B.G. Knocc Out Says Eazy-E Was Not Broke, As Portrayed In Movie
Eazy-E protege B.G. Knocc Out recently pointed out a few inaccuracies with the N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton.
Specifically, the West Coast rap vet didn't like how Eazy was portrayed as nearly broke... and how Dr. Dre was depicted as a gangster.
"To me, this is what it seem like. It seem like [Dr.] Dre tried to make himself seem like the man," B.G. Knocc Out explained, in an interview with Vlad TV. "He turned himself into a gangster and everybody know that's not Dre's character. Eazy was a cool dude don't get me wrong, Eazy wasn't no pushover, no super tough guy, but at the same time, he wasn't gonna let you f*ck with him either. So the fact that they made him look more docile than he was, I didn't like it.
"The fact that they tried to make him look like he was broke, he bought weed [and] he was finna start slanging, all that sh*t was bullsh*t," he continued. "Eazy was rich as f*ck... All those things, to me, it seemed like it was done blatantly. Eazy was still balling out of control. He was rich as f*ck. His company was worth hundreds of millions of dollars. His bank account was still flooded. He had Bone [Thugs-N-Harmony], the number one group. [He had] the number one album. What the f*ck? What is he doing broke in the movie?"
Also, B.G. questioned why he was left out of the movie, but Snoop Dogg was added.
"The fact that they brought Snoop [Dogg] in and didn't bring us in, or [didn't] bring Bone in or anything Eazy had going on. He had a huge roster at Ruthless [Records]," he explained.
