Bone Thugs-N-Harmony: Krayzie Bone, Layzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, Flesh'n'Bones, Wish Bone.
Recorded at Trax Recording Studio, Hollywood, California.
"Crossroad"--re-titled "Tha Crossroads" when it was released as a single--won a 1997 Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group.
E. 1999 ETERNAL was nominated for a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. "1st Of Tha Month" was nominated for a 1996 Grammy for Best Rap Performance By A Duo Or Group.
Perhaps Bone Thugs-N-Harmony have created a new genre of music and should no longer be considered "rap." No, they're not singing over a rap beat, or rapping over an R&B tune or sampled loop; so what exactly are they doing? What Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are doing is fascinating the industry with an idiosyncratic vocal style--call it harmony hip-hop.
E. 1999 ETERNAL, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's first full-length release, further displays the trio's Cleveland-born music, and continues to concentrate on their thuggish-ruggish lifestyle. While Bone touch on the same themes as the bulk of gangsta rappers, they transform their world into a horror-filled fantasy. Thus, "Crossroad" deals not only with the reality of death, but with the inevitability of meeting the "missed ones" on the other side; and "Down '71 (The Getaway)" tells a tale of the group's escape from an execution.
Not only are Bone Thugs-N-Harmony vocally unique (the a capella "Me Killa" is the rap equivalent of doo-wop), but the beats represent both the East and West coast rap schools. On E. 1999 ETERNAL, D.J. U-Neek controls the boards, and helps Bone establish a Midwestern brand of hip-hop.
