Layzie Bone Announces Departure From Bone thugs-n-harmony

Layzie Bone says he will be leaving Bone thugs-n-harmony after fulfilling obligations.

Layzie Bone has announced that he will no longer work with Bone thugs-n-harmony after fulfilling his upcoming obligations. Layzie provided this statement in a letter to fans released through social media

"What up my fan family," Layzie said in his letter. "I just want to take this time to let you know that I'm not part of any of the 'Everything 100' shows that are scheduled. I know everyone is asking, 'Where you been Layzie?'" 

Layzie stressed that he is working on his own solo effort. 

"Well I'm letting y'all know that I've been working on my brand new album, Perfect Timing, and building my brand, Harmony Howse Entertainment. I'm doing what makes sense right now for my family and myself which is building my own brand." 

While he is focusing on his solo work, he still has obligations to fulfill as part of Bone thugs-n-harmony. 

"I will be performing with Bone thugs-n-harmony at the Rock the Bells dates and for a TV appearance with them, but after that, I am not obligated to do anything else with Bone thugs-n-harmony," Layzie said. "Let the record show that I'm part of one deal with Bone thugs-n-harmony which is only the single for 'Everything 100,' which is all I'm obligated for."

Layzie Bone's tweet can be found below. 

In 2011, Layzie spoke about the group as it relates to his solo work.

"Me personally, I’m just making the push for the team," Layzie said. "Like, it was never really my thing to go solo. I’m a group orientated person. I love collaborating and kickin’ it with my family."

    yaw bone is about family the family that the great 2pac love and u are leaving sad........

  • Logan

    Why didn't Flesh go on blast and tell Layzie how if he leaves bone thugs he is disrespecting Eazy-E's Legacy. I guess that doesn't mean shit to Layzie if he leaves the group. I just don't get why they keep saying they are going to leave and blah blah blah when they all know they aren't anything without each other. How the whole fan base came to know them....AS A GROUP!!!!!!!!!

  • Mr Ouija

    well its about time layzie left, in about 6 more months he'll be back when his solo album flops and then all we have now is wish bone to say hes leaving in order to make his own solo album. im getting tired of hearing this and even more tired of bones solo projects. the majority of us bone fans liked there first 2-3 albums and then have been waiting 20 years for them to make a album that sounds the same as it but they never do. they keep making this sell out pop shit. i dont think any real thugs want to hear bone singing like juicy j's new material. we want the old shit back. i kinda realize now that bone has no clue what good music is, they got lucky that they had eazy e and dj uneek to make there first albums good and there whole career after that has been plauged with whack production by family members. no one wants to hear your whack ass broke cousins on the songs and production. spend some money and get some real production and go back to the old stuff beat wise. thats the only way you guys are going to make a comeback. look this formula you guys have now of trying to keep up with the times simply aint working, you tried it the past 10 years its whack the new generation hates you. all you have left is old fans waiting to re hear the old stuff

  • Jonathan

    Layzie sound better with BONE handsdown. Why do it on your own whereas people love Bone thugs together as 5 man not as solo artists?

    I think the group will be ok without him

    Ironic Layzie living up to his name. This nigga is a flat out thief. He sold thousands of fans a CD called "Lost Archives," years ago and STILL has not delivered it. He's been stringing along people for years, making dozens of promises to finally send what people have paid their hard earned money for. He even released a video a month ago taunting all the people he scammed showing a copy of the CD, and promising to send it again after all these years! When people ask on his site about why they still haven't got their CD years later, he personally bans them from the site so they have zero communication options for their money. When they ask on his Facebook page, he blocks them. Real dishonest nigga. Don't give this money eater any cash.

    first of all saying layzie is unprofessional is unfair. it was HIM that held the group together...well tried to any way. now that he's gone the group will probably implode! they also been together for 18 YEARS!!! so they were bound to get tired of each other. hopefully Layzie will comeback into the fold. but according to the bizzy article he stated that they all do business differently. so in that regard i'm not surprised someone left before a record deal. and it also seems to be about people not wanting to do certain things they don't want to, whatever that may be for each member.

    layzie is making a huge mistake. He is going to miss out on a lot of money bone thugs has been constantly touring for like 2 years. They have a good fanbase which allows them to stay doing shows, layzie is not going be able to consistently book shows by himself

    my buddy's ex-wife makes $77/hour on the laptop. She has been fired for six months but last month her pay check was $21524 just working on the laptop for a few hours. see this... Shut up @huh? Lupe's response was creative and most diverse. And he wasn't even trying! Lupe is still dope have you heard F&LII? Production was crappy but still Lu always delivers lyrically.

    It might be too late to just start building your own brand my dude. But better late than never. Good Luck

    my neighbor's aunt makes $77/hr on the computer. She has been without a job for nine months but last month her pay check was $17822 just working on the computer for a few hours. go to website... Not to mention, Ross is from Carol City, the meanest part of Miami. He ran with the Boobie Boys (the gang that ran Miamis drug scene) and Ross was KENNETH BOOBIE WILLIAMS' FUCKING PROTEGE for godsakes

  • Bobyahed2dis

    Damn I didnt even know this wack ass group even had fans. They havent even dropped anything dope since the 90's and their last hit was only big because of Akon. And why is this nigga tryin to look like Nelly, I get Nelly is dope but there should be no need to dickride a nigga.

  • wack

    The only one worth listening to is Krayzie Bone anyway. All the others fell off years ago

  • detroit niggroe

    These niggas aint dropped no classic shit since that E1999. Everything since group wise n solo wise is garbage. They pick the worst beats ever. Fuck em

    this is crap. they keep pushing a reunion and get their core fans excited about a comeback and he pulls this. makes me regret buying anything bone. fans don't want solo, they want a great group comeback album. not that uni-five ish

    Lazy was always my favorite as a kid, but honestly I haven't checked or a new BTNH album since Resurrection. I'll still throw in some old shit every now and then cause when these dudes were on top, they had some ill shit. I just think the time has passed at this point.

    Layzie had the best flow and lyrics by far on Everything 100. But besides that one song he been slippin for a while now. Bizzy fell off awhile ago. Never felt Flesh. Wish has always been wack as fuck. So it's just Kray. He always been on point (his flow in particular).

  • Yo!

    Damn! These guys can't keep it together for 5 minutes!! Sad way to go out with all these makeups and breakups. Oh well. There will always be the classics. -_-

  • Money First

    As a group they might as well forget about it because they just can't do right by each other or their fans!! Bad business man...bad business!!

    Bad time for him to leave horrible timing

    Bizzy all that matters straight up. He followed Biggie on Notorious Thugs and made that shit work, Biggie's best verse ever or at least top 5. Who else could do that shit? We ain't marchin' we shootin'.

      I second that...but also Layzie is too one-dimensional as a solo artist. I own EVERY LAyzie solo lp from L Burna to Cleveland....& I SWEAR...all of his albums & his verses on Bone Thugs will always leave you asking, "Didn't he say that already?" or "Is it me or does of all of his verses sound like he's saying the same exact thing over & over?' REAL TALK!!!

  • shawn

    I think he was force to leave the group over unknown reasons. Hes own brother flesh n bone tried to support him as did the entire group but it got to the point were he was putting their carrers in jeopardy over being uprofessional and supposly he has a drinking issue, so the entire group including his brother flesh wants him to get help and come back strong

    Everytime bone is about to do a major deal there is always one member that messes it up for no apparent reason. Bone had to leave interscope when flesh got out of jail because interscope didnt want to deal with flesh because he has a history of beating up people in the studio carry and getting caught with guns. In the mid 2000s after they left ruthless dre wanted to sign them as a group but bizzy pulled out at the last minute.
