Eazy-E died in 1995, due to complications stemming from AIDS. However, there’s been theories that point to the rap icon actually being killed via injection of the virus… which one of his sons believe.
On Instagram, Yung Eazy recently told his followers that his father was murdered.
“I’ve been known my pops was killed.” he wrote in one caption. “His death never added up 2 what ppl have always said maybe they think we’re idiots blind to the truth idk….but 4 u new fans, youngsters & ppl who just don’t know much.”
Yung Eazy goes on to point out how Eazy-E was portrayed in N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, saying it’s evidence that foul play was involved.
“notice in#StraightOuttaCompton Eazy did not get sick until after the studio incident with suge and look how he acknowledged & admits on this interview with #JimmyKimmelinjecting ppl instead of shooting them is a new thing that’s done,” he writes. “Oh n let’s not touch the topic on Ice Cube naming his album “Lethal Injection” #FreeYourMind#RipEazyE #EazyE #F*ckSugeKnight.”
Yung Eazy isn’t the only one to express this theory. In 2011, Ruthless Records signee B.G. Knocc Out made the same assertion in an interview with HipHopDX.
“I believe in my heart somebody did something to Eric,” B.G. Knocc Out said at the time. “Whether it was Jerry [Heller], whether it was [his widow] Tomica [Woods-Wright], I have yet to really know the truth about it.
