One of the most successful, unique and best groups of all-time; Bone Thugs-n-Harmony dropped their debut album, Creepin On Ah Come Up twenty-two years ago today. I’ll be honest; I didn’t jump on the bandwagon right off the bat because I hadn’t heard of them. One day, one of my friends asked if I wanted to ride somewhere with him and when I got into the car, he knew I was a music head and asked if I heard about them. Right away, I blown away by how smooth they sounded and then to top it off; they had a track with Eazy-E, Foe Da Love of $ which is an instant classic. When they dropped their debut, it put the entire hip hop world on notice and introduced a new style of music and rapping. The 8-track album left fans wanting more from Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, and the anticipation for the groups 2nd album were something we all couldn’t wait for them to drop. Below are the videos for their leading singles Thuggish Ruggish Bone and Foe Da Love of $!!!
For those who were waiting on their second album, we didn’t have to wait long because they released E.1999 Eternal dropped the following July. Eazy-E, their mentor and boss passed away 6 months before the release so many didn’t know how it would affect the project. The first single, First of the Month got things rolling in the right direction and it was followed by East 1999. When they released the single and video for the remix of Crossroads, that took Bone Thugs-n-Harmony to superstar status. Below you can catch the classic video for the Crossroads from Bone Thugs-n-Harmony.
