Throughout the 90s, hip-hop music had evolved into rappin’ and livin’ out the realness of the streets. It was raw heat- where evil prowled and creeped. Many of the west coast rappers were inspired by the police. As a result, a key member of the controversial hip-hop group N.W.A (Niggaz Wit Attitudes) was branded as one of the most prolific lyricist who ever walked the face of the earth and they called him Easy E. The late, great E signed Grammy Award winners Bone, Thugs -n- Harmony to Ruthless Records in 1993 and the rest is history. (Easy E was a co-founder of Ruthless Records)
In fact, early on in Bone, Thugs –n- Harmony career, they came out with “Creepin’ on ah Come up.” That particular cut metaphorically expressed that “by any means necessary" kind of life. Those hardcore words stemmed from the history of Malcolm X. During those times, it simply meant one major point, feed the need to survive. Songs like “Weed Song,” “No Surrender,” “Thuggish Ruggish Bone” and their Grammy Award winning hit “Tha Crossroads” kept the music industry wanting more.
Let’s be clear, Bone, Thugs –n- Harmony captivated their fans with their niche flavor of synchronize melodies; echoing choir-like beats, combined with hooks taken from the streets. But wait, Bone, Thugs –n- Harmony attracted those music enthusiast with biblical indecisive realities, which lead to spitting out truths to somebody, anybody, everybody who's going through!
