Eazy E’s son Lil Eazy-E is reportedly close to signing with Death Row Records, the label his famous father feuded with in the 1990s. Lil Eazy spoke with Death Row Records/WIDEAwake Entertainment yesterday (September 13th) about joining label, which is no longer owned by the infamous Marion “Suge” Knight.
“The Money Gang, the N.W.A. family and I would like to give respect and love to Tupac Shakur and the Hoopla/WIDEawake/Death Row [Records] family. I’m excited to soon bring you a new generation of Rap that will reign in and bring success like the old Ruthless/Death Row era,” said Lil Eazy-E in a statement.
“I am excited about this possibility with Hoopla [Worldwide] in bringing together this Death Row/Ruthless saga, which is known as the biggest beef in rap history, into a new era with N.W.A. Entertainment, bringing the fans what rap has been missing – real Rap music,” added Lisa Marcum of N.W.A. Entertainment. “And what better way to do that than through Lil Eazy-E.”
Knight and Death Row had altercations with Eazy E and Ruthless Records in the early 90s as Knight helped Ruthless star Dr. Dre get his release from the label. Dre joined Death Row and went on to produce some of the most acclaimed albums on the iconic label.
