Speculation surrounding Eazy E’s death has resurfaced following the release of NWA biopic film Straight Outta Compton. The son of late NWA member Eazy E has claimed that his father was murdered by hip-hop mogul Suge Knight. Eazy E passed away in March 1995 from complications due to Aids, with his son, Eric Wright Jr (also known by his stage names Lil Eazy and Yung Eazy), claiming in a new interview that former Death Row Records boss Knight was responsible for injecting him with the disease.
- Suge Knight is currently on trial for murder , accused of an alleged hit-and-run attack following an incident at a car park of a Compton fast food restaurant in January.
- Wright alluded to an “incident” at a recording studio where Knight had been sent by NWA bandmate Dr Dre to seek Dre’s release from his recording contract.
- EB Wright criticised the picture and claimed it does not accurately portray matters regarding her father’s life.
