Ebie Wright Wants An Answer from Ice Cube
Recently, Ebie Wright, daughter of the late rapper, Eazy E, expresses her frustrations. Wright is bothered because Ice Cube is not taking part in a documentary about the life and death of the late rapper.
“It’s really sad that he hasn’t addressed this yet because I grew up with his sons, and we have a close bond,” Ebie expressed. “He actually assured me that Ice Cube was willing and ready to support. He said he would do anything for me, and he was on board. However, when we tried to schedule the interview, he’s been avoiding it.”
Why Is Cube Dodging Calls?
Wright tries to understand the veteran rapper’s silence years after the beef.
“I honestly don’t understand why Ice Cube wouldn’t discuss my dad with me,” she stated. “He has talked about Eazy-E on various platforms, big and small, so I’m really not sure. I don’t have the answer. We would have to ask him.”
Ice Cube, Eazy E, along with Dr. Dre, DJ Yella, MC Ren and Arabian Prince, founded the landmark rap group N.W.A. The collective helped usher in a new subgenre of hip-hop known as gangsta rap. Good times don’t last forever. In fact, Eazy E and Ice Cube had a falling out, which resulted in Cube leaving the group. Then he recorded “No Vaseline,” considered as one of the greatest diss records of all time.
Eazy E’s Swift Downfall
Eazy E died at age 31 on March 26, 1995, from complications of AIDS, according to the Los Angeles Times. The obituary detailed that the rapper passed in the ICU of a Los Angeles hospital more than two hours after a collapsed lung caused some heart issues. He discovered that he had AIDS while in the hospital the month prior.
Clearing the Air
There have been plenty of conspiracies surrounding Eazy E’s sudden, tragic death. Eazy E’s son Marquise Wright, who performs under the stage name Yung Eazy, shared an Instagram post in 2015 showing a 2003 interview with Suge Knight on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he discussed injecting a person with AIDS.
The Missing Piece in The Documentary
Ebie Wright yearns for the doc A Ruthless Scandal: No More Lies to help her uncover the truth about her father’s life and death. She claims the Ice Cube is one important voice missing from the project.
“This thing is going to be incredible,” she told Too Fab. “There are many people supporting me and sharing their experiences and stories about my father. They talk about how he influenced and helped them, opening doors along the way.”
“Honestly, the only person who hasn’t spoken about it yet, and is crucial to the story I’m telling, is Ice Cube,” she added.
Rap fans should expect the release of the A Ruthless Scandal: No More Lies documentary soon.
