In the ’90s, “Eazy’s Playhouse” was the place to be. The former den of iniquities that was owned by the late-rapper Eazy-E (pictured), aka the Godfather of Gangsta Rap and member of the hip-hop group N.W.A., was foreclosed by the bank earlier this year. Now it is being reported that the reason the house was foreclosed was because his widow, Tomica Wright, allegedly stopped making mortgage payments, reports TMZ.
With a black room with florescent pillows and a neon sign that read “Eazy’s Playhouse,” Eazy-E’s crib was notorious for scandalous all-night parties, bottle-poppers and their entourage members as well as hoards of women.
The 6,700-square-foot, 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom, Calabasas, Calif., manse was auctioned off for more than $2.2 million last spring. When Eazy-E, whose real name was Eric Lynn Wright, passed away on March 26, 1995, at age 31 from AIDS, the home was passed on to his wife. According to official records surrounding the property, which were just made public, Tomica fell behind in mortgage payments last year and wound up owing $168,278.78, so the home was sold at a foreclosure auction.
Still, Eazy-E, who began having sex at age 12 and had seven children with six different women, will now have his and his band members stories told on the big screen. With the success of Christopher “Biggie” Wallace’s “Notorious,” the film company New Line Cinema has the N.W.A. story in development. Eazy-E’s wife, Ice-Cube, and Dr. Dre are serving as the film’s producers.
