Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is an American Hip Hop group from the Glenville section of Cleveland, Ohio. They are best known for their fast-paced, aggressive rapping style and harmonizing vocals. The group was mainly produced by Los Angeles producer, DJ U-Neek. In 1997, the group was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance with their song “Tha Crossroads” from their E 1999 Eternal album. Since its conception in 1993, the group has been honored with numerous other awards. Bone Thugs-n-Harmony also collaborated with Eazy-E, 2Pac, Big Pun, and The Notorious B.I.G. being the only artists to work with all of them while they were still alive. They are currently signed to their own label, BTNH Worldwide with a distribution link from Warner Bros.
In 1995 E 1999 Eternal saw Bone diversified its content and musical style. It debuted at #1 with 307,000 copies sold in its first week. The G-Funk style beats were smoothed by DJ U-Neek (with co-production from Tony Cowan and Kenny McCloud). The singles 1st Of Tha Month and Tha Crossroads were both huge successes, the second of which reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. A considerable portion of the album’s concept was built upon violent subject matter, yet Bone also incorporated deeper themes, as its songs dealt with more spirituality and occult mysticism. E 1999 Eternal also introduced Bone’s trademark tracks devoted entirely to the use of marijuana. One of the group’s more commercially successful albums, it has since been certified 6x Platinum by the RIAA and is considered one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time and biggest selling.

Known mostly for their flow, rather than lyricism, Bone’s style and technique can be described as melodic, rapid-fire and aggressive. Their flow is often interwoven at a high speed melodic pace or slow harmonic pace. They also tend to ride the beat that they’re rapping over. Sometimes there are very few choruses separating their verses from one another. In the beginning, circa Faces of Death, Bone used a pseudo-Jamaican patois delivery with their trademark style, though they rarely do this now. Bone’s subject matter has both spiritual and occult undertones (e.g., “Hell Sent”, “Intro”, “Mr. Ouija”, “Mr. Ouija 2″ and “Da Introduction”). At first, their subject matter was almost always exclusively about violence and smoking marijuana. Today, however, their subject matter includes other topics such as urban socio-political issues, their old friend and mentor Eazy-E and religion. Besides minor changes to subject matter and sound, their lyrical style, locution, and overall methodology remain intact.

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony remain one of the most popular groups in hip-hop and continues to have a devoted cult following to this day. The group put Cleveland, Ohio on the hip-hop map and was the first major acts to come from the Midwest.
