DJ Yella Was The Only N.W.A. Member At Eazy-E's Funeral

(Radio.com) DJ Yella opens up about his relationship with Eazy-E in a new interview with VladTV, and he revealed that he was the only member of N.W.A. to attend the rapper's funeral.

At the time of Eazy-E's passing in 1995 from complications with AIDs, DJ Yella was involved in the porn industry. DJ Yella explains how the last time the two spoke, Eazy-E told him, "Watch yourself," warning him about the disease's proliferation without coming out and mentioning it specifically.

DJ Yella discusses how even though Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and MC Ren showed up at Eazy-E's hospital bedside, he was the only one who attended the funeral. "Some people probably just can't take it," he said. "I don't know what the reasons are. We never talked about it, even to this day."
