Beyonce is busy recording her sixth studio album, and she’s apparently switching up her sound this time around.

Sources tell The Sun, the Grammy-winning entertainer has put plans to record a joint album with her hubby Jay Z on hold, and instead is focusing on a solo album that will feature a “distinctly more urban sound.” Whatever the hell that means.

”[Beyonce] worked on [her new album] with the likes of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Plans for an album with Jay Z are now on the back burner,” shared one source.

AllHipHop.com: Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Don’t Believe Eazy-E Died From AIDS (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) One of the most powerful moments in the Straight Outta Compton movie was the scene where Eazy-E found out he had AIDS. The N.W.A member later passed from complications of the disease. One of Eazy’s chart topping Ruthless Records acts still does not believe their former boss died from acquired immune deficiency syndrome.

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony sat down with VladTV to talk about their history with Eazy. Krayzie Bone, Wish Bone, and Flesh-n-Bone also discussed the death of their mentor. They were asked if they agreed with Eazy’s son that AIDS was not the cause of the rap legend passing away.

“Me personally, I do as well,” said Wish. “Even to this day, none of his kids, none of his baby mammas, his mistresses – nobody has come up with HIV. Just rationally thinking, something had to go on.”

Krayzie adds, “I know people can live with HIV for years and look healthy, but when you’re about to die from full-blown AIDS, you’re gonna look like you’re gonna die from AIDS… Eazy didn’t look like that at all.”

Good Day LA: ‘Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’ To Perform In ‘Art Of Rap Music Festival’

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony – just one of the many rap performers appearing at this weekend’s ‘Art Of Rap Music Festival’ in Irvine. In 1997, the group won a Grammy for the hit ‘Tha Crossroads’.

Fun facts about Bone Thugs-N-Harmony (Source: Lymelight Media)

Graced with a quick and sometimes sung delivery, along with a unique sense of melody, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony burst out of Cleveland, Ohio in the mid-’90s with a pair of massive hits (“Thuggish Ruggish Bone” and “Tha Crossroads”) along with a great first album, as well as a successful follow-up, and then quickly unraveled. Mainstream interest dropped off toward the tail end of the ’90s, but the group, which underwent a series of lineup changes, continued to release new material via mixtapes and albums throughout the 2000s.

N.W.A’s Eazy-E signed the group — initially comprised of Krayzie Bone, Wish Bone, Flesh-N-Bone, Layzie Bone, and Bizzy Bone — to Ruthless Records. The debut release from Bone was an EP, Creepin on ah Come Up (1994). The EP boasted “Thuggish Ruggish Bone,” a conventional G-funk song with an unconventional array of Bone Thug rappers that became an overnight summer anthem, especially throughout the Midwest. The single crossed into the Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at number 22.

Amid the fervor, the group immediately reentered the studio and emerged with a remarkable album, E 1999 Eternal (1995). The album topped the Billboard 200 and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts and spawned a pair of popular singles, “1st of the Month” and “Tha Crossroads,” the latter a dedication to the deceased Eazy-E and a Grammy Award recipient. As was in vogue at the time, the group members subsequently pursued respective solo careers and also a Mo Thugs Family spinoff group; none of these ventures rivaled the proper Bone projects.

At this point, the onetime cohesive group, which specialized in interwoven, harmonious singing as well as rapping, became conflicted and the group members failed to collaborate well. However, their second album, Art of War (1997) — an ambitious double-disc package — was very successful. Not only did it top the same Billboard charts as E 1999 Eternal, but lead single “Look into My Eyes” went Top Five on the Hot 100. Within a year of release, it was certified quadruple platinum for over four million units sold in the U.S.

A second round of solo albums sold poorly, and Bone quickly slid off the mainstream radar. Occasional reunions, such as 2000’s BTNHResurrection and 2002’s Thug World Order, produced some moments of glory, but these were few and far between. Thug Stories, released in 2006 on Koch, placed the group — at the time, a trio minus Bizzy — in the Top 30 of the Billboard 200. Bone then signed to Swizz Beatz’s Interscope-affiliated Full Surface boutique label, where they issued 2007’s Strength & Loyalty. A major-label budget allowed for guest spots from the Game, Mariah Carey, Akon, Bow Wow, and Twista, and the set eventually sold over 500,000 copies, earning gold certification. Bizzy returned for 2010’s Uni5: The World’s Enemy. The album debuted at number 14 on the Billboard 200. A handful of dates excepted, Bizzy was absent from the album’s promotional tour. He returned for the 2013 release Art of War: WWIII, but this time Krayzie and Wish Bone were out of the group, with both working on solo careers.

The Art Of Rap will feature two stages and over 25 artists per date featuring a who’s who of the history of rap & hip-hop. The events will be a full festival experience featuring break-dancers, live graffiti artists, vendors, an interactive festival area and so much more.

The ‘Art Of Rap Music Festival’ taking place Saturday, July 18th at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine.

A select amount of tickets are available on the official website: http://www.ArtofRapFest.com

Cleveland Plain Dealer: Bone Thugs-N-Harmony receive $1 million bid for new album

15550581-mmmain

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.

Krayzie Bone interview with VIBE, talks $1million dollar album, Wu-Tang and more

Just released VIBE interview with Krayzie Bone!

Source: http://www.vibe.com/article/interview-krayzie-bone-proposes-bone-thugswu-tang-lp-talks-challenging-eminem-and-1-million-

Krayzie Bone is feeling like a winner. And why shouldn’t he? His native Cleveland is welcoming its freakishly gifted native son LeBron James back to rock the Cavaliers’ crimson and gold. The 40-year-old speed spitter’s long-gestating Chasing The Devilalbum is set for release tomorrow (July 22). And the final Bone Thugs-n-Harmony double LP, E. 1999/Legends, celebrating 20 years of Bone Thugs, will be sold singular, in an auction beginning at $1 million. The approach mirrors the album release strategy of the same Wu-Tang Clan (Upon A Time In Shaolin) that Bone Thugs usurped in VIBE’s fan-voted Greatest Rap Group (Since ‘93) Tournament.

VIBE stepped into the winners circle with Krayzie Bone, chopping it up about the possibility of a Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and Wu-Tang Clan collaboration LP, Chasing The Devil, challenging Eminem, predictions for LeBron’s Cavs and why he’ll be watching the N.W.A. biopic with squinted eyes. —John Kennedy

VIBE: First things first—congratulations on Bone Thugs-n-Harmony’s victory in VIBE’s Greatest Rap Group (Since ‘93) Tournament! How does it feel to still be celebrated the way you are in the history of rap?
Krayzie Bone: Man, it’s a great feeling and it’s really a blessing for us to be looked at as one of the greatest groups who’ve ever done it. That’s a blessing in itself, because not many groups even exist today. It really makes us feel like what we did and the bricks we laid down weren’t in vain. Because it actually stuck with a lot of people. It actually meant something to a lot of people. It’s like planted in a part of hip-hop history now.

After you guys defeated Wu-Tang Clan for the championship, you posted an Instagram image of artwork for a hypothetical collaboration project with the Wu.
Yeah. It was actually fan-made. After I thanked all the fans for voting for us, somebody posted that and I was like, this is dope. I was just putting it out there so everybody could see it and start wanting it. The response was crazy.

Do you think that kind of project could ever happen? 
Man, we have never had the opportunity to connect and do something with Wu-Tang. But I’m good friends with RZA and Method; the other cats I haven’t got to hang out with as much. Met Raekwon a couple of times, he’s cool. Met Ghostface, but you know—every time I talk to RZA and Meth we talk about doing something. It’s long overdue. It’s just getting everyone’s schedules together and actually making it happen. We’ve talked about it; everybody is down. I have ideas, because it’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while. I’d like to start off with a Bone and Wu cypher—get everybody warmed up and just kill it. That’d be crazy.

You’re getting ready to drop your own album, which is also long overdue. What should we expect from Chasing The Devil
Expect to be educated—the usual from Bone. We gon’ give them some knowledge, we gon’ take it to the street: great stories, concepts, dramatic… I’m putting it together like an audio movie; you can put the CD on and get lost into it. I’m having three volumes and I’m going to release them separately. So it’s going to be different concepts for each album. Everybody is going to be able to relate to this album.

What’s the lead single? 
“Chasing Nightmares.” You know the saying, “I’m chasing my dreams.” The song is basically like, I thought I was chasing a dream, but it turned into a nightmare once I caught it. You think everything is going to be pleasant, money is going to solve all these problems but a catch comes with it. This industry messes a lot of people’s lives up because they sacrifice and they give their lives up and when they get [success], they’re like, “Man, I did all of this and it wasn’t even worth it.” That’s basically what inspired that song. It’s a crazy one, too, trust me.

Are you looking into any features?
Well on the first album, there aren’t going to be any guests except for Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. On the second and third, I’m going to have some features. I talked to Wiz Khalifa, J. Cole, A$AP Mob. I got verbal confirmations from these people so I’m just waiting to see if it goes through and we can make it happen.

It’s so dope to see the mark and influence Bone Thugs has had on today’s generation of artists, from the folks you just named to others.
Yeah, I think that’s important for music. I’ve always felt like the older generation and the newer generations should always bridge that gap in music. I like what A$AP Mob is doing. They even said that they based the whole way that they named themselves and some of the music that they do was influenced by us. I see a lot of people doing our style that I think sound good doing it: Drake, Nicki Minaj. And it ain’t just rapping fast; it’s the harmonies and all that stuff.

What made want to record your own version of Eminem’s “Rap God?”
I’m just a student of hip-hop. I think Eminem is a beast, one of the deadliest MCs you’d ever listen to. A few fans were telling me, “If anybody can rap on [‘Rap God’] and make it sound good, it’s you.” So I did it, let a few people hear it. I was just going to put it in the vault like I do a lot of stuff, but people that heard it were like, “You gotta put this out ASAP.” I’m glad I did.

How does it feel to see your home city welcome LeBron back?
When he just recently made the decision to come back, I was overly excited. It makes the perfect story. As quick as the fans hated him, they love him all over again. All he has to do is win one [championship] and trust me, fans will be happy. And his story will be classic. It will be legendary.

Were you one of the disgruntled fans burning his jersey four years ago?
When he left, I’m not going to lie, I was shocked, upset and disappointed all at once. But I wasn’t to the point where I was out there burning jerseys and all of that crazy stuff. Because after all, this is his life, nobody can live this man’s life for him. He’s making his choice based on his life and the future of his family. But of course I was upset because I’m a Cleveland fan. But I always felt like he would come back. And plus, there were a lot of things the Cleveland team and staff could’ve done to make sure he stayed. But like I said, I maintained being a fan. We hung out in Miami and I told him that wherever you go, bro, I’m representing you. Just like he told us, he was like, Man, I represent Bone all over the world.

Everybody that made it out of Cleveland had to leave Cleveland or Ohio to make it. and then go back. We had to come all the way to Los Angeles to meet Eazy-E. So if you from there, you know it’s a city of strugglers and grinders. I totally understood that.

What’s your prediction for the Cavs this season?
They can definitely make a run. I’m not expecting no miracles first season back because we obviously have to put the right team together. But that the way we’re looking right now, there’s potential to definitely make it to at least the second round. I’ma leave it at that.

Are you excited to see the N.W.A. biopic?
Aw, man. I can’t wait to see it. If it’s put together right, it’s going to be amazing. I was a big Eazy and NWA fan, so I’m gonna be one of the biggest critics. I know the movie is going to bring back a lot of memories, when I see certain things I’m going to remember where I was and what I was doing.

Fans of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony are some of the most rabid and supportive. Why do you think you guys have that kind of connection with your fans? 
Our fans, it’s like a cult following. Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, we went from a great group to a supergroup to a brand to now a culture. It’s because we connected emotionally with our fans. When we came out, we portrayed the struggle. The only way to make it through that struggle was through sticking with your family. Bone was always very family-oriented and the fans connect with that. That’s why when our fans hear that one of us is not in the group or won’t be at the show, they get very upset and start to worry, like is this person out of the group now? They love us as a whole. Fans like to feel like they’re part of what you do. So you have to show them some type of attention, acknowledge them. We never act funny toward our fans, never turn them down for a picture or autograph. We don’t act like we’re untouchable to, because we want to make them feel like they’ve been a part of what we’ve been doing for the past 20 years.

And you’ll be able to touch them all over the world with the tour next year. 
Yeah, we have a world tour coming up in 2015. It’s called E. 1999/Legends Tour. We got like 20 different countries on the table, we’re going to end it in America. And we’re also working on an album titled the same, E. 1999/Legends. 20th year anniversary of Bone Thugs N Harmony’s music. We’re doing a lot. We’re making this push for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and just to make sure we solidify the Bone Thugs N Harmony legacy.
