Eazy-E's Son Lil Eazy Responds To Rock The Bells Virtual Performance

Exclusive: Eric Wright, Jr. shares his initial reaction to seeing his late father's virtual performance with Bone thugs-n-harmony during Rock The Bells 2013.

Following the highly anticipated debut of Eazy-E’s virtual performance during Rock The Bells 2013, the Hip Hop legend’s oldest son, Eric Wright, Jr. (also known as Lil Eazy), shared his initial reaction with HipHopDX. “It was a beautiful performance, a beautiful scene of work that we put together,” said Lil Eazy in an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. “I’m finally glad that my father [was honored] on stage and stood in the forefront.”

Eazy-E’s virtual performance was part of Bone thugs-n-harmony’s set during the first night of the Los Angeles, California-leg of Rock The Bells 2013. After running through hits “East 1999,” “Thuggish Ruggish Bone,” “1st Of Tha Month,” among others, Bone introduced N.W.A’s DJ Yella, who subsequently introduced the virtual Eazy-E. 

The virtual Eazy-E performed his verse from “Straight Outta Compton,” along with “Boyz-N-The Hood” before closing with his verse from Bone thugs-n-harmony’s “Foe Tha Love of $.”

When asked by HipHopDX whether he was nervous about seeing his father’s likeness on stage, Eric Wright, Jr. said, “I actually was, man.”

“I was nervous to see what it is,” he continued. “I definitely was in the beginning. I’m glad the crowd loved it. [It was a] good reaction. Individuals said they wanted to walk up there and ask him questions. I’m beautiful for the response. It’s a blessing.”

Eric Wright, Jr. also announced that he and younger brother Baby Eazy plan to tour with DJ Yella.

“We’re getting on the road,” he said. “We’re gonna continue with this Compton thang.”

Guerrilla Union made headlines last Spring when the company revealed that the 2013 Rock The Bells tour would include virtual performances of late icons Eazy-E and Ol’ Dirty Bastard (May 15). In July, Guerrilla Union CEO, Chang Weisberg described the difference between a “virtual performance” and a “hologram” (July 31). 

"The technical definition of a hologram requires glass and refractions and projections of a sort that I can’t describe in laymen’s terms," Weisberg said during an exclusive interview with HipHopDX. "A true hologram is not what we’re doing. What we’re going to be creating with these virtual performances is what looks like a hologram...I will tell you that we are leveraging at the highest level, very creative and artistic 3-D recreations, that we are leveraging video and motion capture and projection and multi-media, to project hologram-like performances on stage. When I hear hologram, I’m comfortable with it so people can understand. I think I can call it a hologram and I don’t think anyone can disqualify me from that. If they went be very technical terms, I’ve said it’s a virtual performance, a virtual performance that will look and feel like a hologram but will be so much more because of the circumstances of what’s happening at the show, who was involved and the moment." 

Rock The Bells 2013 continues today (September 8) in Los Angeles, California. For more information on Rock The Bells, visit rockthebells.net.

    No Hona Costello? He just dropped his song and got 5k plays already! His song high is over 90k yet these blogs fail to post him. He got over 250k plays total. Makes no sense. He's the real representation of an indie artists.

    While we're at it, how about we just create completely NEW ARTISTS, have a TEAM OF GHOST WRITERS MAKE THEIR ALBUMS, and then program the whole performance. Sometimes, you have to be happy with the past just being the past. Look forward to all of the DOPE NEW artists coming out.
  • SeeTheFuture
    So Holograms are going to get shows now? Does anyone else see what this means? Isn't this one step closer to "Simone" -the Al Pacino movie? There are a slew of artists they could bring back...Shiiittt...Who doesn't want to see Marvin, Gil-Scott, Whitney Houston, The Beatles, Freddy Mercury, Sam Cooke etc.... Living artists can't compete with that.
