Suge knight’s Career
Suge Knight started his early career in 1989 when he established his own music publishing company. Following his stint with ‘Vanilla Ice”, he was exposed to a great fortune in music. The deal was not without its share of controversies.
In the early 90’s “gangsta rap” was the beginning to conquer the American rap industry. Dr. Dre was one of the most promising youngsters in the genre. He later joined hands with Knight and laid the foundation of ‘Death Row Records’ in 1991.
The arrival of Tupac Shakur was like a tonic for the label as he introduced his own style of rapping. A few rappers such as MC Hammer continued to quit the label because of the growing notoriety.
In 1996 Tupac Shakur was shot dead in Las Vegas. ‘Death Row Records’ artists, including Snoop Dogg accused Knight of being involved in the murder. A few days it became clear that Knight had committed the act to advance the murder of Tupac.

In 2002, the IRS announced that Suge owed $6.5 million in back taxes. In 2006 Suge filed for personal bankruptcy. At the time he claimed to have assets valued between zero dollars and $50,000.
He also claimed to have debts totaling more than $100 million, although much of that was the result of a single $107 million judgment that was awarded to the former wife of his business partner. These debts forced Death Row to file for bankruptcy later that same year.In 2009, the assets of Death Row were sold at auction for $18 million.
The winning bidder was a company called WIDEawake Entertainment Group. WIDEawake eventually was sold to a Canadian company called New Solutions Financial Corp. New Solutions Financial Corp filed for bankruptcy in 2012. However during 2013 Death Row’s assets were bought by a company called Entertainment One, also known as eOne.
On March 2019 eOne was acquired by toy maker Hasbro. In 2021 Hasbro sold its music division, including Death Row’s assets, to private equity giant The Blackstone Group.
Meanwhile In February 2022, Blackstone sold the brand name and intellectual property rights for “Death Row Records” to Snoop Dogg for an undisclosed amount. Blackstone retained ownership of the music company’s extremely valuable master recordings.
Personal Life Story
Knight married American R&B singer Michel’le in 1999 when he was in prison. He had previously helped her get clean by sending her to rehab. She filed for divorce 6 years later, then discovered their marriage was actually invalid because he was still technically married to an ex-wife.
The two have a daughter, Bailei (b. 2002). In 2018, Suge’s fiance Toi Lin Kelly was sentenced to three years in jail for assisting Knight in corresponding and communicating with the producers of a Death Row Records tell-all in 2015.
During this time, a judge had previously barred Knight from all communication with anyone but his lawyer ahead of his murder trial.
