Bone Thugs-N-Harmony feel that their mentor Eazy-E doesn't get the respect he deserves -- and that it's probably because he died from AIDS.
Bizzy Bone tells TMZ, “Some people seem like they are afraid to commemorate him due to how he died.” Krayzie Bone adds, “[Pac and Biggie] died being known as gangsta heroes. Eazy died from a disease, so many look at that differently.”
Bone Thugs plan to showcase Eazy during their set at this year’s Rock the Bells festival with a virtual version of the former N.W.A. rapper performing alongside them. Layzie Bone says, “We are going to make sure we have the stage full of Eazy love." The four-city traveling fest kicks off in San Bernardino, CA on September 7th.
Eazy-E died from AIDS in March 1995 at age 31. He was one of the first prominent rappers to reveal that he had H.I.V.
The streets are really anticipating J. Cole's sophomore project, Born Sinner -- so much that he's pushed the release up from June 25th to June 18th. One little detail -- that's the day Kanye West's album is rumored to be dropping.
A source tells the Hollywood Reporter, "J. has been working non-stop to put out his album a week earlier -- living in the studio, bringing in full orchestras and a choir." And J. says, "I wanted to come out earlier, but I kept hitting these creative zones where I couldn't finish. 'Cause I kept making more and more and more. It…was effortless, how I made this album."
Despite plenty of evidence to the contrary, Kanye West wants you to know that he's no "M-F-ing celebrity!" West made the claim last night during a surprise performance at New York's Roseland Ballroom, where he went on an epic rant against paparazzi and Saturday Night Live.
West said, "All I do is make real music. All I do is sit in the studio and make real, real [stuff]. And that's it...So I don't want nobody trying to run up on me with no cameras, trying to sell pictures and [stuff] to magazines, asking me no dumb-ass questions, throwing me off of my focus," adding, "I ain't no celebrity."
West also shot down speculation that he would appear on a Saturday Night Live skit to poke fun at his recent run in with the paparazzi and a pole in Los Angeles. He said, "Hell, nah, I ain't doing no 'SNL' skits. This my goddamn life. This ain't no joke. That's it. Stop that [stuff] right there."
