Representatives for Bone Thugs-N-Harmony have come forward to clarify earlier reports about Krayzie Bone’s status with the group.

Last week, a press release issued about the group made no mention of Krayzie. Representatives for the group have confirmed with AllHipHop.com that Krayzie Bone is still a member of Bone Thugs and was left out of the press release inadvertently. Krayzie, Wish, Layzie and Flesh-N-Bone are currently recording a new album, in addition to working on an untitled book project.
