DJ Yella Talks N.W.A Breakup, Biopic & Eazy-E’s Death

(AllHipHop News) Original N.W.A member DJ Yella has a lot of inside knowledge about the legendary group’s history. The 46-year-old producer spoke with Montreality about several topics related to N***az Wit Attitudes including their breakup, the upcoming biopic being produced by Ice Cube, and the death of Eazy-E.

On N.W.A’s breakup:

When the group broke up we were number one on the charts. I’d never heard – to this day – I don’t know personally of a group that broke up at number one. They break up when they’re last or not selling, but we broke up at number one. I don’t think it… it might have just been too big to keep that group together. It was too perfect. So, it was just meant to be. Cube left, then Dre left, then that was it. Once we finished mixing the Niggaz4Life album the group was over. People didn’t know that, but the group was over then.

On the N.W.A movie:

It should be coming out 2015. Right now they’re casting, so they should be shooting very soon. I don’t know when, but I would say close to summer. I will be a consultant on the set, and everybody’s putting in their input on the story. Everybody said their own parts about the story.

On Eazy-E’s death:

I don’t talk about [Eazy-E HIV conspiracy theories], because I don’t know nothing about it. I just stayed away. I don’t know what happened. I went to go see E at the hospital. It was the day that they announced that he had it, but when I went and seen him he was already in a coma, so he couldn’t talk or anything. They had gave him medicine so he couldn’t move. I didn’t really get to say what I wanted to say. I had seen him that January, a few months ahead of time.

    He definitly aged the most out of the people in NWA… I’m sorry but he could play Ice Cube’s father in a movie no makeup necessary…

      Why are you focused on a man’s looks for Whiteboy? He’s 46 how’s he supposed to look? FYI white people age the worst and you’re white so stfu. Thanks.

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        dam bruh he aint say Yella was hella cute he just said he old… lmao why you roast eem like that? hahhahaha

      • Illegalstick33

        Damn! Why so sensitive? Your panties stuck or somethin?

      • Jayson C Williams

        That’s the problem. We’ve let white ppl dictate our music lifestyles etc to long to a point where u nolonger see it or see the damage. They want you to be color blind so that you won’t hate them or won’t band together to go against them. I’m not a racists but just because I have white friends doesn’t mean I don’t express exactly what I’m saying here to them! Facts

      • Dan_Tebasco

        Why so sensitive? Mister black don’t crack, clearly Yella proves that whole thing quite untrue he looks like he’s pushing 60…

      • U.P.T.nw4eva

        First off you know nothing about being black. When WE have dark skin we age well. Light skinned blacks have white people features and they have to use suntan lotion. So black doesn’t crack idiot. Why am I explaining this to a Whiteboy?

      • Dan_Tebasco

        You don’t have to explain anything I just take it for what it is Racist bs…

      • Charismatic eNegro Jef Vinson

        LOL @ “Why am I explaining this to a Whiteboy?”

    • Arrie Mental Woodard

      you never heard much from yella when the group was together… but if you think about you dont really hear from deejays until the roup has disbanded. how much have you ever heard Terminator X… my point exactly lol

      • Charismatic eNegro Jef Vinson

        He co-produced a lot with Dre on NWA albums (High Powered Productions) He also did a lot of work on the first Bone Thugz Album. That “Foe tha Love of Money” song was Yella’s beat.

      • BulldogCG

        yea, a lot of “Dre” tracks back then weren’t really “Dre” Tracks. Slapped his name on it to make it sell. He had enough money to pay producers for they beat and sell it for a come up as some “Dre” production. I think I remember about that Porn thing now that bruh mentioned it.

  2. KingsCountyCrooklyn

    glad to know they all will have some input into this movie project. Hope Ren is doing good for him self.

    • water_ur_seeds

      Yeah Ren was mad underrated, probably my favourite MC in NWA… Hes got classic albums after the group split up…
