Rap group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony sets SETX date

BEAUMONT — The Ohio-based rap group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony are headed to Southeast Texas this winter.

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony will perform on Sunday, Feb. 16, at the Dixie Dancehall located in the Crockett Street Entertainment District in downtown Beaumont. Tickets are $25 for ages 18 and older and are on sale now at www.frontgatetickets.com.

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, which was discovered by Eazy-E of N.W.A. in the early ’90s, is best known for its hit singles “First of the Month” and “Crossroads,” which helped the group earn a Grammy award in 1997, as well as “Days of Our Lives,” “Thuggish Ruggish” and more.

The unit is comprised of members Krayzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, Wish Bone and Flesh-n-Bone as fellow member Layzie Bone departed the group in August 2013 to work on his solo career.

Throughout its more than 20 year career, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony’s style has often been described as melodic with rapid-fire quick lyrics but can also flow at a slow, melodic pace self-described by the group as “flip flop flow.”

Though the lyrics and content of early songs and albums focused on “gangsta” themes such as death, violence and smoking marijuana, the group has matured over the decades and often include positive messages on friends, religion or urban social issues.

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony is touring in support of its December 2013 release, “Art of War: W.W. III,” its 10th studio album.

“We’re bringing real gangsta rap back for our fans who have been asking for it,” said Flesh Bone in a press release. “We’re coming real rough with it! We also have some real radio friendly songs like the one we dedicated to Eazy-E, so we’re bringing a variety of sounds on the album. My excitement is through the roof.”
