The late Eazy-E’s partner and co-founder of Ruthless Records, Jerry Heller, makes some big claims as he alleges that Eazy wanted to murder Suge Knight.
During a recent interview with Prezident Bejda of The Murder Master Music Show, Jerry Heller said that Eazy-E wanted Suge Knight dead, because E seen Suge as a problem.
Eazy said, “You know this guy Suge Knight?” I said, “Yeah.” He says, “Well, I’m gonna kill him” He said, “This guy is gonna be a problem and I think I should kill him.”
I said, “Let me think this thing through. First of all, we’re doing $10 million a month with six employees. We don’t even have a typewriter in the office. We’re the most successful start-up record company in the history of the music business and you want to kill this guy? That just doesn’t make any sense to me.”
As he continued, Jerry Heller states that he should of let Eazy murder Suge:
You know something? I should have let him kill him. You know? I would have done the world a favor.
Heller says he’s sure E would have killed Suge:
He would have done it for sure by himself. He always rolled by himself and he was fearless. I think that he was going to go do it. I took him seriously.
As he wraps things up, Heller says that he believes Ruthless Records would be an empire right now if he didn’t talk Eazy out of it:
He was right and I was wrong. I shouldn’t have talked him out of it. Ruthless would probably still be around. Dr. Dre and Ice Cube would probably still be with Ruthless. It would have been an empire.
