Creepin on ah Come Up is the debut EP by American hip hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. The album was released on June 21, 1994 on Ruthless Records. In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source's 100 Best Rap Albums.
Bone Thugs-n-Harmony's first album, with the singles "Thuggish Ruggish Bone" and "Foe tha Love of $". Features on the album include Shatasha Williams (the first Mo Thugs member) and their mentor and executive producer Eazy-E, and these collaborations began a new fad of having sung vocals for choruses and tight flowing lyrics. The first two lines of "Intro" are backwards. Played forward are "Heaven in art which Father our, Our Father which art in Heaven" Tracks 3, 4 and 6 have listed, "Keenu Songs" which is "U-Neek" spelled backwards. In The Source (8-97) article "Crossroads To Riches" Bone states that they changed their name to Bone Thugs-n-Harmony because they had a song called "Thugs-N-Harmony".
Parts of "Foe tha Love of $" (including Jewell's backing vocals) are recycled from the Yomo & Maulkie track "For the Love of Money", from their 1991 album Are U Xperienced?. The closing track on Creepin on ah Come Up, "Moe Cheese", is actually the same instrumental track from Are U Xperienced?, also titled "For the Love of Money".
