Krayzie Bone Reacts To Layzie Bone's Bone thugs-n-harmony departure

Exclusive: Krayzie Bone says Bone thugs-n-harmony will continue to support Layzie Bone even though he has left the group.

Last week, Bone thugs-n-harmony’s Layzie Bone announced his departure from the Grammy award-winning group via Twitter (August 28). In an exclusive interview with HipHopDX, Krayzie Bone shared his thoughts on Layzie’s exodus.

“It is what it is,” Krayzie said. “He has his reasons. We’re still going to support him and everything he does. He’s actually going to be performing with us at Rock The Bells. I guess he needs to step away because there are some things he wants to do as a man, and as men, we can’t do nothing but respect that. We’re going to continue as a team and keep moving forward with this grind.”

Bone thugs-n-harmony recently announced that they’ve signed to eOne Entertainment, as well as an upcoming Midwest tour with Ty Dolla $ign. The group is also slated to perform during Rock The Bells 2013. Layzie Bone’s exit may have shocked fans. But Krayzie says he wasn’t “really surprised.”

“It’s just that with Bone, man, anything happens all the time,” he told DX exclusively. “I’ve been knowing these dudes all my life. Anything can happen with Bone thugs-n-harmony and it’s never stopped the movement of the brand. It’s never stopped the fans from loving the brand, so we’re going to continue moving with it. We’re gonna continue to carry on the legacy. I’m really not gonna sweat it like it’s the end of the world. The fans aren’t really concerned about any drama that surrounds the group. All they care about is what they hear. It’s never really been about this person or that person. We’ve heard this before. It is what it is.”

Away from the group, Krayzie Bone is excited about the future of his clothing line, The Life Apparel, as well as upcoming opportunities in film. “I’m looking into expanding my clothing line, getting into the movie thing—behind and on the scene,” he said. “We have too much going on to be focused on anything negative right now. We’re much older in the game now. We don’t have time to be stuck on the negative thing.”

Bone thugs-n-harmony will perform during Rock The Bells 2013, which kicks off today in Los Angeles, California. For more information on Rock The Bells, visit rockthebells.net

    /No Hona Costello? He just dropped his song and got 5k plays already! His song high is over 90k yet these blogs fail to post him. He got over 250k plays total. Makes no sense.

    They should change there name, take the thugs out of it, maybe go back to bone enterprise. I think they would be more appealing to mainstream

    I always felt like since krayzie won that grammy w/o the group layzie has been a little jealous
  • n$f
    Krayzie knows lazy is making a huge mistake. Lay is going to miss out on a lot of money from touring plus he is not good with business at all

    Great rapper imo just doesn't put out enough music. Would like 2 hear more

      Except wish bone

      My thoughts exactly. Everyone except Wish. And if one person should leave the group permanently its Wish. He has no value, no skills. I always skip his shit. Shotz to tha double glock was his only tight verse ever. And that was over a decade ago!
    • Anonymous
      actually Wish left with Krayzie and then changed their minds. shit even wikipedia showed Bone Thugs as Layzie Bizzie n Flesh at that point
  • Zerry Ziggz
    Thanks DX for never reviewing Krayzie Bone's EP or Bizzy Bones collaboration album. That's just the related 2013 albums that y'all have slacked on reviewing but continue hatin on the og's of the game it's cool.

  • HIPHOPMUZIK
    I would love to hear bone on some new beats I always like them never like there beat selections, But I would anticipate a new album from them simply because they are legends, you dont become legendary for no reason.

    Inactive they were just ft on asap fergs album, they are doing rock the bells, they just finish the everything 100 tour, krayzie bone just opening up his second The life Apparel store and he just shoot a video with Trae the Truth thats pretty active
  • d-nucks
    i mean does it really matter at this point? This group has been dsyfunctional and inactive for awhile now. They should just get together and do renuion concerts from time to time....thats about it.
    • Anonymous
      Why should they do that when they stay touring and making money. Yea they been dsyfunctional but they are also the most active legendary group in rap. They stay touring and doing features.

    I just peep out the life apparel site krayzie acctually had some nice gear on there so he owns this clothing line? I did not know dude was so active business wise
  • J dirty
    If theres no beef then why did he split?..If bone(ALL OF EM)got there shit together long enough to put out a real classic album(with No Bullshit Features at all).Just them vibin in the studio like E.1999.Theyd be getting allot more support theses days.I remeber buying Art of War the day it dropped.Shit flipped my wig.
    • Anonymous
      Just because he left doesnt mean its beef dude wants to do his own thing on his own. They not dropping another E99 people need to move on that. What they are doing now is what they are suppose to be doing touring and getting paid doing features and getting paid, collecting royalties getting paid, collecting publishing getting paid
  • 504 boi
