3. Wu-Tang Clan "Method Man" (1993)
Album: Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
Method Man established himself as Wu-Tang Clan's first breakout star not just by appearing on the most tracks on 36 Chambers, but with the help of the incredibly fun "Method Man" single. Overflowing with charisma, Meth was able to showcase his plentiful talents on this quirky-yet-accessible show-stopper loaded with tons of pop-culture references, including Fat Albert, Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" ("Super sperm!"), and Hall & Oates (the "M-E-T-H-O-D" is inspired by their song "Method of Modern Love"). His name derived from Shaolin slang for weed, Method Man's career went sky-high thanks in large part to this multidimensional performance.
