Who is Krayzie Bone?

American rapper and music producer Anthony Henderson – aka Krayzie Bone – was born in Cleveland, Ohio USA, on 17 June 1973 under the zodiac sign of Gemini. He’s probably best known for being a member of the hip hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, which also comprises Flesh-n-Bone, Layzie Bone, Wish Bone and Bizzy Bone.

Education and early life

Krayzie and his brother Kermit Henderson were raised in Cleveland by their parents, but as Krayzie respects their privacy, not a lot about them has been revealed; it’s known that they are fourth generation Jehovah’s Witnesses, which means that Krayzie and his brother don’t celebrate Christmas. Krayzie’s also revealed that he believes many rappers are today unintentionally following the Illuminati.

He was attending a local high school when he became interested in rap music, and it was during his four years there that he met the remaining members of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, with the exception of Flesh-n-Bone. Krayzie matriculated in 1991, and then focused on music rather than pursuing a college degree.

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony

Krayzie, Bizzy, Layzie and Wish launched Bone Thugs-n-Harmony in 1991, and signed a contract with Ruthless Records in 1993; the same year saw the release of their debut album “Faces of Death”. The boys were initially called B. O. N. E. Enterprise, but the owner of Ruthless Records Eazy-E renamed them to Bone Thugs-n-Harmony.

In June 1994, Bone released their debut extended play (EP) “Creepin’ on ah Come Up” which became popular in the US, peaking at #2 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, and #12 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart; two of the EP’s most successful singles were “Foe tha Love of $” and “Thuggish Ruggish Bone”. The boys seemed to have a bright future ahead of them, and Eazy-E taught them business skills and produced some of their songs, however, he then died from pneumonia on 26 March 1995.

They released their second album “E. 1999 Eternal” on 25 July 1995, and their singles “1st of tha Month” and “Tha Crossroads” both charted, with the latter topping the Hot Rap Tracks and Hot 100 charts. The following year saw the boys launch their own record label Mo Thugs Records, and their compilation album “Family Scriptures” was released on 5 November 1996. “E. 1999 Eternal” remains Bone’s most successful album, having been certified platinum four times by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Bone was also to collaborate with 2Pac on their studio album “One Nation” in 1996, however, 2Pac was murdered in September of the same year.

Their following album “The Art of War” was released in 1997, and its single “Look Into My Eyes” peaked at #2 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart and #4 on the Hot 100 chart. They released their fourth album “BTNHResurrection” in 2000, and in June of the same year, Flesh-n-Bone was sentenced to spend 11 years behind bars after having been found guilty of assault with a firearm.

Their new album, “Thug World Order” was released in 2002, and peaked at #12 on the Billboard 200 chart; some of the album’s most popular songs were “Money, Money”, “Get Up & Get It” and “Home”. Bizzy Bone was removed from the group in the first half of 2003, and their first album as a trio “Thug Stories” was released on 19 September 2006, topping the Independent Albums chart and peaking at #25 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Their seventh album “Strength & Loyalty” came out on 8 May 2007, peaking at #2 on the Billboard 200, and was followed by their compilation album “T. H. U. G. S.” on 13 November 2007; on 13 July 2008, Flesh-n-Bone rejoined the group on release from jail, and Bizzy Bone then rejoined as well.
