Cleveland go-getter Lil Bizzy pays homage to a Bone Thugz-N-Harmony classic in his video for "Bizzy's in the House." Equipped with a Cavaliers jersey and a nimble flow, he floats over a sample of the nostalgic 90's hit with an unbowed swagger — all confidence and high-energy.
"When I was listening to 'Thuggish Ruggish Bone' by my dad and his band, Tasha (Shatasha Williams), who sung the hook, thoroughly inspired me to put on for my city," Bizzy explained to The FADER. "I know the world has heard it, but it's a big song in Cleveland. It took me back to the 90s. That's what inspired me."
"As far as the video goes, I told my producer Rashad 'I wanna keep it simple, but creative.' We shot it in Cleveland. When you listen to it, you have to think about Cleveland."
