Tomica Woods Biography

Tomica Woods owns and runs Ruthless Records as its CEO.

She was married to the late rap star Eazy E.

This article has data about her income, net worth, relationships, and other things.

Woods was born in Los Angeles, Calif., on December 7, 1969.

When she was young, her parents split up.

Because of this, she had to split her time between staying with each parent.

She also spent some time in a foster home.

Woods went to West Los Angeles College and got a degree in media studies and business management.

After Woods graduated, he went to work in the music business.

Her work at Tabu Records

She also worked at Tabu Records as the senior assistant to the famous music boss Clarence Avant.

In 1991, when Eazy-E was at the top of his game, she started dating him.

Woods was wary of Eazy-E’s way of life because he was known as a “ladies’ man” and had already had nine children with eight different women.

After putting out famous and highly successful albums like “Straight Outta Compton” and “Niggaz4Life,” Eazy-E was busy on stage.

Woods, who worked as a secretary, was in charge of his record label, “Ruthless Records.”

After working with NWA, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, and Bone Thugs N Harmony, the label was already well known.

She takes over

After Eazy-E died in 1995, Woods took over Ruthless Records.

This was only 12 days after they got married.

Under her watch, the record label was looking for success as usual by adding new singers like Stevie Stone, Atban Klann (who later became The Black Eyed Peas), and Hopsin.

In 2015, Woods helped make the documentary “Straight Outta Compton,” which was about her husband’s rap group, “N.W.A.”

The biopic was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and won several prestigious awards from foreign film groups.

Her husband died of HIV/AIDS

Due to a severe cough, Wood’s spouse visited the Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. But after testing positive for HIV, the artist started receiving care right away.

He passed away suddenly on March 26, 1995, when he was 30 years old.

In his heyday, Eazy-E was a bit of a womanizer, and it’s thought that one of his several girlfriends is where he contracted the virus.

His team has refuted this, claiming that one of his rivals—specifically the Knights of Suge—was responsible for his illness.

Yung Eazy, one of Eazy-E’s offspring, alludes to an interview Suge Knight gave on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2003.

Knight claimed in the interview that by using new technology, it is possible to hurt someone without going to jail.

He also mentioned directly shooting someone with blood that was AIDS-infected and seeing them bleed to death.
