Since late 2018, Suge Knight has been incarcerated at RJ Donovan Penitentiary Center in San Diego. Knight was once a monumental figure in the hip hop community as co-founder and CEO of the legendary Death Row Records, but after a series of personal, professional and legal problems, Knight found himself falling out of favor .

In 2015, Knight crushed two men with his vehicle – Terry Carter, co-founder of Heavyweight Records and friend of Knight, and filmmaker Cle Sloan – before fleeing. Carter died as a result of his injuries and, while witnesses claimed that the incident seemed intentional, Knight said it was a self defense. Knight later pleaded no way to challenge the intentional homicide, however, a judge sentenced him to 28 years in jail.

Even though he is locked up at the age of 53, he is still listening to the streets. TMZ recently spoke to Knight about the murder of Nipsey Hussle, and the former CEO told them that he thought the quest for success of the murdered rapper and love for his neighborhood was what l & # 39; He had killed. "Many artists like Nipsey have the same problem as me," Knight said. "We are too loyal to our neighborhood." He went on to say that many artists had the money and resources to move but they ended up staying where they came from because "when you go to Hollywood, everything is diluted"

Knight admitted that he often went to his old pedestrian place to "take chili cheese fries and strawberries and talk to my boyfriends." Yet, he says, when we decide to return to these neighborhoods, these "boyfriends" are the ones you need to "help you survive". TMZ suggested that Knight was insinuating that people around Nipsey could have done more to protect him.

Knight compared Nipsey to Tupac, stating, "I think Nipsey was trying to follow the same Tupac handbook to the community, and he came with YG as Snoop with Tupac." He hopes that Nipsey's legacy will unify Los Angeles in the years to come. "What's good is that all hoods are gathering now … we can be stronger considering what happens when we get together."
