Krayzie Bone and Big Heff are looking for the new hottest artist in Ohio the “Cleveland Is The City Project.” They are looking at connecting with the next generation of artist to bridge the gap and shine some light on Cleveland.
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony rose from the streets of Cleveland to become chart-topping, Grammy award-winning rap superstars in the 1990s. Their unique vocal technique, which blended R&B harmonies with fast-paced rhymes, caught the attention of N.W.A.’s Eazy-E, who signed them to Ruthless Records. Bone’s members have been active—both together and solo—since their 90s heyday. SONS OF ST. CLAIR follows Bizzy Bone and Krayzie Bone during the making of their 2017 collaboration New Waves. It’s a chance to break new ground again and an opportunity to appeal to a new generation.
“I came to Big Heff a few years back and I told him that I wanted put together an underground compilation of artist that were strictly Cleveland, Ohio. We agreed to work together on the project to make it happen. However it wasn’t done on the scale that I would’ve like to have seen it done on but, it gave me a chance to really seek out, and find a lot of raw talent in The Land.” -Krayzie Bone
