We gave it a B+

Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony’s main man gets millennial with a 38-track double CD, the best solo release so far from one of the Ohio speed rappers. Like a rap Nostradamus, Krayzie Bone prophesizes gangsta apocalypse on cuts like ”World War” and ”Armageddon.” In Thug Mentality 1999, he also makes time for Prince-style shockadelica (”Knieght Rieduz”), an acoustic jam (”Smoke & Burn”), and cameos ranging from Snoop Dogg and Big Pun to Mariah Carey and ”the Marley Brothers.” Now, that’s crazy… B+
