The Outlawz & Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Are Still Riding Hard For Makaveli & Eazy (Video)
Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and The Outlawz have a long collaborative history. Both groups, West Coast transplants, are mourning their figureheads: Eazy-E and Tupac Shakur, respectively. In the third installment of Thug Brothers, that’s just the idea.
“Makaveli & Eazy” is a straightforward tribute to the Rap legends who died in 1996 and 1995. Pac and E were friends, with the Thug Life MC reportedly being courted by Wright in the days when he was cutting tracks with Above The Law. That of course, did not happen, but Young Noble is bound to Krayzie Bone. In the animated video, the Jersey boys and the Ohio outfit pay homage. Hip-Hop is not the same without Eric and Tupac, and nor are these crews. However, each maintains cult followings.
Noble began the series with Layzie, before swapping to Kray’ for Thug Brothers 2. Volume 3 involves Tupac lyrics on song “Survivin’.” The Real Talk Entertainment LP drops October 3. Earlier this month, Noble and E.D.I. released the video to “Born Sinners.” That video features Outlawz’ member Hussein Fatal, who died in a car accident in 2015.
