Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight has reportedly sold his life rights to musician and Love and Hip-Hop star Ray J.
What We Know:
- Suge Knight who is currently behind bars for voluntary manslaughter has reportedly sold away his life rights to Ray J allowing him to handle Knight’s business decisions while he is currently detained in prison.
- Ray J now has the go-ahead to work on any projects involving Knight’s likeness or life story and the opportunity to bring in some cash for both of them. He is in charge of selecting any possible biopics or biographies about or involving Knight. Reports say a documentary on Death Row Records and Suge is possibly already underway and that there is even the chance the label itself could make a return after closing its doors in 2009.
- It seems that other stars may be interested in working with the dynamic duo, as rapper and executive producer of Power 50 Cent told Ray J in a deleted Instagram post “call me I know what to do with this”.
- UPDATE: In a released recorded audio Knight clarified that his fiancée is the main point person when it comes to his life rights and that Ray J, his “little brother and family”, will handle all things Death Row Records moving forward.
Suge Knight struck a 28-year plea deal for voluntary manslaughter last year, but he could be released in just over a decade due to prior time served and prison overcrowding issues.
