Showtime's announced that they have a full-length documentary on the life of Death Row Records co-founder Marion "Suge" Knight in the works.
Tentatively titled “Suge Knight,” the film will be the first in a new series of docs from the cable network on “iconic and controversial figures.”
According to a statement from Showtime, “Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua “will delve deep into the life and storied exploits of the Death Row Records co-founder as well as the volatile and highly influential era in music that he presided over.”
The network promises that Knight, now 46, will “personally reveal exactly how it all happened, why it all fell apart, and what the next chapter holds for one of America’s most iconic and mythologized figures.” Other key names from a tumultuous period in hip-hop history are expected to participate as well.
The former CEO of Death Row Records, Knight introduced the world to the likes of Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg. (Director Fuqua has also reportedly been attached to a biopic about Tupac.)
“Suge Knight’s reputation and rise to power in the music business has become the stuff of legend,” said Bradley J. Fischer (“Black Swan”), who’s set to produce the film alongside Fuqua. “Antoine Fuqua and I are thrilled to be partnering with Showtime to tell this remarkable story and take audiences behind a curtain that most have been terrified to even approach.”
The documentary also heralds Knight's return to the music business - he'll be overseeing the film’s soundtrack through his new company, Black Kapital.

You're right, I don't care for them either.
Ain't nobody care about no black people.

All of your lingo proves you're a white,middle aged,unemployed,bitter person that's mad at the world.Well stay mad because there will be lots more Tupacs,Jay Zs Weezys and so ons.
Suge Knight is a legend in our community. He has produced many soulful stylings ranging from Gladys Knight and the Pipps all the way to Aretha. He was the first brother to introduce the mega fro and pick on national tv. As the spokesperson for Colt 45 malt liquor he has shown we all have something to offer.
@tracie. Word up homie. I know what you be sayin. At Kwanza time we use it fo all sorts of things. I like it instead of the afrosheen.

Kool Moe D, old school sterotypin' that's ahhhaight...

My guess is that you're white. Don't be hating because we've got the lifestyle and you don't. Our music that you deem as crap is more relevant than you know, realize, or want to believe it to be. Of course we've lost our way these days, but believe what I say when I say we're making it back to the top! Keep with the jokes all you want... I'm taking my "Popeyes" all the way to the bank, son. Respect.
My guess is you're whiter than he is...
Keep that up and Suge will hang you over a hotel balcony.
I wonder what skinny white guy they will get to play Vanilla Ice (Neil Patrick Harris?)when they show Knight hanging him off the balcony....and more importantly will they show the brown spot on the back of Ices pants when Knight brings him back into the hotel room.....LOL
