BG Knocc Out: Story Behind Eazy-E’s Dre Diss Compton City G’s
“Real Muthaphuckkin G’s” rapper B.G. Knocc Out sat down with us here at VladTV recently and discussed how he got in the rap game, his relationship with Eazy-E, and why he didn’t accept a deal with one of the more major record labels of the time. “They knew we was about business,” B.G. says regarding a past altercation. “If you know anything about Compton, LA, like, the hood I come from, ” he says, “not too many people want it with us.”
After detailing his career beginnings, B.G. Knocc Out takes us back to the time he first met Eazy-E during the recording of “Real Compton City G’s.” “I was in awe,” he remembers. “‘Cause here is a person who I’ve admired since I was a little kid, [and] now I’m sitting right here with him. So I was like, kinda starstruck, I guess.” B.G. had just become a senior in high school when the now-legendary track was released, and with the fame overcoming him he ultimately felt the need to drop out of high school simply because he “wasn’t used to that.” “Once the video came out, my life changed,” says B.G.
B.G. and his brother Dresta became engulfed in the beef between Eazy, Dr, Dre and Suge Knight, which only got worse as time progressed. After a few run-ins and near-fights, Suge eventually inquired about signing B.G. to Death Row, something Knocc Out didn’t even consider due to his loyalty to Eazy-E. “He wanted to f*** with Eazy because one of the conditions was he wanted us to diss Eazy, and I wasn’t gon’ never do that,” he reveals.
