Too $hort Says ‘I Don’t Necessarily Agree’ Eazy-E Died From AIDS Complications

Seminal Oakland rapper Too $hort’s new album “The Pimp Tape” drops Nov. 9, and he celebrated at the Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club in New York.

“The formula to my music is that it has to have comedy in it. The vulgarness cannot be digested without a little comedy,” he explained to Page Six. He recalled of his start that “Eazy-E was the person to take me on my first tour, and there was nobody telling him to do it.”

But “I did not used to hang out with Dr. Dre,” $hort said. “After the show, Eazy-E would go places . . . we are going out chasing women. Dre wasn’t even really into that, even back then. Eazy was my homie. We ran together, we did the strip clubs.”

Eazy died of complication from AIDS in 1995, but $hort said, “I don’t necessarily agree.”

He added, cryptically, “I don’t really want to get into that right now. But that is not how I think it happened. I just like to think of it like this: Since you brought up Eazy-E. Let’s say if there was no Eazy-E, how does that impact hip-hop? If you had no Eazy-E, you got no NWA, no Dr. Dre, no Ice Cube, no Tupac Death Row years . . . no Bone Thugs. No Aftermath, no 50 Cent, no Eminem — the way we know them. The branch that is called Eazy-E on the hip-hop tree is massive.”
