"We all started in like junior high, like seventh grade, I had a class with both of these dudes right here, that's how it all started,” Krayzie Bone recalled pointing to Flesh-n-Bone and Layzie Bone. Noting how he had English class with one and home-ec with another. After realizing all three of them had an affinity for beatboxing and rapping he got a “bright idea.”
