[With rap stars keeping slain teenager Trayvon Martin's memory alive with tribute records, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's Krayzie Bone tells SOHH readers they have something special stirring up.]
We're definitely going to have to ride for Trayvon Martin and do something for the little homie. That's a tragedy in itself. We're all about people getting their justice and uplifting them. We're all about everything that's uplifting and positive.
We're 1,000 percent behind him. You "will" be hearing something from Bone Thugs about that Trayvon Martin situation. Trust me.
I done been in so many arguments with people over this whole Trayvon Martin situation. It can go so many ways. But what it all comes down to is nobody knows but God. And that's really what all matters. No matter who thinks someone is getting away with anything, if that man did it in self-defense, then God read his heart and knows that. If he didn't, then God knows that too.
We all need to quit being judges and just make sure we're right with God before our time comes. Everyone has to just live their life. It's a tragedy for what happened to that young brother but if you're really a believer in God, and I am, I follow the good book very close, we are all going to be victims of unforeseen circumstances.
It is what it is. We have to leave it in God's hands, bottom line.
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.
