bone thugs harmony krayzie boneKrayzie Bone’s lightning cadence still blazes through the haunting darkness of E.1999 Eternal. On the 1995 Bone Thugs-N-Harmony classic, Krayzie dubbed himself “Mr. Sawn Off Leathaface” as tribute to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’s lead psychopath. Since, the rapper, real name Anthony Henderson, crafted himself as an iconic rap antagonist. From Bone Thugs’ séance ode “Mr. Ouija” to claiming evil overpowers his innate goodness on 2001’s Gemini: Good vs. Evil, the 42 year old has often dabbled with malevolence to impact the listener. However, Krayzie’s now exchanged being a thug soldier for being a soldier of God. He claims to have found salvation and discovered what he’d been missing. During our interview, the father of eight spoke candidly about being a Jehovah’s Witness, the Illuminati, and why he believes the devil is very real. There’s plenty of Bone Thugs nerd trivia amongst the spiritual vibes too.

I had chills, and I was like, “Yo, this is what I want to do when I get older.” It just hit me right there.
