Perhaps there’s no such thing as coincidence. Just when I started to wonder whatever happened to Bone Thugs N Harmony, someone posted a post on Twitter about them releasing new music. As I’ve often blogged here, I’m not the world’s biggest fan of hip hop, especially today’s hip hop. However, there was a time I did pay attention to it and Bone Thugs N Harmony were among my favorites. It wasn’t just the big fluffy hair that made them stand out. Their speedy raps on a slow time beat made a major impact on hip hop and r&b that can still be heard today.
I actually didn’t expect that you could still be hearing new Bone Thugs N Harmony music today. The group started as a four piece but lost members along the way, then reunited, then lost members again and that’s where you lose me ‘cos I stop following what’s happening. In 2017, however, they appear to back as a rap duo.
The guys have been releasing new videos for about two months now, leading into the release of an upcoming album, “New Waves”, that is due out on June 23rd and already available for pre-order.
