Petulant Man-Child Bizzy Bone Just Showed Us Exactly Why He Was Always Left At Home and Out of the Lineup
In what was set to be undoubtedly one of the dopest VERZUZ battles ever, the showdown between Three 6 Mafia and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony nearly goes up in flames when out-of-control egos enter the mix.
Before I go in, let me add a small, but necessary disclaimer.
I’m a Cleveland girl — born and raised.
So by default, I am a BONE FAN through and through. They literally were the soundtrack to my childhood.
They emerged on the scene in 1994 and put the city of Cleveland, Ohio on the map like no other musical act had ever done.
The whole city was so proud to call them our own. They are historical hometown legends in their own right.
As a 80s-baby millennial who grew up in the 90s, I’m also a fan of Three 6 Mafia — after all, their music practically defines my high school and college years.
So, like everyone, when I heard that these two rival hip-hop pioneer groups were finally coming together to do their long-anticipated VERZUZ battle, I was really looking forward to seeing them together on the same stage in the spirit of their artistry, giving the fans the mashup we’ve been begging for and debating over for decades.
Hell, just 2 weeks ago my husband and I got in a heated, although friendly debate about which group (Bone or Three 6) made the most significant impact in the rap world with their similar rap styles and hurried cadence and tempo by which they spit their lyrics.
But that’s not what happened.
In true, what-the-hell-is-wrong-with-Bizzy-Bone fashion, he flipped out and had the tantrum of all tantrums — hurling a bottle at Juicy J over some form of disagreement that has been brewing for decades.
For fans who have wondered for YEARS:
“Where is Bizzy Bone?”
“Why isn’t Bizzy Bone performing, too?”
“Is Bizzy Bone gonna be there?”
“I wonder why he never performs with the group anymore.”
You got your answer tonight.
The man is petty, mentally unsound, and has a history of letting his emotions get in the way, managing to “f-up the bag” with his spoiled, entitled attitude and addiction issues.
Plain and simple.
This man is a liability.
See for yourself. In the ‘rona era, now is not the time to be blowing sporadic bags over childish beef.
While backstage after the brawl, he unloaded while cameras were rolling:
After the melee settled down, the groups were able to continue performing and give the fans what they wanted.
The show had an all-star lineup of special guests that included, Lil’ Wayne, La Chat, 8 Ball & MJG, Lil’ John, Lil’ Flip and surprisingly actor Terrance Howard, who performed the cultural hit “It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp” from 2005’s Hustle & Flow.
But the mood of the evening was already tainted by Bizzy Bone’s childish antics with people understandably on edge.
Thankfully, Bizzy Bone returned to the stage after he realized what a colossal f-up this was on such a historic night and apologized to the crowd, Juicy J, and vowed to keep the celebration going.
This isn’t the first time Bizzy Bone has shown his “natural behind” as the elders would say.
In 2018, he made headlines for pulling his Elmer Fudd model double barrel shot-gun on Instagram live to taunt hip-hop group Migos and rapper 21 Savage.
He did himself zero favors with this now-viral live, where he was visibly intoxicated, unhinged, angry, and police were eventually called.
I’ll give it to him.
If there’s one thing Bizzy Bone knows how to do, that is cement himself in history.
He first made headlines as an abducted child who appeared at the end of the infamous made-for-TV movie about the abduction and murder of Adam Walsh, which notably ended with a reel that featured missing and endangered children in the 1980s.
He detailed his harrowing childhood abduction story on America’s Most Wanted in 2002.
This is yet another hip-hop moment that we’ll be talking about for years to come.
Fans of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Three 6 Mafia finally got what they’ve been waiting for for nearly 20 years when these two powerhouse groups finally took the stage together.
As the dust settles, there’s certainly more fall-out to come from this developing story.
It’s one I will be closely following, for sure.
