Eazy E was a legendary rapper, from Compton, known best for his work with NWA. He is often known as “The Godfather of Gangsta Rap”. He tragically passed away on March 26, 1995 from complications with AIDS.
It’s worth mentioning that for most of Dre’s solo career, him and Eazy were at odds with one another. It’s obvious that Eazy’s death (even though they had reconciled by that time) had a profound impact on Dre (the end of the I Need a Doctor video is Dre laying flowers on Eazy’s grave)
