In the 1990’s there were two words that every rapper feared. Suge. Knight. The hulking, cigar-chomping CEO of Death Row Records, Knight was in control of some of gangsta rap’s biggest names like Dr. Dre, Tupac and Snoop. He even allegedly dangled Vanilla Ice out of a window. Even as his star rapper was gunned down, Knight’s legend grew after surviving the hail of bullets that killed Tupac. Of course, none of that mattered once Knight went to jail in 1997 for nine years. By the time he got out, gangsta rap was over and his empire officially fell five years later.
