Bizzy Bone Signs Solo Deal with Virgin Records
Bizzy Bone, formerly of the group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, has reportedly inked a solo deal with Virgin Records. Although Bizzy has kept busy since his departure from the group, releasing several solo projects since 1998s Heaven'z Movie, his debut album with Virgin will be the first such project distributed by a major label. The disc, entitled A Song For You, is due out in early 2007 and will be released in conjunction with Imperial Records, a division of Caroline/EMI Music. As a member of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Bizzy received a Grammy Award for the group's multiplatinum smash single “Crossroads.” He has also been honored by ASCAP, the American Music Awards and the Soul Train Awards.
