“Explosive: Suge Knight Accuses Bankruptcy Fraud in Death Row Records Sale to Snoop Dogg”
Former Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight Accuses he harbors no resentment towards Snoop Dogg for buying the record label he co-founded but is doubtful about the legitimacy of the purchase. Speaking to TMZ Hip Hop from California State Penitentiary, where he is serving 28 years for voluntary manslaughter, Knight opined that Death Row without his name is incomplete. He also speculated that Michael “Harry-O” Harris, his former business partner, may have committed bankruptcy fraud to take control of the company.
Knight alleged that Death Row was only forfeited because his lawyer failed to appear in court, leading to a default judgment in favor of MNRK Music Group in 2013. He termed the whole bankruptcy proceeding a farce that had hurt most of the label’s artists and amounted to outright violating the law.
Snoop Dogg, however, had nothing to do with the bankruptcy case and bought Death Row from MNRK Music Group in 2022. On the other hand, Harry-O played no part, at least publicly, in the transaction. However, Knight has promised that his upcoming TV series on BLK Prime will reveal all truths about the Death Row saga from his point of view. He also said that the “Murder Was the Case,” soundtrack is among his favorite releases from the label.
Suge Knight further disclosed that the 1994 film “Natural Born Killers” had inspired him to contribute a song, but he had to cede control of the creative process. In response, he created a non-existent movie featuring Snoop and hired the likes of Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and DJ Quik to work on the banging soundtrack.
