When Eazy-E entered the music scene in 1988, no one could have predicted the impact that his presence would soon have. Without help from radio or commercial singles, he built a musical empire that would quickly produce a long string of top-selling albums, and introduced the world to such superstar acts as NWA, Dr. Dre, Kokane, and Bone Thugs n Harmony. Becoming one of the youngest executives to own and operate a record label, Eazy-E revolutionized not only the sound of urban rap music, but the business aspects that surrounded it as well. Then, on March 26th, 1995, almost without warning, the news came: the man who helped pioneer the sound of rap music on the west coast had died.
Seven years later, the legacy that began with Eric Wright continues with another chapter as his son, Eric 'Lil' Eazy' Wright, Jr., releases the first project from his new label, Lil E Records, a tribute documentary on the life of his legendary father, the original hip-hop thugsta, Eazy-E.
