Mo Thugs Family is an All-Star project also known as Mo Thug, Mo Thugs, Mo Thug Records, Mo Thug Soldiers and Mighty Mo. Their logo, a pyramid with a closed fist above it, is symbolic of their achievements; The pyramid stands for longevity, and the fist stands for victory. The name "Mo Thugs", by definition, is slang for "More Thugs", as Layzie Bone can be quoted in his lyrics "roll with the Bone, and Mo' Thug gonna follow". Many musicians who were close to the members of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony were signed to the group. In 1999 their record label Relativity Records was bought by Loud Records at the time of sale.

Their first album entitled Family Scriptures was released in 1996 which spawned two hit singles: "Thug Devotion" and "Take Your Time". The album went Platinum. 1997 saw the release of two solo projects, Poetic Hustla'Z "Trialz & Tribulationz", and II Tru's "A New Breed of Female". Neither album met expectation, selling around 75,000 & 67,925 respectively. On August 31, 1997 marked the untimely death of Paul O'Neill, a.k.a. Tombstone of the Graveyard Shift. Paul O'Neill was gunned down, on the front lawn of his fiance's home in Cleveland, OH. The group had an anticipated release date of their debut album Still Waters, on Halloween 1997, but due to the death of Tombstone, and fellow Graveyard Shift member leaving the group afterwards, leaving Sin as the sole member of the group, the album never surfaced, until years later, being sold on the internet.

Their second album, Chapter II: Family Reunion, which was released in 1998 spawned two singles: "All Good", and their most successful hit to date, "Ghetto Cowboy", reaching U.S. #15. This album also went Platinum. It also introduced several new members, such as MT5, Potion, DJ Ice, Scant, Cat Cody, 4-U-2 Know, Thug Queen, and most notably, Felecia, Layzie Bone's wife. This album also saw the departure of Tre'.

After the imprisonment of Flesh-n-Bone, and the departure of Krayzie Bone & Wish Bone, Layzie Bone took over as the head CEO of Mo Thugs Records, and the group leader of the Mo Thugs Family. On their third go-around, Mo Thugs III: The Mothership, released in 2000 on the independent powerhouse label Koch Records, revealed the departure of several members including MT5, Souljah Boy, Graveyard Shift, Poetic Hustlaz, II Tru, Cat Cody, 4-U-2-Know, and mainly, Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone. It also introduced some new faces, including E-Mortal Thugs, Seldom Seen, Despiridos, and T'N'Tee. It spawned two hit singles, "Did He Really Wanna", and "This Ain't Livin'". The album sold 250,000 copies.

In 2003, Mo Thugs went on to release a fourth album entitled, The Movement, which spawned the hits: "All Life Long", "The Movement", "Smokin' On Information" (which featured Snoop Dogg), and "Can U Dig It". As of 2006, this album has sold 330,000 copies without little to no promotion. Several other independent projects have been released, including solo albums by Layzie Bone (How A Thug Was Born), Krayzie Bone (ThugLine Boss), Big Caz (Undisputed & Thuggin Without a Cause), along with several underground mixtapes, DVDs, & internet albums such as Thin C (Cut The Check), Royal Family (Family Ties), 100% Pure Thug Tour, and not to mention numerous mixtapes put out by various Mo Thugs members, and affiliates (namely Thin C., Big Sloan, and Flames of the Henchmen) . All Mo Thugs albums will now be distributed through BTNH Worldwide & Warner Bros.

The recent release of Bone member Flesh-n-Bone from prison promises new hope for future Mo Thugs projects. The current label roster now includes a fresh new wave of nationwide underground talent, artists that have proved their worth to bring the spotlight back to the Mo Thugs movement. Future releases include the Layzie Bone/Young Gigg mixtape (American Thug), Big Sloan (Khakis & Chucks), and Bino (Show & Prove), along with records from Flesh-n-Bone, Thin C, and L.D.T.

A new volume in the Mo Thugs installments, "Mo Thug Brothers", is in the works for a 2009 release, following closely behind the Bone Thugs reunion album, "Uni5", the first album in almost a decade to feature all 5 original Bone members.
