Bone, bone, bone, bone, bone, bone, bone, bone, bone. Tell me whatcha gonna do when there ain't nowhere to hide. I didn't have the benefit of growing up with the type of older sibling who would buy me a copy of Blonde on Blonde for my 13th birthday or make me a Lou Reed mixtape just to be cool. No, my older sister was (and is) a card-carrying radio rap and R&B fan (not that there's anything wrong with that), and the artists I was instructed to enjoy at a tender age were Haystak, 20 Fingers, 112, Three 6 and the like.
But there was one group in my familial thuggy indoctrination that stuck with me. One band that I personally considered to be pretty badass. One band of whom my sister had a velvet, blacklight-sensitive Spencer's Gifts poster over her bed. Bone Thugs-n-muthafuckin'-Harmony. Well, the Thugs are playing Limelight tomorrow, Feb. 25, with openers Anonymus, The Young Kings, Scrillion Capone (no word yet on whether or not Scrillion is Space's brother) and some other folks I confess I'm not familiar with. You can bet your peach-flavored blunt wraps that the crowd is going to go ape-shit when they hear the jam I've embedded after the jump. Sure, it was their version of a power ballad -- or gangsta rap's answer to "Dust in the Wind," if you will -- but I'll bet I'm not the only person who sang along to it on 92Q at some point.
Also, here's Bizzy Bone making a girl's wish come true. Thug with a heart of gold. Good for him.
