Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. A rap group straight out of Cleveland, Ohio
presenting to the world some of the best music. Signed on to Ruthless Records
and put out by legendary Eazy-E
, Bizzy Bone, Krayzie Bone, Layzie Bone, Wish Bone, and Flesh N Bone first hit the scene in 1993/1994. Their debut album E. 1999 Eternal shot up to #1 on the charts with their song "Thuggish Ruggish Bone" as a huge hit. Being struggling artists from the Midwest during the 90s when only New York and Los Angeles record labels were commercially popular, the Bone Thugs boys scraped up some money to catch a bus to Los Angeles. However, it was later in Cleveland did they get the chance to audition backstage for Eazy-E where he signed them on. The unique style of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is a type of vocal harmonizing & fast-paced rapping that was new and will always been known as the 'Bone Thugs' way. Also, the grammar that the boys use in their raps is unique and will always be the 'Bone Thugs' way. The classic 'Tha Crossroads' (radio edit of 'Crossroads') followed great hits such as '1st of the Month' and 'East 1999' which was such a tremendous hit that it won a Grammy for best rap performance in 1996. In 1997 they released 'Art of War' without Flesh N Bone who was never signed onto Ruthless Records. 'Look into my Eyes' & 'If I could teach the World' are hits from this album, however the album didn't meet their audience's expectations. From this album, Bone Thugs members Flesh N Bone, Krayzie Bone, Layzie Bone, and Bizzy Bone released various solo albums until 2000 when they released BTNHRessurection. From then on, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony haven't received public attention as much as they did when they first came out despite continued solo works and a couple of internet albums (only with members Layzie Bone, Krayzie Bone, and Wish Bone) including an album done by Bizzy Bone & Layzie Bone together featuring Wish Bone and Krayzie Bone. Additional information, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are the only and will ever be artists that have performed with Eazy-E, Tupac, and the Notorious B.I.G.
In a personal opinion, music from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is legendary and although underpromoted, every song that includes at least Layzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, Krayzie Bone, and Wish Bone are classics. Everytime I listen to their songs, I remember my peoples from the good days and I think about all the buddha we blazed up. Everytime I blaze up a blunt, I have to put on some Bone Thugs and I'm gonna think of all of the good times and think of my peoples. Listening to Bone Thugs is embedded into the best times of my life. Check them out if you already haven't.
