Several of Ruthless Records' movers and shakers speak on the legendary label's founder in a DVD coming out this December.
Ruthless Records founder and rapper Eric "Eazy-E" Wright is the subject of a new documentary in production, Ruthless Memories. Production company Ruthless Propaganda is making the film, using new interviews from Eazy's N.W.A. band-mate MC Ren, along with his longtime business partner, Jerry Heller.
Directed by Sergio Hernandez, Ruthless Memories also includes interviews with several Ruthless Records artists from later years, including B.G. Knocc Out, who appeared on one of Eazy-E's last hits, "Real Muthaphuckkin' G's." The film is planned for DVD release in Fall 2012.
Eazy-E died from complications of the AIDS virus in March, 1995. Ruthless Records is still in operation, run by Eazy's widow Tomica Woods-Wright.
