Jerry Heller: I Should Have Let Eazy-E Kill Suge Knight

The former N.W.A manager dispenses more wild theories.

Published October 11, 2015

The history of gangster rap would have turned out very differently if Jerry Heller had not stopped Eazy-E from killing Suge Knight, or so the former N.W.A manager tells Smashd

After previously revealing that he believes Knight "put the hit" on Tupac and was responsible for injecting Eazy with HIV, Heller expanded on his feelings about the controversial rap legend, who is currently in jail on hit-and-run charges.

The truth was, I should have let Eazy kill [Knight]. It’s not like anyone would have investigated it. Who do they put him in jail with? The guy that killed Tupac? Or the guy that killed Biggie? Or the guy that killed Eazy? Do they share a cell, or what? I should have let him do it. And probably, Eazy would still be around, and Ruthless would still be making great records.


Heller also adds more details to his theory of how Eazy contracted the deadly virus that ultimately took his life in 1995. "At the end [in 1995], he did go for acupuncture. One of his assistants, she took him to a Korean acupuncturist in Burbank — I don’t know for sure, but I think so," Heller rambles. "My doctor in Beverly Hills — I had gone to him for 30 years — he examined Eazy, and Eazy was not HIV positive in July of 1994. So, that sort of makes sense to me. It doesn’t always show up when the doctor does the test. I’ve heard of that happening."

He continues, "But I know Suge had something to do with it, just like he had to do with Tupac, and just like he did with Biggie. Because that’s the kind of snake he is. One of us injected him with AIDS? Let me ask you a question: Where do you go to buy AIDS? CVS? I suppose Suge could pay some guy or girl, $10,000 for some of their blood. I suppose. I don’t know. Seems far-fetched to me."

Heller isn't the only one who wants to set the record straight about Eazy's legacy. His family has had quite a lot to say about his life, death and the way he was portrayed in the smash biopic Straight OUtta Compton.
