It's a bird, it's a plane, take a look in the sky

from Method Man – Tical Lyrics on Rap Genius


A reference to Superman’s entrance — “Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s Superman!”. Method Man is basically saying he is Superman. He expands on this in his collaboration song with Pete Rock “Half Man Half Amazing” where he starts off the second verse by saying “Leaping tall buildings in a single bound”.

It would also appear in 1999

Look up in the sky it’s a bird it’s a plane
Recognize Johnny Blaze, ain’t a damn thing changed
Method Man — How High (feat. Redman)
