On the heels of releasing their ninth group project, this time featuring all five members together, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony realized the endurance that kept them together all these years was exactly what they needed to deliver their new album.
The Cleveland collective is currently touring to promote their forthcoming Uni-5: The World’s Enemy without charismatic member Bizzy Bone, who opted out of the trek because of a financial dispute. Wish Bone, though, said being back onstage trumps any trouble, albeit temporary, that might have arisen between the group.
“For us to be able to go out and sell tickets and people to want to come see us, we thank God for that, first and foremost,” he said. “It’s been a rough road. We brothers, cousins and best friends — we have ups and downs and whatever, but at the end of the day we’re still family. So we’re gonna bring it together to do what we do — which is music — and reach the masses.”
“Meet the Sky” is the group’s current single and it features recently arrested member Flesh-N-Bone, who was previously incarcerated for 10 years during the group’s rise to success. The rapper declined to comment on the incident, which stemmed from a 12-year-old alleged assault against his mother . Krayzie Bone urged fans to ignore the headlines and pay attention to the new project instead.
“We maintaining, holding together and kept pushing forward,” he explained. “And we were able to find success. We were gonna make it work — this is what we wanted to do all our lives, this music.”
