IT ALL BEGINS with Layzie Bone, in a post Bone Thugs gig in a Nevada hotel room, surrounded by DJ Dreghost and a host of friends. It’s his 32nd birthday, but he’s offering service instead to just reveling in the pleasure. The trance chant comes to him from the room over DJ Dreghost’s banging beats, and he opens the pages and starts putting it down straight: "Blessed are you who hear the word of God/And follow it.“ The room of voices hollering “Blessed Are You!” straight back; not like some church on Sunday morning—though all these brothers come form the church originally (where’d you think those harmonies in Bone thugs come from?)-- but like the late night recognition of the truth being spoken at a party and everybody’s done getting lit up at the same time. They’re hollering right back on the 1! He’s reading some Wordz, right from the streets of 2000 years ago, spoken by a true revolutionary to a people in bondage; from the heart of his life as a former gang banger to his life now as a hip hop superstar. Layzie Bone sees a Greater Hand directing him and the lives of the rest of Bone Thugs –N-Harmony. He lays down those words because he knows they’re the truth, from the dawn 21st century, in the hip hop game to the truth that lies out in the wilderness of the world, be it on a corner, in an alley, or in a room full of 20,000 people hanging on every word.
