Uni5: The World's Enemy
Critical Mass

by J Gabriel Boylan

This Cleveland-bred quintet has been around for 20 years, but for the past 15, key members Bizzy Bone and the recently incarcerated Flesh-n-Bone often have been absent. The group's eighth album is a defiant reunion, and up-tempo opener "Rebirth" laments pale imitators: "As we continue to pick up the pieces / They follow us Kings till the sundown." It's also more than seven minutes long, one pitfall of having five MCs. Overall, the pace is slower and reflective, but the classic Bone Thugs elements are in place-rapid-fire rhyming, harmonizing, and a preoccupation with the afterlife, particularly on the ethereal "Meet Me in the Sky."
