Hip hop super group Bone Thugs N Harmony have sold more than 15 million records, won a Grammy and have worked with rap royalty like Notorious BIG, TuPac and Easy E. Now founding members Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone are coming to Victoria, and they’re bringing some of their friends, artists on their new label The Life Entertainment, with them on their 13 date Canadian tour.

“Even though it’s just the two of us, people can expect the same energy,” says Krayzie Bone. “We’re out here promoting our new label so we got some of our artists with us. There’s gonna be a lot of energy, good music, definitely gonna bring the classics and some new stuff. There’s good variety and non-stop action in this show.”

The Life artists The Bum Keef G, Pozition and Sin Marlee are accompanying Krayzie and Wish Bone on tour. The Life has also signed some pop artists including Natasha Eloise (a young pop artist from Australia) and Jenna Sousa (13-year-old American YouTube sensation).

“We’re trying to mix it up a little,” says Krayzie. “I grew up listening to all kinds of music and I listen to a lot of genres of music, not just rap. I don’t want people to put me in a box. If it sounds good, I’m into it.”

Krayzie started ThugLine Entertainment back in 1998, but recently changed the name to The Life Entertaiment to appeal to a broader range of artists.

“I got older and I really wanted a more global appeal,” says Krayzie. “I wanted the empire I’m trying to build into a household name.”

Both Krayzie and Wish are working on solo albums which should drop later this year. Krayzie’s album is titled Chasing the Devil, but he says fans can expect it to be a really balanced record.

“Because of the title people expecting it to be dark but I’m making sure that I balance it out. I don’t want to make it too hard. In the studio everyday and there’ll be a little bit of everything: deep, dark, radio, hard core and street.”

The two emcees are also working on a collaborative album to be released on their website later this year. Check them out Wed, Jan. 25 at 9 p.m. at Club 9one9. Tickets are $25. M
