azy-E, Compton OG. Eazy-Duz-It, 1988, his debut solo album.

This record took the world by storm because it was the first release from the Compton based group N.W.A featuring Eazy-E and all the greats like Ice Cube, Ren, Dre and the whole clique. This record right here was the door kicker, and kicked the door open for the whole clique and crew. Still Talkin The first song on the record. I fell in love with this record when my homeboy J. Rock picked me up one night for a football game and he put this CD in. This was the first song on there, and that shit was bangin like a muthafucka! The bass, the words, and the story. It was so cleverly put together, the way they were talking like old people. Cube and them were playing characters. It was just cleverly thought out. Once you heard that first song, you already knew this was going to be a classic record that was going to last for twenty, thirty years. 2 Hard Muthas One of my favorite records on this album. 2 Hard Muthas with Ren and Eazy-E, with drums played by Yella. I love the way the song starts off when they ask for

the drum machine, and Dre said he left it with Pooh. You dumb muthafucka, what the fuck we going to do now Hey man, I got some drums in the back....Man I can play the drums Bullshit! I used to fuck it up at Compton High Give this nigga some sticks *drum sounds* 2 Hard Muthas was a bad record man. Real talk. Its hard to explain it; you got to listen to this shit to understand what Im feeling. 2 Hard Muthas was a real record. I used to live that. Boyz-N-The-Hood (Remix) Woke up quick at around noon, just thought that I had to be in Compton soon. One of the hardest hood records ever put together. Of course you know it was written by Ice Cube, delivered by Eazy-E, and produced by Dr. Dre. This is one of the cornerstones of hip hop. This song meant the whole world because it dictated the life of somebody rollin through the hood trying to get somewhere and trying to be something. Thats what that meant, Boyz-NThe-Hood. We were just boys in the hood trying to get somewhere. It eventually became a movie, and it became the talk of the world. It became everything, and this song right here started it off. This is one of the greatest hip hop songs ever made. Eazy-er Said Than Dunn I love the music, the breakdown, the delivery, and just the way Eazy was flowing on it. This song was hard. I loved everything about it. When it first came on, I was like Man this song

is bangin! Dr. Dre is a pioneer of making music that is so debonair and different. This song right here is so timeless; just the things they were saying, and what they were going through. It kind of depicted my life in so many words. Thats why I was always a fan of this, and will always be a fan of this. Radio Eazy-E made a song for the radio where he had actual people from the radio on there. It was a clean song, so that they could try and get the song played. It became one of his biggest songs. It was dope to me the way that they can take a song and make it specifically for the radio, and change the whole radio game. Thats what hip hop is all about, making a difference, and that song Radio, thats what it did. It broke the whole mold for what a song is supposed to sound like when its on the radio. Eazy-Duz-It. If it wasnt for this record, there would be no Snoop Dogg. There wouldnt be a whole lot of rappers from the West Coast or rappers in general, because our foundation and our start was listening to this record right here. It gave us an understanding that it was cool to be you, represent who you are, where youre from, and to always stay true to what you do. Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, and the whole clique - thank you all for that record. That record meant the world.
