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.
“You know, it really breaks my heart that he hasn’t spoken on this yet because I grew up with his sons, and I have a really good relationship with them,” Ebie said. “He actually told me that Ice Cube was willing,” he said. “He was gonna do whatever for me, and he was down. Since then, when we tried to book him to do the interview, he’s been ducking and dodging.”
Why Is Cube Dodging Calls?
Wright tries to understand the veteran rapper’s silence years after the beef.
“To be honest, I don’t know why Ice Cube wouldn’t talk about my dad with me,” she said. “I don’t know because again, he’s been on many platforms large and small, you know, talking about Eazy-E. So I really don’t know. I don’t have the answer. We’d 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’s so many people that are talking on this about my father and are in support of what I’m doing, and have been there for me. And just have a lot of great things to say about him, and not just even great things, but also just telling their story… what they know, what they’ve seen, their relationship with my father. How he paved the way for them, opened many doors for them.”
“The only thing I will say honestly, is probably the only person that actually matters to this story I’m telling, who hasn’t talked on it so far, I’m just being completely honest… is Ice Cube,” she concluded.
Rap fans should expect the release of the A Ruthless Scandal: No More Lies documentary soon.
