    eric lynn wright (september 7, 1964 – march 26, 1995), known professionally as eazy-e, was an american rapper and rap mogul who propelled west coast rap and gangsta rap by leading the group n.w.a and its label, ruthless records, pushing the boundaries of lyrical content.

    born and raised in compton, a small yet violent city near los angeles, wright had several legal troubles before founding ruthless in 1987.[6] after a short solo career with frequent collaboration with ice cube and dr. dre, they joined, forming n.w.a, later that year.

    n.w.a's debut studio album, straight outta compton, released in 1988, highly controversial then, is now ranked among the greatest and most influential albums. the group released its third and final studio album, niggaz4life, in 1991, and soon disbanded.

    during n.w.a's splintering, largely by disputes over money, eazy-e became embroiled in bitter rivalries with ice cube and dr. dre, who had departed for solo careers in 1989 and 1991, respectively. resuming his sole career, eazy-e released two eps.[7]

    yet wright remained more significant behind the scenes, signing and nationally debuting the rap group bone thugs-n-harmony from 1993 to 1994. but in 1995, suddenly hospitalized and diagnosed with aids, wright died through its complications.
