The D.O.C. Discusses Depression & Working With Eazy-E In Playboy Interview

Legendary Dallas rapper, The D.O.C., talks about the car crash that changed his life, the depression that followed and working with Eazy E. During and exclusive and rare interview with Playboy, the rapper spoke rather candidly about his life in the Hip Hop industry. He talked about working on “We Want Easy” which featured Dr. Dre and MC Ren and was later featured on Eazy’s debut album “Eazy-Duz-It”. “Dre takes me to the studio and I meet Eazy, and Ren, and Yella. And Dre puts on this drum beat and he says, ‘Can you write me something?’ You know, it took about 10-15 minutes and that song was ‘We Want Eazy.’ Ended up being the guys first single,” said The D.O.C. He went on to discuss the car crash that took his voice and subsequently ended his career as a rapper. “The whole West Coast movement changed direction the night I had that accident,” said The D.O.C. “Once that shit happened I was just out of there. I didn’t care about anything, but getting drunk. Getting high and trying to get away from that pain of not being able to do the one thing that I was good at.” He revealed that over time his will to succeed and be a part of the industry that has shown him so much love has inspired him to return to his native Dallas-Fort Worth to help impact the lives of young and upcoming talent in the area. “You can’t let go of the dream that easy man. They all say you got such a story. You got such a story to tell and [it’s] so powerful and it’s so positive,” the rapper explained. “And that’s where I’m at right now. Dallas, Fort Worth is where my heart is. I want to pluck the young, deserving people from this city and give them the benefit of those experiences and see if I can get some shine down here because they deserve it too.” <iframe width="640" height="360" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/BkFhxT-SL4c" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Eazy-E Day In Compton

    Today (April 7th) people in Compton, California are celebrating the memory of Eric "Eazy-E" Wright. The former major of Compton, Omar Bradley, declared April 7th to be "Eazy-E" day stating "Eric made Compton famous not just in California, but all over the world," at Eazy's funeral, continuing "I recognize Eazy as a young man who grew up in the streets of Compton--and brothers and sisters, we know it's not 'easy' growing up in Compton."
    Eazy, known for founding Ruthless Records which released albums by rap groups like N.W.A., The D.O.C., Above The Law, Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony and others. Jerry Heller who co-founded the label with Eazy said "March 26, 1995 was the saddest day in the history of rap music," continuing "Not a day goes by that Gayle [Heller] and I don't think about my long time friend and business associate with the fondest remembrances. He was an incredible visionary, and truly ‘the little big man.’ R.I.P my brother."

Ruthless Records Celebrates 20 Years With 5 New Acts & Releases

Celebrating it's 20 year anniversary, Ruthless Records is planning on doing it big in 2008 with five new acts set to release, after they recently re-negociated their distribution pact with Sony/RED. The new roster includes R&B Na'Shay, bilingual pop singer/musician/actress Agina, rapper/songwriter/producer Hopsin, party/dance trio Street Runnaz Click (comprised of The Trillest Beatz, Free Sinatra and J-Riva) and rapper Stevie Stone. "We have a good mix here that represents the next generation," Ruthless president/CEO Tomica Woods-Wright said. Eazy-E's wife continued saying "These are hard-working and focused acts who will give us a good jump to keep us going another 20 years and then some. It's not necessarily about looking for fame and stardom. It's about a team striving for the same thing: sustaining success through nurturing strong singer/songwriters, producers and business people."


Tomica Woods-Wright has been running the label since the 1995 death of her husband, N.W.A. founding member, Eric Wright, better known as Eazy-E. Eazy started the label in 1987 with $7,000 of his own money and 5,000 12" records of his single "Boyz N The Hood." The L.A. based label went on to release gold & platinum selling records by female rap trio J.J. Fad, N.W.A. , Michel'le and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. Eazy's wife says "The hardest thing about [maintaining the label] has been everyone underestimating our mission, goal and dedication," continuing, "The easiest thing about keeping Eric's dream alive is being passionate about something I love doing. He taught me how to stay hands-on and focused; to not allow anybody else to tell me what I can and can't do: the hustle mentality."

Ruthless Records is back; signs deal with Sony

Ruthless Records, one of the most successful independent music labels of all time, celebrates its 20th anniversary with a full roster of fresh new talent and an exciting 2008 release schedule. The new face of Ruthless Records includes a Latin Pop female, an R&B angel, a hip-hop lyricist, a mid-western rapper and a get-the-party-started group from Atlanta.

Now in its twentieth year of operation, Ruthless has renegotiated its distribution deal with Sony and is poised to introduce a new generation of artists that cross many different genres of music. Nashay is an R&B princess with an angelic tone. Agina is the bilingual pop princess who utilizes her sultry voice to woo audiences in both English and Spanish. Hopsin is the self-contained triple threat (rapper / songwriter / producer) whose vivid storytelling is equally thought provoking. Stevie Stone raps with a confident swagger minus the aggressive street innuendo, and Street Runnaz Click rhyme using their party/dance-driven music to bring the crowd to their feet. 

Officially founded in 1987 by the late Eric "Eazy-E" Wright with $7,000 of his own money, 5,000 twelve-inches of his single, "Boyz N The Hood," and a maverick spirit, the groundwork for the label was formed. The enterprising 23-year-old sold more than 500,000 copies throughout South Central Los Angeles by word of mouth alone.

In 1988 Eazy-E discovered the first female rap group to ever be nominated for a Grammy Award. J.J. Fad was totally contrary to the image everyone thought Eazy would project. "Supersonic" was an instant R&B/Pop smash and became Ruthless Records' first million selling album and first gold single.

That same year, what would become one of the greatest selling and most controversial rap groups in history, Niggaz With Attitude (NWA), was born. Fusing the talents of other California natives, Eazy established a dream team of hip-hop genius yet to be duplicated. The five man crew -- Eazy E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella -- single-handedly changed the hip-hop landscape, forever giving west coast rappers a voice. NWA's sophomore release, "Straight Outta Compton," was the first album to ever reach platinum status without radio airplay. As the members of NWA became a household name, Eazy-E simultaneously released his solo debut, "Eazy Duz It," and it too moved to multi-platinum success.

Over the next five years, Ruthless continued to produce gold and platinum selling titles in R&B, pop and rap including Michel'le ("No More Lies"), The D.O.C. ("No One Can Do It Better"), Above The Law ("Livin' Like Hustlers") and MC Ren ("Kizz My Black Azz" and "Shock of the Hour"). But it was the 1991 release of NWA's "EFIL4ZAGGIN," which debuted at #2 on Billboard's pop charts, the highest charting rap album debut, selling more than one million copies in less than two weeks, that solidified Ruthless' musical longevity and Eazy-E's genius. With the 1994 introduction of rap innovators Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Ruthless became the example for introducing new styles in rap. Their debut "Creepin On Ah Come Up," fueled by the hit "Tha Crossroads," sold more than two million copies, earning the group their first Grammy nomination.

Eazy's untimely death in March 1995 not only left behind an unprecedented hip-hop legacy but a wife and children. Tomica Woods-Wright picked up the pieces and fulfilled the promise to her husband to continue his legacy, quickly transitioning to become the President & CEO of Ruthless Records. Eazy's nonconformist methods of success remain the cornerstone of the Ruthless legacy twenty years later.

After twenty years, Ruthless Records President & CEO Tomica Woods-Wright is confident about the future. "It's about one thing right now, the artists -- what their contributions will be and the next layers they will add to the legacy of the label." With a rich heritage already established, Ruthless Records has no choice but to continue to rise to the top.

Ice cube promotes Eazy E Album

Ice cube was on MTV for an interview last week and at the end he told everyone to go out to the store and pick up the new Eazy E cd. With Ice cube being a former NWA member I think it's cool of him to promote the album a little since Eazy E can't do it himself anymore.
