Jerry Heller was N.W.A’s manager and remained Easy-E’s manager after the N.W.A split up in 1991. With the recent release of the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton, it appears that a rumor about Suge Knight allegedly orchestrating Eazy-E’s death is again gaining fuel.
He questioned why the F.B.I. hasn’t begun an investigation, given the YouTube video of Suge speaking on injecting someone with AIDS being the “new thing.”
“I can’t believe that the F.B.I. or somebody—I mean that show is all over YouTube,” Jerry Heller said. “He said ‘Ya kill ‘em. You inject ‘em. Eazy-E style.’ I mean, come on. Do they not care when an African American kills another African American? Do they not care? I don’t know, man. I mean, why haven’t they solved Biggie’s murder? Why haven’t they solved Tupac’s murder? If Eazy was murdered, if he was injected, why haven’t they solved it? You can’t tell me that people who can track down Osama bin Laden and kill him in Pakistan can’t find out who killed Biggie on Wilshire Boulevard coming out the fuckin’ Petersen Museum with fuckin’ cops there. Makes no sense.”
