"Eazy-Duz-It" is a song by West Coast rapper Eazy-E. It was released as a lead single from the album of the same name. It features the song "Radio" as a b-side. The b-side of the cassette single also contained the original version of the song Compton's N The House which only appears on the cassette single version, the vinyl single has a radio edit of Eazy-Duz-It instead of Compton's N The House. There is a remix version of Compton's N The House that appears on N.W.A.'s Straight Outta Compton album, but the original can only be found on the cassette single and has never been released elsewhere.

"Eazy-Duz-It" was produced by Dr. Dre with co-production by DJ Yella, with Eazy-E's production debut.

Slim Thug sampled the line "...thug from around the way..." to make the song "Thug" from his Boss of All Bosses album. Also the song's line was sampled by both Memphis duo Three 6 Mafia DJ Paul and Juicy J in "Ridin' Spinners", and Memphis rapper Yo Gotti on his song "Thug From Around The Way".

Maryland rapper Logic also sampled the song's intro in the creation of the instrumental for the song "Under Pressure". The intro has been cut short and looped to create the instrumental of Logic's famous song.
