The new movie Straight Outta Compton depicts a certain scene that’s long gone down in music-industry legend: Suge Knight using threatening tactics to convince Eazy-E to give up any claim on his former N.W.A colleague Dr. Dre’s contract, a move that allowed Knight and Dre to form Death Row Records. But now Yung Eazy, one of Eazy’s sons, claims that the issues between Knight and Eazy went way beyond intimidation. Eazy died in 1995 of complications from AIDS. And on Instagram, Yung Eazy has shared a video clip of Suge Knight, in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, chuckling about the idea of murdering people by injecting them with AIDS-infected needles. And in that post, he intimates that Knight actually had Wright killed in just such a fashion: “Eazy did not get sick until after the studio incident with suge and look how he acknowledged & admits on this interview with #JimmyKimmel injecting ppl instead of shooting them is a new thing that’s done.” Here, look:
I've been known my pops was killed. His death never added up 2 what ppl have always said maybe they think we're idiots blind to the truth idk….but 4 u new fans, youngsters & ppl who just don't know much notice in #StraightOuttaCompton Eazy did not get sick until after the studio incident with suge and look how he acknowledged & admits on this interview with #JimmyKimmel injecting ppl instead of shooting them is a new thing that's done. 💉 the truth is out there its just blinded by the fact that Eric had alot of sex #FreeYourMind #RipEazyE #EazyE #FuckSugeKnight
Yung Eazy isn’t the first to at least contemplate that possibility. As Vibe points out, Wish Bone of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, in a recent VLAD-TV interview, claimed to be unconvinced that Eazy contracted AIDS on his own.
