Sometimes the fun stuff starts even before the show does. For example: Method Man teaming with the Roots last night to warm up the crowd at Late Night With Jimmy Fallon with the Wu-Tang Clan classic "Protect Ya Neck."

"Protect Ya Neck" appeared on the hip-hop collective's debut, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), which marks its 20th anniversary this year. Good advice, however, is timeless.This article originally appeared on Rolling Stone: Method Man and the Roots Warm Up 'Fallon' Crowd With 'Protect Ya Neck'
