Respect this album.
Hard to believe Bone Thugs were teenagers when they made this album as it changed the rap game forever. Combining rapping with singing which they pioneered. Even tho Bone showed their rapping and singing flow on their previous EP release "Creepin On Ah Come Up" they expand and fully use it on this album. The beats are mostly produced by which would be their long time producer DJ Uneek which gives the album a dark smooth melodic feel. Combined with Bones flow and singing melodies it complimented each other. Its a classic album and one that catapulted them to super stardom selling over 6 million copies in the US alone, and over 10 million worldwide. This is my favorite rap album, and one that I dont have to skip any tracks. I'll post a few tracks for now, but I'll post the rest tomorrow.

Tha Crossroads (this is the one that was released as a single dedicated to when Eazy-E passed away, and replaced the original when it was re-issued. Not the same song at all as original, different beat, lyrics, flow, everything. Its a different song just with a similar title.)
