Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Heads know that the Cleveland, Ohio collective began as B.O.N.E. Enterpri$e. One of Rap music’s greatest ears for talent, Eazy-E, suggested a name-change somewhere before 1994’s Creepin’ On Ah Come Up.

Somehow, even in the 20 years since Eric Wright’s death, “Bone Thugs-N-Harmony” seems to be the perfect stage name for Krayzie, Layzie, Bizzy, Wish, and Flesh-N-Bone. These guys represent the streets, not just of the 2-1-6 or 8-1-8, but worldwide. Moreover, their intricate lyrical harmonies have stood apart for more than 20 years, making the music supplied by the family of MCs impossible to copy.

In 2015 though, the clique says they’re “More Than Thugs” on a new single produced by Damizza (Shade Shiest, Mariah Carey, Mack 10). The song looks at the good, soulful work from all five members, featuring lots of tour footage. Perhaps the Thug in Bone Thugs is a little less the Webster’s definition, and a bit more as the Bone brothers’ homie Tupac Shakur intended?
