Critically-acclaimed rapper Krayzie Bone has signed with LA-based Ball’r Records to release his new solo album.
Krayzie, known for his work with the famed super-group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, as well as his platinum-selling solo projects, Thug Mentality 1999 and Thug on Da Line, signed with the company because of the label’s respect for musicians. “When it comes to Ball’r, they deliver,” said the Grammy-award winning artist.
Jack G, Ball’r Records CEO and Executive Producer, is excited about the opportunity to have such a multi-talented artist on the label and points to a bright future between the artist and the company. “It’s time for Krayzie to shine, and Ball’r Records is going to bring him back stronger than ever,” he said.
Krayzie is currently recording his highly anticipated Ball’r debut, due for release in the spring. This album, yet untitled, features the artist’s most introspective and creative work of his career. The first single is scheduled to hit radio mid-February.
“This album is undeniably a masterpiece that will touch all people. Krayzie is ahead of his time,” said Barbara Pescosolido, Vice President of Operations for Ball’r Records.
Krayzie Bone spearheaded one of rap's leading familes, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony by obtaining the group’s deal with now-deceased NWA front man, Eazy-E. In 1994, he was responsible for plotting the group's groundbreaking debut, the multi-platinum release of Creepin On Ah Come Up , spending more than 70 weeks on the Billboard's Top 200 album chart and achieving critical, musical and commercial breakthrough status. With his legendary style, Krayzie created a more thought provoking side of hip-hop with innovative rap melodies on some of the biggest songs of the genre, including Tha Crossroad,1st Of Tha Month, and Thuggish Ruggish Bone.
