Former CEO of Death Row Records, Suge Knight who was with Tupac Shakur on the night that he was killed in Las Vegas on September 7, 1996, has claimed that he was the real target of the drive-by shooting that killed Pac, and that his ex-wife Sharitha and former Death Row Records security chief Reggie Wright Jr. were behind it reports The Daily Mail.
Suge Knight continues to have health problems while locked in a Los Angeles jail.
A prolific jailhouse informant who has worked inside county jails here said that he was ordered by a Los Angeles County sheriff to create false testimony surrounding rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight.
Lawyers who processed the bankruptcy case for Death Row Records should be all smiles after raking in $8.3 million for their work, but the artists who made the label a fortune walked away with little or nothing.
On March 20th, inside the high-security wing of Los Angeles’ Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center, the man once called “the most feared man in hip-hop” is looking more like the 50-year-old with chronic health issues that he is. Suge Knight sits in shackles, wearing an orange prison jumpsuit and chunky glasses, his beard flecked with gray, listening impassively. It’s the end of the day’s proceedings, and Judge Ronald S. Coen is announcing the bail for Knight, who is facing charges of murder, attempted murder and hit-and-run: “In this court’s opinion, $25 million is reasonable, and it is so set.”
