Gangsta Dresta Says Eazy-E Once Sought DJ Quik To Fill N.W.A's Gaps

The former Ruthless Records affiliate also recalls writing for The Godfather of Gangsta Rap 25 years after his death.

It has been 25 years since the death of Eric “Eazy-E” Wright, at the age of 30.

Throughout his life, Eazy-E didn’t just embrace the role of the underdog — he relished it. As a founding member of N.W.A, he helped himself and his Compton hometown flourish despite no radio airplay and strong opposition from the F.B.I. .centered-ad {

And when Ice Cube and Dr. Dre switched from group mates to foes, the soonly anointed “Godfather of Gangsta Rap,” persevered with some help from another underdog.

Gangsta Dresta spent five years of his adolescence in the California juvenile justice system, which turned out, had a media program. Dresta, whose real name is Andre Wicker, learned music and video production around the same time Hip Hop was becoming a fixture in popular culture.
