The Samples Behind Eazy-E’s ‘Eazy-Duz-It’


Power 106 has released a new episode of Wax Only to honor the 22nd anniversary of Eazy-E‘s death. The episode looks at the samples behind the rapper’s solo debut album, Eazy-Duz-It.

Released in 1988, “Eazy-Duz-It” peaked at No. 41 on the Billboard 200 that year and was certified double platinum in 1992. It re-entered the chart at No. 32 in 2015 following the debut of the N.W.A. biopic film, Straight Outta Compton.

The album, which was produced by Dr. Dre and DJ Yella, features samples from artists like The Temptations, Bootsy Collins, The Bar-Kays, and The Sugarhill Gang.

Rising DJ/producer Dr. Fresch has teamed up with Eazy-E’s son for a g-house-influenced banger called “Gangsta Gangsta.” The song features “Baby Eazy-E” rapping parts of his father’s verse from N.W.A.’s 1988 single of the same title.
However, instead of the usual g-house BPM (118 to 124), Fresch wrote on SoundCloud that he slowed the tempo to 105 to “preserve the integrity” of Baby Eazy-E’s vocals. He described the resulting instrumental as “a crossbreed between slowed-down g-house and indie electro.”
