We’re excited to share our recording of “Tha Crossroads”.
On April 23, 1996, up and coming rap group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony released Tha Crossroads. This innovative track blended rap and R&B, combining their signature staccato rap style with touching lyrics about losing a loved one. The song surged through the Billboard charts, reaching #1 on the Hot 100, Rap, and R&B lists.
When we approached doing this song, we spent a long time thinking about how to do it correctly. Our music can often time venture into the realm of “silliness” but for this song, we wanted to do justice to the original subject matter. A song about life and death isn’t a joke and we hope you consider our rendition a poignant nod to a song that had a big impact on our childhood.
We decided to keep a lot of the rhythmic and melodic feel of the tune choosing instead to recreate the backing track with our own unique instrumentation. So, here’s Bones Jugs doing Bone Thugs, complete with bones and a jug. Enjoy!
