Tical is the debut solo album by American rapper and Wu-Tang Clan member Method Man, released in 1994 on Def Jam Recordings. It was the first Wu-Tang solo album released after the group's debut, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Similar to all first generation solo Wu-Tang projects, Tical was mainly produced by de facto leader RZA, who provided a dark, murky and rugged sound. The album features guest appearances from RZA, Raekwon and Inspectah Deck, as well as several affiliates who would later appear on future group projects. The album's title is a slang term for a blunt that has been laced with an adulterant, typically a sweetener or another psychoactive substance. The album title is also a play on the word "methodical".

Tical was a commercial success, reaching #4 on the Billboard 200, and #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. It was certified platinum in sales by the RIAA in 1995 after sales of one million copies. This success was driven by its two singles, "Bring the Pain" and "I'll Be There for You/You're All I Need to Get By". The album has since been hailed by several music critics as a classic hip hop album, and its success is matched by its influence as a major piece in the East Coast hip hop renaissance.
