It was tragic to lose Layzie Bone‘s mother earlier this month, on September 6, who was affectionately known as “Ma P.”
A pair of photos from her funeral were shared to Instagram on Tuesday by the Bone Thugs-n-Harmony OG. As you can see in one image, Krayzie Bone is behind the casket, and in another, Layzie is standing with Flesh-n-Bone.
In the caption, Layzie writes: “My Mom was a beacon of light she touched so many of y’all. Family, Friends & Fans alike. If you knew Ma P she loved you UNCONDITIONALLY. she didn’t judge you like this world does she had a way of appreciating your natural qualities.”
“My Momma was dope Af she gave y’all Bone. She allowed us to have Howse Parties and practice in her crib with no restrictions, she gave y’all BTNH. I thought I was the glue to this thing called Bone because I listened to people tell me that. Truth is Ma P which is MAP backwards was the glue that held all of it together.”
Ma P Was Layzie Bone’s “Queen”
The rapper described Ma P as his “Queen” while recalling that she was only 66 years old at the time of her passing. He goes on to say: “I appreciate her 66 years of Brick Howse thuggin cause she made her sons and a host of others relentless.”
“In her name along with Jesus I smash on. Y’all better watch out. NO WEAPONS FORMED AGAINST ME SHALL PROSPER.”
On the day of her passing, Layzie talked about Ma P’s vivacious personality and posted several photos of her on his Instagram. The “saddest day” of his life was also September 6, according to a letter he wrote.
He captioned: “Mama P and her 3, If you knew this lady you know she was lit and didn’t take no shit. She was lit and living last night having fun moving around with baby bro this morning just fine and all of a sudden here we are.”
