Hard feelings are brought up any time Jerry Heller is mentioned. Many credit him for the downfall of Eazy-E and NWA. However, there are others who have nothing but love and respect for him and what he has done to preserve Eazy-E’s memory, years after his death.
Eazy-E fell out with Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, prompting them to leave NWA and to also leave Ruthless Records. Those departures forever crippled Eazy-E’s popularity and he soon died. Since then, Jerry Heller has run Ruthless Records and served as a representative, of sorts, to Eazy-E.
TMZ recently caught up with Jerry Heller and he was asked about the Eazy-E biopic, which has made headlines. Eazy-E’s son, Lil’ Eazy-E expressed disappointment over the biopic. Jerry Heller is not a fan of the upcoming biopic and he said Eazy-E was disrespected.
