In the year 1996, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony released “Tha Crossroads,” a song about trying to come to terms with losing loved ones prematurely due to street violence by using the promise of reconnecting with them in the afterlife as consolation.
The song was a huge hit, launching Bone Thugs into stardom.
Flash forward twenty years later to 2016. YouTube user isthishowyougoviral mashes “Tha Crossroads” with the cast of Sesame Street. It features Grover as Bizzy Bone, Elmo as Layzie Bone, Cookie Monster as Krayzie Bone, and Telly as Wish Bone.
The results are hilarious, but oddly moving as well. isthishowyougoviral describes it as “by far, the toughest song choice out of all the mashups I’ve ever created, but it’s one of the best rap songs ever, so it had to be done.”
