N.W.A’s recent film Straight Outta Compton opened viewers’ eyes into the game-changing group’s rise to hall of fame status. But one of the more emotional moments within the F. Gary Gray-directed reel, Eazy-E’s untimely death, reignited a sentimental chord within those who’ve watched the movie.

Now, Yung Eazy, the Compton native’s son, is speaking out on his father’s passing. In an extended Instagram post, Yung Eazy claims Suge Knight orchestrated his father’s death.

“I’ve been known my pops was killed. His death never added up 2 what ppl have always said maybe they think we’re idiots blind to the truth idk….but 4 u new fans, youngsters & ppl who just don’t know much notice in#StraightOuttaCompton Eazy did not get sick until after the studio incident with suge and look how he acknowledged & admits on this interview with #JimmyKimmel injecting ppl instead of shooting them is a new thing that’s done,” he said. “Oh n let’s not touch the topic on Ice Cube naming his album “Lethal Injection.”


There have been statements made that coincide with Yung Eazy’s claims, namely Bone Thugs-N-Harmony’s interview with VLADTV. The group, who were mentored by Eazy-E, also thought the suddenness of his death was alarming.

“Even to this day, none of his kids, none of his baby mamas, mistresses, nobody has came up with HIV or nothing like that. So just rationally thinking, something had to go on,” Wi$h Bone said. Check out what else they had to say below.
