CLEVELAND – Today, Layzie Bone and Wish Bone of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony visited our NewsChannel5 station and discussed their next album, sports, and had a few laughs with Anchor Lee Jordan.
Layzie and Wish said their next album, which will be titled “E. 1999 Legends,” will be the group’s final album and they plan to go out with a bang.
Bone Thugs will only make one copy of their last album. They will then auction the album off to the highest bidder. Whoever wins will be able to make as many copies of the album as they want for distribution.
Layzie and Wish also shared information about the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony Cares Foundation — a way for the group to give back to Cleveland. Bone Thugs hopes to partner with Cleveland organizations that have a desire to bring the love back to our city.
We couldn’t let Layzie and Wish go before asking their opinions about Cleveland sports. Both were excited about the Cleveland Browns winning the final preseason game last night and are very happy to know LeBron James is returning to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Before the guys left, Layzie and Wish took a few pictures with our LeBron banner and Charles Ramsey (who randomly stopped by the station today to see his pal John Kosich). They also decided to give Lee Jordan a nickname: Pretty Bone. They gave Meteorologist Tera Blake the nickname “Rain Bone,” too. Do you like these nicknames? If so, send Lee Jordan a tweet with the hashtag #PrettyBone. Send Tera Blake a tweet with the hashtag #RainBone.
New Krayzie Bone video, Apply the Pressure, just released!
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.
What album would you pay $1 million for (assuming you had the money)? Tell us in the comments.
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.
