Bizzy Bone is a renowned American rapper and singer. Bone, whose real name is Bryon Anthony McCane II, was born in Columbus, Ohio. Bone was four years old when he and his two siblings were kidnapped by his mother’s boyfriend at the time. They were held captive together for two years and during that period the siblings lived in houses, cars, apartments, and motels across Oklahoma. The police were eventually alerted and the siblings were returned to their mother. Bone met the future members of the rap group Bone-Thugs-n-Harmony during his early teens.
In 1992, Bone helped co-found hip-hop group Bone Enterpri$e which was renamed to Bone-Thugs-n-Harmony by rapper Eazy-E of the famous American hip-hop group N.W.A. The group released their first album, “Faces of Death”, in 1993. Bone started his solo career six years later with the release of his first solo album, “Heaven’z Movie”, in 1998. The album was awarded gold certification by the Recording Industry Association of America. In 2005, Bone and fellow Bone-Thugs-n-Harmony member Layzie Bone formed a duo called ‘Bone Brothers’ and they released an album under this new group.
The duo reunited in 2008 to release two more albums. Bone’s solo album was released that same year. “A Song For You” featured a host of talented artists from different musical genres including acclaimed rapper DMX and rockstar Joel Madden. Bone released several albums during the late 2010s and early 2020s including “Carbon Monoxide” which debuted at the third-most top spot on the iTunes album chart.
