Rap act Bone Thugs-N-Harmony fear their late mentor Eazy-E's legacy has been tarnished in the hip-hop community because he died of Aids.

The star passed away in March 1995, just a month after doctors discovered he had the potentially deadly disease.

He will be resurrected in hologram form at the Rock the Bells touring festival later this year (13) to 'perform' alongside Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, but the band believe he is not celebrated in the same way as fellow rappers Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur because of the way he died.

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony rapper Bizzy Bone tells Tmz.com, "Some people seem like they are afraid to commemorate him due to how he died. But (I) never once has - nor will stop - commemorating him (sic)."

Krayzie Bone adds, "They (Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur) died being known as gangsta heroes. Eazy died from a disease... so many look at that differently. The success Eazy left to the rap game is enormous and can't be topped by anyone. We are going to make sure we have the stage full of Eazy love."

Eazy-E gave the group its big break after signing them to his Ruthless Records label in 1993.
