B.G Knocc Out Alleges Eazy-E Was Murdered, Given AIDS On Purpose

B.G. Knocc Out

B.G. Knocc OutCompton rap vet B.G. Knocc Out — who is best known as one of the late Eazy-E’s closest collaborators before his untimely passing — is finally readying his long overdue solo debut next week, titled Eazy-E’s Protégé.

Delays were credited to a lengthy prison sentence, and when he finally touched down, a parole violation sent him right back in. However, B.G. hasn’t given up … and on August 23rd, his album finally hits stores.

In support of its release, the rapper chatted with HipHopDX about a variety of topics. Among them, B.G. explains the days leading up to Eazy’s diagnosis of AIDS … and how he believes he was injected with it, rather than catching the disease through sexual encounters.

Below is an excerpt from the interview:

DX: You and Krayzie Bone share the same theory about Eazy’s demise that you spoke on during “N My Prime.” Do you really believe though that Jerry Heller somehow injected Eazy with [the HIV virus]?

B.G. Knocc Out: I believe in my heart somebody did something to Eric. Whether it was Jerry [Heller], whether it was [his widow] Tomica [Woods-Wright], I have yet to really know the truth about it. But, for a person to have full-blown AIDS [that quickly is suspicious]. My little brother, his father died from full-blown AIDS … from sharing a needle [‘cause] he was [an addict]. Now, I seen this man go through these stages, from HIV to full-blown AIDS. And, when you get a cold, any little thing like that, your whole immune system shut down. So you have to go into the hospital just to recover. Now, to be around Eric for the last three years of his life and he never had an episode like this – never ever – something is strange, something is real odd. And then you gon’ come out and tell me when the man go in there for bronchitis, you gon’ come out and tell me this man had full-blown AIDS. And we done been to New York, we done been to Chicago in below zero weather [and] he never got sick. He never had an episode. Like, c’mon bruh. Who are you kidding?

Before everything hit the fan with Eric and Jerry Heller, these brothers from the Nation Of Islam from Chicago – some of [Minister Louis] Farrakhan’s right hand men – [came to see Eazy]. We was at Ruthless Records and these dudes walked up in the office, just stormed in one day while we was in there. Nobody had no idea they was comin’. [They] stormed in the office, into Jerry Heller’s office, and told Eric to “Come here.” Eric got up and went into the conference room. They were in there for like two or three hours. And I swear, when they came out of there Eric had a different look on his face. He seemed like he was shook up about something. … And like a week or so later, he started firing Jerry [and the rest of Heller’s relatives at Ruthless]. He fired Jerry Heller. He fired Terry Heller. He fired Gary Ballen. And they were all family. Jerry and Terry is brothers; Gary is their cousin.

[Following that] me and my brother were finishing up our album, Real Brothas. And we had the song “Dogg Pound Killa,” [which] was another “Real Compton City G’s” record ‘cause Eric was a part of it. The night before we go into the studio Eric had an episode with his bronchitis. He go to the hospital [and] they kept him overnight. That next day he came directly from the hospital straight to the studio. He didn’t go home; he had the same clothes he had on the day before. [He] came to the studio, we in there, we got the record up. Me and my brother’s part is [already recorded] – my brother wasn’t actually there ‘cause we had did our part like awhile before – but we just brought the reel to reel to the studio for Eric to do his part. Eric only had eight bars to put on the whole song. So we sittin’ in the studio for like two hours and he finally show up. When he show up, some of his other groups – H.W.A. and I think Steffon or some other people – came and they was takin’ up his time. So, I kept goin’ to butt in they little meeting like, “Hey, Eric we gotta turn our album in, can you please come do your eight bars real quick?” And he was like, “Alright, I’ll be in there in a second.” So, I go back and butt into they meeting again like, “Eric, c’mon bro’. Niggas been up here for five hours waiting on you already, can you come do your part?” And he’s like, “Alright, I’ll be in there in a second.” The last time I went into the hallway the man was in there by himself sittin’ on the floor wheezing, like terribly. And I was like, “You alright?” I sat down next to him, and he was tryin’ to talk, and he had this big manila envelope in his hand, pulling out these faxes and all this stuff. He had records from where money was missing from the label – millions of dollars that he said Jerry was stealing from him. And Jerry was sending him idle threats – faxes and stuff like that. And he was showing me and the guy from Audio Achievements, who owned the studio [Ruthless artists recorded in]. And, he had these inhalers that I never seen before, these big, huge-ass inhalers, and he was tryin’ to hit his lungs wit’ em. And it seemed like his breathing was getting better and then it just got worse. So, when he started gettin’ real bad and he started sweating, I ran and got his two bodyguards [and] was like, “Hey man, y’all gotta come get the dude. Somethin’ ain’t right.” They came and picked him up, put him inside the car, drove him to the hospital, and that night is when it came out on the news.

So it’s strange, it’s a strange situation. And that’s what leads me to believe there’s something more.

  1. you look like you got it too nigga lol
    why you wait 20 years to tell it
    and why it take you 20 to drop an album???
    “inject” deez lol

  2. yea man he was locked up and coming out about some shit like that can get u killed nigga are u a dumb nigga or what think mother fucker think

  3. Huh, but that really doesn’t explain your theory. I’m not saying that I don’t believe you. Anything is possible. But it sound like he had HIV for a very long time and by the time you guys found out it was full blown AIDs. No disrespect to anyone though. May he rest in peace.

  4. nah eazy e was tellin howard stern he dont got it in the early 90s

  5. regardless of whether it was from a sexual encounter or from a needle attack, the pathology of the disease would’ve been the same, taking the same amount of time to cause morbidity. so no… this guy’s conspiracy theory doesn’t really hold water.

  6. if anyone had him infected with aids it was Suge “black as” Knight, when dre and suge founded deathrow dre was still having to pay eazy a fucking ton of cash, ya think suge woulda been ok with that?……………..com on son!! jerry heller having some one killed ? Ask Dre what happened, id bet anything he knows exactly how it happened, but i also heard that eazy was a long time H addict, and if thats seriously the case, then it woulda been easy to infect him im sure…………..( NO PUN INTENDED) but how the fuck did he die from it anfd his wife not have it????????
