Suge Knight's Son Speaks ALL About His Father's Controversial Sentencing

Suge Knight

Suge Knight Jr. continues to defend his father's legacy.

As you know, Suge Knight is currently behind bars for the murder of his friend Terry Carter in January 2015. The Death Row Records label head is accused of intentionally running over Carter in the parking lot of a Compton burger stand, something his camp claims was done in self defense.

As the trial continues to face postponements, Suge Jr. is speaking out against his father's unfair treatment in prison, the ongoing trial, and how the 21-year-old intends to defend Knight's legacy.

In a lengthy interview with The Tomorrow Show on Thursday night, the former student — who left college in Nashville after receiving threats following his father's depiction in Straight Outta Compton – went as far as to say that without his father, there would be no Tupac, Snoop Dogg, or maybe even Dr. Dre:

"Honestly, it's no disrespect for them but you know there wouldn't obviously be no Tupac, obviously no Snoop. If we went further there probably wouldn't be Dre Beats."

When discussing the trial, Suge Jr. believes this is more of a "civil rights case" and how black people are wrongfully convicted of crimes, and less about his father:

Suge Knight Files A New Lawsuit Claiming Dr. Dre Once Hired A Hitman To Kill Him!

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?

And now, Dre is threatening a lawsuit if that movie ever airs!!

Ice Cube & Dr. Dre Dismissed From Wrongful Death Lawsuit In Suge Knight's Fatal Hit-And-Run

no title

Ice Cube and Dr. Dre are officially off the hook for Terry Carter's tragic death, according to TMZ.

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.

Chris Brown has even more drama now!

Chris Brown is facing even more legal trouble!

It's been revealed on Monday that the Back To Sleep rapper is being sued by Suge Knight for the 2014 shooting that left him with multiple gun wounds to the abdomen, left forearm, and chest.

In case you don't remember, the 51-year-old, who is currently in jail awaiting trial for a hit-and-run, was reportedly shot seven times at Chris' pre-VMAs party.

Suge is suing the star for not having better security at 1Oak, the club which hosted the party, and for letting at least one armed person into the party. He also claims the 27-year-old has a history of having events that attract violence.

The music mogul cited complications from his injuries, including a blood clot, in his legal docs.

Additionally, his lawyers believe it was his fear after the shooting which led him to flee when he ran down two men after being attacked in his car.

There's no word on how much Suge is suing Chris for.

We wonder if the young singer will speak out on the latest news!

Suge Knight & Katt Williams Are Expected To Go To Trial Over Robbery Charges

Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!

Suge & Katt will go to court.

It looks like Suge Knight and Katt Williams are headed to court.

Last year, the two allegedly stole photographer Leslie Ridden's camera, and now they're being ordered to stand trial for the robbery case.

During a preliminary hearing on Tuesday at Los Angeles Superior Court, Judge Ronald Coen said that there's evidence to back up the charges.

He also said that Leslie's other claim against Suge — that the 50-year-old threatened her before swiping her equipment — could also stand up.

However, lawyers for the comedian and the music exec say that their clients were only trying to keep the photog from snapping shots of the record producer's child.

The Compton native's attorney, Thomas Mesereau, denied all the accusations, including the hit-and-run murder charge Suge is currently facing that has nothing to do with this particular case:

"[Suge] never robbed anyone, and he never murdered anyone. He is completely innocent. He never touched this woman, he never ran after her, he didn't assault her. It's a ridiculous case and he will be acquitted."

Not only is Thomas adamant that the former Death Row Records CEO is innocent, he actually seemed to throw Katt under the bus, saying that the actor and another member of their entourage "struggled" with Leslie, while Suge just wasn't involved.

He added:

"But because Suge Knight was there, and because he was concerned about his son, they charged him with a felony."

The 44-year-old's attorney admitted that Katt did take the camera, but from another woman who had already snatched it from the photographer.

During this week's hearing, Leslie claimed that she was injured in the altercation, explaining:

"There's a rip in my wrist. I'm ambidextrous, but my hands don't work."

She also alleges she had a concussion.

Suge and Katt have both pleaded not guilty to the charges, and are expected to be arraigned on October 27. The Black Kapital Records founder is still behind bars for his hit-and-run case.
