A rapper named Ryo Muranaka flew from Japan to Cleveland to meet Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and to give them his CD. But his luggage ended up getting stolen, he didn't have any money, and had only bought a one-way ticket.
His story eventually made the news, and Layzie Bone put him up in a hotel. Krayzie Bone weighed in on the situation and said he respects the man's passion.
"I commend him for his determination and passion for what he’s trying to do because I can relate. I’m quite sure he heard our story and how we pursued Eazy-E and this is what inspired him," Krayzie told HipHopDX. "But I will also say this to other fans and artist that are looking to do the same thing as us or this gentleman did — follow your dreams by all means, but you have to be very careful when you go to places you know nothing about."
"We’re not from the suburbs, we’re from the ghetto," he added. "The area we grew up in is not nice by any means, and I’m just thankful all they took from him was his luggage and not his life because it gets real like that. So, be very careful and have some kind of plan.”
Then Bizzy Bone heard about Muranaka's story and also stepped in to help.
"I’ll get the man a ticket to get back home," he said, “I’m putting my hands out there on behalf of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony to say we do care. And we just want to help the kid, and we appreciate him coming to see us.”
