more Eazy-E.
way more Helter Skelter.

November 23, 1988 - 2023: 35 years of: Eazy-Duz-It.

The little punk you love to hate.

Fucking red-hot from N.W.A.'s August 1988 gangsta gangsta debut Straight Outta Compton LP, the world was now looking at their mesmerizing hype-man: Eazy-E. Ruthless, cocked and loaded from the slums, to center-stage, to cultural icon: Eazy did it !

"Welcome to Eazy's Playhouse... you stupid mutherfokker !"

The 8 Balls are rollin' on "(Prelude) Still Talkin", as Eric lays all the cards on the table. The home invasion of "Nobody Move" and sick drum-beats of DJ Yella on "2 Hard Mutha's" keep the clock in check. Politically incorrect and full 360º violence, the title-track of "Eazy-Duz-It" fires away in a rage of fury with the dope arena-vibe of "We Want Eazy", while the non radio-friendly "Radio" confirms that the kid in black doesn't give a fuck.

The Compton bread bastard and his "Boyz-N-The-Hood (remix)" spears fear in this updated version. The initial underground bass-beat single anthem that epitomized the car-jackin' dealin' and hustlin' scene ...Eazy's beloved high-rollin' life-style.

RIAA-certified and Ground Zero for hardcore hiphop:
Straight Outta Compton LP 3x Platinum and Eazy-Duz-It LP 2x Platinum ...it's fucking safe to say that Autumn 1988 got it's ass served on a ...Platinum-platter. Although labelled a solo-release, all members of N.W.A. have massive input in both writing and production, this could / should almost be considered N.W.A.'s second full-lenght ...in a three-month span.

The world was now looking at L.A. in a very different way. The real hard shit is right here: Compton, the anti-glam hood. Eazy would spring back solo with 1992's no warning-shot 5150: Home 4 The Sick MCD.

Live in 1988

December 4, 1992 - 2022: 30 years of: 5150: Home 4 Tha Sick.

He's out there ...and up to no good !

After spreading fear and panic throughout America and the FBI and after the disintegration of N.W.A. ...the home-boy you love to fear is back for more. Solo again, still strong and sicker than ever ...Eazy goes 5150 !

The hardcore beat "Only If You Want It" cracks skulls wide open, while the clean head-shot kill of "Neighborhood Sniper" reminds us that closing the blinds would be a good idea if you cherish living. More sick hip beats wipes the competition, stand aside 'coz "Niggaz My Height Don't Fight". The audacious / hilarious closing-track "Merry Muthafuckin' Xmas" shows another side of Christmas in Compton.

A fun MCD, no disses, just plain ass-whoopin' ! Hot hand on the mic and finger on the trigger, no time to die hard as Eazy-E would go postal on 1993's It's On (Dr. Dre) 187um Killa MCD.

NB: "5150" is the California code for an individual deemed psychiatrically unstable by the State.


RIP Eazy-E (1964-1995)
