DJ Yella Says He Was The Only NWA Member At Eazy E’s Funeral
There was plenty of tension between Eazy E and some of his former N.W.A mates after the band fell apart.
Still, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre both visited E in the hospital when he was dying of AIDS.
They didn’t, however, attend his funeral. As DJ Yella explained to Vlad TV, he was the only N.W.A. member to make it to Eazy’s final resting spot.
“Some people probably just can’t take it,” he said. “I don’t know what the reasons are. We never talked about it, even to this day. That subject will never get talked about.”
Yella also shared a story about the last time he talked to Eazy. The DJ had gotten into porn production and was actually shooting a scene at Eazy’s house when E called him from the hospital and told him to “watch out.”
Yella took that (and still takes that) to mean Eazy was warning him to lay off the porno chicks. But others believe Suge Knight somehow assassinated E with an AIDS syringe.
