Kanye West and The Game resampled Eazy-E’s “Eazy-Duz-It” for their new single “Eazy” on Friday, January 14. They also got the seal of approval. In an interview with TMZ, Ebie Wright spoke about the piece.
“Ironically enough, my life was never easy either,” she said. “But I think it’s a great song. You know what, I’m a huge Kanye fan. I love Game. It’s an incredible record. And it was also produced by my buddy Hit-Boy, so shout out to all my guys.”
In addition to the much-discussed monkey cover art, Ebie also mentioned that the song in which Kanye West dissed ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s new boyfriend Pete Davidson was linked to Eazy-E.
“Honestly, the fact that they sampled ‘Eazy-Duz-It’ – my father literally represents revolutionizing everything,” she explained. “He also represents gangsta rap. What Kanye did and what he said on it, I mean, it don’t get more gangsta than that. I’m with it. I mean, you gotta think about it like, Kanye especially, he knows how to go viral. He’s also very expressive. I feel like, he can’t do no wrong. I think Eazy taught him, and Yeezy taught me.”
She added, “I absolutely think if my father was alive, he would have totally loved to be a part of this record. I mean, it’s incredible. You ca n’t pay more homage than actually using a sample from one of his biggest songs, ‘Eazy-Duz-It.’ And you know, titling the song ‘Eazy.’”
Kanye West is seen calling out comedian / actor Pete Davidson with some nasty words while referring to his new girlfriend, Uncut Gems star Julia Fox.
“God saved me from that crash,” her raps. “Just so I can beat Pete Davidson’s ass (who?)/And my new bitch bad/I know Illuminati mad.”
Also, PETA made a statement about the cover art of “Eazy” for using a flayed monkey.
PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said in a statement. “The photo is reminiscent of the monkeys PETA has found, sometimes heads, sometimes hands, sometimes the whole body, in meat markets around the world,” PETA President Ingrid Newkirk said in a statement. “It makes it clear that when you remove the fur you can’t miss that there’s a person in there, that they are fellow primates, and do not belong to us to abuse for any purpose, not in laboratories, roadside zoos, movies, or meat markets.”
