Seems like there will be an N.W.A. revival in the next few months. With talks of a movie in the works about the legendary super group that featured the likes of Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, Ruthless Records founder and fellow N.W.A. rapper Eric “Eazy-E” Wright is the subject of a new documentary in production entitled Ruthless Memories. Production company Ruthless Propaganda is making the film, using new interviews from Eazy’s N.W.A. band-mate MC Ren, along with his longtime business partner, Jerry Heller.
Directed by Sergio Hernandez, Ruthless Memories also includes interviews with several Ruthless Records artists from later years, including B.G. Knocc Out, who appeared on one of Eazy-E’s last hits, “Real Muthaphuckkin’ G’s.” The film is planned for DVD release in Fall 2012.
Eazy-E died from complications of the AIDS virus in March, 1995. Ruthless Records is still in operation, run by Eazy’s widow Tomica Woods-Wright.
