Bone Thugs-n-Harmony are an American hip hop group from Cleveland, Ohio. It consists of rappers Flesh-n-Bone, Bizzy Bone, Krayzie Bone, and Wish Bone. Longtime member Layzie Bone left the group in mid-2013 to pursue his solo career. American West Coast rapper Eazy-E, former member of rap group N.W.A, signed Bone Thugs-n-Harmony to Ruthless Records in late 1993, when Bone Thugs debuted with their EP Creepin on ah Come Up. The EP included their breakout hit single "Thuggish Ruggish Bone".
In 1995, the group released its second album E. 1999 Eternal, which included hits "1st of tha Month" and "East 1999." A tribute to the recently deceased Eazy-E, titled "Tha Crossroads", won a Grammy award in 1997. The Art of War, the group's third album, was also released in 1997. Bone Thugs is also the only group that has worked with deceased artists 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G., Eazy-E & Big Pun while they were still alive. The editors of About.com ranked them #12 on their list of the "25 Best Rap Groups of All Time", and MTV called them "the most melodic hip-hop group of all time".
"Get'chu Twisted" is the lead single of Krayzie Bone's "Gemini: Good Vs. Evil" album.
The song is produced by Lil' Jon. There is a video of the song, but it is a low-budget video because Krazyie Bone had a deal with Ball'r Records at the time. Therefore, the video wasn't in the chartsBillboard. There is a remix of the song with the other Bone Thugs-n-Harmony members, Layzie, Wish and Bizzy. Avant made an appearance on the video.
Bone Brothers III (or Bone Brothers 3) is the third album by Layzie Bone and Bizzy Bone. It is the third of the Bone Brothers albums first one being released in 2005 entitled Bone Brothers and the second being released in 2007 entitled Bone Brothers 2. The album was released in early 2008 under the little-known Siccness.net on the February 5, 2008.
Bone Brothers III featured a number of special guests for the album including Notorious B.I.G, Petey Pablo, Mo thug member Thin C, Cuttthroat Raw and most noticeably Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone from the group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony in the song The Struggle (in which Petey Pablo also appeared. This is the second time since Bone Thugs-n-Harmony and Bizzy Bone split that they have sung together (the other being in 2005 in the Bone Brothers album). The song The Struggle is believed to have been a cut song from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony album Strength and Loyalty which featured Bizzy Bone. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony have now re-recruited both Bizzy Bone and Flesh-N-Bone (who was released from prison in 2008) after Bizzy Bone met Krayzie Bone after a concert in California.
Hip hop is a broad conglomerate of artistic forms that originated within a marginalized subculture in the South Bronx amongst black and latino youth during the 1970s in New York City. It is characterized by four distinct elements, all of which represent the different manifestations of the culture: rap music (oral), turntablism or "DJing" (aural), breaking (physical) and graffiti art (visual). Despite their contrasting methods of execution, they find unity in their common association to the poverty and violence underlying the historical context that birthed the culture. It was as a means of providing a reactionary outlet from such urban hardship that "Hip Hop" initially functioned, a form of self-expression that could reflect upon, proclaim an alternative to, try and challenge or merely evoke the mood of the circumstances of such an environment. Even while it continues in contemporary history to develop globally in a flourishing myriad of diverse styles, these foundational elements provide stability and coherence to the culture. The term is frequently used mistakenly to refer in a confining fashion to the mere practice of rap music.
The origin of the culture stems from the block parties of the Ghetto Brothers when they would plug the amps for their instruments and speakers into the lampposts on 163rd Street and Prospect Avenue and DJ Kool Herc at 1520 Sedgwick Avenue, where Herc would mix samples of existing records with his own shouts to the crowd and dancers. Kool Herc is credited as the "father" of Hip hop. DJ Afrika Bambaataa of the hip hop collective Zulu Nation outlined the pillars of hip hop culture, to which he coined the terms: MCing, DJing, B-boying and graffiti writing.
