Throwback Friday #3 – Welcome to Cleveland

Started in Cleveland in 1991, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony quickly rose to success after linking up with Eazy-E in 1994 to release Creepin on ah Come Up. “Tha Crossroads,” was on their sophomore album E. 1999 Eternal. A tribute to the recently deceased Eazy-E, this Grammy winning song was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, 15 years ago today. Being from Cleveland myself, I will always love Bone, and this song is one of their best.
