He first appeared in the hip hop scene with Daz Dillinger, during which time an independent album release was expected. However, as no contract was actually signed, this led to an eventual feud between the two rappers. Lil Eazy-E has performed duets with rappers such as Static Major, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Timbaland and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.
On September 13, 2012, it was reported that Lil Eazy-E was reportedly in contract negotiations with Death Row Records. Previously signed to Virgin Records in the mid-2000s, the new deal with Hoopla Worldwide would controversially be distributed through Death Row Records. The story was then publicly announced to have been misquoted stating he was only in talks with Hoopla records to record an LP, which would be distributed through Wide Awake Entertainment, the company which bought Death Row Records. Due to the story that was taken out of context, the artist backed off from the deal and stated he is and always will be "Ruthless Records Inc. For Life" Due to poor management from his A&R and management team, and being shelved by the labels he was signed to because of it, Lil Eazy E announced in the summer of 2012 that he would be releasing all ties with his past management team and the Kings of L.A. label he had been in a partnership with. He has since become his own manager and CEO of the production company NWA Entertainment. He also manages a group called Compton MoneyGang which consists of his brother, Derrek "E3" Wright, and his cousins, nephews of Eazy-E.
