If I Could Teach the World by Bone Thugs

"But nobody knows when it all unfolds."

Artwork for The Art of War

Originally, “If I Could Teach the World” was gonna be my first feature from Bone Thugs, but “Ghetto Cowboy” is what got me into the group, so I had to put that out first. I’ve been listening to Bone Thugs since middle school, but not by choice – my friends loved ’em, but I did not. Actually, I didn’t even start appreciating hip-hop until my late high school/college years, and didn’t get into Bone Thugs until I heard Ghetto Cowboy a few years later.

“If I Could Teach the World” is my more recent favorite of Bone Thug’s. It may be the only song, wait, the only thing on earth that could make me feel like a thugsta. And if you ask anyone who knows me, they’d probably say that I’m the farthest thing from a thugsta there could be. Just me saying thugsta right now, sounds completely foolish in my head. …But all kidding aside, the song is a passionate, soul-searching piece that everyone should give a listen to, even us not-so-thugstas.

“If I could teach the whole wide world to be a thug-n-harmony, then i would teach the whole wide world to be a thugsta just like me.”
