It’s February and as we kick start the second month of the year 2016 it’s only right that we welcome the week with our #MusicMonday choice courtesy of Bone Thugs N Harmony – “1st Of Tha Month”.

Taken from their top selling album ‘E.1999 Eternal’ the Bone Thugs surely impressed music lovers with their second album under the guidance of NWA’S late great Easy E, representing for the West Coast the group dominated the charts with their tribute song ‘Crossroads’ dedicated to Easy E earning them a Grammy award in 1997.

Hip Hop heads and die hard music lovers across London Groove Soul Saturdays parties always make reference to this Bone Thugs N Harmony classic whenever a new month starts, so as today is Monday 1 st February our #MondayMotivation is the laidback anthem “1st Of Tha Month”. Produced by DJ U-Neek who also produced the Grammy winning ‘Crossroads’.

1st of Tha Month was released on June 15st 1995 and samples Anita Baker’s “I Just Want To Be Your Girl”, plus makes an interpolation of Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’ by using the chant ‘Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up’ whilst motivating people on welfare to get up and get their start of the month welfare checks.

Comedians such as Chris Rock made fun of this song during one of his stand up shows “n*g*as vs black people” calling ‘1st of Tha Month’ a ‘Welfare Carol’ whilst rappers such as The Game sampled the song and computer games like Grand theft Auto V featured it on their West Coast classics radio station.

1st of Tha Month was certified Gold selling over 500,000 copies and earned a Grammy Nomination with UK fans supporting the single to enter the top 20 of the UK Charts. The Video was laid back like the guys crusining in the back of the car with Krayzie Bone rhyming on the car bonnet, and 20 years later the crew continue to tour with this timeless material.

Despite many calling the song a welfare anthem, it actually motivates people to ‘wake up, get up’ and get money hence why it’s the perfect Monday Motivation anthem. Easy E didn’t only create a legacy with Ruthless Records by launching NWA to the world, he also left us with classic Bone Thugs n Harmony anthems with their unique style of rhyming with melody (although subtitles are always needed to decode the speed rap) lol.
