  • The thuggish-ruggish Bone

No Offense to Easy Duz It, but West Coast pioneer Eazy-E’s greatest gift to hip-hop was as a scout for talent, signing Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and a very young to his Ruthless label in its golden era run. In 1994, Eazy-E plucked Bone Thugs-n-Harmony from the rap void of Cleveland, putting the Ruthless stamp on Bone Thugs’ debut Creepin' on ah Come Up. With the album’s 21st birthday in June, Creepin' is a seminal blast in the genre. “Thuggish Ruggish Bone” is a shirtless g-funk wonder, with each member of the quintet taking home run swings at the big California rhythm. Half-sung and weaving in and out of double-time, the early Bone Thug hits laid down the concrete for the sing-song interstate that Drake, ILoveMakonnen and A$AP Rocky cruise down in 2015. There’s no “Tuesday” without “1st of tha Month.” As an added bonus, Bone will be performing E. 1999 Eternal in its entirety. With B-Real, Bun B, El Gant, Sid Wilson from Slipknot, Joey G, Kurtanz, Scarface. $36-$151, 7pm, Alamo City Music Hall, 1305 E. Houston St., (210) 698-2856
