Exclusive: Bizzy Bone, “Everybody Loves What We Are Doing Right Now”

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony group member Bizzy Bone is excited to be back in the game and giving fans what they love.

The legendary group, most known for the 90’s classic “Thuggish Ruggish Bone,” recently dropped their 10th studio album Art of War: World War III. All of the original group members, Bizzy Bone, Layzie Bone, Flesh Bone, Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone set aside their differences to team up for the big return, and according to Bizzy, they are on top.

“Everybody is loving what we are doing right now,” the rapper told HipHollywood while on the red carpet for Floyd Mayweather’s annual charity basketball game. “Right now Hip Hop is in a state of Internet, YouTube, different things of that nature. It’s so vast and there’s so much of it, it’s what lasts the tests of time. It’s really working right now,” he said.

But did the group find themselves changing to fit how the music industry has evolved? “It’s growing. Once you don’t get on the radio and people don’t see your change then it’s going to always hit them by surprise. Radio still rules,” he said.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
