Dre To Be Featured On New Bone Album

Posted By on September 8, 2006

Krayzie Bone’s been “Ridin” high lately with Chamillionaire, but he hasn’t forgotten his harmonious roots.

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Krayzie’s group since the early ’90s, have two new albums on the horizon, beginning with September 19’s Thug Stories.

That album, the follow-up to 2002’s Thug World Order, marks the group’s first release as a trio, since Bizzy Bone is no longer in the group, leaving Krayzie, Layzie Bone and Wish Bone (Flesh-N-Bone is serving a 10-year sentence for armed assault.) The first single is the just-released “Don’t Stop.”

While Thug Stories is a somewhat low-key affair, the second new Bone Thugs album, expected in late 2006, is being overseen by Swizz Beatz (who brought the group to Interscope Records) and will feature a bevy of big names.

“We got Dr. Dre, we got Three 6 Mafia, we got Kanye West, we got a lot of people on the album,” Krayzie said. “We got Mariah Carey. She promised that she was gonna do a song with us once, and she kept her promise.”

Akon and Ice Cube also show up on the album, which has yet to be titled, and verses Flesh-N-Bone recorded behind bars may also appear.

“Everybody is excited to come back, ’cause Bone is where it started from,” said Krayzie, who is also developing a sneaker line called TL Classics.
