1. Gonna Miss Everybody
There’s nothing wrong with a little change in your life and it appears to be the case with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Despite the Cleveland, Ohio rappers finally reuniting over the summer and announcing touring plans, one key member has decided to pack his bags and look for greener pastures. TwitLonger has his explanation:
What up my fan Family. i just want to take this time to let you know that I’m not part of any of the “Everything 100″ shows that are scheduled. I know everyone is asking Where you been Layzie?
Well I’m letting yall know that I’ve been working on My brand new album “Perfect Timing” & Building My Brand Harmony Howse Entertainment. I’m doing what makes sense right now for my family and my self which is building my own brand.
I will be performing with Bone thugs n Harmony at the Rock the Bells dates and for a TV Appearance with them, but after that I am not obligated to do anything else with Bone Thugs N Harmony.
Let the record show that I’m part of 1 deal with Bone thugs n harmony which is only the single for “Everything 100″ Which is all i’m obligated for.
I would like to Thank you all kindly for your support!!! If you would like up to date information on Me, Harmony Howse Entertainment and my Artists please check out my official websites & social networks.

Without Layzie Bone, can the group still thrive? It seems a bit odd to formally announce your exit from the crew that you became famous with. Couldn’t he build his own brand and still be a part of BTNH? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
2. It’s Over
The days of winning NBA championships seem well in the past and even though Tony Parker came one win short of winning an NBA title, the bottom line is he didn’t. This really comes as a surprise but he’s ready to hang it up. Project Spurs is on it:
Back in 2007, Parker launched a French rap album which included singles such as “Balance-tois,” “Premier Love,” and “Top of the Game.”
In a recent interview with French site Tele-Loisirs, Parker was asked if he had any plans to release another rap album but he made it clear he has retired from the music business.
[H]e confirms that his career is over, ”I’m retired from music.”
Despite the jokes many had at TP’s rap career and the lack of success in the U.S., he did find success in his home country of France. His single, “Balance-tois,” reached number one in the SNEP official French chart and was tops for one week.
His videos included teammate Tim Duncan and former teammates Brent Barry, Robert Horry and Nazr Mohammed. In the video for “Balance-tois,” it featured his ex-wife actress Eva Longoria.
This music endeavor was probably sparked by his free-style rap performance when the Spurs took home the 2007 NBA crown. While at the fan celebration, Parker took the mic and showed off his French rapping skills. (Project Spurs)
Tony’s days of rapping are officially over. Could this ultimately help him put the focus back on trying to win another NBA championship? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
3. Warning Shots
Just when it looked like peace and harmony was going down in the New York rap scene, Kendrick Lamar proclaims himself the “King of NY” and now rappers are back to beefing with one another. Freck Billionaire has a pretty noticeable warning aimed at Uncle Murda’s head.
Shots fired? Freck even takes a pretty big jab at Jay Z on this track. Will there be any response from Uncle Murda? #SOHHWhatchaThink?
That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
