Nelly, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Juvenile will perform at 7 p.m at AT&T Field on Thursday, May 3. Tickets are $34–$69 and are available here.  

Review for Bone Thugs-N-Harmony:

With their unique signature sound, Bone Thugs n Harmony are recognized as one of the most influential and successful American hip hop groups of all time. It consists of rappers Layzie Bone, Flesh n Bone, Wish Bone, Krayzie Bone, and Bizzy Bone. American West Coast rapper Eazy-E signed Bone Thugs n Harmony to Ruthless Records in late 1994 when the group debuted with their EP, ‘Creepin on ah Come Up’. The EP included their breakout hit single, “Thuggish Ruggish Bone”. 

In 1995, the group released its second album, ‘E. 1999 Eternal’, which included hits "1st of tha Month" and "East 1999”. A tribute to then-recently deceased Eazy-E, titled "Tha Crossroads”, won a Grammy Award in 1997. ‘The Art of War’, the group's third album, was also released in 1997.

Bone Thugs is the only group that has worked with 2 Pac, Notorious B.I.G., Eazy-E and Big Pun while they were still alive. The editors of About.com ranked them #12 on their list of the "25 Best Rap Groups of All Time", and MTV called them "the most melodic hip-hop group of all time". 

In 2000, ‘BTNHRessurection’ went platinum in one month, while 2002's ‘Thug World Order’ went gold and peaked at #3 on the Top R&B/ Hip-Hop Albums chart. After that album, the group went on hiatus from their label and released their sixth studio album, ‘Thug Stories’ independently in 2006. In 2007 they had another major-label release, ‘Strength & Loyalty on Swizz Beatz’s label Full Surface Records. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony "officially" returned with their 2010 album ‘Uni5: The World’s Enemy’ released by their own record label, BTNH Worldwide with distribution by Warner Bros.

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony have been one of the most successful hip-hop groups selling over 50 million records.

Roy Exum: Hope, Not Judgment

In the last years of my mother’s blessed life, she would watch two or three TV preachers in the afternoons. She adored it and darn near memorized the messages. Of course, I would kid her, asking how many of the viewers did she imagine would sip on a glass of “communion” during the telecasts. Oh, mother would never over-imbibe, not in a million years, but the combination of a great ... (click for more)
