N.W.A. manager Jerry Heller dead at 75 

REST IN PEACE …

 

Jerry Heller, the controversial music manager responsible for the initial success of legendary rap squad, N.W.A., is dead.
On Friday, the 75-year-old industry game-changer who co-founded Ruthless Records alongside Eazy-E passed away due to unknown causes.
Born in 1940, the driven talent mastermind dedicated his life to furthering the careers of a number of musical greats including Elton John, Pink Floyd, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, The Who, Black Sabbath, and Ike & Tina Turner.
Heller hit it big when he hooked up with the West Coast reppin “F*** Tha Police” spitting collective in the late 80s but was later accused of stealing COIN by Dr. Dre and Ice Cube after the group broke up in 1991.

Both Hip-Hop heavyweights held Jerry responsible for the disintegration of N.W.A. and Cube even went on to make his ill will towards the white-haired music man known via classic diss track, “No Vaseline.”
At the time of his death, Jerry was locked in a contentious $110 lawsuit against the producers of the “Straight Outta Compton” biopic for the messy way he was portrayed in the film.
RIP BIG BRUH..
