Bone-Thugs-n-Harmony were hit by a drone strike during their set at a festival in California on Sunday (September 25).
Rapper Flesh-n-Bone was struck in the head halfway through the trio's set at High Life in San Bernadino. He looked briefly stunned, but the trio quickly carried on with their set as planned.
It isn't clear who launched the drone, though it's thought a fan was responsible, as the missile didn't appear to be part of the trio's planned performance.
High Life was a two-day festival dedicated to hip-hop and medical marijuana, with Bone-Thugs-n-Harmony performing with Rick Ross and Wacka Flocka on Sunday, following sets by DMX, Nipsey Hussle and Berner the day before.
Bone-Thugs-n-Harmony are due to release their 12th album 'E. 1999 Legends' this year, a sequel to their most successful album 'E.1999 Eternal', which was released in 1995. The trio had UK Top 10 hits in 1996 with 'Tha Crossroads' and 'Days Of Our Livez', having reached No 1 in the US with 'Tha Crossroads'.
The drone strike isn't the first time a drone has caused chaos at a concert. In 2014, Trash Talk bassist Spencer Pollard threw beer cans at a drone buzzing the band in Detroit before he succesfully caused the drone to crash land onto the stage, while Enrique Iglesias had his hand slashed open by a drone in Mexico in 2015. Having called thier album 'Drones', Muse saw a drone crash into the crowd during a show at London's O2 Arena in April, though nobody was hurt.
