Eric "Eazy-E" Wright's family unveiled a decked out tombstone for the rapper just in time for his 55th birthday, and they're certain he would've been pleased with it.


Eazy-E's family decided to put a new tombstone on his grave that celebrated his excellence and craft. Last Saturday, his family celebrated what would have been his 55th birthday at the Rose Hill Cemetery in Whittier, CA, with kids, friends, family, and die-hard fans coming out to pay respects.

The Decked-Up Tombstone

The tombstone showed photos of the iconic "gangsta rapper," with a quote saying "We loved him, but God loved him more." It also shows his real birthday, September 7, 1964, as his previous tombstone had the wrong birth year, saying 1963.


Of course, along with the photos of Eazy, they also noted that "He Put Compton On The Map," meaning he paved the way for other rap artists today.

Eazy-E's Sudden Death

Eazy-E passed away 24 years ago due to complications with HIV/AIDS. He was married to Tomica Woods just days after his diagnosis and 12 days before his death, leaving his entire estate in her hands.


The rapper had been suffering from a prolonged cold while promoting his tour with Ice Cube, but he ended up being diagnosed with AIDS and pneumonia.

Possible Foul Play

Three weeks later, he was dead. His daughter, Ebie Wright, feels there was foul play involved especially since he married so quickly and Woods-Wright was given his entire estate.


"My father was diagnosed with AIDS three weeks before he died. He was immediately isolated in the hospital, away from all of his friends and family. Soon after, his attorney of only two months draws up my dad’s living trust while on his deathbed," she shared.

Suspicions From His Peers

His longtime partner, Jerry Heller, agrees with Ebie, that the death was both unexpected and suspicious.


“Do I think that something fishy happened to Eazy? Absolutely. I don’t believe for a second that someone who had as much money as we did, could afford [care and treatment] like Magic Johnson could afford it—who doesn’t even test positive anymore. I don’t believe that he could’ve possibly died that way," he supported the claim.

A Planned Murder?

While Ebie and Jerry have their suspicions about Tomica, his son Yung Eazy believes his father was murdered by Suge Knight.


"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....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. Oh n let's not touch the topic on Ice Cube naming his album "Lethal Injection," he shares.

Suge Knight is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence for killing the co-founder of Heavyweight Records, Terry Carter. Yung Eazy believes he injected his father with the HIV virus that ultimately killed him since none of Eazy E's lovers were infected.
