Bizzy Bone drops a new album that isn’t too great overall. His bars on this aren’t too great. There really aren’t any memorable lines that people are going to be playing back over and over again. I think with every Bone Thugs album, fans want to get that original sound back, but we just can’t seem to get it back. He has a ton of features from his son Lil Bizzy that are just as lackluster as his own rhymes. The music on here is pretty simplistic. There weren’t really any joints on here that I just wanted to hear over and over again. All in all, this was a pretty poor job on an album. Hopefully we see some improvement on any future projects. It’d be great to hear more melodic joints like we got in the past.
Bizzy Bone drops a new album that isn’t too great. On the mic, he spits his normal, fast-paced bars. Everyone wants that old classic Bone Thugs sound, but it seems that they just can’t seem to recapture those melodies. There are times throughout this album where Bizzy almost sounds like he used to back in the days, but we just don’t seem to get any songs on the level of the classics. The beats on here are probably the better part of the album. I think there are some decent tracks that are at least hitting for par. There really isn’t anything that is going to go on repeat though. This isn’t an album for everyone and it might not even be for hardcore Bone fans either. We’re hoping for better music later.
Bizzy Bone drops a new album which is a little bit disappointing. With his last few solo albums, he hasn’t really given us something that will be classic or memorable. The one thing I do recognize is that he was attempting to get that classic, melodic, and harmonic Bone Thugs N Harmony sound back. He definitely tried to recapture some of that, but I think he fell short. His bars aren’t really anything rewind-worthy. There aren’t really any infectious hooks going on. The beats are pretty substandard across the board. He’s definitely a veteran and definitely worthy of respect, but with this particular project, he just didn’t really translate any kind of a worthy sound. Hoping that future projects will get better.
Bizzy Bone hits us with another album and this one is not all that. As far as his bars, he has his old flow from the Bone Thugs days and spits at a rapid pace, but there really isn’t much content throughout the album. I think he has the potential to make a dope album, but he has to go more of the melodic route instead of trying to be so weird all of the time. The production on here is below average to average. There really isn’t anything I heard sonically that blew me away. It was pretty sub standard all around. The one highlight on here is “Bizzy Unplugged” in which he strips down the track and just raps some real stuff over it. It actually sounds really good and reminds me of Tupac’s “Thug Mansion.” All in all, this is a bit of a weaker album, but maybe real Bone Thugs fans will appreciate it.
Bizzy Bone gives us an album and after listening to it, we decided we didn’t want it at all. This album is straight trash. I do realize that Bizzy is a veteran and had his time in the sun, but this project is lacking in so many areas. His whiny voice makes it hard to listen to the entire way through. There really isn’t any semblance of any lyrical ability. The beats are shoddy and uninteresting at best. The only song I might give a little credit to would be “Remember What Eazy Said” featuring Blais. This song definitely pays homage to the late great Eazy E as he was Bone Thugs mentor. Other than that, there isn’t really too much that is salvageable on this album. Throw this one straight in the garbage. C’mon Bizzy, you can do better than this man. Let the harmonies out again.
At first listen, it sounds like this might just be some throw away tracks from Bone Thugs, but it actually gets better as it goes along. Bone Thugs has always been known for their gangster but melodic and harmonizing flow. That is what they flawlessly executed in the 90s, so most people want to hear more of that from them. I think this project sounds more of like their experimenting. Some of it didn’t work and some of it sounds like it could work. The first half of the album definitely sounds like throw away songs. As it goes along though, you can hear how they were trying some new things. They definitely sound great vocally and when you put them over different style beats, it actually turns out pretty good. “Stay Outta Mine” has a great upbeat feel to it and really sounds uplifting. “Remember Yesterday” has a sped up sample that is kind of reminiscent of the Heatmakerz or Kanye West style and Bone actually sounds pretty decent over it. They also have some club banger type records on here that sounded a little different than normal, but actually worked for them. For any true Bone Thug fans, you will definitely want to hear this project to see how they sound in a variety of ways.
One half of the Bone brothers drop a project off for us and I have mixed feelings on this one. Right off the bat, I can easily say that Bizzy Bone sounds tired as hell and doesn’t sound good at all anymore. He used to have such a melodic flow back in the 90s, but nowadays, he sounds like a washed-up has-been. Lyrically he offers nothing at all. Layzie was a little bit better, but at the same time, it sounds weird hearing 40 something year old rappers still talk about the streets and guns and such. That aside, When they add Krayzie Bone to the mix, I think they get better results. I always thought that he was the hardest worker out of all of them. There are some songs with them all together that sounds like they might have something cooking. I think it is just an incredibly hard feat to reboot this Bone Thugs sound to the level that it was at in the mid 90s. So in summary, lyrics weren’t too great on this record. Beats were ok at best. Definitely not their best release, but you can still see that little glimmer of hope in there somewhere.
Krayzie Bone and Bizzy Bone released this project together under the name Bone Thugs which is a slight variation on Bone Thugs N Harmony. Krayzie was probably always the hardest working and most dedicated out of the group. This album wasn’t too bad. I think I could see the direction they were trying to go. I don’t know if they quite got there but it was a good effort. They are missing some of the more melodic and popular singles that they have released in the past. Instead they try to put out more inspiring and uplifting music with a message, but I think some of the songs just fall short. All in all this is not a bad release. If you are a fan of Bone Thugs, you’ll probably dig it. If you are expecting to hear Thuggish Ruggish Bone and Crossroads, you are not going to get that at all.
