Julius Randle and Method Man to appear in special ‘The Shop’ show in Brooklyn

21 July 2023

Call it a C.R.E.A.M. team.

Julius Randle, the Knicks star power forward and highest-paid player at over $28 million next season, and Method Man, the Wu Tang jewel, are the guests of next week’s inaugural ‘The Shop Uninterrupted Live Tour,’ the Daily News has learned.

Their conversation, which is open and free to the public, is set for Aug. 2 at Brooklyn’s Greenpoint Terminal Warehouse. It’s the first stop on a three-city tour for ‘The Shop Uninterrupted,’ which is produced by LeBron James’s entertainment company SpringHill and last year moved from HBO to YouTube.

As familiar NY faces of the past and present, Randle and Method Man are fitting choices for the Brooklyn show. Randle, 28, is entering his fourth season of a rollercoaster tenure with the Knicks, representing the franchise’s only All-Star of the last five years but also a polarizing figure among the fanbase. He underwent minor ankle surgery last month and is expected to be ready for training camp.

‘The Shop Uninterrupted’ will be Randle’s first time speaking publicly since the Knicks acquired Donte DiVincenzo and traded Obi Toppin. In a previous podcast interview with Clippers All-Star Paul George, Randle tacitly endorsed roster continuity because the Knicks, following last season’s run to the second round, are “not that far off.” Team president Leon Rose then followed up by only tinkering around the edges.

Method Man, a 52-year-old Staten Island product, is a hip hop legend and the transcendent lyricist of the Wu Tang Clan. He also launched a lucrative acting career with recurring roles on three HBO series.

Maverick Carter and Paul Rivera, both executives at the SpringHill Company, will serve as hosts of the Aug. 2 discussion. The event, which includes a block party after the live taping of the interview, starts at 4 p.m.

The final two cities of the tour are Washington D.C. on August 16 and Atlanta on August 25. A recent interview of Joel Embiid made waves from the Uninterrupted Film Festival, when the Sixers center told Carter that his championship goal may not happen in Philadelphia.
