Rolling Stone magazine’s recently released “100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs” issue has Layzie Bone up in arms.
The veteran Cleveland rapper used Facebook to express his dismay that his group, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, did not have a single song on the list of the highly regarded music publication:
“#RollingStone releases new issue “The 100 Greatest Hip-Hop songs” you mean to tell me not one Bone song made there roster. SMH. First rap group with a Grammy. Over 50 mil sold worldwide and, we contributed a style and harmony that changed hip hop 4eva. They trying to sweep me and my Ni**az under the rug huh. Erase us from history. Nah f**k that and f**k #RollingStone I’m heated #BoneThugsNHarmony #Eternal we still selling out shows 20+ years and counting. B*****S.”
Scores of fans chimed in on the post in support of Layzie and Bone Thugs saying at the very least their 1996 megahit “Tha Crossroads” deserved to make the list.
The Grammy Award-winning song hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and remains the group’s best-selling single with sales of over two million units.
In 2008, VH1 ranked the song at No. 33 on its own 100 Greatest Hip-Hop songs list.
