Christmas has come early this year: November's rap roster is only something the holiest of hip-hop gods could have bestowed upon our city. While this month's shows don't include as many local hip-hop acts as we like to see, a heap of national acts are coming through, bringing some reggae and R&B vibes with them. This is a great month for some rap music.

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony with AD, Almost Kings, Sir Trigga, Skinny, Yak Boy Fresh, Vince Sega and RIP James at Pop's Nightclub November 7 7 p.m. / $22-$25

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony has been around for a minute. Eazy-E discovered the group in 1993, after the debut of Creepin on ah Come Up, and promptly signed the five-member rap act. Since then the group has ebbed and flowed, with members leaving and re-joining and leaving and re-joining (we're looking at you, Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone). The harmonious thugs are now gearing up for a final album, which will drop in 2015 and only exist as one copy -- better yet, that copy is going to be auctioned off with a starting price of $1 million. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's current tour -- which began in December 2014 -- might very well be one of the group's last.

Ty Dolla $ign with Lil Bibby, Joe Moses, A-Game and MARKOE at the Ready Room November 8 8 p.m. / $20.50-$23

Ty Dolla $ign has been on the come-up since 2010, when he wrote and produced the YG song "Toot It and Boot It." Since then, Ty (who is sometimes just as much of a crooner as a rapper) has become pretty well-versed in the mixtape game, dropping seven tapes from 2011 to 2014 before finally releasing his debut EP Beach House this past January. We're eagerly anticipating his premier studio album, which is supposed to drop sometime in 2014. Year's almost over and we're still waiting, Ty.
