Old school hip hop veterans Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are due to tour Australia in April, but it seems they have ulterior motives in heading to the southern hemisphere, with the crew on the look-out for Australian talent to sign up to their own label, The Life Entertainment.
The group will be conducting all-age auditions during their visit to Sydney for their show at Oxford Arts Factory on April 24.
Krayzie Bone, senior member of the group and brainchild of The Life Entertainment, said, “I’ve always thought it best to think outside of the box when it comes to box when it comes to music and searching for new artists. This is the reason that myself and my partner Wish Bone are moving forward with this worldwide talent search.
“Apart from America, Australia was first on our list because after hearing some of artists last time we were there, Wish and myself were thoroughly impressed with the level of talent out there… We are confident we will find artists in Australia that will prove to be potential stars that we can work with, develop and promote on a worldwide level.”
