For more than two decades, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony has made a name for itself and redefined the sound of hip-hop with its melodic bars and smooth flow. As members Krayzie Bone, Wish Bone and Flesh-N-Bone told HuffPost Live on Thursday, much of their lyrical content has been influenced by the group’s religious beliefs. ;

The Cleveland group, which is currently touring, said its connection to God developed at a young age.

“We definitely believe there is a God. We was raised like that. We’ve always been into that, [and] our parents were. They taught us,” Krayzie Bone said.

But the group’s faith never prevented them from tackling tough issues in their raps, Krayzie Bone clarified.

“We always believed that there was a God and that always had a major effect on the things we write. Yeah, we talk about some things like the streets and everything, but we were always guided by that, knowing it’s only to make [it] better, it’s only to do better,” he told Julee Wilson. “Although we talk about those things that we did on the streets, we always tell both sides — the good side and the bad side. We don’t glorify it, we just let people know what we had to do.” ;
