Bone Thugs-n-Harmony took over episode nine of SKEE Live and delivered quite possibly the craziest performance of the season. DJ Skee wasted no time in sending things over to the legendary group as they hit the stage to open the show with “Thuggish Ruggish Bone” and “East 1999” at L.A. Live’s The Conga Room. As the smoke clouds in the crowd settled and cameras went live back in the AXS TV studio, the Cleveland natives sat down with Skee for an intimate one-on-one interview.
Topics of discussion included the origin of the group’s signature melodic style, landing a deal with West Coast Hip Hop Pioneer Eazy-E, Kendrick Lamar and so much more. DJ Skee also proposed the idea that perhaps Drake is the only artist who has the ability to drop bars with the same fast delivery and still harmonize.
Fresh off the success of performing alongside an Eazy-E hologram at Rock The Bells, Bone Thugs opened up on what it felt like to pay homage to their mentor and spoke on the significance of the late rapper’s music on Hip Hop. With Bone holding the title as the only group to collaborate with Jam Master Jay, Tupac, Biggie, Eazy-E and Big pun, the living legends look back and reflect on who they had the best chemistry with in-studio. Bone also explained how at the advice of Eazy-E the group decided to remain neutral by choosing not to engage any potential past beefs.
Ty Dolla $ign also made a brief appearance alongside Bone Thugs for a quick Q&A session with DJ Skee. The Taylor Gang signee served as a surprise guest and gave up details on how he managed to contribute to the group’s new “Everything 100” single. Before hitting the stage to close out SKEE Live with an exclusive tribute performance to Eazy-E, 2Pac and Biggie, Bone took the opportunity to answer a number of random questions from fans via Twitter.
