Jerry Heller released his tell all Ruthless: A Memoir in August 2006. A first-hand account of his life as a “super-agent” responsible for booking colossal tours for the likes of Elton John, Pink Floyd, Marvin Gaye, The Guess Who, Journey and many others. Then as the force behind Eric “Eazy-E” Wright, Ruthless Records, N.W.A and the West Coast Gangster Rap revolution.
In the exclusive 1996 interview, Yella laid out what made N.W.A special, how he handled his business with Ruthless Records, and reaffirmed his contributions to the group.
There are three sides to every story. Your side. My side. And the truth. In 1996, long-time friends Ice Cube and Cypress Hill went to war for an entire year.
In 2001 Ice Cube was fourteen films into his celluloid career and on the verge of crossing over to mainstream acceptance with the upcoming release of the first film in the BarberShop series. In this exclusive interview from inside his trailer on the set of the final installment of the Friday series, Friday After Next, he reflected on his music career prior to the scheduled release of his Greatest Hits album on December 4, 2001.
