Eazy-E reportedly has “reels” of unreleased music, some of which includes joint projects with the legendary rock band Guns N’ Roses.
According to one of the late rapper’s close friends, the founder of Ruthless Records passed away about 30 years ago, but there could still be some posthumous albums circulating.
Arnold “Bigg A” White was interviewed by Rock The Bells during a listening session in march for Daz Dillinger and Lil Eazy-E’s joint album, The Legacy. He said that Eazy and Slash from Guns N’ Roses had collaborated together before.
“There is unreleased music still out there,” Bigg A confirmed. “We know for a fact that he had two or three or four reels in his car when he went to the hospital. Those reels came up missing.
“He had songs with Slash from Guns n’ Roses — he had songs with Guns n’ Roses on those reels. Those reels have been found ’cause they wound up in Canada. That’s a whole other story, but what happened to them [since], I don’t know.”
He continued: “I don’t know if the estate got them, but there is unreleased music, and Yella has some, I know for a fact that there is some unreleased acapella vocals, that he was working on some records with a couple of producers I worked with and last I heard was that they were up in Dre’s studio.”
On March 26, 1995, the Godfather of Gangsta Rap passed away from complications related to AIDS-induced pneumonia.
The N.W.A frontman’s estate released Eazy’s only posthumous album, Str8 off tha Streetz of MuthaphukkinCompton, in January 1996 which reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200, and several years later an EP in 2002 titled Impact of a Legend.
