Easy E

by Sean

My hero is Eazy E. His real name is Eric. He grew up in Compton California and went to Compton High School. He dropped out of high school and joined a gang. After that he started rapping and later performing.

He wasn't always a rapper. His career started as a dj but his friends told him that he should be rapping so he started in a group called N.W.A. and was a big success.

After the group N.W.A. he started a solo career and became famous.

He died of AIDS in 1991 and his music is still just as popular as when he made it.
