Founder and CEO of Black Kapital Records, Suge Knight is quite the controversial hip hop figure. After Coachella’s amazing performance of Tupac hologram, former CEO of Death Row Records Suge Knight said that the rapper might still be alive. Now, two weeks later, the media roams over reports that Suge Knight was arrested for killing Tupac. The truth is that Suge Knight was not arrested in the Tupac murder case.
Like most old school bad boy rappers in the United States, Marion aka Suge Knight has quite a track record of violence and crime. In fact, the first crime record dates back to 1987 and it continues with gun charges, drug possession, probation violations and so on. Earlier this week, Suge Knight was said to have been arrested for Tupac Shakur’s murder.
The rumor started on Twitter and went viral from that point on. The news was that Suge Knight was arrested in Tupac murder case while he was still in Las Vegas. Many thought the rumor was in fact reality and didn’t seem too surprised about it. There are some opinions that Suge Knight was actually the man who gave the order to have both Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. killed.
But as it turned out later on, it looks like the report was a hoax. At least that’s what the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said. Their spokeswoman Laura Meltzer told E! News: “I don’t have any information that Suge Knight has been arrested. We picked him up on some traffic warrants back in February and that is the last arrest I show for him”.
Suge Knight got under the public eye with a quite controversial theory. He told a radio, soon after the Tupac hologram performance at Coachella, that he doesn’t believe the rap artist is dead. “Maybe the question is…Pac’s not really dead…Pac’s somewhere else. Nobody seen Tupac dead” told Suge Knight on 93.5 KDay radio in Los Angeles.
The notorious CEO of Black Kapital Records explained that he thinks Tupac faked his own death, after getting 3 million dollars. “The person who supposedly cremated Tupac…this guy got about 3 million dollars…personally from me…cash…and the next thing I know I never heard from the guy or seen him again…he retired and left” concluded Suge Knight.
