Rumors are spreading that one of the reasons why Suge Knight was shot at Chris Brown’s pre-VMA party in West Hollywood is because of the releasing of his book detailing his life in the hip hop industry.
Insiders say that the book would contain tales of his days creating Death Row Records to his business deals. In 2002, he had a book deal with Penguin’s Riverhead Books, but nothing sustainable came from it. He probably needs a book deal to help him fix his financial troubles. He filed for bankruptcy in 2006.
Insiders also say that there was a previous plan to target Knight at Brown’s home barbecue on Saturday, but that wasn’t possible. So, it was moved to the club.
Knight refuses to talk to cops about the shooting. This is the same behavior he practiced when cops asked him about the shooting of Tupac Shakur.
