Erin Bria Wright Bio (Age)
Erin Bria Wright was born on 16 July 1991 in Compton, California. She is one of the nine children of the late rapper Eazy E. Erin was raised by her mother after the controversial death of her father in 1995 at the age of 4 years. Details of her early life and education are not known, however, as she grew up in the home of a rap artist and a music manager exposed her to music at an early age. She grew up around artists such as Avril Lavigne and Britney Spears and around DJ Quik and Snoop Dogg. Erin became interested in acting and took acting classes at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Anyone would think that her musical talent came from her father, but the young star passes the credits on to her mother instead. Her first musical project, We Want E.B., resembles her father’s We Want Eazy and was launched when she was 19 years old, followed by her debut single What I Wanna Do, which was released in December 2012. Girl Crush, Can’t Believe It and Dear Daddy are among her other singles.
Erin has more feathers on her cap than just music. She is an actress and made her television debut on MTV’s My Super 16 in 2007, and has also appeared on MTV’s Rants and Raves, The Monday Dish and the reality series My Sweet 16 Presents: Banished. As an entrepreneur, she launched her own clothing website Wewanteb.com, has her own hat line, and also produces shirts.
The outspoken singer felt that many facts about her father’s life were left out in the biographical film “Straight Outta Campton”. She set about producing a documentary film called A Ruthless Scandal: No more lies to fill the void. To tell the story in the right way, her mother, brother, and older sister became part of the production process.

Family (Mother, Father)
Erin was born as the daughter of West Coast rappers and producers Eazy-E and Tracy Jernigan. Her father, born on September 7, 1964, as Eric Lynn Wright, is best known as a member of the late 1980s gangsta rap group N.W.A., whose members include Ice Cube and Dr. Dre.
After dropping out of high school, he was introduced to drug dealing with his cousin and did this to make a living. He was later to become a rapper, after leaving the drug business and founding Ruthless Records with Jerry Heller. Eazy-E earned the title “Godfather of Gangsta Rap” because he pioneered the rap music genre.
The legendary rapper died on 26 March 1995 from the complications of AIDS. Jason Mitchell portrayed him in the 2015 film Straight Outta Compton, which deals with the rise and fall of the group N.W.A. and its members. The film, which was dedicated to his memory and directed by F. Gary Gray, was nominated for an academic award for the original screenplay. He had affairs with various women which resulted in many children but he married Tomica Woods-Wright a few weeks before his death.
Her mother, Jernigan, was a music manager. Among the managers, she managed was DJ Uneek, who ended up doing much of the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony music. Jernigan worked with DJ Quik and Lil’ 1/2 Dead and discovered Seven Aurelius. She also worked with many writers and producers, including producer Detail, who shot Beyonce’s Drunk In Love. She had been with Eazy-E since 1988, but they were separated a year before his death.
Erin has nine siblings: Lil Eazy-E, Daijah, Dominick, Baby Eazy-E, David, Elijah, Raven, and Marquise. Most of them are in show business, with Lil Eazy-E, Yung Eazy, and Baby Eazy-E taking after their father in the rap scene. Their father was a doting parent who loves his children despite the fact that they have different mothers and enjoy spending time with them. Erin has a fuzzy memory of her father, but remembers him as warm, funny, playful, and had enjoyed the sillier side of his personality.
