Eazy-E Pixel by Vectorixelz Eazy-E Pixel by Vectorixelz
Third in the series of pixel drawings of gone(but not forgotten) Rap & Hip-Hop legends.

This pixel depicts Eric Lynn Wright, more well known as Eazy-E, one of the creators of the "Gangster Rap" music Genre.

As founder of Rutheless Records, and a prominant member of controversial Rap group N.W.A, Eazy was a sucessful artist with a distinctive youthful, high-pitched voice. His lyrics focused on Urban street life; guns, drugs, relations between residents and the police, and sexual activity and made him notorious in many circles.

Eazy died of Aids in 1995, and since, April 7th is celebrated as Eazy-E day in Compton, Califonia. Even in death, Eazy still inspires prominant Hip-Hop artists, while his son has adopted his stage name and continues is legacy.

He will always be remembered.
~ R.I.P Eazy-E~

Nice work, though technically Eazy E wasn't the founder of gangster rap, he originally did beats only under the name "H.B.O. - Home Boyz Only " He wasn't a rapper but was already friends with Dr Dre growing up in the same neighborhood.

Not many people know that the true story was that Dr Dre wanted to start the band called N.W.A. and wrote the first song "Boyz In The Hood" and told Eazy E to sing it which was Eazy E's first vocal track which originally he didn't want to do it because he said he couldn't sing and didn't want to do vocal tracks but Ice Cube and Dre finally got him to do it and he did a good job which because of that track they formed N.W.A. Eazy didn't know what some of the gangster terms meant, Dre and Cube taught him everything.

Dr Dre and Ice Cube made Eazy E, he wouldn't be so famous if it wasn't for them.

Search interviews with Ice Cube about NWA, he tells the story of it all happening, interesting story and a good one.

Also the son's of Eazy E and Dr Dre are forming band together called Son's Of N.W.A. :)
