A female rap fan says she was permanently scarred by a Bone Thugs-n-Harmony performance … when one of the rappers flung his microphone right into her face … this according to a new lawsuit obtained by TMZ.
The woman says she was hanging out near the front of the stage at a Bone Thugs show in Missouri in 2010 … when Layzie Bone began to swing the mic in the air.
According to the suit … Layzie “lost control of the microphone, launching it into the crowd” and striking the woman right in the head.
The woman claims she suffered bruises, contusions and severe lacerations to her head which left permanent scars. She also claims she became sick, sore, lame and disordered as a result.
Now, the woman is demanding Layzie and the rap group fork over some serious cash to make things right — more than $25,000.
Calls to Bone Thugs have not been returned.

Marlow “Bow Wow” Jones, (Not the little one) was sentenced to 12 years in the pen on November 24th for his part in the robbery of Bone Thugs-N- Harmony member Bizzy Bone. Marlow as well as 3 other men all pleaded guilty to beating and robbing the member of the well known rap group.
The beating took place in Universal City, California in a hotel early this year in January. The group of burglars came into Bizzy’s hotel room where they admitted to beating and chocking him while stealing his jewelry.
Contradicting to his actions, when Jones was arrested he was actually employed in a city sponsored anti-gang program known as “Unity One.” According to the L.A. Times,
“Jones, 31, pleaded guilty to one count of burglary, in addition to admitting that his actions were done to benefit a street gang.”
Jones’ crew was not let off the hook however and received lengthy sentences as well. Ricky Pearson was sentenced to 19 years, Vanquan Knott was sentenced to 11 years, and Markiece Goss was sentenced to six years in prison.
This is not the only reason Bizzy has appeared in court lately, Bizzy was recently sentenced to court ordered drug rehab, which will prevent him from promoting a lot of Bone Thugs’ new album Uni 5: The World’s Enemy, dropping December 22nd.
I guess they told Bizzy they didn’t want to “See Him Shine.”

Popular Hip-Hop group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, producer Swizz Beatz and R&B singer Akon have been hit with a lawsuit by a Texas-based music publisher.
Songster, which is located in Fort Worth, Texas, filed the lawsuit in the Central District of California yesterday (July 14).
The company claims the Bone Thug’s lead single from their 2007 album Strength and Loyalty illegally lifted portions of the 1978 track “When The Day Will Come (aka KRSNA)” by group Rasa.
The lawsuit lists a variety of Hip-Hop artists who have sampled chanting from the song, which has been incorporated into tracks by KRS-One (“Beef”), Black Rob (“Can I Live”), Common (“Take It Easy”) and others with permission.
Songster also names Akon, the track’s producer, Swizz Beatz, owner of the Full Surface record label, Interscope Records, Sony A.T.V. Publishing and Universal Music Group in the lawsuit.
Songster claims they notified each defendant in writing about the infringement, but the album and song was still sold as physical CD’s and digital downloads.
Songster seeks to take the case to trial, to determine the amount of damages the original producer and songwriter of “Everything You See is Me” are entitled to.
They are also demanding all profits earned from the sales of Bone Thug’s track, in addition to removing any CD’s containing the track from being sold through physical and digital stores.
