Eazy-E Essentials

Eazy-E Essentials

Short in stature but long on influence, Eazy-E boasts a catalogue that extends well past signature contributions to his first group, N.W.A. With a distinct, high-pitched rap style and no-nonsense lyrics, the Compton-born Godfather of Gangsta Rap was an undeniable, if unconventional, star. Early records like the Ice Cube-penned "Boyz-n-the-Hood" became gangster rap anthems. But don't ignore Eazy's '90s cuts; his evisceration of former partner Dr. Dre is an enduring diss that feels as scathing today as when it debuted.
