ERIC WRIGHT 1963-1995
Eric Wright, known to the world of music as Eazy-E, passed away of AIDS the week of 20 March. Wright, who was 31, entered LA's Cedars-Sinai hospital on 24 February. He went for a lung problem. When he was diagnosed as having full-blown AIDS, Wright made no bones about it. He was the first rapper ever to admit such status.
Eazy is the same sort of loss as Kurt Cobain, which is to say he transformed the music around us. His voice was as unique as that of Nirvana's leader. And his group, NWA, created "gangsta rap". They also re-deployed the word "nigger": as pop discourse.
