Los Angeles on 26 March 1995. When rap was still rough and honest gangsta rap. When its protagonists cruised with lowriders through their hood. One of them closed his eyes forever: Eazy-E. Born as Eric Lynn Wright. 31 years before. In Compton.
Eazy-E was one of the pioneers of gangsta rap. For many he is even the godfather of this genre. Unfortunately he passed away too early. AIDS was the reason. Even his seven kids he had from six women are still in conflict about how he was infected.
Eazy dealt with drugs during school. He told. He founded Ruthless Records with the revenue. NWA was the first baby of his label. His combo. Split up, disses and conciliation just before he died. And he would turn in his grave listening to today’s mumbling and Lambo driving „rappers“.
