I've been into Bone Thugs since 'Creepin' On Ah Come Up,' I peeped their first release 'Faces Of Death' after hearing 'Creepin' On Ah Come Up' and enjoyed it a lot. 'E. 1999 Eternal' was a pretty dope LP, but they made a very bad decision with their next LP; 'Art Of War,' the bad decision was releasing it. So many tracks were of a mediocre quality, but I didn't pay much attention to them having 'Thug Luv' on repeat constantly.
Now, in 2000, Bone are releasing their 5th LP, and it could be their last, I've heard from a lot of people that Bizzy Bone has been thrown out of the group, and Bizzy Bone is a vital part of the group, it's like NWA without Eazy-E, oh shit, the remaining members were stupid enough to recreate the group under the same name minus a vital member, ah well. It's kind of ironic though, that the intro to the LP has them speaking about the group breaking up.
I'll start by stating something to reasonably new Hip Hop fans or people that haven't heard Bone's material before, the music is like wine, it's an acquired taste. And, a lot of people dislike their material, but then again, a large amount of people don't. Check the sample tracks to try to gather an opinion.
The LP features tracks with out very distinct sounds, but, being Bone, a lot of the rhyming is at a very fast pace, and at times it's hard to keep up with and grasp exactly what's being said. Though, there are a lot of occasions where the rhyming is very clear and slow enough to distinguish still keeping the speedy pace.
With all Bone releases, you have the tracks speaking about money, violence and drugs. Is this one different? Well, no, but it is very well done. Some good examples of these are 'Resurrection (Paper Paper)' for money of course, '2 Glocks' for violence and, guess what 'Weed Song' is about? All of those tracks feature well-created beats, and on the whole, pretty good lyrics.
'BTNHResurrection' also features its fair share of positive tracks, which, with their being three of them, two out of three are dope, but there is an exception ('Change The World').
Bone Thugs N' Harmony's latest, and possibly last LP is well worth peeping if you're a fan, it's on the level of 'E. 1999 Eternal' (which is a good thing) and is an impressive collection of tracks.
