When Bone Thugs emerged from Cleveland with 1994's Creepin On Ah Come Up, they sounded like no one before. The quintet was a true original, a hybrid of G-funk violence, R&B melodies and horrorcore raps. "Dear Mr. Ouija, I want to know my future/ Will I die of murder, of bloody murder?" they sing amid lyrics of blunts, rock slanging and hollow-point bullets. "No Surrender" has echoes of ragamuffin ("Me killa," chants Layzie Bone). True to form, mentor Eazy-E adds a clumsily unforgettable verse on "Foe Tha Love Of $," and sadly, it was his last: He died of AIDS the following spring.
