Tags and topics realted to this article include Lil Eazy E. Interviews and Exclusive.
This January brings a new generation of west coast rap or should we say gangsta rap to the forefront. Lil Eazy E must be one of the ‘realest’ artists I have had the pleasure of talking to.
Lil Eazy E, oldest son of the legendary west coast gangsta rap icon Eric ‘Eazy E’ Wright, will drop his debut album on Virgin Records – ‘The Prince of Compton’ this January 2006.
It is said that first impressions are lasting impressions. If this is true the entire game of hip-hop and rap better be aware that it is time to take it up a notch or two if they want to stay up with Lil Eazy E.
You can have respect for artists in the game but the best kind of respect is respect that is gained; and this interview did just that for me. I gained much respect for Lil Eazy E and knowing that he is busy finishing his album and with all the other things going on that he has; to take time for his fans and to sit and chew it up and not rush thru this interview shows his appreciation for his fans and the fans of his father. He is the type of artist we need in rap today. Everyone is complaining about the state of rap and hip-hop and where it is headed; well with Lil Eazy E you get the feeling it is headed in a new direction; a real direction.
In talking with Lil Eazy E he used the phrase ‘Real Talk’ a few times and to borrow that from him – this interview is Real Talk with an artist who has a plan and you can tell he is going to make that plan work.
No matter what you may have heard or read other places, Lil Eazy E is the next generation of gangsta rap – period. Check out this interview and learn the real on Lil Eazy E in his words, not from someone who really don’t know but get it from the dude who lives it.
I would like to thank Marlene Meraz at Virgin-Records for getting this set up and affording me this great opportunity to talk to Lil Eazy E. And of course a big ‘Thank You’ to Lil Eazy E for taking his time and making this one of the best times I had in an interview in a long time.
I know that this is not the last we will hear of Lil Eazy E; I have the feeling that this is the start of something big – the New West Coast Generation. Make sure you’re on the look out for his album in January and we will keep you updated on the album and all the things Lil Eazy E has going. The first single ‘Gangsta Shit’ by Lil Eazy E off his upcoming album can be heard HERE.
Robert – First I would like to ‘thank you’ for taking time to do this, I know your very busy.
Lil Eazy E – Oh yeah I appreciate it, I appreciate you taking time.
Robert – I guess the number one question on everyone’s mind is the upcoming album; ‘The Prince of Compton’. Is the album still on schedule for a December release?
Lil Eazy E – As a matter of fact it is January, mid to late January.
Robert – I heard the track ‘Gangsta Shit’ and was very impressed. Is it a good representation of the rest of the album?
Lil Eazy E – As far as lyrical content, it’s a story base. I’m giving you the events of who I am, So yeah it leads into the album real good. Cause my whole album is basically just a story I’m telling with the trials and tribulations I went thru with out my father, with my father, and this industry with out my father; ya know growing up a man. So as far as lyrical content yeah it is a good representation of the album.
Robert – Are there tracks for everyone – for the street and the ladies?
