Wiz Khalifa hails from Pittsburgh but it was all Midwest rap love when he decided to honor Bone Thugs-N-Harmony permanently by getting the entire five-man group tattooed on his thigh.
For the rapper who once sung, “Ink my whole body/I don’t give a mother****,” it was a no-brainer but the Grammy Award winning Cleveland quintet couldn’t contain their surprise at the gesture.
You know you’re a legend when you end up on Wiz Khalifa’s thigh — at least that’s how the guys from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are taking it after seeing Wiz’s new ink.
TMZ spoke to a bunch of the Bones after Wiz revealed the tattoo in an interview earlier this week. Bizzy Bone told us he thinks the tat is a great homage … especially considering it comes from another great hip-hop artist.
Wish Bone said he feels blessed that Wiz looks at them as “his idols in the hip-hop game,” –and Flesh said seeing the tat blew his mind.
Krayzie predictably described it as “crazy” … but Bizzy probably wrapped it up best, saying this is “proof they are legends in the hip-hop game.”
Wiz and the entire Bone Thugs have yet to collaborate yet but the ink-heavy rapper did feature on Game’s 2012 record, “Celebration,” which was a direct tribute to Bone’s signature hit, “First of Tha Month.” However, the two Midwest acts are separated by just a degree of separation, seeing that they’re both renown as some of the biggest marijuana users Hip-Hop has ever witnessed.
Blacc Hollywood, Wiz’s fifth studio album, is due out sometime this year.
