Tha Muthaphukkin' Real Eazy

Since we're coming up on the 15-year anniversary(!) of Eazy-E's passing, I thought it high time to share one of the rarer (and finest) recordings of his career. Culled from the excellent Eazy-Duz-It, this obscure cassette single contained two fantastic remixes of "We Want Eazy" and "Still Talkin'". Extra verses and better beats helped these two tracks easily surpass their album originals. I'm sure they're on one of his many posthumous compilation CDs but at the time twenty years ago (and in my present-day music collection) they were cassette-only so enjoy this archaic stuff from their original magnetic tape sound recording - hiss included.

UPDATE 9.6.13: Fuck that muddy tape hiss, I've just relinked below to a great, clean, crisp copy - enjoy!
