Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony

BoneThugs.jpgPossessing a unique blend of melodic vocals and tongue-twisting rhymes, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony took the hip-hop world by storm in 1994. Since then, the Cleveland collective has seen their singsongy style run into the ground by swagger jackers. So after a 4-year break, BTNH looks to reclaim their spot with their self-titled sixth album. However, with Flesh-N-Bone still incarcerated and Bizzy Bone completely out of the picture, the remaining three members sound like a shell of their former selves.

Things get off to a promising start on the sinister intro. Over a dark bass line, a rejuvenated Layzie Bone spits, “In 1994, we switched the game up/Spit the hardest with the rappin’ and the flow that always changed up.” That’s what makes this project so disappointing. Bone is a group known for their layered harmonization, but here they repeatedly deliver unimaginative choruses. Despite the detailed narrative of “Thug Stories,” the Platinum Brothers–produced song quickly loses steam as the paint-by-numbers hook comes in. The same fate befalls “Rich Man’s World,” where the lyrical darts are muted by a halfhearted chant (“Money, money, money/Must be funny/In a rich man’s world”).

Even more troubling is the fact that BTNH’s penchant for hood tales is sorely underrepresented on this 12-track disc. Instead, there are obligatory Kraft Singles like the R&B-fueled “Call Me” and the scorned woman’s theme song “She Got Crazy.” The failed attempts at broadening their audience reach the apex on the ironically titled “So Sad,” which pays tribute to “All you slimy, grimy women.”

It isn’t until the tail end of the album that Bone gets back on track. The fighting-temptation message of “Stand Not in Our Way” and the reflective “This Life” are more in line with past BTNH hits. But even the most die-hard fans will find themselves at a crossroads trying to get in tune with this disc.—JOZEN CUMMINGS

  • e

    Damn an M rating Bone Thugs are still one of the best groups in hip hop histroy regardless

  • Mr.Me

    Fuck XXL for this. How Banks get a better ratin then the Original Thugstas??? Anyone readin this review please ignore it an go cop the album because the shit is Fire! This is just a filler album they put out on Koch before the Interscope album wit Swizz drops. This album is damn near a mixtape an its still hot. Shit deserves a L at the least.

    • http://www.myspace.com/bbcktcjsick jsick

      I agree bone thugs r the shit 4 sho

  • xXEmanXx

    yea this is a mixtape kina album so fucc the reviewes n e one know when its coming out?

  • mac

  • M Deuce

    come on man!!! wtf! M? u need to get ur head rite. this is BONE THUGS we talkin bout!

    Neway, this shit aint evn self titled nemore. its called thug stories and is comin out on koch on sept. 19. first single is fire, and the songs fire and dont stop are playin on the radio. and they didnt evn mention them in the review… its a sad sad day in hiphop when bone gets a lower rating than rick ross….

  • FUCC YO COUCH NIGGA

    How are you even gonna sit there n try to shit on BONE? Those dudes are a breath of fresh air, classic, and timeless all at the same time. No group has ever, or will ever, come close to touching these cats. Name one group that can qualify to even wash their collective jock strap. Their isn’t one. And fuck Rick Ross, Young Jeezey, n all the other homos that can’t rhyme about anything but bustin’ they guns and sellin’ drugs. Those dudes are nohing but the flavor of the month and they’ll be washed up pretty soon.

  • http://n/a EAST COAST

And with all these posts you see that Bone still knows how to reach their fans! Thanks Bone for every title you put out, we Love you!

  • datniggamac

    This is a sad and depressing state in hip-hop when Young Cheesey, Young Cock, and the rest of these fuckers get higher ratings than Lloyd Banks, Bone Thugs N Harmony, and DMX. It’s fuckin sad

  • East99

    Bone thugs is by far my favorite music out there and support anything they drop…but lets be realistic. All the songs that have been leaked, would not be given the time of day by any of you if it werent bone thugs. But we shouldnt judge them by the Koch album. Wait till their shit with Swizz Beats comes out. That will either put Bone back on the map, or disappear them for good..

  • jdm

    i love bone thugs but im not mad at the review cause i havent heard the cd

  • MICHAEL

    FUCK XXL IF THEY DON’T RECONIZE THAT BONE IS THE BEST HIP HOP GROUP EVEN WITHOUT BIZZY, BUT WHEN BIZZY COMES BACK BONE WILL BE AT THE TOP OF THE GAME.EVEN THOUGH KRAYZIE BONE IS THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE, BUT WHEN BONE BECOMES ONE WITH BIZZY THEY CAN’T BE STOPPED.

  • http://myspace.com Gemini

    Yo man, this review is whack. XXL y’all getting caught up in all this current hip-hop mindset of bumping-party beats, money, and bling shit. Bone reps REAL rap and always have. Y’all just don’t realize what’s good anymore. Bone isn’t behind the times or fallen off at all, it’s just people like y’all follow whack rappers and most of these fans follow y’all and go with the flow. You at XXL and all other mags have to realize you influence people just as much as the artists themselves. I suggest you re-evaluate your stance on the art of hip-hop and what has become of this. Most of the stuff that comes out today would’ve been trashed during the days of say KRS-One and Public Enemy because that’s when everything in hip-hop was real. There’s a reason that was called the GOLDEN AGE of hip-hop.

  • Nark

    fuck this shit XXL could go suck a fuckin dick along with all the south rappers you fuckers just want $$$$ so i give you some money to suck a dick fuckers i bet i will do that and really for this shit bone should not even make an interview for this mag and spit on them when they see the XXL guys runnin to them no one will ever be BONE they are just CLONES

    This is crazy. They probably just skimmed through the album and gave it a “M” People dont listen to music anymore. I’ve heard some cuts from the album and I would give the album a “L” just off of them. XXL is trippin, but they are all about that fake music anyway. If Bone was signed to G-Unit, or the Roc, they would have got an “XXL” I Bet! Ignorance is overpowering. Bone-4-Life. Oh yeah, shout out to btnhboard.com.

    the review seems correct you phukkin noobs just hate to hear the truth!

  • Mystic Oracle

    this album is weaker than TWO and the fact that its funny cause they have nobody to push blame on anymore but themselves guess bizzy wasnt the one who ruined TWO , thug stories is a very lackluster album and its almost sad to think its a bone album good songs are hard to find except the intro which delivers a false hope of album greatness
    the songs where bone is rapping about females are terrible , the lyrics seem to be slower now , no harmony, no creativity or effort was put into this album and if they did give 100 % on it well bone is finished making music ………….nervous now about what the interscope/full surface album will bring if anything they should bring back bizzy because this 3 man collective isnt strong enough to carry an album IM STRATING A PETITION FOR BONE : GO BACK TO ST.CLAIR AND E.99TH FOR 1 YEAR AND COME BACK WITH AN ALBUM CAUSE YA’LL ARE SO UN THUGGISH NOW ITS ALMOST EMBARRISING

    sad. XXL clearly has alternative motives as far as the mainstream reviews are concerned. I have the album and its not a M at least have the decency to give legends like bone a damn L… I suggest XXL review there motivation and stop slobbin on the mainstream pee pee. No opinion from this publication will mean anything to me ever again.

  • Gary

    XXL you guys continue to give unbelievably wrong reviews. Gave Yayo XL and Banks Rotten apple a L. You guys are horrible at this shit. This album was quickly put together to fill a contract clause. Wait till the Interscope record. AND THIS ALBUM is DECENT!!! NOT bad!! But every tru bone fan will still love

  • Danny Geezay

    Man, Bone been gettin hated on from day one…no respect and it’s fuckin disgusting. XXL should be ashamed for rating these “fake ass wannabe hit makin cats” better than Bone Thugs. They write their own music and it’s all original. Everyone including Jeezy, Ross, Nelly, steal their style and have the nerve to say Bone fell off. Get some real hip hop listeners to listen to the music before giving living legends an M. Wait til tha Swizz album…all you dick riders gon get back on your horses. Fuck XXL! Thug love 1

THEY KEPT IT REAL IN THE STREES NOT LIKE THE RAPPERS NOW WITH THEIR CLUB SONGS AND SHIT. BONE ARE THE ONLY RAPPERS THAT I’VE HEARD THAT STILL HAVE THE STREET STYLE IN THEIR RAP.

  • Lowkey

    I think it should be known that this is an independent self released album for the fans since it has been 4 years since Bone’s last album. Thier true sixth album is being produced by swizz beatz, kanye west, and others and will feature people like Akon, Chamillionare, and others. This album is a collection of mostly old and dated material that they are sharing with their true followers.

  • big bone

    This is all fuckin bullshit, man people these days are so caught up in fuckin bullshit ass music that just has good rythym with dumbass lyrics. BONE can never be touched by anyone now or ever. This album is what bone is all about, on the interscope album comin later there gonna be more mainstream and more of what people like right now but i wont blame bone for tryin to get sum paper even though they gotta change their style to get it.

  • YN IS A BITCH

    First of all, the tracks the revied here are from “Thug Stories,” not the self-titled album. Get it straight, XXL, you bitch-ass G-Unit-dick-riding YN-cock sucking bitches.

    And second of all, from the most die-hard BTnH fan ever… “Thug Stories” sucks DICK. I’ve never heard a more sing-songy, hold hands and heal the world record since Nelly stepped on the scene.

    Bone Thugs-N-Harmony? Nah. Bone Hugs-N-Harmony.

  • USMC

  • esmoke1

    How many rappers can say they broke the beatles record? how many rappers can say they made great songs with pac,big,eazy-e, pun and countless others? how can you give Bone and m? its pretty crazy how many records these brothers sold and y’all still dont show no love……what happens when real hip hop surfaces? it gets trashed with a rating like yours….im canceling my subscription…i thought y’all had better taste….

  • RYVL

    This review sucks, this is a dope album…if you dont got it yet, then cop it TODAY!!!!

  • clyde

    this album is the shit any tru bone fan will love it cop that shit bone thugs forever

  • scortfreak

    This is an extremely bad review. The album is excellent, with the exception of a few songs. The E.1999 days are long gone, you can’t expect them to come back and drop the same style they were doing ten years ago. They’ve changed their style, it’s different to pretty much anything out there, and it’s going to take a while to get used to for any true Bone fan, nonetheless, it’s an awesome album, DEFINITELY worth buying if you haven’t already.

    8/10 for the album, 2/10 for the crap review.

  • big dee-herrin

  • http://myspace.com/jesuswalkswithme13 Devin Perez

    XXL has a way of making Bone looking bad. “So Sad” doesn’t just say what is up there. It says “all these slimey grimey women/birthin children to make a million” referring to gold diggers. Don’t make BONE look bad cuz you’ll look worse.

  • Deezy

    XXL fucked up. They didn’t even get the album right. It’s called “Thug Stories” and has a different cover and tracklist (some are not on the album listed here). The album is still bangin’ even though they saved their best for the Interscope release. Check out “So Sad” “Still No Surrender” and “Stand Not In Our Way.” Go cop this cd, this shit is hot! Original thuggish ruggish Bone doin what they do best.

  • http://jp jp

    “stand not in our way” gets this album an XL alone..hot shit…
    wack reviews as usual…

  • blockhugga

    look bone thugs did it again like usual but why you hatin on jeezy that nigga sometimes can rhyme sometimes cant but the thing is when he speaks that shits real he dont make shit up just listen to tell tell tell iight but not sayin hes better then bone thugs jsut sayin dont hate on him cuz he speaks real but rick ross is just a stupid fat fuck that got lucky and some one hooked his ass up like me when i hustle my rocks…holla at ya boy

  • True Bone

    It’s not that this album sucks, it just lacks the power that their albums usually have. It’s as if they’re holding back. This is GREATLY due to the fact that they don’t have Bizzy and Flesh. Aside from that, most of these songs would do well spread out between albums with more powerful songs. Not the best album, but it’s an album worth buying if you’re a true BTNH fan. Besides, what makes them so great is their style of rap, they kept the style of rap, but the full harmony is not there which is why people say it sucks.

  • http://xxlmag.com DARK

    Bone thug aight right now but they seriously need bizzy back these niggas are classic.2pac and bone thugs thug luv was one classic mothafuckin song that was some raw shit.And east 1999 these niggas are classic fuck haters.

  • Hov

    this one was like a L and a half IMO.

  • Dizzie

    i’m schizophrenic like bizzy but i don’t get drunk and feel sorry 4 myself..he ain’t gone find the lord, the lord gone find him.. the best to the sorriest goes krayzie, bizzy, layzie, then wish..i want to review their cd but the old ablums were on top of the game 4real especially art of war.. i’m surprised and glad they ain’t get shot..good luck bone and God bless..

HARDER THAN EVER. THUG STORIES IS JUST SOMETHIN’ FOR US TO LISTEN TO UNTIL THE REAL ALBUM COME OUT. XXL YALL SOME PUSSIES FOR THIS ONE. HOW DARE YALL DOG OUT BTNH?

    Yeah I hear you X 4 real punk ass xxl must be runned by white boys or asains or some wack ass shit cause for them to be dissin bone thugs is just fucked up xxl obiviously is only into wack ass rappers to be dissin bone thugs.Yeah I hope bizzy quit actin crazy bout that religion I mean it good to have religion in your life but he gettin nuts with it and I hope flesh get out soon I hope all 5 are back togeter again.My most favorite song from bone thugs was thug luv featuring 2pac I bump that shit all the fuckin time when I’m crusin in my hood or just chillin in the crib these guys are the best man.And east 1999 man these dudes got so many good songs.You liston to these other rappers today and they just sound like fuckin garbadge like gay unit wack ass rappers like that.Bone thugs NWA mc eiht 2pac biggie Eazy E those are some real rappers my most favorites.

  • T.C.

  • Moe

    I think most off all can agree when i say XXL are some clowns for letting some roockie review the album. This is good old real music. And those who hate the album because bizzy isnt on it need to stop listen to bone and just listen to bizzy’s shit cause the nigga aint coming back it would seem. Stop being so damm spitfull and embrace the good nature of the “real” Thugs N Harmony

    Bone Thugs are the realest niggas in the rap game. You muthafuckas at XXL magazine got alot of nerve givin my niggas an “M” rating. They still hold shit down for Eazy-E and everybody in Cleveland. Bone Thugs are still the shit. Anotha thing you XXL bitches 4got was that they are the only rap group to collaborate with Eazy-E, Tupac, The Notorious B.I.G., and Big Pun while they were still alive makin powerful muzik. All you bitches at XXL magazine can suck my dick. It’s BONE 4 LIFE!

  • Lil Dee

    My nigga YG Bone is absolutely right. Bone Thugs are realest niggas in the game. Fuck XXL magazine. “Thug Stories” is tha hottest rap album in 2006. How tha fuck do bitch ass niggas like 50 Cent get “XL” ratings when he hasn’t been in the rap game that damn long. The Original Thugstas deserve alot more respect because they have worked with the best in the game such as Eazy-E, Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G, and Big Pun. “Thug Stories” gets a complete “XXL” rating. To the bitch that gave this album an “M” rating can suck a dick because Bone Thugs -N- Harmony are certified legends.

  • Weedman

    Bone Thugs are the greatest group of all time. Fuck all you bitch ass haters. You XXL muthafuckaz don’t know shit about music. Bone Thugs rap about that real street shit. Growing up in the streets, hustlin on corners, sellin drugs in the hood, and real gangsta shit. That’s how Bone Thugs first got started after they were discovered by Eazy-E. Fuck rappin about 24 inch rims and Caddillacs, poppin cris in the club, and doin bullshit dances. Fuck XXL magazine for givin the Original Thugs an “M” rating for “Thug Stories”. Fuck puttin G-Unit on almost every fuckin cover. Yo Jozen, in the words of D-Generation X, “If you’re not down with that, we got two words for ya: FUCK YOU! Bone Thugs -N- Harmony 4 LIFE! CLEVELAND stand up. The Midwest iz takin over the rap game. FREE FLESH -N- BONE.

  • MikeC

    Yo, this goes out to people that think Bone went “soft”. There ain’t gonna be Creepin on a Come up or another E. 1999 album. They were 17-20 years old when the made those albums. The have grown up and matured now. If you are almost 30 years old and you are still rappin’ about the same thing you did when you were 19, there is some thing wrong with you. And come on dogg, an M? Just because they aint’t rappin’ about dance moves, rims, and money. Lastly, how the fuck are you gonna Rick Ross an XL over Krayzie bones flow and speed? Nigga please!
