The infamous former Deathrow Records head honcho, Suge Knight, had many instances of putting fear into people. The Game grew up hearing the tales of Suge Knight in Los Angeles, but that didn’t stop the then 25 year old from fearing the legend of Knight.
“I’ve been face-to-face with Suge, on both sides,” he said. “Suge rolled up on me one time after the Vibe Awards after-party with like, 60 gangsters. He wanted to press for something I said in my song about him, which I said it because I’m from Compton. I’m really from Compton. And I felt like Death Row and Suge and that whole era took so many lives that didn’t get mentioned. In the city. A couple of those was friends and big homies. So, I said a few things about Suge that he didn’t like and they rolled up on me.”
The Game still respects Suge Knight for what he gave to Los Angeles in terms of hip hop. He said that “we can’t take away what he did give, the [Tupac] albums, the Snoop albums, the who Death Row.” Watch Game and Nick chop it up about music below.
