Krayzie Bone Signs New Artist; Beef Erupts Over Label Name
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony group member Krayzie Bone has launched a new imprint and signed a new artist to his company, The Life Entertainment, but the label name has caused friction with some former associates.
Krayzie Bone recently signed a 12-year-old singer named Jenna Sousa to The Life Entertainment and according to Krayzie Bone, music lovers will be impressed with his young signee.
"She is definitely talented. I've never really seen anybody her age that can do the things that she does," Krayzie said in a statement. "She's really serious about her music and I can see that when she's in there working. When she comes out, she's going to make a statement, definitely."
Yesterday, (September 22nd), Bone Thugs-N-Harmony kicked off the "E. 1999 Eternal Tour," a 35-city nationwide outing, in Boise, Idaho.
The tour launched minus estranged group member Bizzy Bone, who revealed that he was finished with the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony in an exclusive interview said last month.
Hopes of reconciliation between the group and Bizzy Bone may be put on hold indefinitely, due to grievances raised by former Mo' Thug family member Ta Smallz, over the name of Krazyie's label.
According to Ta Smallz, he has been releasing records using the "Life Entertainment" name since 1999, although his first official release came when he dropped Having My Way, in 2006.
Ta Smallz' recently released his latest album Who Killed My Mama?!, which contains the lead single, ironically titled "Life" featuring Bizzy Bone, who has reportedly sided with Ta Smallz.
"F**k you Krazie Bone and the whole f**kin Thug Line Entertainment," Ta Smallz fumed. "Who is The Life Entertainment trying to steal my name. Pac didn't even like you b***h let the truth be told Pac f**ked with Bizzy he was the only one with Pac recording a song in the studio. You are out here selling me and Bizzy Bone records on your website because none of your records ain't selling."
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's E. 1999 Eternal Tour is slated to wrap up October 30th in Albuquerque, New Mexico at The Sunshine Theater.
