    (AllHipHop News) Jerry Heller, the original manager for N.W.A, has died according to sources with AllHipHop.com.

    The business man was widely recognized as the man that helped bring the controversial group to the masses along with Eazy-E.

    The cause of death is not yet known.

    As a manager and business man, Heller began representing mainstream acts like Journey, Marvin Gaye, Joan Armatrading, Van Morrison, War, Average White Band, Ike & Tina Turner, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Otis Redding, The Who, Grand Funk Railroad, Black Sabbath, Humble Pie, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Four Tops, and many more in the 1960’s and 70’s. However, when he started working with Hip-Hop pioneer Eric “Eazy-E” Wright, Heller’s career took on new life.


    He was the co-founder of Ruthless Records with Eazy-E, a label that sold over 100 million records and launched the music careers of Wright, N.W.A, Michel’le,J.J. Fad, The D.O.C.,Above The Law and others.

    At the time of death, Heller was embroiled in a lawsuit over his portrayal in the hit movie “Straight Outta Compton.” Heller felt the movie – produced by former N.W.A members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, defamed him. A large part of the suit was dismissed in court earlier this summer.

    Rapper King T, a West Coast Staple, sent a message on his social media.

    f---, at least he lived a good life though; though Ice Cube and others would disagree, without Heller we wouldn't have N.W.A

    RIP.

    regardless of what shifty s--- may have happened behind the scenes, this man is responsible for so much that happened in hip hop. had he not teamed up with Eazy, who knows what the state of hip hop would be right now.
