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.

Rapper Frost Says Eazy-E Contracted AIDS From Tainted Acupuncture Needles — Claims Another Artist Is Responsible, But WHO?!

Do you think this is true???

It's been 20 years since Eazy-E passed away from AIDS, but with the recent success of Straight Outta Compton – which told the tale of E and all the other artists making up NWA — people are once again wondering just how the icon contracted the deadly disease in the first place.

And now, one rapper claims to know the truth about the late legend's untimely end. Frost, whose real name is Arturo Molina, Jr. opened up about the tragedy in an upcoming documentary called For the Record: The Story of Latinos in Hip Hop.

He says a man who — in West Coast rap — goes by "the devil" made sure Eazy's acupuncture needles contained the virus, saying:

"I'm-a tell you what happened with Eazy getting AIDS and I believe this to this day. I don't care if you guys got it on film. You can tell the world. They gave him tainted needles with acupuncture. Needles that tainted him, they gave it to him."

That's certainly one way to re-open a conspiracy theory. Frost was too anxious to reveal the suspect's actual name, but the late hitmaker was known to have an ongoing feud with Suge Knight.

In fact, after Straight Outta Compton was released, an old Jimmy Kimmel clip of an interview with the Death Row Records CEO made the internet rounds, showing the producer saying:

Straight Outta Compton Sequel Following The Careers Of Snoop Dogg, Tupac, & Tha Dogg Pound Is In The Works! Details Here!

Filed under: Music MinuteFilm FlickersSnoopDr. DreIce Cube

no title

UPDATE 5:03 PM EST: Universal has denied that a sequel is in the works. A spokesperson with the studio said:

"At this time there are no plans for a Straight Outta Compton sequel."


Straight Outta Compton has been making a killing at the box office, achieving both critical and commercial success after its opening weekend!

So that means Hollywood is getting ready to follow up with more rap biopics! It's been reported that a Straight Outta Compton sequel is in the works — following the rise of Snoop Dogg, Tupac, and other West Coast greats!

Dogg Pound veteran Daz revealed that the film — reportedly titled Dogg Pound 4 Life — will follow the careers of Snoop, Nate Dogg, Kurupt, Daz, and Warren G!

The focus of the film will center around Tha Dogg Pound Gangstaz' music, but will also include gang violence and its impact on the rap industry.

Dr. Dre's son Curtis Young is said to take over the role of his dad for the upcoming film — a role that went to Corey Hawkins in Compton. As for the casting of Snoop and Ice Cube, it doesn't look like actors from Compton will reprise their roles.

Since the formation Dr. Dre's Death Row Records will be a huge part of this story, co-founder Suge Knight will be included. Though the producers won't be working directly with him since he is serving jail time after being charged with murder.

Are YOU excited for this Straight Outta Compton sequel?

Between A Self-Flushing Toilet And A Possible Brain Tumor, Suge Knight Is Having A Tough Time In Prison!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersHealthCrazzzzy

no title

Poor, poor Suge Knight.

The music mogul is having a tough time in prison after being charged with murder — though he's been there enough that you'd think he would know how to handle it!

[ Related: Actor Arrested After Gunfight With Police! ]

Knight is filing documents through his lawyer, Tom Mesereau, to get into a better jail cell for medical and mental reasons after he contends — get this — that his toilet flushes three times an hour, all 24 hours, on its own!

With a toilet that won't stop, and a jail bed which is too short for his 6'2" stature, Suge is going crazy in there, apparently.

Oh, and by the way (and slightly more serious) — Mesereau is also alleging that Knight has numbness down one entire side of his body, and doctors believe he has a brain tumor. Um… yikes.

Knight is currently jailed on $10 million bail. That's been reduced once already, down from $25 million, though it's expected that later on Friday Mesereau will argue to have it reduced once again.

Suge Knight, Dr. Dre, And Ice Cube Are All Being Sued For Wrongful Death By Terry Carter's Family

Filed under: Legal MattersDr. DreIce Cube

Things just do not get better for Suge Knight.

Not only is the 50-year-old facing murder as well as attempted murder charges, he's also being sued by Terry Carter's family for running him over that fateful night.

But Suge isn't the only one named in the wrongful death lawsuit. Dr. Dre and Ice Cube have also been called out in the case.

[ Related: Suge Pleads Not Guilty To Murder ]

Terry's wife and children filed the lawsuit and are claiming both producers of Straight Outta Compton hired known gang members to protect the set and shoots in gang-infested neighborhoods.

The case is also claiming some of the gang members started the drama and threatened the rapper, which lead to his decision to drive through the parking lot recklessly and eventually running over Carter.

Carter's family is also suing the location where it happened. They're claiming Tam's Burgers often experience violent crimes in their parking lot so they should've had security to prevent things from happening.


Terry's family is seeking unspecified damages in their lawsuit.

Suge Knight Pleads Not Guilty To Murder As Judge Denies The Rapper's Request For Reduced Bail

Filed under: Legal Matters

no title

On April 30, Suge Knight plead not guilty to the murder of Terry Carter.

[ Related: Cle Sloan Won't Testify Against Suge For Running Him Over! ]

His request to have his bail reduced from $10 million to $5 million was also DENIED.

The request was a tad outrageous, considering the bail had already been reduced from $25 million at a previous hearing.

Hmm, it seems like Suge should be grateful for the fact that his bail was decreased to begin with, especially when you consider the severity of his crime and the incriminating video that comes along with it!

So, do YOU agree with the judge?

Suge Knight's Bail Is Dropped By MILLIONS, And His Hit-And-Run Charges Have Changed! See Suge's Good & Bad News HERE!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad Sad

Things might be looking up for Suge Knight in the midst of his murder trial.

It's been reported that this morning, the judge in his trial substantially reduced the former rap mogul's bail from $25 million to $10 million.

Knight's lawyer is optimistic that his client can make bail as early as today.

The judge also dropped one of the two hit-and-run counts in Knight's fatal parking lot car accident in the wake of a suspicious testimony from Cle Sloan — whom Knight allegedly tried to hit with his truck.

We wonder if this drop in bail has less to do with the charge changes and more with the 49-year-old's court-disrupting health problems?

Not all the music exec's news was good. At the end of the preliminary hearing, judge Ronald Coen ruled that there WAS enough evidence for Knight to stand trial on murder and attempted murder charges.
