Fifteen years ago today Eazy E passed from A.I.D.S. He is the first hip-hop artist to succumb to the disease and had the courage to speak on it as he lay dying. Eazy E is a pioneer in hip-hop because of his group NWA. He also released his own solo music and discovered Bone Thugs N Harmony.
His son Lil’ Eazy spoke to MTV about his father’s influence on the music and the business side of the game. RIP Eazy.
