Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will make a tour stop in its hometown in June of this year.
The group itself was formed in Cleveland nearly 30 years ago.
One of the top rap groups of all time will be making a tour stop in its hometown.
Bone Thugs-n-Harmony will hold a concert this June 7 at Cleveland’s Agora Theatre and Ballroom. The venue made the announcement Tuesday, with tickets set to go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m.
Formed in Cleveland in 1991, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony was signed to Ruthless Record’s by N.W.A.’s Eazy-E and soon found many of its songs and albums near the top of the charts. One of those singles, “Tha Crossroads,” reached No. 1 in the Unites States and won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. The five artists worked with legends such as Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G., and MTV later called them “the most melodic hip-hop group of all time.”
Ticket prices for the concert start at $30. In addition, the Agora also announced the following shows that will take place this year:
Krayzie Bone recently stopped by the KDAY Morning Show with Romeo to talk about Krush Groove, Bone Thugs’ relationship with Eazy-E and the meaning behind “Tha Crossroads.”
Krayzie went on to mention the love the group gets when they’re in the West Coast and how excited he gets when Bone Thugs performs at Krush Groove.
“Man, it’s always good [getting a call for Krush Groove]. I be kinda upset when we don’t, I be like ‘we ain’t on this one?’ This is traditional. This is legendary for hip hop, this is the first hip hop station, so it’s important to do what ya’ll do.”

He went on to mention his relationship with Eazy-E and how he found out about his passing.
“It’s so crazy how everything went down. We were called to the office one day, but we hadn’t seen E in about a month and it was strange for us because he would contact us every day. We got a call from the office and we didn’t know what was going on because they were giving us our first checks. We didn’t know why Eazy wasn’t giving us our first checks, but we got our money. We got our money and we moved back to Cleveland. MTV News comes on and it says Eazy-E had just passed away from AIDS. We didn’t know anything.”

The rapper went on to talk about the meaning of ‘Tha Crossroads‘ and how it was intended to be for a family member. Watch the full KDAY Morning Show interview below:
Layzie Bone’s getting to the root of his beef with Migos after the upstarts declared themselves the biggest group in the world to ever exist. Layzie’s issue? Migos lacks R-E-S-P-E-C-T.
Layzie jumped on “TMZ Live” to set the record straight — Offset and the rest of Migos are talented, but anointing themselves the biggest group ever ignores the path paved by the OGs.
ICYMI … Offset made his declaration earlier this week, which triggered Layzie to fire back and say Outkast, NWA and the Beastie Boys can arguably lay claim to the title, but Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is right up there with them.
Layzie says Offset and the Migos need to learn the word “homage.”
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Adler Music Group posted to social media the tour dates for the group, confirming the group will be at The Forum in Inglewood, CA for Krush Groove 2018 days before 93.5 KDAY-FM Los Angeles officially announces the lineup on 1/22 Monday morning at 7:30 am.
