Interview: Krayzie Bone Says a Final bone thugs-n-harmony Album is on the Horizon, Recalls Three 6 Mafia Beef

Krayzie 1

Words by Paul Meara (@PaulMeara)

The final hurrah. The last leg. The 70th star in Mario 64. That’s what Krayzie Bone is on right now when it comes to music. The Cleveland native and bone thugs-n-harmony member is in his last chapter as a solo artist. You see, Krayzie is over two decades deep in the rap game and has decided that his forthcoming individual effort, Chasing The Devil would be his last go around in the studio.

Slated for a March 1 release, Krazie Bone’s latest melodic look into his life is perhaps the perfect tool to bring things full circle in his career. Chasing The Devil is a project that has been in the making for years. Its reflective and self-cleansing nature is the perfect tonic for a career that began battling demons. After all, B.O.N.E. was on quite the horrocore tip early on, often alluding to the other side of reality.

“I would say it has the usual dark, eerie B.O.N.E. feel to it but it’s a lot of storytelling,” Krayzie says describing Chasing The Devil. “The majority of the album is telling the story of what I’ve seen, being a part of the business, things that I’ve experienced myself and what other people have gone through. It’s kind of like a movie. It all comes together from the beginning to the end.” This isn’t the real end for Krayzie though. It may be the 70th star but remember; you have to collect 120 in order to officially beat the mid-90s Nintendo classic. Television and music management are what’s next for Krazie Bone and he’s already a few years ahead. Continue reading this post…

From Roxanne Shanté and Queen Latifah to today’s crop women have always been a part of hip-hop culture. Some of current day hip-hop’s women receiving the most notable attention often yield more controversy than memorable music. Take Iggy Azalea for example. Or Nicki Minaj. Or even Azealia Banks. Many rap critics find themselves asking, “Where are all the other female emcees?” Well, there are plenty, if you spend any amount of time looking.

Rapsody is dope. Nitty Scott, MC is beginning to build her empire. And then on the west coast, there’s Raven Sorvino. The Leimert Park resident and Richmond, Texas native has been making a name for herself in the rap game as of late but she’s way more than a dope spitter. The 25-year-old’s unique style and whit is just as eye opening as her knack for ear-catching lyrics. Continue reading this post…
