Here is the Car Collection of Legendary West Coast Rapper Easy-E

Easy-E was considered as a pioneer and a revolutionary as he added a different dimension to his music which as a result defined the Gangsta Rap genre. He was called the Godfather of Gangsta rap and later became the theme of the movie Straight out of Compton which portrayed the journey of his group. Easy-E had a larger-than-life personality despite his small stature and had a brief but extremely eventful career. The Compton-born rapper was a high school dropout and allegedly got into selling drugs to survive, but his life turned around when his cousin was murdered and he decided to put all his drug money into making something legit. The West Coast rapper was an avid automobile fan who bought his first car at a very young age long before his success as a musician. All his videos featured a variety of pimped-out rides which was a huge part of the culture back then. His albums Straight out of Compton and Eazy-Duz-It in total sold over 5.5 million copies and according to his son Eazy-E had an estimated worth of around $ 50 Million at the time of his death. He had a small but extremely interesting collection of vehicles that are enumerated below

4. Suzuki Samurai

First up on his list is the Suzuki Samurai, which he used in his videos. The vehicle was upgraded with a whole lot of chrome and accents. The topless SUV was quite trending at that time and the mighty Suzuki Samurai was a truly iconic car in the early ’90s due to its extreme ruggedness and off-road capabilities.


The vehicle had a tendency to roll over however it still managed to attract the attention of the buyers which is quite clear considering that over 1,50,000 units were sold in the USA in the first three years. The vehicle at that time had an estimated price of $8,299.

The Suzuki Samurai was powered by a 1.3L naturally aspirated Inline 4 engine that generated 66 hp of power and 76 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated with a five-speed manual transmission and power reaches the wheels through the selectable transfer case. The vehicle was pretty sluggish in gaining speed as it took 16.9 seconds to reach from 0 to 60 MPH and had a top speed of 65 MPH. But don't let these power figures fool you this small SUV broke the record of a Jeep Wrangler as it climbed to a height of 21,962 feet and is considered one of the most capable off-roaders in the high altitude terrain in the entire world.

3. 1963 Chevrolet Impala

The 1963 Chevrolet Impala was owned by Eazy-E long before he became famous and in his songs he has mentioned it as 64 which led many people to believe that his Impala was from 1964, however, recently his daughter clarified that his Impala was actually a 1963 model and we have many pictures and videos of his car since this car was extensively used by the rapper in the music videos.

The Impala was modified as a lowrider and was extremely desirable back in the day. The original cost of a 1963 Chevy Impala was around $3200 but the price of these vehicles has skyrocketed today and in the current market can go up to $ 328,00 for the Z11 model.

The Chevrolet Impala came with a lot of engine options and the exact specification of Eazy-E’s Impala is exactly not known to us but we can predict that his 63 Chevy might be powered by a 5.4L naturally aspirated V8 engine which used to generate 300 hp of power and 360 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a three-speed manual gearbox and the vehicle managed to reach from 0 to 60 MPH in 7.8 seconds. The vehicle is also supposed to have a top speed of 155 MPH.

2. 1991 BMW 850 CSI 

This is one of his favorite cars with which multiple photographs exist on the internet. The car was a symbol of luxury and success back in the day and he bought his white BMW 850 CSI in 1991, after the success of the second album. The bimmer was his favorite car as it was one of the most expensive vehicles of that time.


Easy-E loved the finer things in life and this bimmer was a depiction of that considering the vehicle used to cost $ 86,540 back in 1991. The 1991 BMW 850i is an extremely good-looking vehicle to date and is quite desirable among car collectors.

The vehicle was quite futuristic in its time as it featured a 5.0L naturally aspirated V12 engine that generated 296 hp of power and 332 lb-ft of torque. The engine was mated with a six-speed manual transmission and it allowed the vehicle to reach from 0 to 60 MPH in just 6.3 seconds and had a top speed limited to 155 MPH. The outstanding feature of this car was however the handling and the ride comfort that it provided. It is considered one of the best touring vehicles of all time due to its relatively softer suspension setup.

1. 1995 Mercedes S600 V12

This is one of his last rides and the most futuristic one. The vehicle is completely feature-loaded with some top-of-the-line specs like heated leather seats and power-adjustable lumbar support. The Mercedes had top-notch safety systems and a very powerful engine.


The NVH levels inside the cabin were fantastic and there was plenty of space on offer in which Eazy-E used to take a couple of kids from the block for rides. The vehicle was one of the costliest vehicles of that time with a price tag of $ 130,000.

The Iconic white Mercedes S 600 coupe featured a 6.0L V12 engine that generated a whooping 389 hp of power and 420 lb-ft of torque. The engine was mated with a four-speed automatic gearbox that propelled the vehicle from 0 to 60 MPH in just 6.3 seconds. The vehicle had a top speed limited to 155 mph. The Merc featured fantastic ride quality due to the air suspension setup. It was a magnificent piece of engineering.
