CLEVELAND, Ohio –Over the past few years, there have been several reports that Bone Thugs-N-Harmony was all but done making new music and touring with its original members. However, recent news suggests otherwise.
Last month, the members of Bone Thugs announced plans for a new album that will feature all five members (a rarity these days). There’s just one catch: There will only be one copy of the album made, which will go to the highest bidder.
The idea is very similar to one the Wu-Tang Clan put forth earlier this year. Wu-Tang leader Rza said the idea of a secret, one-copy album being put up for auction was inspired by Jay Z’s last album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” essentially being funded by Samsung.
On Monday, Bone Thugs member Krayzie Bone told website HipHopDX.com that the group’s one-copy album, “E. 1999/Legends,” has already received a bid of $1 million.
The announcement is part of a revival for Krayzie Bone and company. Bone Thugs has also announced plans for a world tour that will kick off in December. The group has yet to announce the tour’s itinerary, but does have a few one-off shows scheduled through September.
Meanwhile, Krayzie Bone released the first album of his “Chasing The Devil” trilogy on July 22. Fellow member Layzie Bone’s latest solo album, “Perfect Timing,” is set for release later this year.
