Eazy E “We Want Eazy” (1988)

“We Want Eazy” is the second single by Eazy-E, from his 1988 debut album, Eazy-Duz-It.

The song features fellow N.W.A members Dr. Dre and MC Ren and was produced by Dr. Dre and DJ Yella.

The music video for “We Want Eazy”, directed by J. Kevin Swain, was released in 1988. It begins with Eazy being chased by a LAPD officer and dropping his signature black baseball cap along the way. Eventually he is arrested and jailed, just hours before he is to perform at a concert. With the help of his cellmates (including Ice Cube (who manages to appear in the crowd as well) and MC Krazy Dee), Eazy is able to perform via a giant screen closed-circuit connection “live from the Compton jail”, while Dr. Dre and MC Ren share the role of hype man on stage. Near the end of the video, Eazy breaks out of his cell and through the screen, and joins his bandmates on stage for the concert’s finale.

In exchange for the use of the sample, Bootsy Collins makes a cameo appearance with Eazy-E at the video’s conclusion. (Wikipedia)
