A rapper from Japan by the name of Ryo Muranaka reportedly sold everything he owned back home, in order to travel 6,000 miles to Cleveland's east side in hopes of meeting his idols, Bone-Thugs-n-Harmony. When arriving in Cleveland he reportedly wasn't exactly given the welcome he expected, two local activists, James Norton and Kwas Bibbs found him on the street, broke and robbed of his belongings.
In an interview with Fox8 Cleveland, the man said all he thought he would need to enter the US was his album, further explaining he did not have the means to return back home. “I thought I could get in the US in exchange for my CD,” Muranaka said. “No. No plan. One-way ticket.” His temporary permission to be in the U.S has expired, but the offices of U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown and Rep. Marcia Fudge is working on a solution. Watch it down below.


The man did, however, get to meet Krayzie Bone who put him in a hotel briefly and to HipHopDX he said, “My initial reaction was I didn’t think too much of it because we’ve had so many fans throughout our careers come from around the world to 99th St. Clair either looking for us or trying to take photos,” Krayzie said. “I thought it was just another fan, but when I heard this dude sold all of his belongings to come to Cleveland I was like, ‘WTH?’"
