Ice Cube Addresses Rumor That Suge Knight Killed Eazy-E

Ice Cube shot down the conspiracy theory that Suge Knight injected Eazy-E with the AIDS that killed him in 1995. The legendary N.W.A. rapper discussed the idea during an appearance on Logan Paul’s Impaulsive podcast. Co-host Mike Majlak was the one to bring up the theory.

“How would [Suge] do that?” Cube asked. “And Eazy would never tell anybody that?” Majlak answered: “No, I mean, Eazy didn’t even know. ‘Cause you just poke somebody, like, and they don’t even know. Maybe they were at a club or some shit.”

Cube didn’t back down on his skepticism: “Nah, I think if somebody poke you with one of them goddamn needles, you know. You know. I mean, I’m just saying… just say this happened, Eazy would tell somebody, ‘This muthafucka poked me with some shit!’ Now, if he was unconscious and — I don’t know. It’s like… I don’t know. It just sounds… um… if Eazy would have known he got poked, he would’ve said something. If he didn’t know he got poked, then the conspiracy lives on.”

When asked whether he would put it past Knight to do something so despicable, he did admit, “I don’t put shit past nobody.” Elsewhere in the interview, Cube discusses Kevin Hart owing him money, Kendrick Lamar carrying West Coast hip-hop, the Lakers’ chances to win another NBA championship with LeBron James, 2Pac & Biggie’s impact on hip-hop, and more.

Ice Cube On The Death Of Eazy-E

Eazy-E passed away at just 31 years old on March 26, 1995, due to AIDS-induced pneumonia. He had been hospitalized weeks earlier with a violent cough that resulted in his diagnosis. Eazy-E only announced his illness to the public days before his death.
