Eazy-E "Ruthless Memories" Documentary Trailer Releases

UPDATE #2: A six-minute trailer releases, with excerpts talking about Suge Knight's threats on Eazy E and several people close to the mogul expressing skepticism over his cause of death.

Ruthless Records founder and rapper Eric "Eazy-E" Wright is the subject of a new documentary in production, Ruthless Memories. Production company Ruthless Propaganda is making the film, using new interviews from Eazy's N.W.A. band-mate MC Ren, along with his longtime business partner, Jerry Heller.

Directed by Sergio Hernandez, Ruthless Memories also includes interviews with several Ruthless Records artists from later years, including B.G. Knocc Out, who appeared on one of Eazy-E's last hits, "Real Muthaphuckkin' G's." The film is planned for DVD release in Fall 2012.

Eazy-E died from complications of the AIDS virus in March, 1995. Ruthless Records is still in operation, run by Eazy's widow Tomica Woods-Wright.

(May 3, 2012)

UPDATE: Sergio Hernandez, director of Ruthless Memories, announced to HipHopDX that the film will release on December 21. Pre-order purchasers before December 7th will receive their name in the film credits. For more information, visit RuthlessMemories.com.

    Don't blame some kids talking shit on this! You cant write rap history without a chapter on NWA and Easy E. Don't blame you though cos you were wearing diapers and shitting in your pants (probably wasnt even born) back then when we were living in the moment this dude and his group hit the speakers!!! You had to live in those times to have the least appreciation for what dude did. getting busted by the lapd for being black and getting shat on by the system for being from the hood. These dudes gave the oppressed a voice. God bless Easy and NWA

  • Real22

    Eazy was real, he was really about that life and fools on here have the nerve to disrespect a true legend

    • studioGeezy

      Eazy E SUED SUGE KNIGHT. He and his daddy Heller went CRYING TO JDL for god sakes. Had dinner with the president. ha ha yeah he real though. Little midget.

    Eazy was real he really about life and fools on here have the nerve to disrespect

  • facts

    to be honest all this shit being said is irrelevant especially regarding the beef because the man is dead but the fact remains that eazy was real and lived that life while some of his bandmates who went on to the most success were not. they need to try and get interviews from people like sin loc his cousin and blue rag whowere both on bangin on wax who knew him before all this industry shit

  • Funny

    Its funny to bee these people defend a man who they never met and praise him like he was a divine being. Eazy-E never cared about you let alone his own homies in the NWA days. He stole money, slept with many women (possibly men) and died of AIDS. His death was a satanic sacrifice. Hopsin found out he was next so he left to save his life before selling out by signing rappers that contradict his intentions of the straight edge life. Sorry but Hip-Hop is fake like the rest of the music industry and it's time to take our lives serious before society gets worse.

    • LL

      Your stupid as fuck, Eazy E was considered a leader in Compton, He would give out presents at christmas and turkeys on thanksgiving, wanted little kids to become the next president instead of being rappers, and had compton appear on the map.

    Nigga do your fuckin homework? Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg destroyed Eazy E career? How is that when the album he dissed them on went double platinum? Ruthless records moved on to bigger and better without NWA or Dr. Dre, but got cut short when Eazy died. Bone Thugs and Harmony came out and was out sellin every death row artist at the time. And for the record, Dre Day went hard but Real Muthafuckin Gs went harder and proved to be true. Look at Snoop Dogg now and all da shit dat about him bein a bitch dat has surfaced over the years. Dr. Dre was gettin punked from jump street at Death Row, 2pac was even callin him out for bein a faggot (sameshit EazyEcp called him out for) so

    How did Eazy E get aids? Where did he catch it? We wanna know. Its a crime to keep this secrete. Did Eazy E do something he wasn't suppose to do? Was Eazy creepin around? Why hasn't anyone step up and say something. Did the woman make a deal with eazy to keep this out of public eye? WTH happen. Will I get the answer?

    "Eazy made Dre famous; without him, there'd be no Snoop, no Dogg Pound, no Eminem, no 50" Last time I checked NWA was a group effort, not just Eazy. He wasn't even the most lyrical of the group. Seriously, all the rappers you named who came after him had their own style and identities. If Eazy were still alive do you believe he'd still be in the industry? I doubt it.

      Hey quote guy, Eazy forth the money that launched Dre's and Cube's career Please know wtf you talk about before quoting, idiot

  • EAZY-E WAS THE GREATEST NIGGA THAT EVER LIVED

    Eazy made Dre famous; without him, there'd be no Snoop, no Dogg Pound, no Eminem, no 50. He made Cube famous; without him, there'd be no Mack 10. He made Bone Thugs-n-Harmony famous. He put on Will.i.am; without him, there'd be no Black Eyed Peas. So don't ever front on the E.

    Eazy was the real deal you weak ass niggas.He was a hood ass nigga.How the fuck you think he started and financed n.w.a.? Do ya homework.I wish this dude was stil around.That 187um ep is classic as sick as hell.

    "or Snoop Doggy Dogg from a fantasy hood called Eastside Long Beach" Oh ok, and Snoop's murder charge must have been fantasy too.

    • Lil Loc

      ^ And don't forget the fact that Snoop himself didn't kill the guy; it was his bodyguard.

      Y'all don't believe it?? Just ride through Long Beach, nigga. Tell me if you find any hood out there, ok??? Plus that murder shit happened in fucking L.A.

  • Anonymous

    If Eazy was so great why did everyone turn on him after Dre and Snoop lyrically destroyed him? If anything he was made to look like a busta after that, something he never recovered from. NWA had turned on Cube, but that didn't stop Cube. Notice it made him a better artist. Dre being a super producer had nothing to do with Eazy. If anything, all of them were being held back by Eazy. He was greedy and only out for himself.

  • Erick Sermon

    "In no way did Dr. Dre From World Class Wreckin Cru fame or Snoop Doggy Dogg from a fantasy hood called "Eastside Long Beach" destroyed Eazy-E's career" I wish you and everybody you love get lynched, nigga. Seriously. How the fuck you say some stupid shit like that? Were you alive in 93?!?! Cuz Dre basically DESTROYED Eazy with that Dre Day shit, and the things he said proved to be true, since Eazy got so butthurt he had to respond with that wack ass Real Compton G's shit. So fuck you and your life.

      If he wanted to live a normal life he could have just kept releasing records and then let everyone get sick of his shitty raps. Eventually he would have become a nobody and could do whatever he wanted.

    whoever wrote NWA was flash in the pan needs to stop listening to hip hop altogether...every real hip hop fan NWA was a supergroup who placed G music firmly on the worldwide map and Eazy e was a pioneer...even when they in fought and squabbled...they were still classic and Eazy was still the most authentic G within the click...so he'll never be over...as long as snoop kendrick game south central cartel dj quik and all the rest of them west coast acts rap...Eazy e's legacy lives on, so stop speaking sucker shit on a dead man and give it up to a LEGEND for real

    "one of the pioneers of gangsta rap....he was a legend" NWA was a flash in the pan. This so called legend first got ethered by Cube, then totally embarassed again by Dre. Career over. Life over. Your over.

    • Anonymous

      flash in the pan with two of the greatest hiphop albums of all time what are you talkin bout. It was him who helped dre cause dre was not nwa at first he was with world class wreckin crew and was really stressed and shit back then. He was the one who get dre to make this music.

    • Anonymous

      He still managed to put money together to help create Ruthless Records which housed NWA, which created "Gangsta Rap." Therefore I feel he was a major contributor to Hip-Hop (and not a "flash in the pan"), especially with the help of Ice Cube/Ren's writing skills and Dre/Yella's production skills.

    Eazy-E vs Tupac in a rap battle? Who would win?

  • Khalid Muhammad 4 Life

    Without Eazy, there would be no Dr. Dre. No Dre, no Eminem. So all you crackers talking shit about the E shut the fuck and sit the fuck down.

    • Anonymous

      And if there is no EM, there is no 50 Cent. If there is no 50 Cent, there is no beef with Ja Rule. If there is no beef between 50 Cent and Ja Rule, there are no hip hop websites. If there are mo hip hop websites, Barack Obama does not get elected. If Barack Obama does not get elected, Rick Santorum becomes president and declares that black people do not exist. If black people never existed, then hip hop never existed.

    I wouldn't say he was a legend. Alot of his old stuff is hard to listen too.

  • Hi Man2.0

    Yes Eazy is a legend he done a lot of things.... but isn't he the one who have destroyed NWA? Didin't he stabbed his homies in their back ? By the way Ice Cube almost wrote all his lyrics with Mc Ren but mostly Ice Cube

    • Desperado

      the thing is eazy found out jerry was stealing from him too. i bet eazy never stole from NWA it was jerry the whole time. that dude single handly broke up NWA....sad shit cuz he killed eazy for firing him

    • Hi Man2.0

      Eazy was accused of stealing money with Jerry, that's why Cube & then Dre left NWA, for the record NWA were the first to diss Ice Cube

      how did he destroy NWA? Ice Cube left first dumbass and dissed them all. then DRE left. EAZY never left.

    finally can't wait for the real N.W.A movie these guys started this gangsta shit eazy stood up to the Feds with Fuck Tha Police they started Gangsta Rap pioneered it descovered lots of rappers

  • wballz187

    dam Eazy-E is completely underrated and it makes me madd. like if it wasn't no eazy-e there would be no Dr. Dre which means their wouldnt be no Eminem, Snoop, 50, Game etc. and it means their wouldnt be no bone thugs, westside connection and most importantly N.W.A so eazy should start getting more credit

  • FUCK THAT BLACK NIGGA REN

    Fuckkk it. Eazy-E is a bitch. Hope he's burning in hell right now.

    how can you misspell controversial like that, dumb fucks, good trailer though

      to be honest, i did not spell check that shit.lol. glad u feeling the trailer. Fixing the type errors as we speak. I was spelling the words for those on tha streetz.lol. didnt know i would have some educated foo's interested.

    Real muthaphukkin Gs was/is one of the best diss tracks ever. if not for eazy, there wouldnt be a Dre OR Snoop.

  • Jacc

    In no way did Dr. Dre From World Class Wreckin Cru fame or Snoop Doggy Dogg from a fantasy hood called "Eastside Long Beach" destroyed Eazy-E's career. They might had insulted him on some tracks, but it proved to be irrelevant, since Eazy still managed to sell copies. And even if they destroyed his career, it wouldn't even matter, because Eazy would still be making money off Dre

  • Realazzdaekum

    Dre & Snoop destroyed Eazy's career? haha he fuckin' murdered them with his diss tracks he let the world know who the studio gangsta's were & who was the real G "Givin' Up The Real" For those talkin about Bones not being in the Doc that's why it isn't complete they're trying to get Bone in there Alf Capone: there probably isnt much this doc can tell us about eazy that isnt already out there Trust me,from some of the stories that's been given to us by people close to Eazy there will be some things you never knew about Eazy.I always knew there was more to Eazy than the same old bullshit they've been putting out.

    Maybe they'll interview Dre and Snoop so they can recall totally destroying Eazy's career and reputation.

      bitch please don't make me laugh. Dre did some bomb ass shit on Fuck Wit Dre Day, but after Real Muthaphuckin G's it was over. Period. Eazy was the winner, because he exposed to the world the truth behind Dr. Dre's tough gangsta image.
