Last year, Krazie Bone shared on Clubhouse that Bone Thug-N-Harmony was in discussions with Verzuz to schedule a face-off against Three 6 Mafia.
Earlier this month, Verzuz’s official Instagram account broke the news that the battle between the two groups will take place on Dec 2 in Los Angeles.
“IT’S THAT TIME,” read the battle announcement, featuring a poster with text overlaying a red brick wall. “Bone Thugs-N-Harmony (@btnhlive) vs Three 6 Mafia (@three6mafia) LIVE from Los Angeles!! Thursday, DECEMBER 2ND. Y’all ready!? #VERZUZ MORE DETAILS COMING SOON!”
“LETSSSS GOOOOOO,” Three 6 Mafia commented on Bone Thugs’ Instagram page, where they shared the Verzuz details.
Earlier this week Krazie Bone was a guest on the ‘SAY WORD! PODCAST with Joe Joe and Javarra Hodges.
During the podcast Bone revealed that Easy E did not discover Bone Thug-N-Harmony, they found him.
“Now, I don’t want this to come off the wrong way or sound funny, but a lot people be like Eazy-E discovered us. That n*** didn’t discover us we went and found that n***. You know what I’m saying? It wasn’t like you could get on your phone and get in Dms to get your product out. You actually, had to get into somebody’s face. So, at 17 and 18 years old took a 3,000 mile trip with food stamps in our pocket, a little bit of weed, and all the money we could hustle up, and we went out there and tried our hand. Where we were like we really want to be with Eazy-E,” said Krazie Bone.
“Because Dr. Dre was bumping at that time and EAZY-E was the underdog and we were like we need to be with Easy E because he owns the company and these n*** came up with us and we were writing to Dr. Dre beats. So, we wheeled our way into this thing, but a lot of people say we were discovered.”
Speaking of Eazy-E one of his former artists by name of BG Knocc Out was a recent guest on VladTV, where he was discussing The Mysterious Death of Eazy-E television series, and Jerry Heller came up. During that part of the segment Knocc Out revealed, Heller attempted to sue Eazy E. Something that he denied in 2016 before his passing, according to Hip Hop DX.
“Eazy, the day he came into the studio and we was recording the song ‘Doggpound Killer,’ he was supposed to do a verse on there,” BG Knocc Out shared. “He had eight bars to put on that song. Sometime throughout the course of time he was in the studio, his lungs collapsed and then I go sit in the hallway with him while he’s wheezing, and he had a big manila envelope.
“The guy Donovan, who owned Audio Achievements, he came and sat on the other side of Eazy. Eazy was showing him papers … but he was telling him, ‘Look at what Jerry’s been doing and now he’s trying to sue me because I fired him’ … I was sitting right there.”
Jerry Heller filed a $110 million suit against Straight Outta Compton‘s filmmakers in October 2015. F. Gary Gray, the Oscar nominees, Legendary Pictures, Ice Cube and Eazy-E’s estate are just some of the many named in the suit.
Three years later it with be tossed out after the passing of Heller. Twenty-one years after the death of Eazy E, who died from AIDS-induced pneumonia, one month after his diagnosis. He was just 30-years of age.
