In an exclusive interview with Master P, the Nola mogul offered his opinion of the “Straight Outta Compton” movie, homing in on the Eazy-E character.
The mogul said that the movie could have done better with Eazy-E, who was the only member of N.W.A. with a criminal records and gang affiliation early on.
“The N.W.A. movie, I really didn’t like Eazy-E’s character. I liked the movie but I knew Eazy-E. He was a real street guy. I know Eazy-E, I know the truth. All that stuff isn’t really how Eazy-E was. [Suge Knight putting his hands on Eazy-E?] Come on man, you couldn’t do Eazy-E like that. Not the Eazy-E I knew. I knew it was going to be repercussions. So you know, a lot of people change their lives and grew up but at the same time, I feel like the Eazy-E character wasn’t all the way portrayed. This guy was on the streets, he’s the one who made the money and put everybody behind him. That’s what I didn’t really feel like was portrayed. … They did their thing, it was a great movie but that’s just my opinion.”
As previously noted on AllHipHop.com, Master P has his own biopic on the way called “The King of the South.”
