Bizzy Bone started his solo career in 1998. He is best known for his style of combining rapid-fire raps, double harmony choruses, with a soft-spoken and high-pitched delivery. His solo debut, Heaven’z Movie, was critically acclaimed and certified Gold by the RIAA. The Gift, released on April 7, 2001, peaked at #2 on the US Billboard Independent Albums chart. Many of the songs on the album dealt with his personal life and childhood. In 2004, Bizzy released Alpha and Omega which showed a change in his musical and lyrical content. Fans and critics responded positively to the album. Bizzy followed up with the limited-edition internet album The Beginning and the End. Next, he released Speaking In Tongues on September 27, 2005. The title references an incident in which Bizzy Bone went on a spiritual rant during an interview on Houston radio station KPFT FM, speaking in tongues. It was met with positive reviews from critics, praising its gritty, lo-fi recording quality and Bizzy’s spiritually unhinged lyricism. He released four studio albums in 2006. Two of them, The Story and Midwest Cowboy, performed well on the charts, garnering further positive reviews from music critics.
In 2008, Bizzy Bone reunited with Layzie Bone to re-form Bone Brothers and release two new studio albums, Bone Brothers III and Still Creepin’ On Ah Come Up (released and credited solely as “Bone Thugs”). That year, Bizzy also released two new solo albums. The first, an independent release Ruthless, features guest appearances from Rick Ross and Pitbull. The other album was his major label release for After Platinum Records distributed through Virgin Records, A Song For You, which featured appearances from DMX, Joel Madden of Good Charlotte, Jim Jones, and Twista. A Song For You was heralded by music critics as Bizzy’s best album in years, if not the best of his entire solo career.[citation needed] In 2010, Bizzy Bone was one of the ensemble of featured artists for “We Are The World 25 for Haiti” after the country was devastated, left in ruins by a massive earthquake. The song was critically panned by music critics. 2010 would soon see the release of Bizzy Bone’s first rap rock album titled Crossroads 2010 on Sumerian Records. The album received positive feedback from fans and critics alike.
