Following the death of former NWA manager Jerry Heller, his attorney Mickey Shapiro told TMZ that he blames Heller’s passing on stress caused by his portrayal in the 2015 film Straight Outta Compton. Shapiro stated that Heller barely slept since the movie was released last year, and that he was heartbroken about the whole ordeal. The attorney also said that “Jerry Heller would be alive today if it not for that movie”. When asked about his former manager’s death in a recent interview, Ice Cube was indifferent, stating that he wasn’t “popping champagne”, but that he also wasn’t “shedding a tear” over Jerry Heller.
