Non-album single, 1996 One of hip-hop’s most powerful mourning anthems put Midwest hip-hop on the map. At the time, Bone Thugs had lost several loved ones, including Eazy E, who signed them in 1993. To this day, when we perform it, said Krayzie Bone, there will be, like, 20 people in the crowd crying.
The album stands heads and shoulders above most other albums released in the late nineties, however. Great synergy between emcees Ryu and Tak, who sound like confident veterans (even though this is their debut). Hard Knock Life is the album that propelled Jay into mainstream pop stardom (selling close to six million units) and is much hated for it.
Love of My Life won a Grammy Award for Best R&B Song and topped Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart for a month, while peaking at on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song was also released as a single from the Brown Sugar soundtrack.
