Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, MC Ren and DJ Yella made up one of the most important rap acts of all time, but if you've seen the new biopic, Straight Outta Compton, you know they all had very strong individual personalities.

There were a lot of mixed feelings surrounding the Tupac hologram at Coachella. While many were impressed by the technological achievement, others were left uncomfortable with the posthumous performance.
Eazy-E founded Ruthless Records with NWA manager Jerry heller in 1986. The two worked together quite closely, and Ellis recently revealed in a radio interview, that he once had to talk him out of killing Death Row records CEO Suge Knight.
