Recently I highlighted a clearly embellished Wikipedia entry about Eric B. The thing is, I was pretty sure that at least some of it was based on reality (‘vehicular menagerie’ excepted). Part of that stemmed from Dr. Butcher‘s comments:
Is Eric still involved in music?
Eric is always involved with something! [chuckles] Eric is a dude that finds a way to get money somehow, man. I mean when people thought he wasn’t involved, he was livin’ in penthouses in Manhattan, right on Broadway. Quietly, behind the scenes on an executive level at record companies and stuff. After their stint in the game, I guess he just decided to take a back seat as far as not wanting to be in the public eye. He’s not somebody who wants to have his face out there, run around, braggin’, ‘Oh, I’m Eric B!’ He’s like a quiet type of guy. That’s why we don’t see him or hear from him. He’s still doin’ his thing though.
Clearly this required further investigation, however there was nothing to be found on his MTV Cribs appearance or his business ventures online. When I interviewed Freddie Foxxx last week, however, I made sure to ask him about Eric, and he confirmed that he does actually own a large chain of restaurants! Now all I have to do is prove his meeting with George Dubya and the ‘staff of 14 grounds keepers, chefs, maids, and security’ and we can wrap this up.
