Bizzy Bone

The Midwest Cowboy (Real Talk)

by

Which camp has released the most product over the past dozen years, the Wu-Tang Clan or Bone Thugs-N-Harmony? The smart money's on the Wu crew, but this is already Bizzy Bone's third album of 2006 and sounds it. Producer Playalitical sets nearly every track to the stuttering, double-time rhythm the Thugs made famous, and aside from the pillow-talking R&B of "Lovey, Dovey," the skimpy melodies blur one song into the next. Even Bizzy's famed eccentricity is in short supply; he confesses to missing his Bone Thug brethren on "It's the Light," but the bad blood that split the group is rarely roiled.
