In wake of the nationwide opening of the N.W.A biopic “Straight Outta Compton,” Eazy E’s daughter, E.B. Wright, (Erin Bria), is sharing her thoughts about her father’s portrayal in the film.
Though she was only four when he died, E.B. recalls fond memories of her dad, and she praises Jason Mitchell ‘s performance as Eazy.
“He did a phenomenal job,” she says of Mitchell. “I’m so incredibly proud. All my life I’ve been hearing these stories. Jason is everything I imagined [my father] to be … I really felt like I was watching him on the screen.”
NBCNews reports that E.B.’s resemblance to her father is so strong that “when “Rock the Bells” [music festival] wanted to create a hologram of my dad, they used my face,” E.B.says.
In a recent interview with City Pages, E.B. said Dr. Dre, Ice Cube and director F. Gary Gray did a “good job” focusing on the ‘brotherhood’ of the band. However, in a series of tweets posted over the weekend, she revealed that a lot of her father’s story isn’t mentioned in the movie.
