Bizzy Bone. He’s been described as a drunk, a trouble-maker and even a schizophrenic. There’s no denying that life hasn’t been easy for the 27-year-old rapper. Over the past two years, he’s had to endure the raft of Bone Thugs N Harmony and the murder of his brother Capo – all of which turned him to the bottle.
By 2004, a more focused Bizzy emerged and put down the bottle. He hit the studio at any given opportunity and in late 2004 released Alpha and Omega. But in the midst of the fall tour, it was pulled.
Now he’s back with a new found peace. To celebrate his new birth, the man we knew for his head of hair has shaved it all. Things are different this time around…I guess.
Chronicmagazine.com: You’ve been missing in action for a while. You released Alpha and Omega and The Beginning and The End and then you just went away.
Bizzy: Y’all have been missing. I’ve been here.
Chronicmagazine.com: What have we been missing?
Bizzy: There’s a lot of stuff going on. I’ve shot movies. I’ve been through a few things. I shot a couple of videos. I wrote a few things down. I’ve been working, but no one’s been paying attention because their minds have been elsewhere. I was on the Maury Povich show.
Chronicmagazine.com: Tell me about that.
Bizzy: I needed some love and a young lady by the name of Petra came pass and gave me all the love that I needed. That was pretty much the thick of it. You can download it on www.bizzybonemusic.com.
Chronicmagazine.com: Let’s start with the movies. What have you been working on?
Bizzy: We did a movie “Praise Alpha and Omega.”
Chronicmagazine.com: That goes with the album?
Bizzy: Yes, yes. We actually gave that movie away for free so people could really get their eyes on what was really going on. We’re also looking into doing something with Pam Grier. I’m working on a nice educational film that’s going to be shot in Miami and NY. “Jacked Up” was shot in Columbus. We also shot a movie in Hot Springs, Arkansas called “The Color of a Dream” with Sherman Hemsley and a few other people. I just shot a video with Lil’ Layzie. I put out a duet album with Layzie, but it’s really another Bones album. There’s a lot of work on the table.
Chronicmagazine.com: Do you like the acting more than the music?
Bizzy: It’s really not a choice. The acting is more professional. When you’re doing movies, it’s more of a professional feel. You have to put more into it than just going into the studio. But it’s all a business. Everything is numbers. You have to keep an eye on the money. People get very stingy with the paper. It’s like that everywhere you go. When you’re dealing with good people, you don’t have anything to worry about, but you know immediately when you’re dealing with a shyster. You know that immediately because things come up short. This happens here. This happens there. As long as you’re getting your money, there’s absolutely no problem. Arguments, conversations and disagreements will be there, but as long as you’re getting your money, everything will be okay.
Chronicmagazine.com: Has that put a damper on the creative process for you?
Bizzy: I don’t know. Sometimes I feel as though it might. I don’t know how different people work. I don’t know where their juices flow from. Some people’s juices flow from being comfortable. Some people’s creative juices flow out of struggle. It just really depends on what type of person you’re dealing with. It’s always a hassle to have to deal with that aspect of the business. You’ve got to be CEO, COO, CFO, President, janitor, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary. But you don’t have
