For Cleveland's Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, an impromptu audition with N.W.A.'s Eazy-E garnered not only his approval, but a recording deal.
Together Wish Bone, Flesh-N-Bone, Krayzie Bone, Layzie Bone and Bizzy Bone quickly topped the rap charts in the '90s with a blend of harmonies and fast-talking verses, a sound the band will bring to the Revolution Concert House Saturday, Dec. 1.
Bone Thugs dropped its popular EP, Creepin on ah Come Up, in 1994 and its massive hit, E. 1999 Eternal, in 1995. Popular singles gained the group mainstream appeal and radio play, while "Tha Crossroads" won Bone Thugs a Grammy. After a brief hiatus, the Bone boys settled their differences in 2010 and reunited to record Uni-5: The World's Enemy.
That album, and the band's Rock the Bells tour, pays tribute to the late Eazy-E, the rapper who launched the group's career.
