Thuggish, Ruggish: The 25 Dopest Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Songs

Layzie Bone. Krayzie Bone. Bizzy Bone. Wish Bone. Flesh-N-Bone. Five friends from Cleveland, OH, bum-rushed the rap game in the mid-1990s with a distinctive singsongy flow, street tales and their own unique personas. Flesh-N-Bone's legal troubles would estrange him from the group at times, but there was no denying the talents of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. After independently releasing their debut as teenagers, the Midwestern group signed to gangsta rap godfather Eazy E's Ruthless Records in 1993. Their debut EP Creepin' On Ah Come-up made Bone Thugs-N-Harmony one of the hottest new groups in Hip-Hop.

After Eazy's death in 1995 and the release of the critically-acclaimed E. 1999 Eternal, Bone Thugs became major stars in music. One of the most popular acts of the 1990s, the Grammy-winners would go on to major success and over the next two decades, established a following as devout as any in the game. With their rapid-fire flows and DJ U-Neek's darkly melodic production, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony set a new standard for Midwest rap stardom and reinvented the art of rhyming. You can still hear their influence today.
