Remembering Eazy E (1963-1995)

On this date, 16 years ago, we lost Hip Hop icon, Eric “Eazy -E” Wright.  Wright died on March 26th 1995 ten days after anouncing he had contracted the AIDS virus.  Eazy E is known for creating hip hop rap group NWA, Dr. Dre, and Bone Thugs N Harmony.  In 1986, at the age of 23, Wright had allegedly earned as much as $250,000 from dealing drugs. However, he decided that he could make a better living by becoming involved with the Los Angeles hip-hop scene, which was growing rapidly in popularity. He then began recording songs during the mid-1980s in the garage of his parents’ home.
