BTNH2

This film documents Bone Thugs-n-Harmony reuniting for the first time in over a decade. It tracks major events, beginning with Flesh-n-Bone’s release from prison while being met by the four other members of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony. As we see the group on tour and in the studio, the film captures the essence of the group as a family while they become reacquainted with each other’s grown-up personalities. As they set about this new project, we follow the group as they plan a course of action to get a distribution deal with all five members on a major music label. During this process, as Flesh-n-Bone tries to readjust to society, he runs in to turmoil causing him to serve a short stint in LA County Jail for violation of parole. Along with Flesh-n-Bone, the group has also recently rejoined with Bizzy Bone, causing them to struggle with his alcohol problems and the impact it has on the group’s progress. Eventually, the group has an intervention, and although it doesn’t solve much, Bizzy Bone does manage to stay sober for the recoding of the UNI-5 Album. The film ultimately shows that Bone Thugs-n-Harmony are more than just a group, are a true family.

We all know that Wu-Tang is forever, and apparently Nike does too. That is why the sportswear giant tapped the legendary super group for inspiration on their latest Air Foamposite One. Although Nike is calling these the “Optic Yellow” foams, heads have fittingly dubbed these the “Wu-Tangs.” Whatever you choose to call them, the kicks feature a fluorescent yellow shell and black detailing throughout. That’s it. Oh, what we wouldn’t do to see a “W” on these joints in place of Penny Hardaway’s one-cent logo…

Nonetheless, the Nike Air Foamposite One “Optic Yellow” is slated to release on June 24 from Nike retailers and the brand’s online shop.
