Krayzie Bone, Flesh-N-Bone and Wi$h Bone to discuss how they got their start and their relationship with the legendary Eazy-E.
Talking with VladTV, the members of Bone Thugs and Harmony recall the last days of the outspoken N.W.A. member that succumbed to complications from AIDS.
“We was a handful in the beginning,” Krayzie Bone remembers. “One night everything is regular and then by the end of the week – the week it came out – Eazy [-E] was calling us telling us we had the number one song on the radio,” he recalls when asked about the group’s breakout track, “Thuggish Ruggish Bone.” Eazy-E signed the Cleveland artists to Ruthless Records in 1993, and the crew was there for all the mishaps that went on around the time, including when N.W.A.’s former manager, Jerry Heller, was fired.
Backtracking to Eazy-E again, the members were asked if they believe he truly died from AIDS, to which they still remain skeptical about to this day – Wi$h Bone says it was “real sudden,” especially since he still looked to be in tip-top shape until his demise. “Just rationally thinking, something had to go on,” he concludes.
