Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
The crossroads got a little more crowded last month when Bone Thugs-N-Harmony collaborator Jewell died, just months after being hospitalized and released after battling fluid in her heart, lungs and legs.

No telling if Bizzy, Layzie and Krayzie Bone will pay tribute with her when the Cleveland harmony-making hip-hop outfit lands in Ybor City for a Friday night show at The Ritz, but do expect the group to dip heavy into its lightning quick lyricism, delivered in a melodic fashion, all pre-dating the heavily-sung rap music of today.
Get there early, too, to see Tampa rapper Sam E Hues drop the sauwce on fans in the opening slot.
