Former Death Row Records owner Marion “Suge” Knight recently took a shot at former music rival Diddy and discussed his late artist Tupac Shakur‘s legacy.
Approached by on-street paparazzi, Knight did not restrain from saying what is on his mind.
“You know, we’re working on these movies right now,” Knight revealed. “These movies, some documentaries. You know. I ain’t like those other dudes in the business. I’m the one who don’t go snitching. Everybody else is telling. That’s why I’m the only one to do time [behind bars], everybody else never go — A lot of these dudes say they love ‘Pac, but at the same time they be doing sh*t like Bucky, I mean Puffy, whatever it is…Once now all of the truth comes out on all the people who did ‘Pac wrong, we still gotta be back on that mission.” (TMZ)
Knight is widely known for going at Diddy and the late Notorious B.I.G. in the mid-1990’s.
A highly publicized feud with Death Row Records (in which Tupac Shakur and label head Suge Knightserved as West Coast/Dark Side equivalents to the Notorious B.I.G.and Combs) was summarily ended in late 1996, when Shakur was murdered and Knight jailed. Six months later, the Notorious B.I.G.was dead as well, and after Combs mourned his friend’s death, he hit the pop charts in a big way during his biggest year, 1997. (All Music)
Knight made headlines earlier this summer for joining PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals).
Confirmed by Kali Bowyer, Suge’s publicist, the former face of West Coast hip-hop will be working alongside PETA for their anti-dog Chaining campaign. “Dogs deserve our love and attention not a life of ‘solitary confinement’ at the end of a chain,” Knight said via a statement. “Dogs depend on us to take care of them, to keep them safe and healthy. Chaining a dog is one of the cruelest things you can to do them – they are social animals.” (XXL Mag)
While details are still coming together, Knight is expected to appear in a photo shoot for the campaign.
In the mid-90s, he was involved in some of the most violent events in the gangsta rap world, but RumorFix has learned exclusively that Marion “Suge” Knight is showing a more caring, human side. The former CEO of Death Row Records is taking part in a photo shoot with his three Labradors for animal rights organization PETA, highlighting the issue of chaining dogs outside. (RumorFix)
