Suge Knight

Music Mogul

The era-defining label known as Death Row Records housed some of hip hop’s biggest names, including Snoop Dogg, Tupac and co-founder Dr. Dre. Not only is Marion Hugh “Suge” Knight famous for co-founding the historic label and morphing the careers of legendary MCs, but he’s infamous for his never ending run-ins with the law, intimidation tactics and violent behavior, most notably his involvement in the infamous East Coast-West Coast rivalry. The murders of both Big and Pac created speculations about Suge’s involvement, with several sources claiming that the former football star orchestrated both murders (a charge that has caused tension between Knight and Snoop Dogg, who’s openly accused him of Tupac’s death on several occasions). After filing for bankruptcy and selling the once-untouchable Death Row, he went on to create a new label called Black Kapital. In recent years, the former music mogul continues to populate blogs and flood news headlines for his street battles and legal issues.
