Bone Thugs-N-Harmony To be Honored with Street Naming in Cleveland

The group’s second album title was inspired by their hometown.

Bone Thugs-N-Harmony is being honored in a major way in their hometown of Cleveland.

According to Rock The Bells, on Aug. 11,  the intersection of E. 99th Street and St. Clair Avenue will be renamed “Bone Thugs-n-Harmony Way,” honoring the legendary hip-hop group.

Spread the Love Foundation, Cleveland City Councilman Anthony Hairston, and Ward 10 will lead the event. The ceremony will begin at noon and last for about two hours.

The street location served as the inspiration behind the title of the group’s sophomore album E. 1999 Eternal, which was released in 1996. The project spawned several notable tracks, including hit singles “1st of tha Month” and “Tha Crossroads.” The album was ultimately nominated in the Grammy Awards’ Best Rap Album category.

“Growing up on that street was crazy,” group member Krayzie Bone said of the street’s location. “We had many, many adventures on that street. We got in so much trouble. Our street was 99th and St. Clair, but we renamed our street because of the two nine —the 99 — we called it ‘Double Glock.’”
