Biopics are popping up everywhere nowadays from N.W.A. to Tupac. It seems like hip-hop artists are taking their stories to the big screen. Now according to sources, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony may be next in line to get their story told with West Coast pioneer Ice Cube.
This will be an exciting story for all of the hip-hop fans to see. The group has been through a lot individually and as a whole from Flesh N Bone’s 10-year prison sentence, Krayzie Bone’s health issues, breakups, makeups, Grammy Awards, and the death of their legendary mentor Eazy-E.
“Flesh did 10 years. It was really hard, especially when you know what you were taken away from. Flesh knows his actions—he had to man-up for the way he was acting. He was wilin’ out in the worst way imaginable. It supposed to be a movie already,” Krayzie Bone said.
Towards the end of the Straight Outta Compton biopic, there’s a scene Krayzie states would be the perfect scene to pick up at. He also believes partnering with Cube could turn the idea into reality.
“The way they set it up by bringing the cassette tape in the hospital room with Eazy—that’s where we want to pick the movie up. I had some conversations with Ice Cube when we did How The West Was Won concert a few months ago. I told him I wanted to sit down and if he wanted to hear our story, I guaranteed he would think it was interesting. He was like, ‘Hell yeah, let me know when you want to sit down.”
“We would have so many elements. We would have N.W.A elements. We would have 2Pac and Biggie, and Big Pun. People don’t even know Fat Joe was a big part of our career. He was the first artist we clicked with. The whole Terror Squad took us in as family. We knew Big Pun before he was Big Pun. His first debut was on Flesh-N-Bone album. People don’t even know that,” Krayzie said.
Bizzy Bone likes the idea of Bone Thugs releasing a biopic. Bizzy’s co-signing of the film is important for it actually to happen.
“[The movie idea]’s been floating around. We are totally focused on our future. [The biopic] is totally something that needs to be discussed and examined. That’s our Uncle Cube right there. That’s the first guy we’re going to go to. What’s crazy about this whole thing—where that movie was shot in that studio, where they made ‘Fuck The Police’—we got harassed by the police over there. We made ‘Thuggish Ruggish Bone’ in that studio. We made a lot of our songs there. It’s historic. I think the movie is still being made and that’s where we are right now. We gotta talk to Uncle Cube,” Bizzy said.
As of now Bone Thugs is focused on making new music which will include a Krayzie and Bizzy duet album.
