is celebrating the gold-selling status of their greatest hits CD by re-releasing
a "chopped & screwed" version of the album.
The group is also preparing two new releases under Swizz Beats' Full Surface
recording imprint, as well as Bone Thug Records.
Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Greatest Hits: Chopped & Screwed will be produced
by famed Swisha House producer Michael "5000" Watts.
"We have really been wanting to do a project like this
for a long time," Krayzie told AllHipHop.com. “We were on the screw
tip when DJ Screw first hit the scene. That is one of the main reasons [why]
when you listen to a lot of our beats, they are slowed down a little bit, because
that type of element that [chopping and screwing] brings influences us and the
style we have today."
The group is also working on a new studio album under Swizz Beat's Full Surface
record label, as well as an independent group record to be released under Bone
"We really like the position that we are in right now," Krayzie continued.
"We are just trying to put as much out there for our fans as possible.
[Our] greatest hits album going gold shows us that our presence is still being
felt in the game. We are going to definitely continue to bring the music that
our fans know and love, because that's all we know how to do."
In addition to releasing their greatest hits, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
have released a DVD that features a video compilation of the groups videos.
"The DVD is
doing well," Krayzie continued. "If it continues to do the numbers
it has been doing, we will probably do a re-release with additional videos or
some unreleased clips."
Although the group has a jam packed schedule, Krayzie is preparing for the launch
of his sneaker line with Authentiks, entitled TL Classics which is scheduled
to hit stores in January.
"We are starting the promotional run for [the TL Classics] in December,"
Krayzie said. “I am trying to be fresh with them and just really make
my presence known on the footwear side of things."
The shoes will be available in every color and with every purchase, consumers
will receive a bonus CD with an unreleased track from Krayzie Bone.
