Bone Thugs-N-Harmony will soon be honored in their city of Cleveland with their very own street.

The famed group will see the intersection of East 99th Street and St. Clair Avenue be renamed to “Bone Thugs-N-Harmony Way” later this summer, according to a report from News 5 Cleveland on Tuesday (June 27). The accolade arrives just over a year after fans created a petition for the signage.

“There’s nothing here that pays homage to that or to the group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony,” the petition read.

The ceremony will go down on August 11 from noon to 2 p.m.

Earlier this month, Cormega took some time out on Instagram to salute Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, dubbing them “one of the most unique rap groups ever.”

“Before Eazy E left this world he gave us a reminder of his savvy as a music executive. Bone Thugs N Harmony was and is one of the most unique rap groups ever,” Cormega captioned a photograph of the group minus Flesh, who was likely incarcerated at the time it was taken. “They harmonize like a choir while simultaneously lyrically staying aligned with rap group precision and verbally switching tempos perfectly.”

Cormega then turned his attention to two of the group’s biggest songs, “1st of tha Month” and “Tha Crossroads,” explaining how the emotion in the latter has never been topped by anyone to this day.

“Their song ‘1st Of The Month’ was a catchy hit that caught my attention and their music afterwards kept my attention,” he wrote. “I’ve never heard a song about death sound sonically beautiful until I heard ‘Cross Roads.’ The video is very thought provoking and brings an added element to the song. A melodramatic emotional experience never surpassed to this very day.

“They became superstars selling over 14 million records to date making them one of the top rap groups of all time if we’re being unbiasedly honest.”

Elsewhere in the post, Cormega pointed out how Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are the only group to collaborate with both 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G. prior to their deaths, before declaring the Cleveland group “future Hall Of Famers.”

“They are also the only group that did a song with Tupac ‘Thug Luv,’ and Biggie ‘Notorious Thugs.’ Each song is amazing in its own way. ‘Thug Luv’ edgy and energetic, ‘Notorious Thugs’ melodic and unexpected at the time. Bone Thugs N Harmony are future Hall Of Famers who deserve acknowledgment for their contribution to the genre. Salute #bonesthugsnharmony
