Bone Thug's Give Fans Free Music For Christmas; Talk New Album

Cleveland rap group Bone Thugs-n-Harmony will give their fans a Christmas this year with the release of the FixTape Vol 3: Special Delivery.

The mixtape was slated to be released today (December 22), but the group delayed the album to ensure fans received the highest quality of material from the group.

The FixTape Vol 3: Special Delivery will now be released on December 25th as a present to the group’s longtime fan base.

"We decided to release this project on the day that our fan family are celebrating a day of giving special deliveries to their loved ones, Dec 25,2009,” Layzie Bone told “Initially we planned to release it on Dec 22,2009 (and we still are going to give them one song) but we want to give them our total gift on a much more meaningful day to them."

Various members of the group will reveal more details about the mixtape on their website and during a live Ustream event later today.

Group member Flesh-n-Bone expressed enthusiasm about the direction of Bone’s mixtape and album, Uni5: The World’s Enemy.

Last week, the group released snippets of the album, which has a planned release date in March.

“It feels good to be back as a full family and team with my brothers after all the years apart from one another,” Flesh-n-Bone told “We have been working at a steady and focused pace. One day at a time, one fan at a time we are working hard to truly give the world a special delivery on March 2, 2010. Stay ready so you won't have to get ready."
