Thug Life

Listening to some '90s rap music is like mowing your lawn with a hamburger. It's satisfying, but when it's done, you're left with a feeling that nothing has been accomplished. Now, this analogy may not make sense to anybody but me, but just think about it for a minute. The songs are catchy, the lyrics are, at times, disposable and you are left wanting more. This is not true for all '90s rap of course. This was also the golden age that birthed Outkast and Ludacris, but for every Dr. Dre there was an M.C. Hammer. So where do Bone Thugs-N-Harmony fit in to this labyrinth of creativity? Honestly, that is a judgment call that I just can't make. I do know that member Flesh-N-Bone is in a prison for weapons charges and that they were discovered and signed by Eazy-E. So, you will have to decide when they play the House of Blues, 2200 N. Lamar St., Sunday. Doors are at 7 p.m.; show at 8 p.m. Call 214-373-8000 or visit
Sun., June 10, 7 p.m.
