1.Ice Cube Remembers Eazy-E on the 20th anniversary of his death….
Twenty years ago today, the hip-hop world took a major blow when rapper Eazy-E passed away at the age of 31. As a significant part of classic hip-hop group N.W.A and also as a solo artist, Mr. E certainly delivered THAT flow that wold not only influence the mid-’90s rappers like Snoop Dogg, but pretty much every hip-hop artist that has jumped on the mic since then.

But first, a little “Straight Outta Compton” will set you right….
