Grammy winning rapper Bizzy Bone, a founding member of the multi-platinum selling group Bone thugs-n-harmony, has authored his autobiography (as told to journalist Jose Martinez) titled Inside A Bizzy Mind – available in stores and online September 21, 2012.
Born Bryon Anthony McCane, Bizzy Bone begins his story by recalling the very moment he chose the body he would actually inhabit before his birth. Prior to the spotlights, awards, drugs, and groupies, which eventually found their way to the notorious rapper, he had to overcome an arduous childhood that included being kidnapped at the age of five along with his two older sisters. Living in cars and random motels, the children were finally rescued from their abductor after a year plus on the run when a neighbor saw a “missing” photo of young Bizzy on the TV show “America’s Most Wanted.”
“Bizzy’s story tells his inspirational journey and shows just how easy it is to fall, and how tough it is to pick yourself back up,” says “America’s Most Wanted” host John Walsh. “His chronicle reinforces that what you see on the surface isn’t always what lies beneath.”
After a successful reunion of Bone thugs-n-harmony in 2010, Bizzy, who has sold more than 50 million records worldwide with the band and as a solo artist, is eager for fans to hear his story in his very own words.
“I want this book to be about the spiritual war that has been a part of my life,” Bizzy explains.
