Eazy-E’s son, Lil Eazy, says Charlie Sheen’s life as HIV-positive won’t be as grim as his late father, who passed away from AIDS in 1995. Sheen is fortunate enough to live in a time where medical advancements have elongated the lives of HIV and AIDS patients, he told TMZ.
With the blockbuster summer release of Straight Outta Compton, the biopic of Eazy’s group N.W.A., a slew of conspiracies around the gangsta rapper’s death began to swirl the Internet. On Snoop Dogg’s classic Death Row album, Doggystyle, a skit titled “House Party” you find Eazy’s former partner Dr. Dre and Daz poking fun at Eazy’s condition.
Daz: “Ayo what’s up with them n***as that was on the TV dissin’ you?”
Dre: “Man f**k them n***as, man I ain’t thinkin’ about that old s**t, man.”
Daz: “Busta ass, HIV p***y-ass mother***ers.”
Dre: “Yo yo yo Daz, easy come, easy (gunshot noise).”
The album was released 1993. Eazy-E died in 1995.
In a 2003 appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Death Row Records CEO, Suge Knight joked about his preferred method of killing people. “See, technology is so high. So, if you shoot somebody, you go to jail forever. You don’t want to go to jail forever. They have a new thing out. They have this stuff they called — they get blood from somebody with AIDS and they shoot you with it. That’s a slow death. The Eazy-E thing. You know what I mean?”
