PE Family Salutes Ice T And The Late, Great Eazy-E
“That’s the most real shit that’s happened in Hop Hop in a long time,” recounts Ice T in an interview regarding Eazy-E’s passing, “Me and Eazy were okay, but we weren’t business partners ‘cuz we had a falling out over something back in the NWA days. So I was like ‘Okay, me and you will be friends, we just can’t f—k around over this money’.”
Ice T and Eazy-E are upheld as two among Gangsta Rap’s most iconic pioneers, with exception to a little jesting regarding who and which song came first. Although if you ask Ice-T he’d most definitely claim bragging rights with his “Cold Wind Madness” released in 1982. Nevertheless, this day in hip-hop acknowledges both icons with equal acclaim!
