Yung Eazy claims Suge Knight had Eazy-E injected with lethal drugs

It's been 20 years since the death of Eazy-E and those close to the N.W.A. rapper are still skeptical about the details of his passing.

Eazy-E's son, aspiring rapper Yung Eazy, has come forward with his own theory about his father's death, suggesting that it was Suge Knight who sent him to an early grave-- not complications from AIDS.


"I've been known my pops was killed. His death never added up 2 what ppl have always said maybe they think we’re idiots blind to the truth idk," Yung Eazy said. "But 4 u new fans, youngsters & ppl who just don’t know much notice in#StraightOuttaCompton Eazy did not get sick until after the studio incident with suge and look how he acknowledged & admits on this interview with #JimmyKimmel injecting ppl instead of shooting them is a new thing that’s done."

Yung Eazy was referring to an unearthed clip of Knight on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in 2003 in which he joked about a new "technology" where folks were being injected with blood infected by HIV. The video went viral earlier this month with the release of the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton.

Knight is currently facing murder charges for his involvement in a fatal hit-and-run incident which took place in Compton earlier this year.
