Yeah I read the interview when it first dropped. I don't believe that he didn't know Eazy-e was into the devil like that. I feel that he was covering for him. He's been around for years I know he had to know what was up even though they tried to play it off after they exposed him to it. Like I said Bizzy Bone already confirmed that E was into it, that Bone was into it in part because of E and that E used to call himself the devil's son in law. He messes for even mentioning it in the first place. It just confirms what has already been put out there in the public.
He also covered up for dre here-
2pac and Jewell already confirmed that Dre was into men. Either Bizzy, Pac and Jewell are lying or it could be the doc who was lying. I'll let you decide. Also it is widely accepted by Hip Hop fans that Diddy is bi due to various information that has come out.
-- I respect everyone's perspective and opinion, yet I dont believe the devil-worship theory to a "T"....Honestly, those times of hip-hop allowed for ALOT of "Horrorcore" rap. Natas (Satan spelled backwards), Esham, Flatlinerz, The Gravediggaz, Brotha Lynch Hung were some of the early "pioneers" of that (supposed) sub-genre of Rap music. Even before Bone Thugs blew up, they were already a.ssociating themselves with things like "Faces of death" (as an album title.) The more against the grain (and near evil you were) the harder your image came across.
The imagery and ideas of being affiliated with (supposed) evil and the devil were moderate sub-plots to how "ill" ,"wild", or "crazy" an MC or group could be--- especially from an underground perspective. It was all a part of the smoke and mirrors. (n*ggas LOVED 3-6 Mafia, especially in the early days right? The irony that Juicy J's father is a PREACHER and condoned his sons actions)
I remember buying the "Flatlinerz" album "U.S.A.- Under Satan's Authority" back around 1994-- I wasnt no devil worshipper, but around those times, it was slightly "hip" or "daring" to listen to cats that were so against the grain. I must admit, the album was boo boo (other than the lead single "Live Evil". I remember reading how the leader of the group was Russell Simmons nephew and he had to beg and plead to get him to put money behind the group because Russell didnt believe in the nonsense-- needless to say, he lost alot of money and the rest is told in stories like this...
I can only think that Eazy was a master manipulator, and he got alot of game from Jerry Heller. Remember, he was managing people like Marvin Gaye before he started fu*kin with Eazy and the whole idea of Rap. If he worshipped any "real" devil...I would say it was Heller. (sh*t look at the irony of the last name)
