Lonzo Williams was around during a lot of Dr. Dre’s earliest work and in the midst of the release of N.W.A.’s biopic, Straight Outta Compton, everyone around the camp has fielded questions about the group’s history.
The World Class Wrecking Crew founder was recently asked by Vlad TV about the beef that broke out between Eazy E and Dr. Dre after Dre left N.W.A. Williams says he was confused as to why they began to diss each other after building the empire they had.
“It just kind of confused me ’cause they was supposed to be so tight and it just amazes me how guys supposed to be so tight and they go after each other’s jugular veins when things don’t go right.” He said when asked about Dr. Dre’s portrayal in Eazy E’s song “Real Muthaphuckkin G’s.” “I met Dre with Eazy. I hooked Eazy up with Jerry Heller, Dre to get them in the studio. All the Eazy E demos were done in this room right here and if it wasn’t for Dre, Eazy wouldn’t have ever known me. Just for them to go at it like that, it seemed kind of silly to me.”
Lonzo Williams, who admits he was paid for the rights to use an album insert of Dr. Dre in white jumpsuit, also questioned the legitimacy of N.W.A.’s in-fighting at the time and says that record sales, more than hate, drove the creation of the diss songs.
“What I also realized were diss records at that time were a very good way to sell records,” he said. “You divided the fan base and people bought records so if it was legitimate, eh. I always thought it was just another way to sell records.”
Finally during the interview, Williams denied claims that Dr. Dre is gay and says that he and Dre had sex with numerous women simultaneously at one point.
