Thug Mentality 1999 (1999)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Krayzie Bone; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Like a rap Nostradamus, Krayzie Bone prophesizes gangsta apocalypse on cuts like ''World War'' and ''Armageddon.'' In Thug Mentality 1999, he also makes time for Prince-style shockadelica (''Knieght Rieduz''), an acoustic jam (''Smoke & Burn''), and cameos ranging from Snoop Dogg and Big Pun to Mariah Carey and ''the Marley Brothers.'' Now, that's crazy... B+
