Bizzy Bone Does it "For the Fans"

Grammy Award-winning rapper Bizzy Bone is set to release his new album, "For the Fans", exclusively online at www.BizzyBone-ForTheFans.com

(PRWEB) May 26, 2005 -- Grammy Award-winning rapper Bizzy Bone is gearing up for his latest online release, "For the Fans", a six-track collection of songs created exclusively for his fans in association with the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony online forum BTNHBoard.com at the website www.BizzyBone-ForTheFans.com.

Bizzy Bone, a member of the multi-platinum rap group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, won a Grammy Award in 1997 for his part in the Billboard Hot 100 #1 single "Tha Crossroads. Since then, he has released a number of highly successful solo albums, including the gold-selling "Heaven'z Movie" (1998) and the critically acclaimed "The Gift" (2001). In addition to his solo career, he has delivered three more albums with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, with a new project in the works slated to be released later this year.

On "For the Fans", Bizzy delivers his trademarked fierce and quick-tongued style on tracks such as "Babylon" and "Who Tha Thug", while taking it down a notch for the LL Cool J-inspired number "Have You Ever Been Lonely?" and "A Letter", delving into his personal and spiritual life. Bizzy also experiments with an unusual, almost sermon-like style of rapping on the song "Priceless" and switches it up on the orchestra-laced "Clockwise."

"For the Fans" is available for purchase exclusively at www.BizzyBone-ForTheFans.com and is being pressed in a limited one thousand-copy run. The first one hundred fans to order the album have had their names printed in the album's booklet.

The members of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony are no strangers to the online music community. In 2003, member Krayzie Bone released his album "The Legends" under his alias LeathaFace on BoneThugRecords.com. In 2004, Bizzy Bone released "The Beginning and The End" on BizzyBoneMusic.com.

Bizzy Bone's latest album, "Bone Brothers", a duet with fellow Bone Thugs-n-Harmony member Layzie Bone, has sold more than 60,000 copies since its release in February, backed by the single "Hip Hop Baby", which also featured Krayzie Bone.

For the Fans is scheduled to be released on June 7th, 2005.
