RAP CZAR HORIZONTAL & SNORINGSan Francisco, CA- I know what you’re thinking, “this is not a boxing or MMA picture.” Technically, you are both right and wrong. This convicted Felon whose party garb was always fire engine red,” attempted to get me to interview him several years ago.
REMEMBER “VANILLA ICE” STORY!
Trying to establish a relationship at the time with Zab Judah, Suge Knight, CEO of Death Row Records was trying to become a boxing manager. I can recall early rap star Vanilla Ice and how Suge held him over a balcony by one leg and threatened to drop unless the first Caucasian rapper I can remember signed with Death Row Records. That being said, when I got a couple of calls from Suge’s people, I never returned them and they stopped after about three weeks.
KNIGHT HAD DON KING-LIKE ROLE IN MIND
The last time I saw Tupac Shakur, the rapper was with Suge Knight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas after a Mike Tyson blew out come-backing Bruce Seldon in 1:49 of the opening round. After a skirmish with other LA gang members at the MGM Grand, Knight and Shakur hit The Strip in a BMW. It is believed that rival gang member Orlando Anderson, now deceased, shot Shakur, seated on the other side of the 340 lb. Knight, several times while grazing Knight.
