Eazy-E’s influence as a rapper in the Hip Hop world cannot be understated as he propelled West Coast rap and gangsta rap by leading the group N.W.A and its label, Ruthless Records. He passed away 26 March 1995 due to HIV/AIDS.
While speaking to TMZ, Eazy-E’s daughter Ebie said that she is excited about the entertainment lineup for Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, less than 15 miles from Compton, where Eazy-E grew up and formed N.W.A. with Halftime Show headliner, Dr. Dre.
Ebie, who feels her father would probably have been part of the Halftime Show lineup if he were alive, stated that the late rapper would be proud because he would see an extension of himself on that stage in Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar.
Due to this, Ebie would love it if her father was acknowledged during the Halftime Show performance and would be okay even if a “RIP Eazy-E” could be said during the performance. We will have to wait and see if Ebie will get her wish or not.
