1st of Tha Month

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony

1st Of Tha Month (DJ Premier Remix)
from East 1999 12″ (1995, Ruthless)

Thuggish Ruggish Bone
Foe Tha Love Of $
from Creepin On Ah Come Up (1994, Ruthless)

We were pretty hyped on the homies from Cleveland known as Bone Thugs-N-Harmony back in 1994. Krayzie, Wish, Layzie and Bizzy struck hard with some ultra dark, fast lyrical delivery and harmonies like a street choir. With so many classics to choose from nowadays, It was hard to narrow it down to these 3 choices. Of course, today is August 1st 2005, so 1st of The Month was an obvious one. Wish I had my rent money together… Luckily the manager aint sweatin’ it til Payday.. The DJ Premier remix is a definite banger that rarely gets the play or time of day for the exception of the DJ who plays rare/B-Side cuts. I also included Thuggish Ruggish Bone and Foe Tha Love Of $, featuring the late Eazy-E. Both of these were some of their biggest hits and were released on their 2nd Album…. “Creepin On A Come Up” was their first commercially available album. Their first album was entitled “Faces Of Death” and was available at swap meets and Ma&Pa shops that stocked indie releases.

It’s crazy that they are still around, even though Mr. Bizzy Bone went off the deep end on the religious tip several months back, but that’s another story. Their music withstands the test of time and even though its thug related, You cant front on how dope it is. It was something about Eazy-E that made him bring out some incredible talent. Let’s not forget, NWA, Bone, Above The Law, The DOC, JJ Fad, Blood of Abraham, Penthouse Players Clique, Blood of Abraham and Atban Klann (now known as the Black Eyed Peas)…. Enjoy these joints and Pay your rent.

    Didn’t know that Premo remix. Very nice one. Never was a real Bone fan, but “Creepin’ On Ah Come Up” is a good record. No doubt.
