Krayzie Bone says that Suge Knight once planned an attack against Bone Thugs-n-Harmony at the 1995 Source Awards.
According to Krayzie, Suge felt disrespected by the group’s “1st of Tha Month” music video because they were wearing Death Row’s trademark beanies.
“When we was at the Source Awards, they told me they was gonna pay somebody $10,000 to run up there and sling on [us] with a cane. There was a lot of beef going on back then, it was intense. I remember that Source Awards being very intense. It was wild,” he said on The Art of Dialogue.
He added: “They told us that [Suge] had called a meeting one time and told everybody to look at our videos. One of us was wearing a Georgetown Bulldogs beanie, but we had a New York Yankees — we had different [hats]. The director told us, ‘Put the beanies on because the special effects gonna make y’all afros look like fire.’ But I guess this n-gga didn’t know what he was doing and he had the little patch on that hat on fire, and they took it as a form of disrespect.”
