Published Oct 22, 2009All five original members of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony reunited at a press conference in Los Angeles yesterday (October 21) to announce their next album together, Uni5: The World's Enemy.
"It's an amazing feeling, being together after all this time," said Flesh-N-Bone. "We're bringing a lot of new energy. It's Bone Thugs reinvented once again."
Flesh was released from prison last year after serving an eight-year sentence for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Wish Bone spoke about the quintet's unity, likening the Bone Thugs to the Jackson 5, and said Flesh's return completed the group.
"Without him, we ain't all together," Wish Bone said. "By him coming home, it just put all the pieces to the puzzle together."
Uni5: The World's Enemy is expected to come out December 22 on Warner Bros. The group said it will feature no other rappers - though possibly some R&B singers - and a number of up-and-coming producers.
"We wanted to give those opportunities just like we were given opportunities," said Krayzie Bone.
Veteran producers such as DJ U-Neek and LT Hutton will also contribute.
Bone Thugs, who hail from Cleveland, OH, have sold nearly 30 million albums worldwide. In 1997, the group took home a Grammy award for best rap performance for their song "Tha Crossroads," off their E. 1999 Eternal album.
