[Commentary]Eazy Still Doing It 25 Years Later

Eazy ETonight on The Music Vox (October 9, 2013) I’ll be talk about the re-release of the Godfather of Gangster Rap, Eazy-E’s debut solo album, Eazy-Duz-It. The album came out in September 1988, only a month after NWA’s instant classic Straight Outta Compton. Imagine that, an artist being part of 2 iconic albums let alone in the span of 2 months, probably never will ever-ever happen again. To be fair though, Eazy-Duz-It is like an NWA record since the whole super team of Ice Cube, MC Ren, DJ Yella, Dr. Dre and DJ Yella did most of the heavy lifting. The album was riddled in controversy as it was the breaking straw for Cube who disputed his compensation for his writing efforts on Eazy-Duz It, including the gangster classic, Boyz In The Hood. This dispute ultimately led to Ice Cube leaving The World’s Most Dangerous Group to go solo. Eazy-E who had to be coerced in to recording Boyz In The Hood would end up delivering a album full of profanity laced rhymes over Dr. Dre’s production and a sample of the early days of the G-Funk sound. Eazy-Duz-It still stands the test of time with songs like Radio, Eazy-Duz-It and the heist of the century tale, Nobody Move. It didn’t matter if Eazy didn’t write any of his rhymes, he delivered them like nobody else. But what? No More ?’s.
