When you think of Suge Knight, an automatic since of fear seems to strike a chord with most people. Regarded at one time as one of the most powerful hip hop moguls, during the 90's the CEO of Deathrow Records was also one person you just didn't f*ck with.
There was a scene in the movie Straight Outta Compton of Suge luring Eazy E to the studio; forcing him to release Dr. Dre from Ruthless Records. Another notorious hip hop urban myth was how Suge and his goons hanging Vanilla Ice off of a balcony in Hollywood, signing over his publishing for Ice Ice Baby - using the money to help start up of Deathrow Records.
All speculation of course but the truth of the matter is, Suge was that guy!
Chuck Dizzle & DJ HED had the opportunity to sit with Suge Knight Jr., son the infamous CEO to discuss making a name for himself, the pros and cons of carrying such a powerful name, his relationship with former Deathrow artists and even the murder of hip hop icon Tupac Shakur.
...and we all rememeber when Suge called out Puffy during the 95 Source Awards right?
