Bone thugs
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony From Left to Right: Bizzy Bone, Layzie Bone, Wish Bone, and Krayzie Bone.

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is a US rap group from Cleveland, Ohio.

Their career took off in 1993 after heading to Los Angeles on a Greyhound bus in search of rapper Eazy-E. They auditioned over the phone, and Eazy-E said he would call back, but he never did. When the group found out that Eazy-E was performing in Cleveland, they went backstage to audition in person. Backstage, live on The Box, they rapped for Eazy and were signed to Ruthless Records on the spot.

Their first Ruthless release, Creepin on ah Come Up, featured production by Yella of N.W.A fame and was released in 1994. It sold over three million copies and contained the hit singles "Thuggish Ruggish Bone" and "Foe Tha Love of $". Upon the release of their second album E. 1999 Eternal, their mentor Eazy-E died of AIDS. A new track was dedicated to Eazy-E called "Tha Crossroads", which earned the group a Grammy Award and broke The Beatles' 32-year record for fastest rising single. Since then, E. 1999 Eternal has sold over 5 million copies domestically.

Perhaps the group's most important contribution to rap is their speedy, harmonizing flow. While fast rapping has always had a niche in the culture, Bone certainly brought the style to the forefront. The group is well-known for its remarkable ability to harmonize whilst flowing at top speeds. They are significant also as a group that has sung a cappella without a loss of street cred. Although 1996 was the peak of their popular appeal, Bone still has a fairly large cult following. There always seems to be rumors of a breakup (stemming from problems between Bizzy Bone and the rest of the group), yet every two or three years they release an album, in addition to a number of successful solo albums. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are the only group to have collaborated with all three of the late rappers Eazy-E, Tupac Shakur, and the Notorious B.I.G.; as well as featuring on Mariah Carey's 1998 hit single, Breakdown. In 2002, Bone Thugs N Harmony came out with an album called "Thug World Order" and one of their songs called "Home" is featuring Phil Collins. Recently, the group was featured on the remix of Mariah Carey's single "Don't Forget About Us."

Departure of Flesh-N-Bone

In 2000, Flesh-N-Bone was sentenced to 11 years in prison for threatening a friend with an AK-47 assault rifle.

Relationship with Bizzy Bone

In late 2002, Bizzy Bone departed from the group after giving a drunken performance with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony at BB King's Blues Club in New York City. In October 2003, he rejoined the group for the Wicked Wonka Tour with the Insane Clown Posse and soon recorded Bone Brothers, a duet album with Layzie Bone. Things quickly turned sour, though, as Bizzy declined to tour to support the album and refused to sign a record contract with the rest of the group to Swizz Beatz' Full Surface Records. After this and a number of other incidents, the group once again cut ties with Bizzy in May 2005.
