Rapper Eazy-E is known as one of the founding members of the legendary hip-hop group, N.W.A. He died in 1995, just one month after being diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. Eazy-E left behind kids and a wife, who he married just weeks before he died.

Eazy-E and the members of N.W.A. are often hailed as one of the most controversial acts in music history. The group, which also included Arabian Prince, Ice Cube, DJ Yella, Dr. Dre, and MC Ren, skyrocketed to fame following the release of their debut album “Straight Outta Compton.” The record peaked at #4 on Billboard 200, and produced tracks like “F--k tha Police.” N.W.A. remained active until 1991, and its members later pursued solo careers.

Eazy-E was working on music until his death in 1995, with his sophomore album being released posthumously. In a 2015 interview with Billboard, Ice Cube opened up about Eazy-E’s influence and explained that he was an irreplaceable part of N.W.A. “N.W.A would have not existed without Eazy-E. No doubt in my mind,” Ice said. “He was bold and not scared of anything. He was 21, 22, I was 16 — to me he was fearless.”

And while it's clear that Eazy-E left a mark on the hip-hop industry, he has also left a lasting legacy. He reportedly fathered 11 kids during his life, and some have followed in his musical footsteps.
