Mr. M-E-F himself, live in St. Louis! The last time Method Man came through town was more than a year ago as part of the Smoker's Club Tour, and the Wu-Tang dynamo stole the show with unmatched energy and charisma. Though to be fair, hobbled headliner Curren$y was on crutches, making it a little harder for him to run up and down the aisles of the Pageant. Method Man is the most radio-friendly member of the Wu, employing a quick wit and superb pen game that recently earned the rapper a spot on The Source's 2012 list of the "Top 50 Lyricists of All Time."

Approaching Twenty Years: Debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) will turn twenty in November 2013, and somehow all of the members of the group have retained relevance — no small feat indeed.
