According to

Jerry Heller, the groundbreaking/controversial manager who brought Eazy-E and N.W.A. to fame and helped change the landscape of music is dead.

Heller was embroiled in controversy for decades, right up until his death Friday.  He was accused of fleecing members of N.W.,A.  Some members, including Dr. Dre and Ice Cube, accused him out outright stealing.

7:30 AM PST — Heller died after suffering some sort of medical emergency while driving in Ventura County Friday just before noon.  We’re told he slammed into a mini-van and was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.  It’s unclear if he died from the medical emergency, the collision or both.
