With the recent release of the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton, it appears that a rumor about Suge Knight allegedly orchestrating Eazy-E’s death is again gaining fuel.
Former N.W.A manager Jerry Heller, who previously stated that Eazy-E should have killed Suge, was asked about the possibility that the former Death Row Records CEO had Eazy-E injected with AIDS, during a newly-released interview with the Murder Master Music Show.
He questioned why the F.B.I. hasn’t begun an investigation, given the YouTube video of Suge speaking on injecting someone with AIDS being the “new thing.”
“I can’t believe that the F.B.I. or somebody—I mean that show is all over YouTube,” Jerry Heller said. “He said ‘Ya kill ‘em. You inject ‘em. Eazy-E style.’ I mean, come on. Do they not care when an African American kills another African American? Do they not care? I don’t know, man. I mean, why haven’t they solved Biggie’s murder? Why haven’t they solved Tupac’s murder? If Eazy was murdered, if he was injected, why haven’t they solved it? You can’t tell me that people who can track down Osama bin Laden and kill him in Pakistan can’t find out who killed Biggie on Wilshire Boulevard coming out the fuckin’ Petersen Museum with fuckin’ cops there. Makes no sense.”
Video footage of Suge on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in 2003, which resurfaced this month, shows the former music exec poking fun of Eazy-E’s death. At one point, he stated “They got this new thing out…They get blood from somebody with AIDS and then they shoot you with it. That’s a slow death. An Eazy-E thing.”
Additionally, the son of Eazy-E, Yung Eazy, recently informed his followers on Instagram that his father was murdered.
“I’ve been known my pops was killed.” Yung Eazy said in an Instagram post, which was uploaded this month. “His death never added up 2 what ppl have always said maybe they think we’re idiots blind to the truth idk….but 4 u new fans, youngsters & ppl who just don’t know much.”
