Layzie Bone doesn’t just rap fast, as a member of the tongue-twisting group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony — he also acts fast when he sees someone in need.
He was compelled to do just that recently while in Wyoming on a tour stop, while traveling from Casper to Riverton, when he saw a man driving out-of-control.
“He started swerving,” Layzie explained to Wyoming’s K2TV. “We like, Oh, my god, this guy’s gonna kill himself. He hit the dirt and came back, and when the concrete met his tires, he started spinning instantly.”
The rapper approached the car to try to help.
“He didn’t know who anybody was, so I said, ’Do you know Bone Thugs-N-Harmony?’ And he kinda woke up,” he said. “He was like, ’Yeah.’”
It turned out the 24-year-old driver was a diabetic whose blood sugar had gotten too low, resulting in a state of shock. Layzie lent an assist by offering fruit and chocolate to the man, which could help to raise his blood sugar.
“When I see negative things, especially things that happen as a blessing, that could have been the worst, I make it into music,” Layzie said.
“I’m not doing this interview to be no type of hero, like they put it. I’m not that person. I genuinely care about people.”
