One of the standout moments from the 2019 BET Awards was Mary J. Blige’s tribute performance. 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.”
The reactions from Method Man’s on stage appearance reminded us of one thing: ol’ boy hasn’t aged a bit. In fact, he just keeps getting better looking as time goes by. Black Twitter clearly agrees:
We couldn’t help but appreciate this legendary piece of eye candy by going back into the vault and celebrating Method Man’s three decades of fine.
Method Man, real name Clifford M. Smith, Jr., was born in Long Island, New York. He rose to fame as part of the famous hip hop collective Wu-Tang Clan, and later branched out to solo music and acting ventures.

Always A Stunner
Whether hitting the stage in front of hundreds of thousands or on set at one of his many acting gigs, you can't argue that meth has always been fine.

Sharing The Love
Fun fact: In addition to his good looks, Method Man has historically been coined the friendliest member of the Wu-Tang Clan. "Method Man gets along with everybody,” fellow Wu member RZA once told The Daily Beast.

One of the things we love about Method Man is how easily he switches from street style to clean cut...like he did on the carpet of the 2009 VH1 Hip Hop Honors.

Suit and Tie
The rapper gave us hot flashes in this pinstripe suit while a guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers. Here, he told the audience that rappers make great actors for one important reason: "they're great liars."
