Eazy-E’s grave littered with beer bottles & trash

Days after the anniversary of Eazy E‘s passing, his son has now come forward to reveal how mistreated the late rap icon’s grave site has been.

According to Lil Eazy E, he discovered all sorts of litter surrounding his dad’s grave this week.

Eazy E’s grave has become a popular destination for thrill-seeking boozers and potheads — this according to the late rapper’s son. Eric Wright Jr. tells TMZ, he visited his dad’s place of rest on the anniversary of his death — March 26th — and when he arrived, the gravestone was covered in empty beer bottles and marijuana cigarette butts. Wright says he spent several minutes cleaning it off — then sat for a few hours reminiscing about his father and the time they spent together. Wright tells us, he visits his dad’s grave every year to “release my pain and hurt … [and] every year I take a different message that he has said and use it as an inspiration.” (TMZ)

Eazy-E’s daughter, Erin Bria Wright, is paying tribute to the late rapper with a new photo shoot. The N.W.A. rapper’s daughter has recreated two of his solo album covers, “Str8 Off Tha Streetz of Muthaphukkin Compton,” and “It’s On (Dr. Dre) 187um Killa.” “It’s been 17 long years since my father passed away and I miss him dearly,” she said in a statement. “This year I decided to pay homage to him by recreating two of his most famous album covers, I feel so proud to be apart of his history. Hopefully one day he will finally get the recognition he truly deserves for his impact and accomplishments that paved the way for so many artists and urban music moguls of today. I love you Dad, R.I.P.” (The Juice)

As the story goes, Eazy E became a rapper by accident. In 1987, the man then known as Eric Wright hired his future N.W.A bandmate Ice Cube to write a song called “Boyz-n-the-Hood” for another group signed to his upstart label, Ruthless Records. One of the guys in the other group balked at rapping the lurid lyrics, so Eazy, who’d been listening to a demo version of the song for days on end, stepped into the booth and laid it down himself. As a rapper, that was probably Eazy’s peak. Those verses weren’t only the first he put on wax, they were probably the best. (Phoenix New Times)

Wright’s music shall reign supreme forever thanks to the copious number of MCs who cite him as a reference point, such as the Game, Nipsey Hussle, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. Even Eazy’s son Eric Wright Jr. (aka Lil Eazy-E, who was ten years old at the time of his dad’s death) has followed the same career path his father created. (MTV)
