Dominick Wright’s Father, Eazy-E Short Bio
Born Eric Lynn Wright on 7 September 1964 in Compton, California USA, the son of Richard Wright and his wife Kathie., he grew up in one of the most notorious neighborhoods, noted for high crime rates and gang culture, Eazy-E dropped out of high school in tenth grade and lived off selling drugs, and at 22 years old, he already had around $250,000 from dealings.
However, his good friend and cousin was shot dead, and Eazy-E started looking for a more secure work and income option. He realized that he could make a better living as a rapper in the Los Angeles hip-hop scene, and in the mid-‘80s he started recording songs in his parents’ garage, birthing Ruthless Records.
Niggaz Wit Attitudes – better known to the world as N.W.A – formed in early 1987, with members Arabian Prince, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, DJ Yella, and MC Ren. Their first album was a compilation entitled “N.W.A. and the Posse”, which reached No. 39 on Billboard’s top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. However, Arabian Prince and Ice Cube then left the group, while others continued making music.
Their debut studio album as a group – “Straight Outta Compton” – was released on 8 August 1988 reaching No. 4 on the US Billboard 200 chart, and eventually achieving triple platinum status. Their second and last album was released on 28 May 1991 entitled “Niggaz4Life”, topped the Billboard 200 chart, and again achieved platinum status. Then N.W.A fell apart, as Eazy-E and Dr. Dre started a feud, which involved other people. Before his untimely death, Eazy-E released one solo album “Eazy-Duz-It” in 1988, while his second album – “Str8 off Tha Streetz of Muthaphukkin Compton” – was released posthumously in 1996.
Eazy-E was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS on 24 February 1995, after being admitted to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles with a violent cough. After examination, it was determined that his cough stemmed from HIV/AIDS-induced pneumonia, arguably contracted from a sexual partner. He passed away on 26 March 1995 and was buried on 7 April at Rose Hills Memorial Park in Whittier, California USA. He made several enemies during his life, and numerous controversies started appearing about his death, and several people from the music industry were allegedly associated with his untimely death, including Surge Knight.
In 2015, the biopic about Eazy-E and N.W.A was released, entitled “Straight Outta Compton”, with Jason Mitchell portraying Eazy-E, with O’Shea Jackson Jr. as Ice Cube, and Corey Hawkins as Dr. Dre. The film received an Academy Award- nomination for Best Writing, Original Screenplay, and a number of other prestigious awards.
In addition to Dominick and Daijah, Eazy-E fathered nine other children with seven different women. One of his children is Eric Darnell Wright, best known to the world as Lil Eazy-E, born in 1984, who is a rapper, CEO of NWA Entertainment LLC, and the manager of Compton Money Gang, which is a musical collaboration with his brother Derrek and members of his family.
According to reports, Eazy-E’s net worth at the time of his death was estimated at around $30 million.
