Method Man and Mary J. Blige famously teamed up for the 1995 single and video “I’ll Be There for You/You’re All I Need to Get By.” The song served as a remix for the Wu-Tang Clan rapper’s “All I Need,” which appeared on his 1994 solo debut Tical. 

With Mary J. Blige on the hook and RZA behind the production board, the track seamlessly wove Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell’s 1968 hit “You’re All I Need to Get By” into the track, making it the almost like the 1990s Hip Hop version of the classic song.
