Eazy-E's son released a powerful theory behind his father's death on Thursday, saying it was orchestrated by Suge Knight and not the result of HIV, as has been widely reported.
Aspiring rapper Yung Eazy believes Knight, who is currently incarcerated for the death of a man on the set of a Straight Outta Compton promo video, had his father injected with lethal drugs. “I’ve been 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," he began his lengthy rant.
"But 4 u new fans, youngsters & ppl who just don’t know much notice in#StraightOuttaCompton Eazy did not get sick until after the 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,” he said. “Oh n let’s not touch the topic on Ice Cube naming his album Lethal Injection.”
Members of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony echoed Yung Eazy's claims, telling VLADTV. “Even to this day, none of his kids, none of his baby mamas, mistresses, nobody has came up with HIV or nothing like that. So just rationally thinking, something had to go on,” Wi$h Bone said.
Whichever way he died, losing Eazy was a tragedy even more keenly felt these days, as the group's other members enjoy huge mainstream success and N.W.A. has a whole new generation of fans. R.I.P., Eazy, wherever you are.
