Krayzie Bone has announced July 22 as the release date for the first of his three-part Chasing The Devil album series.
“I know our fan family has been anxiously anticipating the release of my final solo album,” the Bone thugs-n-harmony rapper says in a press release. “There is no need to feel disappointed. I am very confident that once it is finally released on the new street date, it will definitely be worth the wait. I can honestly say that I haven’t felt this complete about a solo album of mine since Thug Mentality.”
The first album of the Chasing The Devil series will be Chasing The Devil: Temptation. The Cleveland rapper had an April 20 release date for the installment, but decided to push the project back once he signed a deal for the collection with RBC Records, which has worked with Tech N9ne, Layzie Bone and DJ Quik, among others.
“We’ve been chasing this project for a long time and it was not easy to get,” RBC co-owner Brian Shafton says in a press release. “We want to win with it on many different levels, and making sure it’s properly distributed to the world is a crucial step.”
Krayzie Bone has been discussing his Chasing The Devil since at least 2009. “It’s like when you out here chasing the fame, and the money, the glamour, the women and all that, basically what you chasing is the devil,” he said during an exclusive interview with HipHopDX in March 2009. “So it get real deep on the album.”
