The hip-hop and rap music industry has changed a great deal in the last couple of years, and even though rap music in general is extremely popular nowadays, there are different opinions on today’s rap music scene.
Nevertheless, one band that has stayed true to their rap style and has continued to create hardcore hip-hop tracks and studio albums is Bone Thugs N Harmony. And luckily for you, this rap band is on tour once again and now is the best possible time to buy Bone Thugs N Harmony tickets and enjoy their impressive love performances.
Still, before you do so, let’s see which are the best Bone Thugs N Harmony songs of all time.
Foe Tha Love of Money ft Eazy E
Foe Tha Love of Money is a track where this impressive rap band talks about the love they have of making money, while every verse talks about various methods of being able to make money. And as rap music usually consists of such types of lyrics, the common aspect about all the ways that this band outlines for making money is involving violence from haters and the police. Of course, you should most certainly remember that this is a track, not real life and the goal is to have fun, not follow some dangerous steps.
Nevertheless, the music video also features performer Eazy E, which was the last appearance in a music video by him before he unfortunately passed away. Furthermore, this popular song is also used as a soundtrack in the True Crime: Streets of LA video game, and it managed to peak at number 39 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and at number 4 on the US Hot Rap Songs.
I Tried featuring Akon
Yet another popular Bone Thugs N Harmony song, I Tried, is the lead single from the Strength and Loyalty studio album, which was released back in 2007. This famous track features vocals from Akon, who is also a popular performer worldwide, and it talks about the struggles of the artists in the streets.
I Tried debuted at number 82 on the US Billboard Hot 100, but it also managed to peak at number six, which became this rap band’s highest-charting track in ten years. In addition, this great track was certified platinum by the RIAA and it’s still highly popular among the fans of this group.
1st of Tha Month
The 1st of Tha Month is yet another important song on this list, which was the 12th track from the band’s 1995 studio album by the name of E. 1999 Eternal. This famous song by Bone Thugs N Harmony addresses the celebration times in the ghetto when the so-called welfare checks arrive at the beginning of the month, and people have the chance to have some great time with their true friends and beloved families.
This rap song managed to peak at number fourteen on the US Billboard Hot 100, and it became the band’s first top 20 track in their musical career. And that is not all since it also was nominated for a Grammy Award back in 1996 while being certified gold by the RIAA.
Thuggish Ruggish Bone
You may be surprised or you already know, but Thuggish Ruggish Bone is this band’s debut single, which is part also from their debut extended play. And as you can see, Bone Thugs N Harmony love to collaborate with various artists, and the same happened here since this track features vocals by Shatasha Williams, a local singer from Cleveland.
As for the lyrics, you probably can guess that the main themes of the track are based on the fact that the members of the Bone Thugs N Harmony band consider themselves as thugs who are rogue; therefore, ruggish. What makes this song even more impressive are the beautiful singing abilities of Shatasha Williams, whose vocals are more than fantastic.
We have come to the end of this song list, and it is fair to say that the best Bone Thugs N Harmony song is Tha Crossroads, which is most certainly their most popular one. This famous track is a dedication to the mentor of the band, Eazy E, after his passing on. In fact, there was also an earlier version of the track by the name of Crossroads, initially dedicated to Wallace, a friend of Bone’s who also has passed away, but it was remade to Tha Crossroads.
What is impressive is that this track was the highest-debuting rap track since it debuted at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100, and it peaked at number one the next week while staying there for an amazing eight weeks. In addition, this track won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by Duo or Group back in 1997.
So, if you want to listen to these Bone Thugs N Harmony songs live, it is best to buy concert tickets right away and enjoy their excellent live performances.
