Citing the 2003 interview with Marion ‘Suge’ Knight and Jimmy Kimmel that went viral last week, Yung Eazy, the rapper’s third child, took to Instagram to discuss the eyebrow raising “AIDS joke” Knight told on the show, as well as some discrepancies in the hit N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton.
In an interview with HipHopDX, B.G. Knocc Out, a protegé of Eazy’s, said many people could have killed the rapper. Because Eazy (real name Eric Wright) fired his former manager Jerry Heller and had problems with his wife at the time, he believes the rapper had a target on his back.
“I believe in my heart somebody did something to Eric,” B.G. Knocc Out told HipHopDX. “Whether it was Jerry [Heller], whether it was [his widow] Tomica [Woods-Wright], I have yet to really know the truth about it. But, for a person to have full-blown AIDS [that quickly is suspicious]. My little brother, his father died from full-blown AIDS … from sharing a needle [‘cause] he was [an addict]. Now, I seen this man go through these stages, from HIV to full-blown AIDS. And, when you get a cold, any little thing like that, your whole immune system shut down. So you have to go into the hospital just to recover. Now, to be around Eric for the last three years of his life and he never had an episode like this – never ever – something is strange, something is real odd.”
Knocc Out wasn’t the only Ruthless Records artist to share the same thoughts. In an interview with VladTV, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony claim none of the seven women the rapper had children with had the AIDS virus. They also claim Eazy contracted the symptoms rather quickly, leading them to believe he could have been lethally injected with it.
“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.
Meanwhile, Straight Outta Compton has continued to dominate the box office. After landing at No.1 again this past weekend, the biopic has made $111.1 million in the U.S and Canada.
