Many of hip-hop’s recent hits are either introspective meditations on tough times or motivational records urging listeners to rise above hardships and build a better future. Life! A Lesson to Learn, the newly-released lead single off Krayzie Bone‘s impending solo release, is, well, both—producer Position fills the record with downbeat, tension-fraught ambience (as well as providing hook and backing vocals), while the Bone brother reflects on his past trials and tribulations, the chaos that currently reigns in the music game and beyond, and the potential for a brighter tomorrow; the result is a complex cut with a unique, haunting sound, in which the pervasive darkness makes the possibility of redemption seem all the more real. Though the newly-reunited Bone Thugs and their forthcoming Uni-5 LP are, understandably, creating a massive buzz, fans shouldn’t sleep on Krayzie’s forthcoming Just One More Hit, set to drop March 24th via Thug Line/RBC Records.
