While our in-depth investigation of Eazy-E’s death touched on the notion that many around him believe he was murdered, the son of the late rapper, Yung Eazy, has taken to Instagram with charges that Suge Knight killed his father.

“Eazy did not get sick until after the studio incident with Suge and look how he acknowledged and admits on this interview with Jimmy Kimmel,” he wrote.

For those who haven’t seen the clip that Yung Eazy is referring to, Suge Knight tells Kimmel, “See, technology is so high. So, if you shoot somebody, you go to jail forever. You don’t want to go to jail forever. They have a new thing out. They have this stuff they called — they get blood from somebody with AIDS and they shoot you with it. That’s a slow death. The Eazy-E thing. You know what I mean?”
