Eric Wright (Eazy-E) was a high school dropout, drug-dealing Kelly Park Compton Crip gangster, and founding member of the hardcore rap group N.W.A. (No Whites Allowed). Wright was a gate-crashing pioneer in the gangster rap genre, and later achieved critical acclaim as a solo artist. Eric is no longer with us as he passed into Heaven on March 26, 1995 (Year of our Lord).
Mr. Wright was a staunch supporter of the Republican party. He donated thousands of dollars to assist their efforts to rescue the impoverished Black community. Recognizing Eric’s contributions, he was invited to a lunch benefiting the Republican Senatorial Inner Circle hosted by President George H. W. Bush.
Eric Wright was also an ardent supporter of law enforcement (the Los Angeles Police Department in particular). A smear campaign against Wright and members of his former N.W.A. posse was launched in the 80’s claiming that their anthem “Fuck tha Police” promoted violence against police officers. In early 1993, Eazy spoke out in support of Theodore Briseno, a LAPD police officer involved in the Rodney King beating.
Possessing a powerful libido, and eschewing the normal conventions of sexual morality, Wright spread his seed far and wide. He fathered seven beautiful children from six different women. Wright was a lover of his female groupies, but warned those of the male sex “to get the hell off.”
Wright was diagnosed with AIDS and his health deteriorated rapidly. He spoke openly about the God-directed plague sent to strike down sodomites, sexual debaucherers, and homosexuals. He warned his legions of fans about the dangers of unprotected anal sex with hood rats and intravenous drug users. In making his affliction public, Wright claimed his purpose was “to save their asses before it’s too late.”
In memory of Eazy-E, here is a sample of his lyrics from the song “Boyz in da Hood.” This song crystallizes the artistic essence of the legendary rap pioneer.
Left to get ma girl to rock that body
before I left, I hit the Bacardi
Went to her house to get her out of the pad
Dumb hoe said something that made me mad
She said something that I couldn’t believe
so I grabbed the stupid bitch by her nappy-ass weave
she started talking shit, wouldn’t you know
Reached back like a pimp, slapped the hoe
Eazy, I know you up there in heaven cruising your ’64 Impala to the liquor store to get another 40oz. of Eight-Ball. If you wreck that six-fo, I know you will throw it in the gutter and God will provide another. Lil-Eazy (The Prince of Compton) is carrying on your message of gangster hope and redemption. We got a West-Coaster (Hawaiian) in the White House too. You are missed dear friend – peace and love.
