V101 is looking back all day at Eazy-E on the anniversary of his death.
He co-founded Ruthless Records and started N.W.A. with Ice Cube and Dr. Dre.
After his cousin was shot and killed, he decided to move away from a lucrative career in drug dealing, and move to the hip hop scene in Los Angeles.
After the popularity of N.W.A., disagreements with Ice Cube and especially Dr. Dre, over their manager, led to many problems.
He died from complications with AIDS in 1995 at the age of 30.
