Ex-NWA Manager

Eazy-E DISRESPECTED

The bad blood still runs deep ... Ex-N.W.A manager Jerry Heller tells TMZ it was a slap in the face to Eazy-E to shut his son out of the audition process for the upcoming movie.

Jerry was leaving Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood Saturday night ... when he acknowledged the bad blood between Dre and Eazy and suggested it might have something to do with the fact that Lil Eazy was not even allowed to audition to play his dad in the flick.

Jerry clearly took sides on who was more important to the group -- Dre or Eazy.

The bad blood went to Eazy's death bed. Everybody played nice at the last minute but the beef was dropped.

Two things: "disrespected" is not proper grammar - it is ghetto slang. Look it up. Second, TMZ, why are you featuring all of this hip-hop news or arrests, etc.

From 1987 to 1991 Easy was definitely NWA's front man. But let's be real, Ice Cube and Dr. Dre are infinitely more important to the genre of Hip-Hip as a whole than E will ever be.

Lol they could at least let him audition but didn't have to choose him. He's to big not old in height but size. Wrong build.

First off If Easy E's Son wanted to audition that bad he could have went to the open call audition in Compton.

Second off as a filmmaker you can not make everybody
happy all you can do is the best movie.

Fyi Lil Eazy E's Mom Is a producer on the film so she obviously could have got him an audition.

Dre should have casted his son for the role.
None of the confirmed look like NWA except Doughboy and that is a major stretch. More Rappers taking actors roles:/ TSK TSK

What kind of credentials does his son have? It's a movie for profit not a charity project. If the son has a good resume the frustration would be warranted but I don't know any one who's heard of the kid before.

Even if you think eazy e's son has no type of credentials or he doesn't know anything about his father because he was a baby when his father past doesn't mean ****. He should still have a fair chance just like anyone else to play his fathers role. Also just because he was small when his dad past does not mean he doesn't know anything about him. He probably knows more than the "actors" trying out for his role
