2007 saw the reintroduction of Bone Thugs N’ Harmony with their gold-selling Strength & Loyalty, released through Interscope Records. The work was parlayed into a November release T.H.U.G.S. by former imprint Ruthless Records, also cracking Top 100 on the charts.
Just as with the late ’90s mainstream success of the group, this group revitalization has been responded by group solo efforts. Unofficial group leader Krayzie Bone, who achieved platinum and gold achievements in 1999’s Thug Mentality and 2001’s Thug On Da Line respectively, is again following group advancements with his own efforts.
Krayzie‘s Thugline Records will release Smoke On This on April 1. The effort, released independently, is an extension from a 2007 mixtape from the Cleveland rapper. The first single is said to be “In The Chevelet [sic]”
