Bone Thugs-n-Harmony is an American hip hop group from Cleveland, Ohio. It consists of rappers Krayzie Bone, Layzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, Wish Bone and Flesh-n-Bone. Eazy-E signed Bone Thugs-n-Harmony to Ruthless Records in late 1993, and they made their major-label debut in 1994 with the release of their EP Creepin on ah Come Up. The EP included their breakout hit single "Thuggish Ruggish Bone". 

In 1995, the group released their second album E. 1999 Eternal, which included the hit songs "1st of tha Month" and "East 1999". Their tribute to the recently deceased Eazy-E, "Tha Crossroads", won a Grammy Award in 1997. The Art of War, the group's third album, was also released in 1997. In 2000, BTNHResurrection reached platinum in one month. Their 2002 album, Thug World Order, received more moderate sales and promotion, going Gold and peaking at #3 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. After the album the group went on hiatus and released their sixth studio album Thug Stories independently before returning in 2007 with the major label release Strength & Loyalty, this time released by Swizz Beatz's label Full Surface Records. Bune Thugs-n-Harmony officially returned with the release of their 2010 album Uni-5: The World's Enemy on their own record label, BTNH Worldwide.

Due to conflicts within the group, longtime members Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone officially left the group in April 2011 to work with their independent label, The Life Ent. They later returned to the group in 2012, officially re-unifying the group. In August 2013, Layzie Bone announced that he would be stepping aside to work more on his solo career.
