Suge Knight Reportedly Signs His Life Rights to Ray J
According to TMZ reports, the former CEO hopes to profit from Ray J’s investments after serving a 28-year prison sentence.
Sources close to Knight say that Suge has signed over his life rights to Ray J. Sources went on to say the two are planning a documentary about Suge and Death Row, as well as a Tupac Shakur project, and — if all goes well — a possible Death Row revival. Ray J is currently working with manager David Weintraub and Too $hort on a documentary about raising daughters in Hollywood.
Resuscitating the label would require multiple investors. Suge believes Ray J is the man for the job–in the past year, he’s cut two seven-figure deals. The first was selling his scooter business, Scoot-E-Bike to Canadian company LOOPShare back in January. This past August, he became the chief strategic media officer for marijuana crowdfunding site MarijuanaStock.org.
Suge was sentenced to 28 years in prison after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter charges. As part of the deal, he could be released in just over ten years due to overcrowding and time served.
