The Wu-Tang Clan was assembled in the early 1990s with RZA as the de facto leader and the group's producer. Method Man met RZA in 1990 after hearing a tape the producer recorded as Prince Rakeem.

  3. Debut Single

    As Wu-Tang Clan ascended to hip hop stardom, Method Man was always one of the most visible members of the collective. He was one of only two members to get a solo song, "M.E.T.H.O.D Man," on the group's debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers. And he was the first to release a solo album under the Clan's unusual contract, which allowed its members to release albums under any record label

    Method Man was part of the very successful Hard Knock Life Tour with Jay-Z, Redman, Ja Rule, and DMX. During this tour, Method Man & Redman recorded Blackout!, a light-hearted, bass-heavy, profanity-laced party record with an EPMD-evoking emphasis on funky beats and the mischievous wit, cool flows, and good rhythm of the two MCs.

  5. Best Collaboration

    Method Man's solo debut, Tical (1994), was critically acclaimed and well received, entering the American charts at #4 and eventually selling in excess of one million copies. That album featured the hit single "All I Need," later remixed featuring Mary J. Blige, which won a Grammy ("I'll Be There For You/You're All I Need").
