The most interesting thing about the sit down was when the group admitted that they weren’t convinced that Eazy-E passed away from AIDS.
The interviewer told the group that he once interviewed Eazy-E’s son, Lil Eazy, and he believed that his father died from foul play. Perhaps from a lethal injection or something of the sort.
That’s when Wi$h Bone gave his perspective on the N.W.A member’s death that he described as “real sudden.”
“Even to this day, none of his kids, none of his baby mamas, mistresses, nobody has came up with HIV or nothing like that. So just rationally thinking, something had to go on,” Wi$h Bone said.
Krayzie Bone added, “It’s just ironic because, I know people can live with HIV for years and look normal and look healthy, but when you’re about to die from AIDS, full blown AIDS, you’re gonna look like you’re gonna die from AIDS. I’ve seen people that died from AIDS and they look like they have AIDS.”
One question that came to mind when I was listening to Wi$h Bone speak on Eazy-E’s sexual partners was, “What makes him think that he knows every single person that Eazy-E ever slept with in his entire life?” It’s odd that he would believe that he knew who in Eazy’s past would have the deadly disease. After all, it’s not surprising that a past lover of the late rapper, that was/is indeed infected with HIV or AIDS, wouldn’t want to publicize her illness to the whole world just so people can know that a man she slept with decades ago died from it.
Krayzie Bone’s comments confused me as well. What does “having AIDS” even look like? The disease doesn’t look a specific type of way on an infected person’s body. If it did, people around the world wouldn’t be living with the illness for years before knowing that they had it.
