She was specifically asked about rumors that former Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight orchestrated the N.W.A rapper’s death. Wright went on to reveal that Knight didn’t play a role in her father’s death.
The musician’s daughter also claimed that he was not beat up by Knight either, a scene which was depicted in the film, Straight Outta Compton.
“One of the most popular beliefs surrounding her father’s death is that Suge Knight administered HIV/Aids to Eric Wright during a confrontation at a studio where Eazy-E was forced to sign over Dr. Dre,” The Source writes. “Dr. Zoe as her usual blunt self asked E.B. directly if she felt Suge had anything to do with the death of her father. Her answer was, no he did not. She said yes, her late father was forced to sign a paper and they had pulled guns out but Eazy was not beat up.”
Despite the claims of Eazy-E’s daughter, his son Yung Eazy recently shared his belief that his father was murdered.
“notice in#StraightOuttaCompton Eazy did not get sick until after the studio incident with suge and look how he acknowledged & admits on this interview with #JimmyKimmelinjecting ppl instead of shooting them is a new thing that’s done,” Yung Eazy wrote in an Instagram post in August. “Oh n let’s not touch the topic on Ice Cube naming his album “Lethal Injection” #FreeYourMind#RipEazyE #EazyE #FuckSugeKnight.”
During her interview, Wright also revealed her plans to release a documentary on Eazy-E titled A Ruthless Scandal: No More Lies.
“There’s so much that people still don’t know about what he accomplished,” Wright said. “Doing things 20 years ago that people are just doing now.”
