After N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton took box offices by storm this past weekend, an old clip of former Death Row Records honcho Suge Knight joking about rapper Easy-E’s death from AIDS is making the rounds.
Complex dug up the video, where Knight takes a below the belt dig at the MC during his 2003 appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” which debuted that same year on ABC. Mid-interview, the hip hop heavyweight jokes about Jimmy’s ensemble, which included a bulletproof vest.
“Technology is so high. If you shoot somebody, you go to jail forever. You don’t want to go to jail forever…They have a new thing out,” Suge explained. “They have this stuff they called…they get blood from somebody with AIDS and they shoot you with it. That’s [a] slow death. The Eazy-E thing, you know what I mean?”
His unsettling joke prompted a roar of groans from the crowd, leaving the host in an awkward spot to pick back up on the interview.
