Break Yo’ TV: Bone Thugs-n-Harmony – “Crossroads”

At one point or another, we all have to look back at something we loved. We must then revel in how serious it was taken at the time. For example, the pictures from 1992, when we thought three lines shaved in our eight-year-old heads looked cool, or maybe you had a particular affection for a certain bowl cut that used to make you look like Kurt Cobain.

Bone Thugs -n- Harmony is similar in that respect. First of all, let’s take a moment to appreciate the particular brand of insatiable, albeit difficult to understand, rap provided by this group. Mixing together mysticism, religion, real world problems, and Eazy-E (sphinx-like in the side of a brick wall, or not) seemed fitting. Wow, those were the days.

Take heed audience, for I have once again brought a FAIL of epic proportion, taking on the hard hitting truth that we will all meet each other at “tha crossroads.” That’s right Wish Bone, step up to death. You need not worry, for his fateful touch will not turn your eyes black like so may others before (including Uncle Charles, man, I’ll miss my Uncle Charles). For you, stand before the alter of the great Cadillac during what was known as the Orange Sky apocalypse. You hold the knowledge, you hold the key, and you’re …. gonna miss everybody, you’re gonna miss everybody, you’re gonna miss everybody.

While we’re at it, why is it that everybody can see death? I mean really, what the hell kind of representation of death are you if even the interracial couples can see you? They have not witnessed the Orange Sky, nor have they stood before the holy Cadillac. The angel of death isn’t supposed to be seen, or wear “pre-Laurence-Fishburne-Matrix” sunglasses.

All in all, it’s a touching tribute to Eazy. After we’ve seen his apparition and the Orange Skies have turned to a bright blue, we’ll all hang our dreads in sadness and  “mooove on… moooooooove on.”
