Ken Bone's Greatest Gift Was Bringing Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Back Into The Spotlight1 min read
CLEVELAND IS THE CITY THAT WE COME FROM…SO RUN, RUN
I’m new to the Toledo area and the hardest part of adjusting to life here is the music affiliation scene. I have to hate John Denver so that wasn’t the biggest hurdle but then let’s just look at a map.
I am considerably closer to Detroit than I am to Cleveland. Hell, the rugby team I play for is in the Michigan union instead of Ohio. In a sense, I’m a man without a country. I wanna play by the rules and stay loyal to my soil (I’ve lived here for almost a month) but there isn’t really a great Toledo music scene that made it mainstream. I could be another Stan and ride with Slim Shady but that directly conflicts with me being a Juggalo
A turf war between D 12 and ICP is the last thing I need right now.
So we can put a line through that right now. Danny Brown or Big Sean might be a safe De-Troit pick but I’m looking east to the Land. MGK is a badass but he wouldn’t have a pot to piss if it weren’t for Bone.
Enter Kenneth Bone. Dude set the internet on fire and then some. Golly pops, just look at twitter for 2 minutes. And in that maelstrom of memes (wow, nice) came the natural marriage between a portly, mustachioed chum and BOOM, the rap group that I’ve been repping FOREVER gets re-catapulted to the moon. Little victories, fellas, little victories.
