There are at least two documentaries in production on N.W.A. founder Eazy-E and his last days.
While Gangsta Rap pioneer mogul Eazy-E already has a son that pursues Hip Hop in Lil Eazy-E, he has a daughter venturing into film. E.B. Wright, who is also an aspiring musician, told BET.com that she is currently producing a documentary on her father, with an emphasis on his March 26, 1995 death. The film is reportedly called A Ruthless Scandal, named after Eazy's label, Ruthless Records.
"A lot of people don't know the truth behind his death," E.B. Wright told BET. "There's definitely a story out there of how people think he died but a lot of it is a misconception, so I think it's time to tell the story of exactly what happened." According to reports, Eazy-E died from complications from the AIDS virus, shortly following a diagnosis. Twenty-two year-old E.B. was born during Eazy's final days with super-group N.W.A., which at one, time included Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella, before a controversial disbanding.
Wright claims the film will involve N.W.A. members and other Ruthless artists.
There is another documentary on Eazy-E in production, called Ruthless Memories. The film is directed by Sergio Hernandez, and features interviews with Eazy's longtime business partner Jerry Heller and later protege, B.G. Knocc Out.
