Suge Knight’s name has been mentioned in a number of conspiracy theories surrounding the killings of Biggie Smalls and Tupac, but where is he now?
Suge Knight has come under fire a lot over the years with numerous conspiracy theories claiming he was involved in the murders of Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur.
A long-term mystery for fans, the untimely death of the rappers has often left people with many questions about what really happened.
Was Suge Knight involved? Was he ever charged?
As fans gear up to watch Biggie: I Got A Story To Tell on Netflix - a new documentary about the 'Juicy' rapper's life - here's what we know about where Suge Knight is now and if he was ever legally charged for involvement with Biggie's death.
Where is Suge Knight now?
Despite a number of rumours and accusations, Suge Knight nor anyone else for that matter, has ever been formally charged for the rap icons’ deaths.
The former music executive and CEO of Death Row Records had a number of huge talents signed to his label, including Tupac, Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg - which the latter two ended up leaving following Tupac’s untimely death in 1996.
In the late 90’s up until the early 2000s, Knight spent a few years in prison for assault convictions and associated violations of probation.
He was initially on probation after assaulting two rappers in 1992 at a Hollywood recording studio.
In 2015, Knight, who was also declared bankrupt in 2008, crashed his car into two men, one of whom was Terry Carter, the co-founder of Heavyweight Records, and a friend of his.
He ended up killing Terry, whilst the second person and filmmaker - Cle Sloan - suffered injuries to his head and foot.
Some witnesses claimed that Suge had followed the pair after an argument on the Straight Outta Compton film set, with claims it looked intentional.
In 2018, Suge pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter, which has now seen him into a 28-year long prison sentence - 22 years for the hit and run charge and a following six years for it being a third strike with his run-ins with the law and violating probation.
He is now serving his prison sentence at RJ Donovan Correctional Facility in San Diego.
