Eazy-E's Daughter Commemorates the Anniversary of His Death, Lies On His Tombstone
E.B. and Eazy-E's tombstone
Yesterday was the 17th anniversary of Eazy-E's death. To commemorate the date, his daughter E.B., who is also a rapper, put on a gauzy white gown and curled around her father's tombstone.
She also re-created two of her father's iconic album covers. You can see them below.
The re-imagined covers feature new graffiti, such as "R.I.P. Daddy" and her Twitter handle, "@WeWantEB," a marketing campaign that riffs on her father's classic track "We Want Eazy."
Note that her re-imagined cover of It's on
Dr. Dre 187um Killa (above) lacks the bottle of Olde English or a joint.
Along with the photos, E.B. (which stands for Erin Bria) released this statement: "It's been 17 long years since my father passed away and I miss him dearly. This year I decided to pay homage to him by recreating two of his most famous album covers, I feel so proud to be apart of his history. Hopefully one day he will finally get the recognition he truly deserves for his impact and accomplishments that paved the way for so many artists and urban music moguls of today. I love you Dad, R.I.P."
She's appeared on MTV's My Super Sweet 16, Sweet 16 Reunion, TRL and Super Sweet 16: The Movie. Oh, and she's had cameos on four other My Super Sweet 16 episodes "as a special guest to other Sweet Sixteeners."
You can see her re-imagined Str8 off tha Streetz of Muthaphukkin Compton cover below.
E.B. was in the news in October, when she lashed out at her brother -- whose rap name is Lil' Eazy-E -- for assuming he would play Eazy in the Ice Cube-produced biopic Straight Outta Compton. Citing Hilary Swank's role as a male-identifying female in Boys Don't Cry as inspiration, E.B. wants to play him. Based on this photo shoot, we say give her the role.
