13. Bone Thugs-n-Harmony "1st of tha Month"
On the first of the month, you promise to get in the gym again, pay your rent, and vow to save a little more on this round of paychecks. Bone Thugs, au contraire, hits the corner with the intent of pumping narcotics, because the first of the month is also the day everyone recieves their welfare checks (and thus, has the money to spend on said drugs). Or at least: they did a decade ago. The grind and hustle of those endeavors went on to become the basis for the crew's first big single, which went gold and earned itself a 1996 Grammy nod, after peaking at the 14th spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
