Just taking a stroll down memory lane. I know some of y'all checked BTNHboard and Steve's website for news after bonethugsnharmony.com stopped being updated, lol. When MySpace wasn't dependent and the boom of YouTube wasn't in existence I remember going on BizzyBoneMusic.com and BTNHcentral before coming to BTNHboard.
All of us here at A2Z Entertainment give our condolences to Bizzy Bone and his family for the loss of CAPO R.I.P. Stay strong Bizzy!
Mo Thugs IV dropped yesterday; make sure to pick your copy up!
Bone has recorded new track with a new artist in the industry, his name is GAME. He’s a fresh new artist from Compton, CA and is signed to Dr. Dre’s label Aftermath. Bone really clicked with GAME because GAME is original and he talks a lot about Eazy-E. He gives his shouts, condolences and thanks to Eazy-E (which many artist today don’t do). You’ll be able to find Bone Thugs~n~Harmony on GAME’s up coming mix tape.
Krayzie Bone will be on the Tupac Movie Soundtrack entitled Resurrection
Layzie Bone and Krayzie Bone just finished a few more songs for the Bone & Outlawz collab album entitled Thug Brothers.
The Krayzie Bone track (One Day At A Time feat. The Outlawz) ended up not making the Tupac: Resurrection soundtrack and the Bone/Outlawz album ended up being just a Layzie & Noble record, released in late-2006.
Its official, Bone Thugs~n~Harmony is finally off their Ruthless Records Contract. We?ve know this for over two weeks now, however, Steve Lobel didn?t want to leak it out until he had the paper work in front him saying Bone is off of Ruthless Records. We?re FREE!!!!!
When Tomica took over she immediately got rid of everybody and kept Bone (confirmed by Arabian Prince on VladTV). They were the final artists with ties to Eazy's era. Ruthless released Bone’s Greatest Hits a year later and stayed on the Billboard 200 for almost a year (47 weeks). Ruthless went on to sign Hopsin, Stevie Stone, and 2-3 more acts in 2007 in an attempt to relaunch. As of today Ruthless is still operating probably just collecting Bone/NWA streaming residuals and other publication royalties. The lights are on, but nobody is home...
The Bone Thugs~n~Harmony tour is under way. ICP are the headliners, so get to the show early because Bone Thugs go on before ICP. The order of performance is Tech 9ne, Kottonmouth Kings, Bone Thugs, and then ICP. Some cities may have different order.
The next project you can expect from the Bone camp is another Bone Thugs album. Bone thugs will have a studio set up on the bus, and they will be recording throughout the tour. On the next album we’ll have a lot of new producers, big name producers. Expect 2004 to be a real big year for Bone Thugs.
While on tour the Outlawz will join Bone Thugs on the road for about a week to finish recording tracks for the up coming Bone Thugs & Outlawz collaboration album Thug Brotherz. They will Join Bone on the second week of the tour. Also, Bone Thugs have a small break on the tour, so October 18-20 Bone Thugs & Steve Lobel will be in New York networking recording tracks for an upcoming album.
As you all know Bone Thugs is off their Ruthless Records contract. We don’t know where Bone new home will be. But, as soon as we know all of you will be the first to know. Ignore all the rumors you’ve heard going around.
Tech N9ne secured a long-term deal for Strange Music with Fontana Distribution (now INgroove) and has since dominated the independent scene and maintained a relationship with the thugs (Midwest Choppers 2, Speed of Sound, references in MMM, Bone opening up for him in Fresno for the Strictly Strange Tour 2017). And the new home for Bone turned out to the Full Surface and Interscope.
Layzie Bone is almost done with his rock record. Major props go out to Romeo Antonio who is making it all happen. We spoke to Romeo and this is what he said:
Lay's rock record is way off the chain, getting rave sneak preview reviews from Rolling Stone Mag. This one is going to put HIM back on top. The movie is called "No Rules' I am the Producer of the movie, It stars, Pamala Anderson, Gary Busy, Tom Siezmore, Frank Shamrock, David Dunn, Randy Cotour, and a gang of UFC fighters. I also brought in Brian Russell, Gary Payton, and Shaq of the lakers to do major cameo's and speaking parts. Layzie has a main part inclucing speaking parts a great fight scene and stage performance scene. I'm bout to blow him up! Besides producing the entire film i'm also doing the musical score and the sountrack.
What was meant to be God's Speed (rock rap album) ended up getting scrapped when he couldn't clear the big named samples (ie Man In A Box, Welcome To The Jungle). Take A Trip (Feat. Thin C) made it on Startin From Scratch: How A Thug Was Born and Fight (Feat. Thin C) leaked, but we never heard of that project again.
Swizz Beatz and Bone Thugs~n~Harmony aren't no joke. Right now their trying to figure out what machine to go with. There's no rush on the project because with a collaboration this hot the Thugs are going to watch their every step. Watch out for a press conference that will give you all the information, coming soon.
It's the Biggie Duets! Krayzie Bone blesses the new Biggie album, The Final Chapter, with "Spit Yo Game", resurrecting "*No-tori-ous* Thugs," along side Twista, 8Ball & MJG. Watch MTV2 for the Making of the Video while Swizz drops it on the 106 n' Park crew where the livest audience on television show their love for the true thugs that put it down in the game
Krayzie Bone takes it to the South and hooks up with Chamillionaire for the single "Ridin' Dirty", the next single of of Chamillionaire's album, The Sound of Revenge. Look out for the video to be airing in the next week or two. Call and drop your request for the single at your local radio station.
Interscope Records has just signed their newest aritst, Mrs., to the label, and Bone Thugs collaborates with the new artist to bring you a re-make of the classic "1st of da Month".
Swizz Beatz makes a cameo appearance in the Hip Hop Baby video (New York show at BB Kings) in early 2005 which started the rumors of him interested in signing Bone. Krayzie finally links up with Twista for The Notorious BIG's Duets: The Final Chapter and gets his redemption from being cut on Tupac: Resurrection soundtrack with Untouchable on Pac's Life (both songs assisted by Swizz Beatz). Krayzie goes on a guest featuring spree in 2005-06 and wins a Grammy in Feb 2007 for Ridin. Missez gets dropped from Interscope and Out Of Time gets re-recorded by Layzie's wife Felecia
