Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will reunite for one final show in their hometown of Cleveland, Ohio on July 23rd. The performance, which will be part of a celebration of the city's 215th birthday, will be the first time all five members of the hip-hop group will perform together in two years, mainly due to legal issues involving member Flesh-N-Bone.

"They ain't seen us, all five, since Flesh came out [of prison in 2008]," Bizzy Bone told MTV News. "We ain't been able to really put on a showcase for 'em, and this is a beautiful platform. It's gonna be thousands and thousands and thousands of people there, and it's Cleveland's birthday."

Earlier this year, Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone quit the band to pursue solo careers. Despite the drama, Layzie Bone told MTV that the members are all on good terms. "We break up to make up, but we proved to be a family that comes together throughout anything."

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
