We’re been hearing rumors all day about this but didn’t want to say anything until it was confirmed. It is in fact true that Jerry Heller, the original manager of Eazy-E & N.W.A. passed away earlier today. The cause of death is yet to be known.

Let’s be clear, Jerry Heller has been in the entertainment business of over 50 years and managed a number of including the likes of Tina Turner and The Who in the 1960s and 70s. However, it was a chance meeting in the mid 1980s with an unknown rapper by the name of Eazy-E that would change his life forever. You can say what you want about Jerry Heller (and trust, there is plenty of different opinions out there), there would be no N.W.A., Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, CubeVision Pictures, Beats By Dre, Ruthless Records, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Eminem, Death Row Records, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, G-Unit Records, Power (the TV Show) or Kendrick Lamar if it wasn’t for Jerry Heller and what he did or didn’t do. The thing about is he died with such a bad reputation that he will never be credited for all of these things. #RIPJerryHeller
