East 99 is where you find me slanging that yayo.

This vid brings back memories my nigs. I remember watching this on MTV as a little whipper snapper in like 5th grade. This video was my first foray into the world of Bone Thugs N Harmony, and I am a more enlightened rap aficionado because of it. Its got that G-funk west coast sound to it. Look how young these cats were back in the day, and check out the cameo by the Godfather of Gangsta Rap Eazy E. Props to Eazy for discovering Bone Thugs. Just think how much flavor the game would have been lacking had Eazy not put these dudes on. I remember when Eazy died, that shit was devastating to me because he was one of the first rappers I listened to. Shouts out to Ice T as well. I don't want to shortchange anyone here because a very compelling case can be made that he was the godfather of gangsta rap as well. At any rate we pay our respects to all of the above. Enjoy!

And I can't forget my favorite Eazy Vid. I can't think of any harder bass intro to a song ever.

Old School Bone Thugs Interview with Joe Clair. This shit is dusty grimy gully.
