Eazy-E has been dubbed the “Godfather of Gangsta Rap” and is an originating member of a group called N***as With Attitude. So when he began trending on Twitter last night (September 1), it must’ve been because of some news regarding his accolades and/or estate right?
Nah. It was because people were — for some reason — comparing him to new-ish rapper G-Eazy for some reason. It put G-Eazy in a tough spot because he’s no gangsta rapper (he’ll tell you that) and anytime a newer rapper gets put up against a legend, the hating comes out.
“The only reason these idiots comparing G Eazy to Eazy E is cause they names are similar,” a Twitter user stated, likely naming the reason for this whole series of events. “Finding out Eazy-E is trending because people are comparing him to G Eazy may be the push I need to leave this horrible garbage site,” another said, egging on the slander.
Why we gotta do this? They’re totally different rappers with totally different music. G-Eazy’s only fault in all of this is his rap name, which actually makes sense since his real name is Gerald Earl Gillum.
Sheesh. Anyway, check out what the internets had to say in comparing the TOTALLY different rappers below.
