Bone Thugs Furious Over Krayzie's Exit, "He Might As Well Say 'F*ck Eazy-E"
As the water continues to boil over Krayzie Bone's unexpected departure from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony last week, two remaining group members have lashed out at their ex-group mate.
Remaining members Flesh-N-Bone and Layzie Bone said Krayzie is hurting the group's legacy.
TMZ spoke with two of the remaining members, Flesh-n-Bone and Layzie Bone -- who told us they think Krayzie is a "dumb !!" for leaving the group because Bone Thugs "made him who he is." In fact, Flesh tells us, "Krayzie might as well say 'F**k Eazy-E' because he is disrespecting Eazy-E's legacy by leaving the group." FYI -- Eazy-E is credited with discovering the group back in the early '90s. Flesh says the group will continue to record music -- adding, "Let [Krayzie] walk away ... Bone Thugs will be here regardless. The group will not be affected by Krayzie going ... he knows where home is." (TMZ)
Earlier this week, Flesh also hit the airwaves to dish out his personal feelings toward Krayzie.
"What the f*ck do people mean it ain't no Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, because Krayzie's b*tch a** decided he wanted to quit? Man f*ck Krayzie homie. Put that in the paper. Check this out, check this out...Bone Thugs-N-Harmony gonna keep moving as Bone Thugs-N-Harmony man...Bone Thugs-N-Harmony don't consist of no mother f*ckin Krayzie Bone man, it consists of Flesh,Bizzy, Wish -- and Layzie. Just because one n*gga decided to quit don't mean its over for Bone Thugs-N-Harmony...Listen to what I'm telling you, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is on a world wild motherf*cking tour." (Z-107.9)
Prior to Flesh's remarks, Bone Thugs issued a statement on their former group member's decision.
"Let's be clear, Bone Thugs n Harmony the band/brand did not and does not break up. A single member has parted ways on another mission in life and we wish him love and success," a spokes person told AllHipHop.com exclusively. "BTNH World Wide the brand continues to functions 307 days a year globally, and will continue to do so with respect to its business partners and the great Fan Family." (All Hip Hop)
Krayzie turned heads after announcing his departure and said it was a natural part of his growth as an artist.
"I will no longer be a part of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony," Krayzie revealed in a video. "Due to uncontrollable circumstances, it's basically time for me to move on and just start embarking on different endeavors I've already had planned in my life. Just trying to go to a whole other level in the music game, I am trying to grow and become greater at what I do." (Bone Thugs Promotion)
