Eazy-E’s son makes bold allegations about his father’s death

By | Published on Thursday 27 August 2015


Following the mini controversy around NWA biopic ‘Straight Outta Compton’s failure to portray the young Dr Dre assaulting some of his girlfriends – discussions of which forced the hip hop veteran to apologise for his younger self – chatter has now shifted to the portrayal in the movie of Eazy-E, the late NWA rapper who died in 1995 one month after being diagnosed with AIDS.

His daughter, EB Wright, has said she feels quite a lot of her father’s story is missing from the biopic, but that’s alright because “I’m producing a documentary that will show everything including his death”. Meanwhile the late rapper’s son, Yung Eazy, has been making some bold allegations about the circumstances that led to his father’s passing, basically accusing Suge Knight – the one-time boss of Death Row Records, where Dre headed amidst his early 1990s feud with Eazy-E – of having had a hand in it all.

He basically accuses Knight – who, of course, is currently facing murder charges relating to an incident that occurred nearby the filming of a trailer for the NWA film – of injecting his father with blood contaminated with the AIDS virus, referencing an old interview Knight gave in which he discussed such a thing.

Yung Eazy wrote in a recent Instagram post: “I’ve known my pops was killed. His death never added up 2 what ppl have always said, maybe they think we’re idiots blind to the truth idk … but 4 u new fans, youngsters & ppl who just don’t know much notice in #StraightOuttaCompton, Eazy did not get sick until after a studio incident with Suge and look how he acknowledged & admits on this interview with #JimmyKimmel injecting ppl instead of shooting them is a new thing that’s done. The truth is out there, it’s just blinded by the fact that Eric had a lot of sex #FreeYourMind #RipEazyE #EazyE #FuckSugeKnight”.
