Bone Thugs-N-Harmony

Biography

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony is a Grammy award winning hip hop group from Cleveland, Ohio. It consists of rappers Layzie Bone, Flesh-n-Bone, Bizzy Bone, Krayzie Bone, and Wish Bone. Rapper Eazy-E, former member of rap group N.W.A, signed Bone Thugs-n-Harmony to Ruthless Records in late 1993, when Bone Thugs debuted with EP "Creepin on ah Come Up". The EP included the hit single "Thuggish Ruggish Bone".

In 1995, the group released its second album, "E. 1999 Eternal", which included hits "1st of tha Month" and "East 1999." A tribute to the recently deceased Eazy-E, "Tha Crossroads", won a Grammy award in 1997. "The Art of War", the group's third album, was also released in 1997. Bone Thugs is also the only group that has worked with deceased artists 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G., Eazy-E & Big Pun while they were still alive.

In 2000, "BTNHResurrection" reached platinum in one month and "Thug World Order" (2002) received more moderate sales and promotion. After the album the group went on hiatus and released their sixth studio album "Thug Stories" independently before returning in 2007 with the major label release "Strength & Loyalty", this time released by Swizz Beatz's label Full Surface Records. Bone Thugs-n-Harmony officially returned with their new album "Uni-5: The World's Enemy", released in 2010 by their own record label, BTNH Worldwide, with distribution by Warner Bros.

Due to internal conflicts with the group, longtime members Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone officially left the group in April 2011 to work with their independent label, The Life Ent. However, in 2012, Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone claimed they never really left and were in a state of mind where everything felt hopeless, thus claiming to quit. They would later return, officially re-unifying the group.
