Eazy E Invited To The White House

We all know the story but do we know it in full?! Eazy-E was invited to the white, but how? One of the innovators of gangsta rap was into the White House with President Bush? Take a look at the video below to see how it all unfolded. I thought about this back when various media outlets expressed outrage over President Obama inviting Common, who was hilariously described as a "gangsta rapper" to the White House a few years ago!

Eazy-E's status as a controversial figure took an unusual turn when he accepted an invitation to a lunch benefitting the Republican Senatorial Inner Circle hosted by President George Bush in March of 1991, a little less than a year after conservatives had deemed his music obscene in Florida.
