R.I.P Easy E

I will never forget March 26th 1995 I had just recently celebrated my fourteenth birthday I was in seventh grade life was good. Well life was not good for everyone else, rap artist Easy E died from aids that day. We as the public only learned a  month prior that Eazy had full blown aids, his death was met with sadness, shock and confusion. Eazy is best known for being the founder of controversial group N.W.A who was popular in the late 80's and early nineties and the he became the founder of Ruthless and discovered the group Bone thugs -n- Harmony (I love those guys). With that being said Eazy E still had a impact on hip hop music and the culture. It has been eighteen years since his passing and we still ignore the affects of HIV/AIDS in the community. I thought that after his death, things were going to change and it hasn't still a lot of ignorance and carelessness is still happening. I'm not trying to preach about using protection and being smart because that should already be a given. What I will use this for is to say we definitely need to bring back the dialogue back.  Eazy E last words to his fans: "I'm not looking to blame anyone except myself. I have learned in the last week that this thing is real, and it doesn't discriminate, It affects everyone, "It's YOUR real time and YOUR real life".
