Mixtape: DJ Warrior, DJ Strong, Lil Eazy E – Cali Untouchable Radio 14: Rebirth of Gangsta Rap

411: Hey, his pops is one of the pioneers of gangsta rap, so don’t be mad at Lil Eazy-E for trying to carry on a tradition. The 22-year-old, who had a buzz immediately upon his entrance into the game last year, sounds almost exactly like his legendary father. Originally signed to Virgin, he didn’t agree with how the label was pushing him, so he got out of the contract and started his own production company: N.W.A. Entertainment.

Lil Eazy has since inked a distribution deal with Blackground/Universal, and his debut LP, Prince of Compton, should be out sometime at the top of the year. Lil Eazy just came back from VA to do some tracks with Timbaland, and he has Swizz Beatz, Scott Storch and of course N.W.A alum Dr. Dre listed as future collaborators for the project.

Obviously he’s linking up with the right people for his album, and with his mixtape, he had to follow suit as well. The West Coast tag-team champions of DJs Warrior and Strong helped him put this street CD together.

Joints To Check For:

“This Ain’t a Game” featuring Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. “Basically, the song title speaks for itself,” Lil Eazy explained. “Me and Bone got back on the thuggish-ruggish tip, and we’re sending shots at people who think it’s something to play with. It’s special because Pops introduced [Bone Thugs] to the world. And that’s actually the first song I recorded. Honestly, I had the whole [original] roster on there, but they’re not seeing eye to eye. So I just have the three Bone members on there now [Layzie, Krayzie and Wish]. We got more songs to do for the album. I just did a run with them on the road. It’s all love.”

“Prince of the City.” “That’s the introduction track,” he said. “[It’s] basically my comment to the West Coast, letting you know what I’m about, what I’m introducing to the game. The last verse I say, ‘I’mma rep mine and keep my father’s legacy pushin’.’ ”

“Compton City G’s.” “It’s just bringing back the family, with my pops letting you knew where I came from,” he explained. “He’ll be featured [with a verse] on my album. It’s something special. It scares you because of how similar our voices are. I scare most people when I’m rapping, but [an album is] something you dream for and it’s a blessing to see it all come together.”
