#32. Eazy-E (Rap Pages, 1995)


Issue: August 1995
Art Direction: Brent Rollins
Photography: B+ (Brian Cross)

After Eazy E's passing Rap Pages transformed their cover into a heartfelt memorial to the West Coast's most beloved bad boy. Like the cover itself, the issue was a devotedly patchwork tribute to the fallen rapper, including a reprint of his first solo interview, an in-depth Q&A with his NWA partner DJ Yella, and a feature on AIDS fundraising in minority communities. Fittingly, the photographer B+ also shot the cover for Eazy's last album before passing, It's On (Dr. Dre) 187um Killa.
