Today, March 26 1995 pioneering Compton, California
rapper/executive Eazy E died from complications of AIDS just three weeks after
being diagnosed. He was 31.
Wright, who founded Ruthless Records', is arguably
one of the most influential figures in hip-hop history, helping to jumpstart
"gangsta rap." Eazy was also one of the founders of N.W.A.
"I wanna say is Eazy E's Ruthless Records
was the first sreet independent label and it needs to be recognized," Krayzie
Bone told AllHipHop.com. "Every rapper from the West coast branched from
him and can't deny that."
Bone, who signed to Eazy's Ruthless imprint before
he was diagnosed with AIDS, has released 5 albums and two greatest hits collections
for the label.
"If he was still alive he would still be
right on top," Krayzie continued. "Hiphop needs to give 'em more props,
because he did what people was scared to do first, and that's keep it real gangsta."
Bone is currently headlining the "Take Me
Home" tour supporting their latest album, Thug World Order.
