(The Washington Post) – Yung Eazy, the son of N.W.A co-founder Eric “Eazy-E” Wright, thinks Suge Knight killed his father.
Yung Eazy, whose real name is Eric Wright Jr., shared an Instagram post of a now-infamous interview Knight had on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” in 2003, his first televised appearance after being released from prison for parole violations stemming from assault and weapons convictions. Knight, 50, is currently awaiting trial for murder after he was captured on video allegedly running over and killing Heavyweight Records co-founder Terry Carter in late January. He also hit another man who survived. The altercation reportedly followed a dispute which originated on the “Straight Outta Compton” set. Knight turned himself in to the West Hollywood Sheriff’s station the next day.
Here’s what Knight told Kimmel, who made a joke about Knight’s notoriously violent reputation by donning a bullet-proof vest while hosting Knight’s segment.
“This the new thing, right? So, if somebody gonna do something to somebody, technology is so high, right? So, you shoot somebody, you go to jail forever,” Knight said. “Kids, you don’t want to go to jail forever, right? So, they got this new thing out, people sell ’em all the time. They get this stuff they call — they get blood from somebody with AIDS — and then they shoot you with it. That’s the slow death.”
