Eazy-E’s daughter Ebie Wright claimed “so many” people have offered their time and words for her documentary on her father except one of Eazy-E’s most popular and closest collaborators.
“The only thing I will say honestly, is probably the only person that actually matters to this story that I’m telling, who hasn’t talked on it so far — I’m just being completely honest — is Ice Cube,” she told Too Fab.
She said was heartbroken over Ice Cube’s absence because of her close relationship with his sons. She claimed she asked the NWA member’s oldest son, O’Shea Jackson Jr. After he confirmed that Ice Cube was willing to participate, she said Cube started “ducking and dodging” her when it came time to schedule his appearance.
“[His oldest son] actually told me that Ice Cube was willing, he was gonna do whatever for me, and he was down,” Ebie said. “Since then, when we tried to book him to do the interview, he’s been ducking and dodging.”
She expressed confusion in Cube’s refusal to appear in her documentary considering he’s spoken extensively on Eazy-E and his time as an NWA member in countless media appearances. She also pointed out that her documentary dives into Eazy-E’s life and death more than the NWA biopic did.
“There’s never been anything like this,” she added. “You’re never gonna get anything like this probably ever again. And even in Straight Outta Compton, it didn’t talk a lot about my father. It didn’t delve into his life. That was about NWA as a collective and the brotherhood, and it definitely didn’t focus on my father’s death and that’s what this documentary is.”
In the trailer for Ebie’s documentary, A Ruthless Scandal: No More Lies, she revisits the conspiracy theory that Eazy-E was murdered instead of dying from complications with AIDS. To hear what else she had to say about Ice Cube’s absence, check out the rest of the clip above.
