For the love of Money

Growing up I was really into this group called Bone Thugs N Harmony.  They were the pioneers of tongue twisting rap, where they would flow out super quick rhymes and make it sound really easy and smooth.  It was actually pretty impressive!  One year they came out with a song called “For the Love of…
