Bizzy Bone

Live in Concert DVD (MVD)

Bizzy Bone
If the three albums he's dropped this year haven't kept you Bizzy enough, then a live DVD from the estranged Bone Thugs-N-Harmony MC should be just the thing. Unfortunately, that volume of product suggests Bizzy's become a fans-only proposition, and this amalgam of two live shows from 2005 (one of them a hometown gig at Peabody's) confirms it. Tinny audio and abrupt segues sell short some deserving solo hits, including a still-impressive trio of tunes from Bizzy's 1998 debut, Heaven'z Movie.

The best feature is the between-songs, backstage freestyling that's sometimes funny and occasionally inspired. But even those bonus rhymes from Bizzy's machine-gun tongue aren't enough to make this a suitable Christmas gift for anyone but the BT&H completist.
