Questionable sources claim Suge Knight may have been shot because he was seeking a tell all book deal. Knight apparently scored an advance for a similar book years ago but realized he would have to pull a drive by on his own home were it ever published. He never wrote the memoir but kept the publishing advance because fuck your credit score when you get shot at thrice yearly.
“[Suge Knight's book would] chronicle the inspirational story of Knight’s emergence from the streets of Compton, Calif., to become one of the most significant and controversial personalities in the music industry and detail Knight’s take on the deaths of Tupac and Biggie Smalls, his friendship with John F Kennedy Jr… Incidents involving Snoop Dogg, Vanilla Ice, Dr Dre, Puff Daddy and Jennifer Lozpez, among others.”
I’d read that, even though I suspect he’d forget to mention any details of his five dozen felony offenses. The new date for the publication is probably well into the next millennia after he and generations of his cohorts and enemies have killed each other off, leaving the memoir to be sold in college book stores to trust fund kids with Knight’s poster on their dorm wall.
