Eazy-E's style was marked by his youthful, high-pitched voice and his lyrics focusing on elements of urban street life, such as: The procurement and use of firearms, the distribution, acquirement & ingestion of illegal narcotics, frequent engagements in enthusiastically unconventional sexual acts and the relationship between members of the local police force and inhabitants of his neighborhood. His son, Lil Eazy-E, is also a rapper.
