Lil Eazy-E was 10 years old in 1995, when his father, Eazy-E, passed away from complications due to AIDS.
The site says Lil Eazy-E calls the actor “lucky” because of scientific advances in medical technology that will allow him to lead a long life with the virus and that he will get to see his children grow up.
Lil Eazy-E continues by saying the actor can help bring awareness to HIV/AIDS.
Ice Cube said that the depiction of Eazy-E’s battle with AIDS in the N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton, brought the seriousness of the condition to the attention of the public.
