The Aftermath: Krayzie Bone Talks Lauryn Hill’s Tax Problems, Nas’s ‘Illmatic’ Reissue and DMX’s Iyanla Vanzant Feud

Hip-Hop Media Training

Krayzie Bone, a founding member of the legendary hip-hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, sits in on the news segment of this episode of The Aftermath, the best music discussion on the ‘net, hosted by Soren Baker and me.

Krayzie empathizes with Lauryn Hill, who was given two weeks to settle her $1 million tax debt. “Trust me, it’s real easy to happen,” he says about getting into collections with the IRS.

Krayzie is impressed with the Get On Down’s reissue of Nas’ classic Illmatic album. The set comes in a wooden box, gold disc and includes liner notes in a hardcover book. “It’s time to put rap on that pedestal. We’ve been here for a long time … We need stuff like this,” Krayzie says while adding that he’d love to see Bone’s E. 1999 Eternal get the same treatment.

Krayzie was surprised when we showed him a few clips from DMX’s episode on Iyanla: Fix My Life. While Soren and I had a lot of criticisms for how Ms. Vanzant conducted her interrogation of the rap star, Krayzie offered support to his friend with whom he has toured. “I know DMX, he one of the homies, got nothing but love for him,” Krayzie said. “I just hope he do get his whole situation right and just keep doing what he doing. Just be strong and get through it.”
