After the debacle that was Weezy‘s rock debut, I expected the word “Rebirth” to fade from popular music’s lexicon for a good, long while – the associations are just too painful to dredge up. Well, I was wrong. Like a phoenix, “Rebirth” has risen from the ashes to be reborn as the title of the second single off Bone Thugs-n-Harmony‘s long-awaited reunion album. This cut, which comes backed by the cinematic string-synth boardwork of Pooh Bear & King David, finds Krayzie, Bizzy, Layzie, Wish and Flesh singing a different tune than their last feature, the hard-partying Vegas. Here, the Bone brothers state their intent to turn the game upside-down and leave same-old, same-old rappers in the dust, delivering their uncompromising lyrical message in the rapid-fire flows fans know and love. Is Rebirth a worthy follow-up to the reader-acclaimed See Me Shine? You be the jury. Uni:5 The World’s Enemy is currently set to drop March 2, but fans shouldn’t be surprised if the long-awaited album is delayed – keep it locked to DJBooth for all the latest release details.
