It was a flashback straight from the ’90s when Method Man hopped on stage last night looking like a total snack as they performed their collab “All I Need.” Wu-Tang Clan’s Method Man appeared for one of last night’s highlights, a duet performance of 1994’s Grammy-winning “I’ll Be There For You/You’re All I Need To Get By” just after the 16:00-mark. Notably, they perform the “Razor Sharp Mix,” courtesy of RZA with the sinister strings at the top.
