Eazy E is known by many as the Godfather of Gangsta Rap. Unfortunately, he passed away on March 30, 1995 due to complications of the AIDS virus. Before all that, we know he formed one of, if not the greatest hip hop group of all-time, NWA. Ice Cube eventually left the group, recorded a diss track and Dr. Dre also parted ways with Eazy E. After joining Death Row, Dr. Dre released his classic album, The Chronic where took shots at Eazy E. Eazy E responded by dropping his second EP, It’s On (Dr. Dre) 187um Killa. It became Eazy E’s most successful album by quickly going double platinum in 1994. The album was a diss to Dr. Dre, plus he included some jabs at Snoop Dogg. The most talked about track on the album was Real Muthaphuckkin G’s featuring B.G. Knocc Out and Dresta.
Honestly, this wasn’t the best work from Eazy E, but off the strength of the Dr. Dre disses, it serves its purpose. This would be the final album E would drop while he was alive. With his tragic passing, we didn’t get the chance to see the reunion of NWA. Years later, the group received the recognition they deserved as their movie, Straight Outta Compton did amazing box office numbers. As we all know, Straight Outta Compton was a movie about NWA which is also the title of their debut album. Check out the second EP dropped 25 years ago by the late, great Eazy E.
