Eazy E’s daughter ReeMarkable is honoring her father’s birthday with a photoshoot where she reimagines many his iconic photographs. The photographs which are being released Today, have been inspired by the infamous Hilton photo shot by photographer Ricky Powell in 1993, two years before his death. Ricky Powell had an agreement in place to interview the legendary Compton rapper, on serious grounds. But Eazy greeted him with open arms, fering him a rolled blunt as he entered the door, and so the legendary session was born.
ReeMarkable is following her father’s footsteps, not only by adopting his trademark look, but in pursuing a career as a character. As legend has it, Eazy-E’s career as rapper almost never happened, but such is faith. ReeMarkable has deliberately chosen to shadow her father’s likeness; he would have been 54 years old today, a few shades grayer than the rest his N.W.A comrades.
ReeMarkable is quoted as saying, “I’m ready to carry the torch my daddy left behind for me! This is for you daddy, Happy Birthday!” She goes into greater detail on Instagram in a long-winded post dedicated to her dad, which includes the photo set in its entirety (up above).
Check out her duet with Coco Vango titled “Bonnie & Clyde.”
Happy 54th, Eric “Eazy-E” Wright.
