Suge Knight is regarded as one of the most dangerous men in rap music history. The rapper is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence for the 2015 killing of Terry Carter Jr. However, the Death Row Records co-founder now wants to make his dramatic life story into a television show.
The television show is set to go deep even further into his notorious timeline than what the general public is already aware of. According to TMZ Hip Hop, Suge and his brother, Brian Brown, are working on a television project that will start filming this summer.
According to reports that the series will have a vibe similar to 50 Cent’s popular show “BMF.” In the show, Suge will have plenty of plot time to share his early life outside of the music business as a young boy in Compton who wanted to coach football.
Suge is currently supervising the production from behind bars. It’s been reported that he is actively involved in choosing the director and actors, particularly for the Tupac Shakur role. According to TMZ’s sources, Suge is prioritizing acting skills over on-screen similarity for whoever plays ‘Pac, and they also need to accurately portray the icon’s mannerisms and style.
The times have significantly changed since Suge’s absence. Snoop Dogg has taken over the rights to Death Row’s catalog and distributed the music in a massive $1 billion initiative alongside Larry Jackson. Dr. Dre also hosted a party to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the release of his “Chronic” classic. Keep an eye on Thirsty For News to get more updates regarding the upcoming television show.
