Bizzy Bone, a member of the legendary hip-hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, recently revealed a traumatic incident from his childhood… being kidnapped.
During an interview with Blurred Culture, the 38-year-old rap vet recalled how he moved around a lot during his youth, living with a variety of family members, but was kidnapped for a span of two years.
With the help of America’s Most Wanted, Bizzy was eventually found, and moved to Cleveland with his sisters.
“Before I was Bizzy Bone I was always — As a kid I was stuck with monumental things that happened in my life,” Bizzy explained. “Kinda tragic. Music was always an escape… I had a two, three year stint with my mom. I was kidnapped after that for two years. John Walsh helped lead the charge in finding me. A few psychics and so on and so forth. And then after that I was in foster homes running around…”
After arriving in Cleveland is whan he first met Layzie, which would become the beginning of the grou.
“I get down there [Cleveland, Ohio]. I was selling dope. Was actually selling dope in the dopehouse and I met Layzie Bone,” Bizzy recalled. “And from that day on — First, I became Wishbone and we went through our Bone Thugs story. Look out for the movie. We went through our thing. And from about 14, 15-years-old up until this very day we’ve been friends, comrades, business associates. But that’s who I was before Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.”
