Layzie Bone, also known as L-Burna, is the stage name for Steven Howse, an American rapper born on September 23, 1975, in Cleveland, Ohio. He is most known for being a member of the rap group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, which became very popular in the mid-90's. As a kid, Howse grew up on the streets of Cleveland. He was caught selling drugs and was given the option of either being sent to jail or to Texas with his uncle and aunt. He went to Texas and met "Wish Bone" during his trip. When he returned to Cleveland, he told Krayzie Bone, Bizzy Bone, and Wish Bone about the idea (the bone theme). They later formed B.O.N.E.
