Pairing G-funk beats over a signature mix of interwoven verses and harmonizing choruses, all while addressing gangsta-style subject matter of mortality, murder, drugs and money, Cleveland collective Bone Thugs-N-Harmony made an impressive, if short-lived, name for itself with its 1995 debut, “E1999 Eternal.” Despite scoring hits with its standout tracks “1st of the Month,” and the Grammy Award-winning “Tha Crossroads,” the group's success became troubled with a series of unsuccessful solo outings and collaborations. Making a rightful comeback to their faithful fans, the original five members reunited earlier this year for the first time in a decade to release “Uni5: The World Enemy.” Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will perform at the Hat Factory on Thursday, Oct. 14, at 8 p.m. $25-$30. 788-4281. — Mike Hilleary
