LIL EAZY-E’S MOM
Artist Lil Eazy-E is Eazy-E’s oldest child, born in 1984. Although his mom and dad separated right after his birth, the rap icon remained devoted to being the best dad to him.
According to Lil Eazy-E, his mom was the rapper’s first crush, first love, and first woman. Even after their split, and his mom’s marriage to someone else, their love still blossomed.
While celebrating his mom’s 55th birthday in June, the artist recalled how his mom once asked him to ask his dad if he still loved her. He threw the question to Eazy-E while spending the weekend with him, and the rapper replied in the affirmative.
The birthday tribute was accompanied by a photo of Lil Eazy-E’s mother, looking young and beautiful, as she posed in a pink knitted gown.
Eazy-E’s daughter, ReeMarkable, who has gained success in the music scene has also posted about her mom on occasions. In May, the East Atlanta native shared photos of her mom in honor of Mother’s Day.
Some of them showed the musician’s mom, @iamdejavu_, carrying her as a baby, while others showed the two women, looking identical as they posed together in their adulthood.
Taking to the caption, the singer gushed about her mom, referring to her as the original pretty gangsta. She also acknowledged that her mom taught her to hustle, without sugar-coating anything. The upbringing paid off, making Remarkable (Cherrin Wright), the solid woman she became.
On Mother’s Day, Erica Wright celebrated her mom, by sharing a stunning photo of the woman, flanked by her kids. She accompanied the photo with a heartfelt tribute, which read:

In another post, Erica shared a throwback photo of her mom and some relatives posing at a funeral. She described her mom as a beautiful woman.
Tomica Woods was Eazy-E’s only wife, with whom he shares two children, Dominick and Daijah. The pair tied the knot in September 1995, twelve days before the rapper passed away from AIDS-related complications.
Woods was pregnant before the rapper's death, welcoming Daijah six months later. Remarkably, neither of his kids tested positive for HIV, the AIDS-causative virus after his death.
Following the rap icon’s demise, Woods expressed sadness over the turn of events, especially as his numerous lovers and business associates haggled for control over his empire.
The then-26-year-old widow admitted the ordeal was shocking, adding that many who claimed to know Wright never did, as they never got to live with him.
Going further, Woods stressed that there was more to his life than his fortune, contrary to what others taught. Woods ended up inheriting her late husband's Ruthless Records, leading to several lawsuits that dragged in for years.
Among the numerous people who contested Wood's claim to Eazy-E's empire was his employee, Mike Klein. In his lawsuit, Klein alleged the rapper was heavily medicated during his final days, which forced him to sign over his empire to Woods.
The signature on the marriage certificate was also obtained under heavy medication, according to Klein. Klein believed he had a claim to half of the firm, as the rapper turned it over to him in 1992. However, Woods and Eazy-E's attorney Ronald Sweeney were quick to deny the claims.
