Eazy-E Planned To Kill Suge Knight, According To Jerry Heller

Jerry Heller claims that Eazy-E wanted to kill Suge Knight. "I should have let him kill him," Heller says. "I would have done the world a favor."

According to Ruthless Records co-founder Jerry Heller, Eazy-E wanted to kill Suge Knight. Heller recently revealed this in a radio interview, claiming that Eazy wanted to kill Knight and that he feels he "should have let him" do it.

In an interview with Prezident Bejda of The Murder Master Music Show, Heller explained how this conversation took place. 

"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.'"

Heller then explained that he regrets talking Eazy out of it. 

"You know something? I should have let him kill him. You know? I would have done the world a favor. 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." 

"He was right and I was wrong," he later added. "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."  

The full interview can be heard below.

Heller co-founded Ruthless Records with Eazy-E and managed N.W.A. but was later dissed by former members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre. Eazy's daughter, E.B. Wright, is now working on a documentary about her father's life. Her doc will feature interviews with Eazy's friends and colleagues. Another documentary, Ruthless Memories, is also being worked on. That film will feature an interview with Jerry Heller.

    Eazy-E would gone to jail. Dre, Snoop etc would have been on Ruthless instead, Dre would be nowhere near as rich as he is now, Jerry would be a lot richer. 2pac and Biggie would still be alive because their beefs wouldn't have escalated, there would be no All Eyez on Me album. 2pac wouldn't be as big a star. Who knows where Eminem would be, maybe without an Aftermath and Dre to sign him Eminem would be another underground emcee, and who knows where that would put hip hop today.

    Jerry Heller never screwed those NWA guys over. It was simply just good business. For instance, when a basketball player on his rookie contract, making say $450,000 a year ends up averaging 20 ppg that season, do you call the GM of the team a "scumbag" and accuse him of having his "hand in the cookie jar"? No. It's just the way the business works. As much as I love Dre and Cube, it's their fault for not having a lawyer looks over the contracts before they SIGNED them. Let me reiterate that - before they SIGNED THE CONTRACTS.
  • Who's The Mack?
    Ice Cube left waaaay before Suge was even a thought. 1990-1991- Ice Cube was with the lench mob, making platinum tracks on the East Coast with the Bomb Squad. What in the hell is Jerry talking about?

    how does suge knight have anything to do with ice cube leaving the label? i can maybe understand Dre may not have left ruthless to partner with suge but ice cube's decision to leave had nothing to do with suge knight. and to be honest why would eazy wanna kill him? cuz he was riding with dre and death row was taking off as ruthless was beginning to plummet? thts some hoe shit if thts the case
