna tell you to "stop being a huge P*U*S*S*Y and suck it up" when you have a problem with it. Does that make sense?

If I read correctly...he DID finish the show...if that isn't sucking it up...I don't know. You saw how Wu-Tang did Joe Budden. He probably is suing so he can find out where the person lives so the Clan can perform street justice.

Google Juggalo images, and it's plain to see that they are bottom feeding, backwoods inbred sister momma/uncle daddy, never get anywhere in life pond s***, human excretion redneck pieces of ****. White Trash is too good of a term for them.

Wow. "Sue the M****F******"? Foul, foul language.
Then again, I was told "We WON'T let another M****F*****
Elvis happen".
I wonder, WHO are the REAL M****F******?

Strange looking can, It looked like a bottle.
Soon there will be a chain link fence between the crowd and performer.

What is a juggalo? i know it's the fans of ICP same as MAGGOTS are to slipknot, both of which suck in my opinion, These are not fans of anything except violence, this is however a mixed crowd of young kids and older adults, so don't think these are all young punks at this concert.

I'm not a fan of rap but nobody deserves this no matter who it is, if anything i would beat the hell out of the person that threw it, because i paid money to see the performance. I despise people like this who ruin concerts that other people PAY to see, they wanna go have a good time, enjoy some good music, if they like it.

Sadly you always have idiots who like to ruin it for the real fans, not that ICP and Slipknot have any, hey if you like them that's your choice, i don't.

If you don't like them why throw stuff at them? At least Method Man had the balls to continue performing whether he was liked by the crowd or not.I would sue anybody i could if it happened to me, and anybody with any common sense would do the exact same, as it may be this man has a family and this is how he provides for that family, he doesn't deserve this nor does anyone else in the entertainment business.

Could of been worse, look what happened to one of metal's greatest guitarist Dimebag Darrell who was shot and killed on stage, this was just a beer can. No matter if you like them or not, that is your opinion, but why does people's opinions generate hate and hostility and violence at a concert? Enjoy the music and have fun doing it not throwing crap at the people you paid to see perform.

Sad world we live in.

So to sue Psycopathic Records and ICP is uncalled for. Now if he wants to sue the guy who hit him thats another story. Btw the throwing of water, Faygo, etc. Is just their way of getting wet and having fun. It was never meant to hurt anyone. JMO

Agreed. ICP have been doing these gatherings for going on 10 years and they know to inform their performers of what to expect. That's why they pay performers even if they change their mind and decide not to go on. They pay performers if they go onstage and then decide they no longer want to continue. Personally, I can't see subjecting myself to that level of crazy. While I think it's sad that people can't just sit back and enjoy the show without resorting to throwing stuff, the fact remains the performers know what to expect and it's been going on for years. Over the years no performer has threatened to sue until now. Sue the individuals that threw stuff but suing the band is ridiculi because performers are FOREWARNED. That's what ICP get for inviting a female and more specifically a no talent famewhore hack like Tila who is milking this shiz for all it's worth.
