Throwback Thursday: Bone Thugs-N-Harmony – “1st of tha Month”
It’s the first of tha month, and it’s also a Thursday, so was there really any other choice?
While “Crossroads” is by far the biggest hit in the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony catalog, “1st of tha Month” is arguably just as memorable. Released in June 1995 as the first single from the group’s sophomore set, E. 1999 Eternal, the song is an ode to welfare checks, which are issued on the first day of the month. Because so many other things happen on the first day of every month — like rent payments and other bills — the song has come to mean different things for different people.
Happy first of tha month!
