Master P Also Disputes Eazy E's 'Straight Outta Compton' Portrayal

By HHL Editors

Eazy E's daughter has already disputed how the hit biopic Straight Outta Compton portrayed her late dad. In particular, she questioned the scene in which Suge Knight beats E up.

Mater P, who knew Eazy, agreed, telling that E was much more of a real gangster than the movie made him out to be.

"The N.W.A. movie, I really didn’t like Eazy-E’s character. I liked the movie but I knew Eazy-E. He was a real street guy. I know Eazy-E, I know the truth. All that stuff isn’t really how Eazy-E was. [Suge Knight putting his hands on Eazy-E?] Come on man, you couldn’t do Eazy-E like that. Not the Eazy-E I knew. I knew it was going to be repercussions. So you know, a lot of people change their lives and grew up but at the same time, I feel like the Eazy-E character wasn’t all the way portrayed. This guy was on the streets, he’s the one who made the money and put everybody behind him. That’s what I didn’t really feel like was portrayed. … They did their thing, it was a great movie but that’s just my opinion."
There has been a lot of new chatter about E, who died in 1995, since the movie has become such a sensation. Among other things, Eazy's son has said the film raises question about whether Knight infected his dad with AIDS.
