E.B. Wright, the daughter of Eazy-E, helps The Aftermath Presents remember her father on the 17th anniversary of his death. Eric "Eazy-E" Wright died from complications from AIDS on March 26, 1995.
In an exclusive video interview with The Aftermath, the pop-rock singer who starred in an episode of "My Super Sweet 16" discussed her Top 3 Eazy-E songs.
Many artists owe Eazy-E credit for paving the way for their careers. As the founder of Ruthless Records, Eazy-E should be considered the roots of a hip-hop family tree that would sprout branches for all of the members of N.W.A. and their artists.
N.W.A. member Dr. Dre launched the careers of Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, Tha Dogg Pound, Eminem, 50 Cent and The Game. Ice Cube created opportunities for his protégés YoYo and Mack 10.
Arguably, most surprisingly, Eazy-E was the first executive to sign the Black Eyed Peas. The group's pre-Fergie makeup was called The Atban Clan.
The founding members of N.W.A. have been in talks to produce a movie about their early days. Hopefully, it will happen soon.
