Bone Thugs are back
Everyone has been talking about rap group Bone Thugs N Harmony's new CD Strength & Loyalty. I personally like their latest single from the CD Lil Love featuring my girl Mariah Carey. My coworker purchased and played the new CD for me which led to a question, a discussion really - what is Bone Thugs' all time best single? I easily chose 1st of tha Month. Everyone loved that song when it dropped in 1995. The beat was crazy, the way it hit you from the very beginning just after a school bell (which was suppose to be an alarm clock I guess) rang; and the lyrics were comical yet inspiring. The second verse done by Bizzy Bone was the tightest! He was truly the harmonious one in the group, where the heck is he now? Layzie Bone though had a line in his verse, "I'm yawning lightweight bent chugga lugga take a fifth to the dome" that I use to rewind and rewind! Even the music video to 1st of the Month was great. My coworker chose their song Notorious Thugs featuring The Notorious B.I.G. Huh what? Really, out of everything?! Alright that was a good song too and it featured the great Biggie Smalls, "It's Bone and Biggie Biggie", but their all time best? Another coworker chose East 1999 also dropped in 1995. That was a good song I suppose. Tha Crossroads, which went very mainstream and Thug Luv featuring Tupac came up in the discussion as well. Yes both very good songs released in 1995 and 1997 respectively. I'm pretty certain my sister would choose Thuggish Ruggish Bone. I just remember being in her car and the song blaring beyond belief in 1994. Bone Thugs have been around for a while now. What song would you say is their all time best (released or not)?
