Lil Eazy-E Says His Father Was Worth $50M When He Died

Lil Eazy-E

While the Straight Outta Compton biopic depicted Eazy-E as going through financial troubles, he died very wealthy... according to his son.

In an interview with Vlad TV, Lil Eazy-E talked about the hardships he's endured growing up, despite his father being worth an estimated $50 million at the time of his death.

"He's worth $50 million at the time," he revealed, while explaining that a lot of people felt they were entitled to a piece. "We're talking how big of an individual he was at the time... and that's without Bone Thugs-n-Harmony getting a Grammy or being multi-selling group that he didn't get to see."

Elsewhere in the interview, he explains -- from his perspective -- his father's decision to leave his wife Tomica Wright his stake in Ruthless Records. In the end, Tomica gained full control of the company.

"We had a trust fund. It came from the situation that they instructed in court when he was on his death bed," Lil Eazy explains. "[Tomica] has been very helpful in different situations in different life, current events with different children. Working with her, I seen a lot of that."

Regarding the money that Eazy-E makes, even in his death, Lil Eazy says he didn't grow up with a silver spoon in his mouth... and has to stay on the grind. "I still gotta wake up in the morning and go grind it like I was born and raised to do... in the same blood line that I had. I gotta go get it," he says.

"I blew my trust fund before I could receive it," Eazy explained. "I have children, so the trust fund went to the processing for them before I was able to receive it... The little bit that we did get, divided between 9-10 kids at the time, could be quite a much for what we received. But, it's not quite as much that would be expected."

    Who wrote this mangled piece of literature? "I have children, so trust fund -when- to the processing for them..." you mean 'went'? Lot's of mistakes in this! eh, whatever... I'm just tired of reading poorly written pieces, wish some of these authors actually graduated high school or double-checked their work. It's embarrassing.
