In our exclusive clip featuring Arabian Prince, the former NWA member recalls his meeting with Tomica Wright over royalty disputes, and one of the last times he saw Eazy-E before the rap star died of AIDs. “I went to Yella’s birthday party and I remember seeing Eazy right before he went into the hospital. He looked fine to me,” Arabian Prince remembers with a somewhat quizzical look. “It seemed weird to me.”
When asked about Eazy’s widow, Tomica, Arabian Prince brought up a conference they had once she took over Ruthless Records. The end result was a lawsuit that carried on for years after him and other artists on the Ruthless roster – including J.J. Fad – stopped receiving royalty checks. And according to him, “it’s still not right.” “Just be fair to people,” he expressed to DJ Vlad in regards to Tomica. “If you weren’t there – yeah I know you own the company now, but you weren’t there – take care of the people that keep you paid. That’s all you gotta do. There’s enough money out there for everybody.”
