Autopsy: The Last Hours of…
On March 26, 1995 the music world was shocked by the sudden death of ‘Godfather of Gangster Rap,’ Eric ‘Eazy-E’ Wright. A true underdog, Eazy grew up on the crime-ridden streets of Compton, and forged an early career selling crack cocaine. But the constant threats of imprisonment and gang violence persuaded him to put his business skills towards a more legitimate enterprise – rap music. Setting up Ruthless Records with money from drug-dealing, Eazy and his friends developed a new, West Coast hip-hop sound that reflected the harsh realities of life in the ‘hood. Initially just a manager, Eazy was encouraged to get behind the microphone – where he found fame and fortune as a solo rapper and a key member of controversial group N.W.A. But his career came to an abrupt end when he was diagnosed with HIV at the age of 30 – and a month later he was dead. In the months and years that followed, questions over his diagnosis and conspiracy theories about how he died have cast a shadow of doubt over his final weeks. So what happened? World renowned forensic pathologist, Dr. Michael Hunter needs to analyze every detail to get to the truth of how Eazy-E died.
