A former Ruthless Records hip-hop artist just added more fuel to the conspiracy theory surrounding the death of N.W.A rapper Eazy-E.
“I’m-a tell you what happened with Eazy getting AIDS and I believe this to this day,” Frost, real name Arturo Molina, Jr., says in a clip from an upcoming documentary. “I don’t care if you guys got it on film. You can tell the world. They gave him tainted needles with acupuncture. Needles that tainted him, they gave it to him.”
The startling claim featured in “For the Record: The Story of Latinos in Hip Hop” comes after Universal’s “Straight Outta Compton” reignited interest in Eazy-E’s death in the spring of 1995.
Following the release of the N.W.A biopic, which showcases the rapper’s dangerous feud with Suge Knight, a 2003 clip of Knight joking about Eazy’s death on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” went viral.
“If you shoot somebody, you go to jail forever. You don’t want to go to jail forever,” Knight said in the “Kimmel” clip. “They have a new thing out. They have this stuff they called… they get blood from somebody with AIDS and they shoot you with it. That’s [a] slow death. The Eazy-E thing, you know what I mean?”
Eazy’s daughter, however, has dismissed the comment and any claim that the former Death Row Records executive is responsible for her father’s death.
“In that interview, he doesn’t say that he did it,” E.B. Wright said during a “Dr. Zoe Today” radio interview. “People kind of took that interview and [are] kind of running with it.”
Frost isn’t naming Knight, either. But he seems very certain a rap icon he calls “the devil” intentionally gave Eazy the disease that ended his life.
“What happened was is that someone — I won’t say the name, but people know the name. I don’t wanna say that name ’cause it’s the devil’s name, but another person in rap, if you know you’re history of rap, calls him the devil,” Frost said.
“If you know the history of Rap, West Coast Rap, you know who I’m saying. I was told even in my last conversation from Eazy not to even talk to that man. Not only that, but I think that they really had a stronghold of giving him tainted needles with the AIDS virus in him with acupuncture.”
To throw more validity behind the theory he believes to be true, Frost added: “Have you even heard of somebody dying in two weeks of AIDS? It’s unheard of.”
Frost signed with Ruthless in 1995, and released two records with the label before moving to Celeb-entertainment records in 1999.
