Check some highlights from the last time they came through Canada, when our own Amalia Judith sat down with Krayzie and Bone…
HipHopCanada: Any differences you guys notice North of the border?
Wish: The money. You guys are pretty much the same; the same cars, drive on the same side of the road, stop lights- pretty much the same. Just feels like the West Coast.
Krayzie: This is about as at home as I feel in any country – cause even though we in another country I’m used to everything here.
HipHopCanada: So you two are touring as Bone Thugs n Harmony, what’s the relationship with the other members of the group?
Krayzie: We all still down. Me and Wish, we have a record label together, The Life Entertainment. We’ve been concentrating on developing the artists we have cause we’re looking to launch a global label. We have artists from all over the world so that’s something we’re really concentrating on. But at the same time we’re doing songs together as Bone Thugs n Harmony, to give the fans what they want. The other members are getting together and doing the same thing.
HipHopCanada: Has there been any defining moments that changed who you were and how you saw the world?
Wish: Definitely. For me it had to be the death of Eazy E that signed us. Right when we got in the game and got a little popularity, he died. It was a really scary moment for us cause we had to learn to figure out a lot of things at that point. His wife took over the company and all that, but it was still a different relationship that we had to get used to. At that point I thought it was over, I thought it was back to the block.
Krayzie: It’s been a lot of different things that changed me. Being robbed in the music business, being taken advantage of as an artist, family issues like losing loved ones – just surviving those things have made me who I am today, made me a better person. Like they say, experience is the best teacher, made me a strong person.
