"Classic Fridays...Eazy Duz it

Today marks the 15th Anniversary of the death of one of Hip-Hop's most influential figures. We're talking about a man who symbolizes the saying "I Came, I Saw, I Conquered."
Eric Wright, better known as, Eazy E, graced the stage and tv screens as part of Hip-Hop's Greatest Group of all time, NWA. He was the face of the group and also the one with the msot charisma. After discovering that he was in the final stage of HIV, Eazy sent a public statement to his family, friends, and fans while in the hospital.
I may not seem like a guy you would pick to preach a sermon. But I feel it is now time to testify because I do have folks who care about me hearing all kinds of stuff about what’s up.

Yeah, I was a brother on the streets of Compton doing a lot of things most people look down on — but it did pay off. Then we started rapping about real stuff that shook up the LAPD and the FBI. But we got our message across big time, and everyone in America started paying attention to the boys in the 'hood.' Soon our anger and hope got everyone riled up. There were great rewards for me personally, like fancy cars, gorgeous women and good living. Like real non-stop excitement. I’m not religious, but wrong or right, that’s me. I’m not saying this because I’m looking for a soft cushion wherever I’m heading, I just feel that I’ve got thousands and thousands of young fans that have to learn about what’s real when it comes to AIDS. Like the others before me, I would like to turn my own problem into something good that will reach out to all my homeboys and their kin. Because I want to save their asses before it’s too late.

I’m not looking to blame anyone except myself. I have learned in the last week that this thing is real, and it doesn’t discriminate. It affects everyone. My girl Tomika and I have been together for four years and we recently got married. She’s good, she’s kind and a wonderful mother. We have a little boy who’s a year old. Before Tomika I had other women. I have seven children by six different mothers. Maybe success was too good to me. I love all my kids and always took care of them. Now I’m in the biggest fight of my life, and it ain’t easy. But I want to say much love to those who have been down to me. And thanks for your support. Just remember: It’s YOUR real time and YOUR real life.
A week later, Eazy succumbed to the disease, leaving a wife and son. But here at Pushin' Mounts we're not here to dwell on death, so here we present to you some of the best works from the original face of the West Coast, Eazy E...
