Legendary hip-hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony has a lot going for them these days. Apart from reveling in their status as hip-hop royalty, the group has announced that they’re launching their very own internet-only television channel as well as a record label and community development plan for their hometown of Cleveland, OH.

According to Cleveland.com, the group announced an Oct. 16 show at the Masonic Auditorium. This show will also be broadcast to internet fans on ETV.com, part of FilmOn Networks‘ lineup of services. ETV.com gives creators the ability to create their own pay-per-view events for their fans. Creators can also collect tips and donations from their viewers. In this case, the ticket price to see the pay-per-view performance is $5.95, and a portion of the proceeds from the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony performance will go towards the city’s non-profit organization Roots of American Music.

So what can be expected at the live performance? Fans will be thrilled to see all five original members of the group, backed by a live orchestra. The performance is also the beginning for the group’s FilmOn internet channel BoneThugsTV.com. The channel will air exclusive footage from their concerts as well as behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. Perhaps one of the concerts shown on the channel will include the group’s Nov. 15 performance at the Cleveland Angora. The performance has been called the group’s final world tour with all five members.

“I’m excited to work with [Ladderhouse International] in bringing Bone Thugs-N-Harmony to our new ETV.com platform,” said FilmOn Networks’ Alki David. “The platform was designed to put power and monetization abilities in the hands of artists, athletes and celebrities who can create one of a kind events and raise money for their charities with ease.”

More information about the community development plan and new record label and production company will be coming soon.
