For the first time in more than a decade Cleveland rap crew Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are a quintet.
Stanley "Flesh N Bone" Howse, 34 who has spent the last 10 years in prison for brandishing an AK-47 at a friend was released Monday, July 13 from a California penitentiary.
All hiphop.com reports that Howse was greeted by friends and family including crew members Krayzie, Layzie (a.ka. his brother Steven Howse), Bizzy and Wish Bone.
âIt feels amazing, refreshing, exciting [and] I'm so happy for him to finally come home to his family and friends and fans,â Bone Thugâs longtime manager Steve Lobel told AllHipHop.com. âFlesh is a very great, loving, talented, creative individual. We have a lot of memories together. Hopefully we can have more.â
The group which recently reunited with troubled member Bizzy Bone is now back to full strength and is already in the studio working on their follow-up to the gold selling Strength & Loyalty from 2007 which featured only Krayzie, Layzie, and Wish Bone.
The album is expected to be released on Interscope through hip hop producer Swizz Beatz's Full Surface label.
