Former Record Company Owner Suge Knight is as infamous for his brushes with the law as he is his music career.
Between the conspiracies about his involvement in rapper Tupac Shakur’s murder and his many, many arrests, Marion “Suge” Knight’s life has been captivating — and now it will all be featured in an upcoming Showtime documentary.
“Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua will direct the film, as well as produce it with the help of “Black Swan’s” Bradley Fischer, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Knight, co-founder of the widely successful Death Row Records, has agreed to participate in the film and discuss his career highs and lows. He was responsible for the careers of Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, as well as others.
“Suge Knight’s reputation and rise to power in the music business has become the stuff of legend, and he remains one of the entertainment industry’s most provocative and enduring myths,” Bradley Fischer said.
“But while his name elicits an immediate and powerful reaction from people around the world, very few can legitimately claim to know the man.”
The Knight documentary will be the first in a series that Showtime has planned, which will spotlight controversial figures.
