Layzie Bone, Mo Thugs
4811 SE Hawthorne Blvd.
[BONE THUG] I can’t lie: I had no idea Layzie Bone (or any other harmonious Thug, for that matter) was still active in 2014. Turns out that, despite his name, Layzie has a massive catalogue, most of which alternates between summer-camp rap—acoustic guitar, laid back lyrics about weed, music and friendship—and ill-conceived “trap,” featuring laughable hooks and electronic production. It’s no surprise the songs that do work allude to his \'90s roots, showcasing gritty beats and Layzie’s sprinting, staccato flow. The question here is whether or not you want to sit through an hour of it for the chance to hear “Crossroads” in the encore.
