The N.W.A scion spoke to TMZ at the unveiling of the street named after his father in Compton this week, where he urged Dre to visit Eazy’s mother.
“Ever since I was 10 years old, DJ Yella was the only one at the funeral,” Lil Eazy-E said. “30 years later, do you think I care? No. You gotta think that all of the West Coast should be here because he put on for the nation.”
He continued: “God bless him. If my grandmother’s happy, I’m happy. She’s still alive, you know. So if y’all wanna say hi to her, you know? Dre, you was on her couch when your mom kicked you out. So you could come sit there and say hi. She is still living and well.”
On Wednesday (November 22), the city of Compton officially changed the name of Auto Drive South’s 100 block to “Eazy Street.” The N.W.A icon’s friends and family were present at the ceremony, some of whom even spoke to the crowd.
“I’m so proud of everybody that’s here today,” Eazy-E’s mother Kathie Wright said to those in attendance, holding back tears. “And say I love you all and thanks so much for showing up at this presentation. Thank you very much, the city of Compton.
“I would like to thank everybody that had a part in this and I love you and God bless, and he is watching from a distance. Thank you very much. Everybody have a nice day and have a Happy Thanksgiving.”
In an Instagram comment, Flavor Flav celebrated the moment by writing: “Congratulations Easy E,!! Your mother is so blessed to have had you,,, you are so blessed to have a mom like her.”
