The Art of Krayzie Bone's Thug Mentality of '99
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I got this album like in May of 1999, and the flow, the style and the lyrics of the album totally blew me away. 38 Tracks, consisting of 31 Songs and 7 skits. This album will not bore you, it may but not for a long while. Each time I listen to it I still learn something new and feel what Krayzie is talking about. Thug revolution, Armageddon times, preparing for future events, it is truly a survival kit. Just depends on how you interpret it. Best cuts to me were, "Heated Heavy." very fast flow, a fast song, beat is like a techno song. They should've released this as a single. "Street People," was a very good cut, lyrics were very real talking about street mentality, telling the hood to at least try and find an honest way of earning money if it is possible, listen to the words and you'll hear. "World War," another very fast and emotionally anger charged song dedicated to the haters. "The War Iz On," very good track, tight chorus, tight flows from everyone on that song Layzie Bone did a good job on there. Mainly talking about future events and the war, which is coming sooner than most of you think. "When I Die," very tight track featuring Cuban Link and the late Big Pun, Krayzie Bone came through real hard on his last verse and the chorus was just too good. "Thug Alwayz," featuring Layzie, Wish and Flesh Bone well I don't need to tell you why this song was good just another typical Bone Thug n Harmony song. Disc 2 now. "Smokin Buddah," ok well I don't really smoke MJ but this song is so relaxing and so nice a very well done song, nice harmonic flow but like all the other weed songs Bone have come up with, they've all been very well done. "Silent Warrior," a tale about the Last Days and how Krayzie is the Silent Warrior running from the police because of the mark of the beast, staying one step ahead of the so called law and going out with honour when its his time to go. God Souljah style. "Wont ez up Tonight," I didn't really feel the lyric content of this song, but the flow was very fast, a very under-rated song. "I Still Believe," I know many say this song doesn't belong on Thug Mentality, but I thought this song was good, showed a lighter more humble loving type softer side to Krayzie Bone. "We Starvin," Gangsta Boo and E-40 were also featured on this song and made this song complete, and the beat off the 'Young and the Restless,' was well mastered. "Power," a song about Thugs uniting in the Last Days to overcome the evil forces and fight for freedom. Thug Queen adds that little bit extra to the song with a good flow and real lyrics. " That's the Way," true story about Krayzie Bone shooting Wish Bone in the leg by accident while holding up a Liquor Store when they were young, and also how he got arrested and locked up in jail for a period of time regretting what he had done, but it was all about the hustle and a song for the young hustlers trying to make money to make ends meet. A song about taking caution and thinking about the consequences also this song brings you up when you're feeling down. Its a very deep song and shows feeling and love for the hustlers because he knows its hard but that's just the way. "Armageddon," a very frightening Biblical-Revelation type song about the end of the world, and is preparing you for Judgement Day, a very hard hitting religious type song with prophetical type lyrics from Krayzie, Souljah Boy and a very strong intro to the song by Thug Queen. Mo Hart ending the song with a strong possessed type sermon to enforce the message of the song. While the beat and music is freaky and almost gothic like, a song very well done. "Murda Mo," Krayzie talks about well its a bit obvious, but its how you interpret the song I think its a song about respect, like you respect me and I'll leave you alone, if you don't then the war is on. Very tight flow with murda mo repeated a bit too much but it sounds good I guess it went with the formula of the song. Instrumental of the song is nice, from the Art of Noise. "Revolution," a tight song featuring the Marley Brothers a very good soft way of ending the album, reggae and hip-hop mixed together to perfection.
All and all the album is definitely worth every cent, outlining this thugsta's mentality, war-like mentality, prophetical in-sights on future events that have yet to come. A good album with many ideas that will leave you wondering on what is really going on in the world. A good strategic, survival kit type album.
Flow = 5/5
Lyrical Content = 4.9/5

"i had this album since its release in march of 1999,and i'm verry late reviewing it.this album is one of those rare cases where it's good quality all the way through despite being a double disc album.and i personally found NO filler in this album.wich isn't really a shock considering the talent behind the record.soon as they anounced solo albums in the booklet of mo'thug 2 family reunion people have been heavily anticipating their solos,even before then.and krayzie bone sure as hell don't dissapoint you either on this fine ofter ovelook cd.
theres something for everybody on this album,and also alot of interesting expirementations aswell.it also doesn't hurt that theres a HUGE guest list with rappers like,Treach,8ball & mjg,snoop,kurupt,gangsta boo,E-40,the terror squad,the marley brothers,thugline artists,and of course the other bone thugs members (sans bizzy).
the album is none stop in its agression,from the epic intro to the last revolutionary song on disc 2.
stand out trax
ALL OF THEM!!lol it might be my bias but i personally loved every-last-song-on here period.
krayzie bone's flow and delivery is so versatile you never get tired of him.he has so much vocal range you could just listent to him none stop.and thats VERRY rare for a rapper.buy this album you won't regret it."
