EAZY 1

Words by Paul Meara (@PaulMeara)

In the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton there’s a scene toward the end where Eazy-E walks into a nightclub. Upon entry, everyone’s vibing to Craig Mack’s “Flava In Ya Ear,” a clear sign the Ruthless Records headman was on the opposite side of the country in a place just beginning to accept what he had started nearly a half decade prior.

When the then estranged member of Niggas With Attitude gets to the back of the club he confronts Ice Cube and a moment of tension ensues. The two–surrounded by security–eye each other down waiting for the other to give in and admit their wrongdoing. Both E and Cube contributed to the break up of the group that made them famous so as each let their guard down they began to reconcile and talk about the future.

Biopics have the tough task of walking the line between piquing the interest of a general audience and portraying what actually happened. They also have to cast characters who look and sound like the real deal as those with either inside or outside knowledge of the real life plot will be the first to dismiss anything they’ve heard or experienced to the contrary.

Just weeks after Straight Outta Compton’s release those who’ve had a chance to watch and re-watch the movie in theaters (and on bootleg) have come to the general consensus that–for what was shown–was mostly accurate. Some have come out, including Eazy-E’s son and daughter, and criticized certain elements of the movie, particularly the likeness of their father during the last weeks of his life and subsequent death.

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…
