More info:

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony is a Grammy Award winning American gangsta rap group from Cleveland, Ohio, known for their fast rapping style and harmonizing vocals. The group is the best-selling rap group of all time, with thirty-five million albums sold worldwide.[1] They have also won numerous awards, including a 1997 Grammy in the category of Best Rap Performance for "Tha Crossroads".

Formed in the early 1990s and discovered by Eazy-E, the group was originally known as "B.O.N.E. Enterpri$e" and consisted of Krayzie Bone, Layzie Bone, Wish Bone, and Bizzy Bone. They recorded their first album Faces of Death under this name in early 1991. Soon after, Flesh-n-Bone (Layzie Bone's brother) was added to the group.

Their career took off in the mid 1990s after heading to Los Angeles on a Greyhound bus in search of N.W.A leading member Eazy-E. They auditioned over the phone to him in hopes of securing a record deal, but Eazy-E's promise to call them back went unfulfilled. Discovering that Eazy-E was performing in Cleveland, Flesh-n-Bone had to work at KFC so they could make enough money to afford a bus. Upon arrival in Cleveland, the group auditioned in person and they were promptly signed to a contract with Eazy-E's Ruthless Records.
