With the success of the last two Bone Thugs albums “Strength & Loyalty” (which sold over 500,000 copies on the strength of the smash single “I Tried” featuring Akon) and their most recent album “UNI-5: The World’s Enemy” (which peaked at #3, is currently #18 on Billboards Rap Charts, and has production by DJ U-Neek), Krayzie Bone finds himself in an ideal position to give his fans more of what they obviously been yearning for.
Including appearances from the rest of the iconic crew from Cleveland, Krayzie keeps it all in the family by including his fellow Bone Thugs-N-Harmony on several tracks on the album. “Lyrical Paraphernalia” also features the single “What Have I Become (Trouble)” where Krayzie takes on his life’s decisions and how they affect him on his day to day grind.
Founded in the early 90’s, the group was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance with their song “Tha Crossroads” from their E 1999 Eternal album.
In 1998, Krayzie recorded his solo debut, Thug Mentality 1999. The album was released as a double disc set, featuring a large selection of guest appearances
and was certified platinum by the RIAA. In 2001, Krayzie released Thug On Da Line with the album receiving positive reviews from music critics and went gold. Amazon.com also labeled it as one of the best albums of 2001. In 2006, Krayzie Bone was featured on “Ridin'” by Chamillionaire and received the “Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group” at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards.
They always say third time is a charm. With “The Fixtape Vol. 3: Lyrical Paraphernalia”, Krayzie Bone is making sure that holds true.
