According to Arnold “Bigg A” White, hip-hop manager for Lil Eazy-E, the late rapper had unreleased music that included collaborations with Guns N’ Roses. White stated that Eazy-E, also known as Eric Lynn Wright had several reels of music in his car before he died in 1995, some of which were believed to have contained songs with Slash and the rock band.
Although the whereabouts of these recordings remain unknown, DJ Yella and some producers claim to have unreleased a capella vocals of Eazy-E, possibly from those same recordings. The possibility of a collaboration between the West Coast gangsta rap legend and the rock icons is not entirely far-fetched given the popularity of both genres at the time.
“There is unreleased music still out there. We know for a fact that he had two or three or four reels in his car when he went to the hospital. Those reels came up missing. He had songs with Slash from Guns n’ Roses — he had songs with Guns n’ Roses on those reels. Those reels have been found ’cause they wound up in Canada. That’s a whole other story, but what happened to them since, I don’t know. I don’t know if the estate got them, but there is unreleased music, and DJ Yella has some, I know for a fact that there is some unreleased a capella vocals, that he was working on some records with a couple of producers I worked with and last I heard was that they were up in Dr. Dre’s studio.
Eazy-E was a rapper and record producer who was a prominent figure in the West Coast hip-hop scene during the 1980s and early 1990s. He was a co-founder of the rap group N.W.A. and played a key role in popularizing gangsta rap. Eazy-E’s unique style and controversial lyrics made him a polarizing figure in the music industry, but he remains a highly influential artist to this day. He died of complications from AIDS in 1995 at the age of 30.
