Ray J is reportedly planning to meet with President of the United States administration. He wants Suge Knight to be released from prison. According to the Daily Mail, an insider close to the Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star says he wants a pardon from President Donald Trump. The reason being that the former label boss of Snoop Dogg has learned his lesson. Knight is currently serving a 28-year sentence for manslaughter after he struck and killed Terry Carter with his vehicle on the Straight Outta Compton movie set in January 2015.
The source reportedly explained that his ex girlfriend Kim Kardashian inspired him due to her successful job at getting clemency for Alice Johnson, a black woman convicted of drug trafficking in 1996 and released last year.
However, Trump’s polarizing figure in the African American community may be seen as career suicide for the singer if he ends up meeting President Trump.
“The people around Ray J keep telling him that the fallout with African Americans for meeting with Trump could be catastrophic to his career,” the insider reportedly said. “Especially if he shows up at a political rally.”
He recently put Ray J in control of all Death Row dealings. However, Knight denied he handed over his life rights.
“I just heard about the article being released regarding that Ray J has all my rights television, movies, books, you know all that type of stuff,” he said. “He don’t. Ray J is not just a friend of mine, that’s little brother, that’s family. He continued by saying, “And I respect Ray J and his business dealings, that’s why I choose him as one of the guys to deal with the music side of the future for as Death Row Records, anything to do Death Row.”
