Suge Knight’s 28 Year Sentence Is the Unnecessary End Of An Era

Our personal history will be written about us regardless what occurs in our life, good or bad. It is up to us to determine what will be written about ourselves. The choices we make will always correlate to the outcome. So it makes one wonder if you have a choice, if you are in position to do something amazing, why would you purposely opt for an outcome that would for certain be your demise.

Today in Los Angeles, superior court Judge Ronald S. Coen, sentenced former CEO of Death Row Records, Marion ‘Suge’ Knight to 28 years in prison for his role in a fatal hit and run incident.

The one-time music mogul was found guilty for killing a man and severely injuring another when Knight dove his vehicle over them while at a Los Angeles area food stand in 2015.

The 28-year sentence, with possibility of parole in 20 years was a result of Knight’s no-contest plea to voluntary manslaughter. By doing so he avoided a possible life sentence.

The hit and run incident which occurred at Tam’s Burgers was caught on surveillance cameras and shows Knight backed his pickup truck over Cle Sloan then driving forward and hitting Terry Carter. Knight then drove off. Carter died as a result of his injuries.

In court a letter from Carter’s widow, Lillian, was read to the Judge by Carter’s sister, Jessica Carter. In part it said, “He was so much more than the guy who the defendant killed with his truck. He as my husband, my best friend, my provider.”

Carter also said she was devastated seeing Knight smiling at his loved ones during his various court appearances, but noted, “I will never witness Terry smiling at me again.”

Such a horrible ending to what could have been one of the greatest rag to riches stories the music industry as ever known. Knight who began his career in entertainment as a bodyguard for celebrities became one of the most important figures in hip-hop history. He founded Death Row Records and developed the careers of super-stars Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg.

However, his name will also forever be associated with Hip Hop’s darkest era, the West Coast and East Coast feud. The bicoastal battle is what many believe is connected to the deaths of Notorious BIG and Tupac Shakur.

Despite Death Row Records generating hundreds of millions in profits between its founding year of 1991 and the year after Shakur’s death in 1996, Knight eventually lost control of Death Row Records after it went into bankruptcy.
