Eric Lynn Wright, best known as Eazy E and occasionally called “The Godfather of Gangsta Rap”, is an American hip hop recording artist. Eazy-E got visibility performing with N.W.A., after the group got a deal with Ruthless Records and released its debut record, entitled N.W.A and the Posse. In the 1990s, when N.W.A disbanded as a result of interior battles, EazyE continued his career as a solo artists. When it comes to day, Eazy E net worth is estimated at $8 million

Eazy E Net Worth $8 Million Dollars

His family sheltered in among the most dangerous areas in LA, in a district marked by an intensive action of criminal gangs. Spending most of his days hanging in the roads as opposed to sitting in the course, Eazy E was kicked from high school before completing the 10th grade. As you’ve already estimated, back in the time Eazy E net worth was equivalent to zero, so to be able to support himself the teen began selling drugs. Later in his life Eric frequently referred to himself as a “dope dealer”.

The free rappers shortly formed the group and released their debut record N.W.A. and the Posse, which enjoyed a significant commercial success and eventually received Platinum certificate. Still, it was nothing compared to the popularity of the second record- Straight Outta Compton. The record peaked at No. 37 on Billboard Top LPs and eventually spread some 3 million components, adding a sound amount to Eazy E net worth. Eazy’s debut solo album, Eazy Duz It, has additionally enjoyed a popular recognition. Eventually it was certified 2x Platinum.

Nevertheless, his long time buddy Jerry Heller has once revealed that he’d never found Eazy selling anything but marihuana. According to him, self-labeling “thug” and “dope dealer” was part of Eric’s act, which gave him some kind of protection in the roads: if folks in the hood struggled that you are dealing cocaine, they’d fink twice before messing with you. Still another sources maintain that Eric was rather a big fish in Los Angeles drug marketplace, earning tens and perhaps hundreds of thousands each year.
