Bone Thug Reunion Derailed: Flesh Arrested With Gun, Drugs…
Just months after being released from prison and and reuniting with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, group member Flesh-N-Bone is back in prison for violating his probation.
Flesh, born Stanley Howse, was pulled over yesterday (April 2) in Canyon County, California, for driving with a defective brake light. A search of his vehicle turned up unnamed narcotics and a firearm, in direct violation of his probation.
Flesh was released from prison in July of 2008, after serving over nine years in prison, which derailed his career as a member of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, a rap group that has sold over 30 million records.
He appeared on the group’s critically acclaimed 1994 debut Creepin on Ah Come Up and the follow up full length, E. 1999 Eternal, released in 1995. Flesh released his debut solo album T.H.U.G.S.: Trues Humbly United Gatherin’ Souls in 1996. A year later, he was arrested when police raided his home and found a stolen gun and explosives.
In September of 1999, Flesh was finally sentenced to ten years for threatening a friend with an AK-47. Flesh was released from prison on July 13, 2008, and has since reunited with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.
“Words can’t even begin to explain the feeling that I had after being locked down for damn near a decade,” Flesh told AllHipHop.com shortly after his release. “The best way for me to describe it is to tell you that it was like a rebirth, a second chance at a new life, and a relief. It was over the top. I’ll never forget it. I thank God for giving me the immense blessing of the sense of complete freedom.”
Flesh-N-Bone is currently being held at the Santa Clarita jail and is not eligible for bond. “At this time all the facts have not been revealed publicly, however I can assure you 100% that Mr. Howse has not walked backwards,” a rep for Bone Thugs-N-Harmony told AllHipHop.com. “We live in a great American country where one is innocent until proven guilty.”
“What is going with the music nation, so many artists behind bars.”
