Eric Wright Jr. (born April 23, 1984 in Compton, California), better known by his stage name Lil Eazy-E, is an American rapper and the oldest son of gangsta rap pioneer Eazy-E. Signed to Universal Motown Records, he became a Kelly Park Compton Crip at a young age and was only ten years old when his father died due to AIDS. His debut album, The Prince of Compton, has been continually pushed back since 2006 but is set to hopefully be released before the end of 2010. Lil Eazy-E was also once involved in a feud with rapper The Game, because he thought Game was overusing his father’s name. He is also good friends with Dr. Dre’s son Curtis Young aka Hood Surgeon.
Lil Eazy did a remix of his father’s hit single “Eazy-Er Said Than Dunn” in 2003 as a tribute to Eazy-E. The song was called “Lil Eazy-Er Said” and it appeared on Eternal E - Gangsta Memorial Edition w/ DVD.
Lil Eazy had a cameo in the music video Certified Gangstas with Jim Jones, Cam’Ron and fellow Compton native The Game. Lil E’ also did a song for True Crime: Streets of L.A. named “Get Cracking”.
Lil Eazy will release his first album titled Prince of Compton, in 2009. He is said to be collaborating with artists like DJ Yella, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Ice Cube and a few other artists. He hopes to reunite the living members of N.W.A on a track. The album’s first single will be “This Ain’t a Game” featuring Bone Thugs-N-Harmony members Layzie Bone, Krayzie Bone & Wish Bone.
