    I think Kats got the term Godfather twisted calling Eazy the Godfather of Gangsta Rap does not mean he birthed it rather he took the honor to care for it and supported it to grow and become strong which he did...

    god·fa·ther
    ˈgädˌfäT͟Hər/Submit
    noun
    1.
    a male godparent.
    2.
    a man who is influential in a movement or organization, through providing support for it or through playing a leading or innovatory part in it.
    "the godfather of alternative comedy"

    And there you go, the definition laid it all out for y'all to see, Etymology of words need to be studied, now you know why the white man get over you because y'all don't understand the science and definitions of words.

    Name one Gangsta Rapper or emcee who was more influential in the movement of gangsta rap then Eazy E.

    He is the Godfather of Gangsta Rap

    After the facts I have laid out it's not possible. There is only one God father. Eazy being influenced by the likes of Schooly D, Ice-T and other gangster rappers or rappers who rapped about gangster themes disqualifies Eazy from such a slot.

    Eazy and NWA were the first to have commercial success let's stop pretending there is more to this when it isn't.

    And I agree with you brethren I didn't only say that Eazy E is the only godfather of gangsta rap.

    Schooly D is the first gangsta rapper that the hip hop world heard on wax nationally. So he's the first gangsta rapper, even Ice T said that.

    Schooly D didn't carry that flag he went the afrocentric route.

    Just Ice was a 5%er

    Ice T started out Punk Rock Rap Zulu Nation, did gangsta rap and went back to heavy metal and punk

    Eazy E came in 86 as a real gangsta, rapped about it, created one of the greatest hip hop group of all times, brought the eyes to Compton and told them about the hell they lived

    And repped gangsta rap, when everybody went the afro centric route, Eazy E was still carrying the flag. Eazy E was given the title of it, nobody complained or deny it.

    No Cube, Dre, Ice T.

    We All in The Same Gang, Eazy E still in the video being a Gangsta.

    Nobody did more for gangsta rap genre than Eazy E that's a fact he had the whole world wearing Locs, Raiders Gear which haven't seen since Run DMC having the world wearing Addias

    The greatest thing Easy did was bankroll talent. He wasn't good at it himself and left to his own devices he failed. His death was only a boost. Look at most rappers that die they are rocketed to another status. You can call it what you want but there are others the people will give that title too.

    Eazy E status is secured in hip hop.

    His presence felt, hip hop changed forever, because of what he done.

    If it wasn't for Eazy, No NWA, Bone Thugs, Death Row Records, Aftermath Records, Shady Records, No Ice Cube, No West Side Connection, Damn NWA family tree is to Damn big.

    There's a Movie on NWA what more do you want

    I don't care who you feel should have the title. But Eazy took the title and no one took it from him. His alias is the godfather of gangsta rap / thread

    His status is secured but at times it is enlarged beyond truth. Jaz doesn't get anything for helping Jay-Z. All of these artist were rapping before Easy and most flourished without him. He had no part of Aftermath unless you attribute every decision Dre & Cube and others make on Easy. That's where I think it is a reach. I think he put together one of the best crews in rap. I equate him to Jerry Reinsdorf, Edward DeBartolo, or Jerry West

    Again if it wasn't for Eazy, Dre would of been still be Doing World Class Wrecking Cru r&b, and doing DJ parties in the hood or at Clubs and making mixtapes beat for Mixmaster Spade.

    Dre all about gave up on the music industry when Eazy E put that battery in his back. Dre became a home body, Eazy told him to come with him and give it another chance the rest is history.

    So give respect where respect is do, Dr. Dre is my favorite producer of all times, Cube my personal favorite emcee, NWA my favorite group.

    But it was Eazy that sold them his dream, Ice Cube was about to move back out of California after CIA, Eazy pulled him in.

    So what I'm saying if it wasn't for Eazy making moves pulling everybody together, hip hop would of been different today, No aftermath, death row etc...

    Easy is a legend, but he is not the "Godfather: of Gansta Rap. That moniker goes to Schoolly D. Ice T would get that before Eazy.

    ^ Yup. Or even KRS.

    He may not be the father, uncle or grandpa... But I think he deserves the Godfather title, he took the child that was gangsta rap and exposed it to a world it's immediate family sheltered it from

    He is the first gangsta rapper i ever heard that really was talking gangsta shit on records. Ice t talked about the pitfalls of the life but he wasnt talking bout killing bitches, cops & niggas on wax. I remember hearing schooly d but he wasnt as extreme as eazy. Eazy is the god father for the most part because he was the first nigga the world heard talking gangsta shit. Eazy does it is a gangsta rap classic very unique and the first of its kind. His voice his look the authenticity he is the god father period.
