Ice Cube is addressing the decades-old conspiracy theory accusing Suge Knight of injecting the late rapper Eazy E with an HIV needle.
Since Eazy’s death in 1995 from AIDS, there has been speculation as to how the then-31-year-old rapper contracted the virus during the height of his career. Suge Knight put the attention on himself back in 2003 when he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! following his release from jail and made a disturbing reference to Eazy’s AIDS-related death, via Highsnobiety.
“See, technology is so high. So, if you shoot somebody, you go to jail forever. You don’t want to go to jail forever,” Suge said at the time.
