Former Death Row CEO, Suge Knight, will be sentenced Thursday for the 2015 manslaughter of Terry Carter. Knight recently accepted a plea deal in which he would receive a 28 year sentence in prison.
Now in a new behind the bars interview with The Blast Knight is speaking out saying that Dr. Dre attempted to have him kill. During the interview Knight revealed that he believed that the trial shed light on the situation that led to the two men confronting him at Tam’s Burgers in Compton which resulted in him running over Carter in attempt to escape the area.
According to The Blast Knight claims that he struck a deal a lifetime deal with Dre to collect 30% of the producer’s earnings, and that Dre’s $3 billion deal between Apple and Beats is subject to the terms of their agreement. Knight says he attempted to collect what was owed to him and instead of paying up claims Dre put a hit out on him which led to the situation at Tam’s Burgers.
“They also got the paper trail with all the checks and proof of when they talked to the witnesses saying that Dre came to them first and asked the two guys how much it cost to get rid of me,” Knight says. “And they said, ‘What you mean by get rid of?’ And they said, ‘Kill him.'” Suge would describe the situation as a ‘murder for hire case’.
