Eric Lynn Wright, better known by his rapper name Eazy-E was born on September 7, 1964. He was an American West Coast rapper who virtually created the genre of ‘gangster rap.’ The underground rapper, along with other contemporaries like Ice-Cube, Dr. Dre, DJ Yella, and MC Ren, were members of the rapper group N.W.A which has had its influence to increase the popularity of rap music in the United States more than anyone else.  

Having been the major influence on the gangsta rap themes that would later dominate the commercial hip-hop market, the group became known for extremely violent and misogynistic lyrical content, with much of its sales fueled by adolescent male listeners who were empowered to objectify women and practice violence. 

Easy-E was a rapper who has had a major influence on the American Hip-Hop scene, although today we listen to artists like Drake and Major Lazer, it was the N.W.A that diversified the rap genre, and true hip-hop fans from the 80s and the 90s claim that rap music today is nothing like what was supposed to be, or was, back in the day.

Together, the N.W.A released their first album, “Straight Outta Crompton,” which is regarded as a milestone achievement in the history of rap music and still considered by many to be the greatest ever. 

Apart from having a significant legacy in the music industry, Easy-E also has left behind a legacy in his life that most people will find shocking. 

The underground rapper fathered 11 children in his lifetime, with more than eight women. 

Out of all the women he had relations with, he only married one, Tomica Woods. Easy met Tomica at a Los Angeles nightclub in 1991, and they got married four years later in 1995, only twelve days before his death. But they were in a fully functional relationship the entire period. In the four years of their relationship, the couple gave birth to a son, Dominick, and a daughter named Daijah, who was born six months after Easy-E had died. 

On February 24, 1995, Easy was admitted to a hospital in Los Angeles following a violent cough. Upon examination and tests, he was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. He publicly announced his health condition almost a month later. Although likely, Easy contracted the virus from a sexual partner, his children, and many in the gangster rap scene have debated that Marion “Suge” Knight was the one who injected him with a virus-infected syringe following their dispute regarding royalties and profit shares from the N.W.A. earnings. Only a month after his diagnosis, on March 26, 1995, Eazy-E died from AIDS-induced pneumonia. He was 30. 

In interviews, his children have reported that the rapper would often bring them to his concerts. Lil’ E, the rapper’s oldest son, remembers watching his father perform with the group N.W.A. from backstage. In 1989, he remembres standing next to Janet Jackson as the group performed in Los Angeles.

 

Here is a comprehensive list of all the eleven children he fathered in his lifetime and their whereabouts today.

Raven Wright

The only thing publicly available about Raven Wright is that she is Easy-E’s daughter. Apart from that, there is little to no information available about Easy’s daughter and her whereabouts. As a result, she stays out of the limelight and does not attend any parties or events where she is recognized as the famous rapper’s daughter.

 

Marquise Wright (Yung Eazy)

Eazy-E’s son Marquise Wright also known by his rapper name Yung Eazy was born on February 14, 1990. Yung Easy has followed in his father’s footsteps and is working to become a rap artist. He has a YouTube channel named IAmYungEasy and produces independent rap tunes and music.

However, he is keeping his father’s legacy alive in his music and his name.

Derrek Wright (Baby Easy-E [E3] )

Easy’s third son, also sometimes mentioned as the second, Derrek Wright, was born on January 28, 1988, in Crompton, California. Much like his father and his elder brother, Derrek is a rapper and produces music similar to his father. Of all the children Easy fathered, Derrek and his brother Eric truly follow the legacy and promote their father’s music via their own music. Derrek even dresses and looks very similar to his father. 

He also appeared in the music video for ‘Only If You Want It,’ alongside his father, when he was only eight years old. He took time to grow as an artist, and now he’s making good music continuing his father’s legacy.
