How does a daughter of a late hip-hop legend honor a father’s legacy? Well, if you’re Erin "E.B." Wright, daughter of Eazy-E, maybe playing dad in a biopic is the answer.
In an interview with AllHipHop to help mark the 12th anniversary of her NWA MC’s death, E.B. suggested that she would like to cross genders and play the hard-core gangsta rapper who died of AIDS. "I think it was cool how Hilary Swank played that role as a boy in ‘Boys Don’t Cry,’" said E.B. "That movie was great! I would love to do something like that in my father’s movie."
Considering that E.B. has only starred on MTV’s "My Super Sweet 16," it’s hard to imagine she has Swank-sized chops. But if the acting thing doesn’t pan out, she can still try to cut it as a rapper — yup, E.B. has an album coming out later this year. (Listen to one of her songs here.)
