Either Suge Knight is filing a lawsuit, or he's the subject of one.
According to TMZ, Suge is suing longtime enemy Dr. Dre for allegedly hiring a hitman to kill him back in 2014. The suit follows many years of controversies, arrests, and other legal issues for the rapper.
While Knight is currently behind bars for the murder of his friend Terry Carter in January 2015, he isn't letting incarceration get in the way of his revenge.
According to the scandalized figure, he entered a "lifelong" business agreement with former Death Row Records partner back when the two were friendly. S.K. reasons this gave him a 30% cut of Dre's entertainment earnings, which includes his popular business Beats By Dre.
The 50-year-old went on to allege that the mogul tried to cut him out of the Beats By Dre deal after Apple bought the company. Apparently Apple did NOT want Suge's name and sordid history attached to the project.
Given the tricky predicament, Mr. Knight claims the celeb hired a hitman to shoot him at a party over VMAs weekend. Suge went on to survive the seven shots to his stomach and the shooter was never caught despite there being thirty-seven cameras at the club.
In response to the suit, Dre's lawyer shot back:
"Given that Dre has had zero interaction with Suge since leaving Death Row Records in 1996, we hope that Suge's lawyer has lots of malicious prosecution insurance."
Wow! The 51-year-old's legal rep sounds PISSED.
So, who do YOU believe in this mess?

Seems like Dr. Dre is NOT happy with an upcoming TV movie that portrays him in a not-so-kind light!
Lifetime is set to run a Sony Pictures flick called Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel'le that apparently portrays the Chronic rapper as a woman beater who knocks his ex-girlfriend senseless.
And now, Dre is threatening a lawsuit if that movie ever airs!!
Dre's legal team filed a cease and desist letter with Sony Pictures this week, according to TMZ, demanding that Sony back off their plans to release the made-for-TV movie depicting the rapper's decades-old relationship with Michel'le.
If Sony airs it, according to the legal docs, a day in court will be ahead.
In the letter, Dre openly
You might recall, the man was sadly killed after being run over by Suge Knight, who had just gotten into a fight with two crew members from the Straight Outta Compton set.
After the devastating loss, Terry's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Suge, but also named Ice Cube and Dre as defendants, arguing that they hired gang members to keep the now-jailed Death Row Records co-founder away from the movie's set.
They believe Knight's getting turned away is what caused the Compton native to get so angry that he fatally backed over his friend.
However, a judge recently dismissed the Ride Along 2 star and the Beats Electronics CEO from the suit, saying it didn't make any sense to blame them for Suge's actions.
The lawsuit still stands against the former Death Row Records exec, who also has a murder trial pending for the hit-and-run.

These are some pretty big claims!
In a recent shocking interview with the Murder Master Music Show, Eminem's former bodyguard Byron "Big Naz" Williams alleged Suge Knight once sent his men out for E back in the day!
According to him, the music producer and co-founder of Death Row Records hired "henchmen" to go after the rapper at the 2001 Source Awards, where he performed his song Purple Pills.
In case you didn't know, the Source Awards was an awards show that honored both hip hop and R&B artists, but only lasted eight years before ending in 2002.
Well, the bodyguard turned author divulged:
What a frustrating AND frightening situation for Dr. Dre.
On Monday, the rapper was handcuffed outside of his Malibu home following an INTENSE incident of road rage.
According to TMZ, the Compton native was driving on the freeway when he got into an altercation with a fellow motorist. While it's not clear what set off the disagreement, it got so bad that the other driver followed Dre all the way back to his mansion. Once back at the musician's house, the driver sat parked in his car until the 51-year-old asked him to leave.
As the other aggressive motorist started to take off, he took the opportunity to curse out the hit maker, which is when Dre decided to film the craziness with his cellphone camera. It's obvious the father wanted evidence to present to authorities if things escalated any further.
Unfortunately, the driver did NOT take well to being videotaped and he allegedly yelled:
"Here we go again, another black guy with a gun."
Yikes. what a disgusting thing to say.
The angry guy went on to tell authorities that the mogul was in possession of a gun — a claim which was NOT substantiated upon cops arrival.
Despite the lack of a weapon, the driver insisted on making a citizen's arrest against Dre. It's obvious the person involved in this scandal really wants to really stick it to the rapper!
We'll keep you updated as this cases progresses.

But this week, the 46-year-old actor and rapper was finally able to pull it off!
On Saturday night, Cube and the rest of the surviving members of the rap group — MC Ren, DJ Yella, AND Dre — took the stage for a VERY memorable performance!
After Ren, Yella, and Ice pumped the crowd up with Straight Outta Compton, Cube asked the crowd:
"Is there a doctor in the motherf*cking house?"
Of course this is when
