Thier record label, Ruthless Records could sell over 110 million records. With the rising popularity, both Eazy-E and Jerry Heller could encash the new market trends.

However, his lavish lifestyle along with his intense desire for women resulted in a sudden dip. After his death, even his Calabasas, California mansion was lost to foreclosure.

Eazy-E net worth – Where he began?
Born on September 7, 1964, Eazy-E (Eric Wright) grew up in Compton, California, a Los Angeles suburb. Coming from a lower middle-class family, his mother worked as a grade school administrator while his father was a postal worker. The area where he grew up was not a normal neighborhood as it was known for its notorious gang activity and crime. So early in life, Eazy E adopted the gangster persona. In one of the interviews, Heller explained “The hood where he grew up was a dangerous place. He was a small guy. ‘Thug’ was a role that was widely understood on the street; it gave you a certain level of protection in the sense that people hesitated to f#ck with you. Likewise, ‘dope dealer’ was a role that accorded you certain privileges and respect.”
