Singled Out: "We've Done This For 20 Years, We Were Never The Type To Stay In One Genre"

[SOHH highlights a hot record each Tuesday and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Raheem DeVaughn broke down his "Trigga Man" anthem, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's Flesh-N-Bone and Krayzie Bone decode their new "Everything 100" single.]
"Everything 100" came together pretty fast. The producer put it together, put it on the table and Ty Dollar Sign graced us with a dope hook and we iced it out real cool. We were working on a few things, working on this one situation, and then we heard the track and it was so dope and the hook was so cold, we just had to smash on it.
That's how it really came together. All five of us got on there, one, two, three, four, five. Bam! We just knocked out it and this is what we have right now. We're shooting the music video and it looks icey right now. We're getting it in.
It's a great situation. Bone Thugs has been needing a good feeling like this and we finally got it. -Flesh-N-Bone
We managed to get Ty Dollar Sign on there because his people knew our people, from my understanding.
He had actually been sending us tracks for a while but it just so happened that this was the one everyone really hooked up on.
It just took some organization through the management and being patient. Once everybody got on the same page, we just went into the studio and when we heard the track, we were like, "This is like Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. This is the new generation Bone Thugs right now."
I know a lot of our diehard, cult-following fans might be a little upset with us but we've been in the game for 20 years, we've been doing this for 20 years, we were never the type to stay in one genre. You can't keep Bone Thugs in a box. We like to experiment with different stuff.
To be alive and having fun now, those dark days are over. We're vibing right now. We're having fun with our craft right now. The music video is the vibe of everyone being together. It's just a wonderful feeling to have the whole family back and being one again. We're doing what we love to do and that's making music. -Krazyie Bone
Graced with a quick and sometimes sung delivery, along with a unique sense of melody, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony burst out of Cleveland, Ohio in the mid-'90s with a pair of massive hits ("Thuggish Ruggish Bone" and "Tha Crossroads") along with a great first album, as well as a successful follow-up, and then quickly unraveled. Mainstream interest dropped off toward the tail end of the '90s, but the group, which underwent a series of lineup changes, continued to release new material via mixtapes and albums throughout the 2000s.
