TIMELINE

Bone Thugs-N-Harmonybutton.gif (123 bytes) Bone Thugs-N-Harmony hail from Cleveland and consist of Krayzie Bone, Layzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, Wish Bone, and Flesh-N-Bone. Their music is considered hardcore gangsta rap (also called by the group as "Cleveland Sound") and often provides more of a message than their counterparts, as evidenced with their songs "Tha Crossroads" and "If I Could Teach The World." The popularity of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony grows with each LP release.

1993...

button.gif (123 bytes) The rap grouped formed when they were dirt poor and struggling, and was discovered and produced in Los Angeles by NWA's Eazy-E prior to his death in 1995. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony actually auditioned for Eazy-E over the phone after living on the streets of L.A. for months. After getting no response from the rapper, the group headed back to Cleveland and convinced Eazy-E to have another listen to their sound backstage at one of his appearances. This time, Eazy-E grabbed the group and signed them with Ruthless Records.
