The man who is locked up for being convicted of voluntary manslaughter conviction may soon see a biopic about his life. Suge Knight has been rumored for the last couple of years of getting a biopic. Fans would entertain the idea since he was the head of one of the most infamous music labels in the history of the industry in Death Row Records.  It was originally reported that Ray J was somehow involved and Nick Cannon would be write the biography of sorts, but there hasn’t been updated news or movement regarding those deals.

Earlier today (December 20), Deadline reported that Knight has partnered with Steve Whitney and his production company TSW Films. The publication stated that Knight has signed over his life rights for an upcoming biopic and the former Rap mogul explained why he decided to move forward with this particular company.

“Over the last 30 years, there has been so much talk about Compton, me, the inner cities, and Death Row – A lot of talk. Even when it comes to making my movie there has been so many imposters saying they have my rights, or they got the deal – that was, and is, all talk,” said Knight. “I jumped off the porch in my neighborhood at a young age but never forgot where I came from. Most people try to ride for the hills, I made it and tried to bring as many people to the hills with me and feel that I was successful at it.”

“I met a guy named Mike Klein that was with Ruthless. David Kenner was on the phone with Michael Harris and they took a meeting with Jerry Heller and during [the] process of taking that meeting, they were trying to sell [Dr.] Dre back to Ruthless behind my back,” said Knight. “Mike Klein told me about it and I respect him for it – We became friends. So when it came time to do a real movie and tell the truth about it he introduced me to Steve Whitney. Now, Steve, Mike, and I, and the woman that has my back, are making this movie. Taking it to the next level!”

Whitney also praised Knight for his contributions to music. “During the golden era of rap and hip hop, all roads led through Suge Knight,” said Whitney. “That era helped define a new brand of music and culture that changed the world.”
