an album toward the end of the year, the budding rapper told AllHipHop.com.Erin

Bria Wright, called “E.B.”, will drop her first solo album on EazyStreet

Entertainment. Her

sound, she says, is not necessarily like her father’s, but influences of

him can be found in her music.“My

brother is following [in] the footsteps of my father with his gangster rap style,”

E.B. told AllHipHop.com “Me on the other hand, my sound is a lot [more] girlie.

I think my sound is more like a Young Lauryn Hill or Fergie. I want to incorporate

singing as well as rap into my music.”The

album, with production featuring Juice, Frederick, and possibly Black Eyed Peas

member will.I.am (who was signed to Ruthless), is currently untitled and is expected

to drop in late 2007.In

the meantime, the rapper’s daughter is being home-schooled and working on

a track for an upcoming movie soundtrack. E.B.

also plans to start a clothing line the wife of Jerry Heller, Eazy-E’s partner

in founding Ruthless Records. The

young rapper/singer also hopes to create a movie about the life of her father,

and says she would love to play him in the role.“I

think it was cool how Hilary Swank played that role as a boy in “Boys

Don’t Cry,” E.B. said. “That movie was great! I would love

to do something like that in my father’s movie.”E.B.’s

mother, Tracie, is currently working alongside her daughter to produce a documentary

commemorating the life and death of Eazy-E. On

the 12-year anniversary of Eazy-E’s death, E.B. noted that her family has

invested in spending time with each other to honor their father’s legacy.“Today

is a very special day for me. Although it has been awhile since my father’s

passing, it’s still a very emotional day for me and my family,” she

said. “I love doing interviews on this day, especially this day, because

it means so much to me. I miss him a lot, yeah I really do.”Jerry

Heller, Eazy-E’s manager and longtime friend and business partner, said “Eazy-E

was an incredible visionary.""He

was the conceptualizer of the entire West Coast Hip-Hop movement," Heller

told AllHipHop.com. "Both artistically and business-wise. His tragic death

left a void that can not be replaced by mere mortals.”Eric

“Eazy-E” Wright, one of the pioneers of gangsta rap as a founding member

of N.W.A., died March 26, 1995 of AIDS in Los Angeles at the age of 31.
