Layzie Bone Mourns Mother’s Death With His Bone Thugs Brethren By His Side


Layzie Bone is mourning the loss of his mother — affectionally known as “Ma P” — who passed away earlier this month on September 6.

On Tuesday (September 20), the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony OG shared an Instagram post that included a pair of photos from her funeral. In one of them, Krayzie Bone can be seen behind the casket, while in another, Layzie is posted up with Flesh-n-Bone.

He memorialized Ma P in the caption, writing: “My Mom was a beacon of light she touched so many of y’all. Family, Friends & Fans alike. If you knew Ma P she loved you UNCONDITIONALLY. she didn’t judge you like this world does she had a way of appreciating your natural qualities.

“My Momma was dope Af she gave y’all Bone. She allowed us to have Howse Parties and practice in her crib with no restrictions, she gave y’all BTNH. I thought I was the glue to this thing called Bone because I listened to people tell me that. Truth is Ma P which is MAP backwards was the glue that held all of it together.

Layzie Bone went on to call Ma P his “Queen” while revealing she was just 66 at the time of her death. He continued: “I appreciate her 66 years of Brick Howse thuggin cause she made her sons and a host of others relentless.

“In her name along with Jesus I smash on. Y’all better watch out. NO WEAPONS FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER.”

On the day Ma P died, Layzie posted several Instagram photos of her and talked about her vivacious personality. He also called September 6 the “saddest day” of his life in another one.

“Mama P and her 3,” he wrote in one of the captions. “If you knew this lady you know she was lit and didn’t take no shit. She was lit and living last night having fun moving around with baby bro this morning just fine and all of a sudden here we are.”

Layzie Bone is the latest in a long line of Hip Hop legends to lose their mothers in recent years. Daz Dillinger lost his mother in February 2021, while Snoop Dogg said goodbye to his mother Beverly Tate last October.

As the D-O-Double-G announced in an Instagram post at the time: “Thank u god for giving me an angel for a mother. TWMA [Til we meet again].”

DJ Premier also lost his mother in June 2020 almost two years to the day after losing his father. In an Instagram tribute, he wrote: “My Angel Just Got Her Wings…I’m So Glad I Made It Here To Say Goodbye…The Caretakers Love You So Much That They Just Did Your Nails and Feet Before Your Last Breath…That’s How A Queen Gets Handled…


HipHopDX sends its condolences to Layzie Bone and his family.

Meanwhile, Layzie Bone was recently praised by Lloyd Banks, and soon after the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony rapper responded in kind.

Speaking on the Rap Radar podcast, Banks explained the origin of his “Lazy Lloyd” nickname and tattoo, which he said was a tribute of sorts to the 47-year-old rapper. “To be honest with you, it came from Layzie Bone,” Banks said. “I never told anybody that, except for him.”

B.Dot followed up by asking Banks if he ever wanted to be in the legendary group, to which he replied: “Everybody did. Don’t sit here and act like… c’mon, man.”

Layzie Bone took to his Instagram Stories to react to the props from the former G-Unit soldier, sharing a still from the interview and writing: “What a honor.”
