Eazy-E‘s son, Lil Eazy-E, has said that N.W.A fans may get some new music from his late father soon — thanks to the magic of artificial intelligence.

Lil Eazy (real name Eric Darnell Wright Jr.) spoke to TMZ at the unveiling of his father’s street-naming ceremony in Compton earlier this week, where he revealed that AI could be instrumental in helping with the release of the music.

“We’ll see,” he said when asked about the prospect. “We’ll see how that’s coming, you know what I mean? There is, y’know, some hidden tracks out there, so we’ll see how that goes.”

Check out the interview clip below. The revelation starts at the 45-second mark.

On Wednesday (November 22), the city of Compton officially changed the name of Auto Drive South’s 100 block to “Eazy Street” in honor of the Ruthless Records founder.

The N.W.A. icon’s friends and family were present at the ceremony, some of whom even spoke to the crowd.

“I’m so proud of everybody that’s here today,” Eazy-E’s mother Kathie Wright said to those in attendance, holding back tears. “And say I love you all and thanks so much for showing up at this presentation. Thank you very much, the city of Compton.”

President of the Compton Entertainment Chamber of Commerce Alonzo Williams — a former member of the World Class Wreckin’ Cru, which gave its start to Dr. Dre — played an instrumental role in having the stretch named after the gangsta rap pioneer.

“Compton has a lot of history, but nobody knows about it. I figured the most recent history is hip-hop history,” he said, according to KABC. “Being this is the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, I thought it’d be a great idea to approach the City Council, talk about possibly doing this and they loved the idea.”

This isn’t the first time that rumblings about unreleased Eazy-E music have made headlines.

Earlier this year, Rock The Bells caught up with Arnold “Bigg A” White at a listening event for Daz Dillinger and Lil Eazy-E’s joint album, The Legacy.

According to him, Eazy had collaborations in the stash with Slash of Guns N’ Roses.

“There is unreleased music still out there,” Bigg A confirmed. “We know for a fact that he had two or three or four reels in his car when he went to the hospital. Those reels came up missing.

“He had songs with Slash from Guns n’ Roses — he had songs with Guns n’ Roses on those reels. Those reels have been found ’cause they wound up in Canada. That’s a whole other story, but what happened to them [since], I don’t know.”

He continued: “I don’t know if the estate got them, but there is unreleased music, and Yella has some, I know for a fact that there is some unreleased acapella vocals, that he was working on some records with a couple of producers I worked with and last I heard was that they were up in Dre’s studio.”

Eazy-E (real name Eric Lynn Wright) passed away aged 30 on March 26, 1995 from complications related to AIDS-induced pneumonia.

The N.W.A frontman’s estate released Eazy’s only posthumous album, Str8 off tha Streetz of Muthaphukkin Compton, in January 1996, and several years later an EP in 2002 titled Impact of a Legend.
