Suge Knight Sues Dr. Dre, Alleging Murder for Hire Plot

Lawsuit also claims Dre ordered hits to free him from contract that entitles former Death Row exec to 30 percent of rapper's earnings
Suge Knight has sued Dr. Dre claiming that the rapper had hired a hit man to attempt to kill him, among other charges.


Suge Knight has filed a lawsuit against Dr. Dre alleging that the rapper-producer hired a hit man to kill him. The former Death Row Records exec claims that Dre had contracted the man who shot him seven times at Chris Brown's pre-VMA party in the summer of 2014. He says the L.A. County Sherriff's Department questioned a man, identified as "Damian" or "T-Money," who said Dre paid him for the attempted hit; Knight laments in the suit that despite this and 37 cameras in the nightclub where the shooting took place, no arrests were made. He is seeking unspecified damages, punitive and otherwise, for that and a few other claims.

Elsewhere in the lawsuit, Knight alleges Dre and Universal, who released Straight Outta Compton, paid a man $300,000 to finish the hit in January 2015. The man, Cle "Bone" Sloan, admitted to punching Knight during an altercation in the parking lot of Tam's Burgers in Compton before the exec drove away injuring Sloan and killing another man, Terry Carter.

"The lawsuit gives the proper motivation or at least explains what happened to Suge in the past year and a half," Knight's lawyer, Thaddeus Culpepper, tells Rolling Stone. "It sets the table for real discussion as to why he would just run people over. If the idea is that he was just a crazy man and ran some people because he's Suge Knight, no, there was a reason and we think we set it out pretty well."

"Given that Dre has had zero interaction with Suge since leaving Death Row Records in 1996, we hope that Suge's lawyer has lots of malicious prosecution insurance," a lawyer for Dr. Dre tells Rolling Stone.

Carter, the lawsuit says, had told Knight that Dre and Ice Cube wanted to discuss paying him for using his likeness in the movie. The lawsuit claims that Universal and Dre had paid Sloan and another man, Dwayne "Knob" Johnson, to serve as "technical advisors" on the movie – it claims Knight can prove a $20,000 check was written to Johnson, an amount it alleges is out of proportion with union scale.

Knight, who was charged with Carter's murder and is awaiting trial, has pleaded not guilty.

He also claims to be entitled to 30 percent of Dr. Dre's earnings for life as part of a lifetime management deal (including $300 million he claims he's owed as a result of Beats Music's sale to Apple). The suit also alleges that Dre's many delays of his Detox record were a tactic to avoid paying Knight.

Because Apple and Universal were aware of the contract provision, the lawsuit claims, they did not want to do business with Knight. (Apple is named as a defendant in the new suit.) It goes on to say, "Universal, Apple and Young developed a mutually agreeable scheme that would result either in Knight relinquishing his rights under the management contract or Young gaining the appearance of legal separation from Knight and the management contract through bankruptcy filings." Moreover, it claims that when Sloan was hired, "Universal, through the production of the film, provided [Dre] with capital, employees and the staging area through which to intimidate Knight and to ensure that Knight relinquished his right in the management contract payouts."

"Knight is at an extreme disadvantage in defend[ing] himself or prosecuting his claims herein because portions of the evidence that would help Knight prove his claims are sealed by protective order," it claims.

Suge Knight sues Dr Dre for $300m – and claims Dre allegedly tried to have him killed

Former hip-hop mogul wants a third of Dre’s earnings, including Beats sale to Apple, which supposedly was the cause of Dre’s desire to see him dead, he alleges in new lawsuit


The continuing saga of Suge Knight’s murder trial has taken another turn, with the former rap impresario issuing a lawsuit demanding around $300m (£245m) from Dr Dre and alleging that his former protege has tried to have him killed to avoid paying money owed.

The suit – waved away by Dre’s attorney Howard King – is a response to a wrongful death lawsuit filed against Knight, Dre, Ice Cube and Universal Music. That case was brought by Lilian Carter, the widow of Terry Carter, who was run over and killed by Knight’s truck during filming of the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton. Knight also faces a murder charge for Terry Carter’s death.


“Marion ‘Suge’ Knight’s murder trial has been shrouded in much mystery. This cross complaint reveals why,” wrote Knight’s attorney, Thaddeus L Culpepper, in the new complaint. Knight claims Dre was responsible for the incident in which Carter was killed, claiming he was trying to escape men who were trying to kill him. He also claims Dre was behind a gun attack in a Hollywood club in August 2014, in which Knight was shot multiple times.

The reason for Dre’s alleged animus, Knight claims, is that when Knight and Dre ended their business relationship in 1996, Dre agreed to a lifetime management agreement, entitling Knight to 30% of Dre’s earnings for the rest of his career. The fresh suit is claiming that percentage of Dre’s income from the $3bn sale of headphone company Beats to Apple, and his profits from Straight Outta Compton.

The suit claims that Cle Sloan – one of two people Knight alleges tried to attack him on the night Carter was killed – was hired to “handle the Suge Knight problem” on Straight Outta Compton, and he in turn brought in 100 gang members as security.

According to Rolling Stone, Howard King, acting for Dre, said in a statement: “Given that Dre has had zero interaction with Suge since leaving Death Row Records in 1996, we hope that Suge’s lawyer has lots of malicious-prosecution insurance.”

Universal Music as reportedly not yet responded to the latest legal action.

Pretty much guaranteed if it reaches court the claim will be dismissed.

Wanting him dead, yes. But really paying someone to kill him? Don't think so.
IS DETOX NEXT? Don't think so.

News to me. The story that had been circulating was that the guy was cool with Akon, and it stemmed from the little beef they had before.

Lifetime management deal?  It's crazy to see these interviews where Suge says Death Row was for the artists and they were like family yet now he is trying to allege that he tried to lock down Dre in a contract that would give him 30% of everything he makes for the rest of his life.  This is the same guy who said Jerry and Eazy were trying to fuck Dre?

Dre wasn't a saint, nor was Suge, would be pretty funny to see if Suge gets a big cut from the BeatsByDre deal

alot of people overlook a couple of things. Suge owns the name nwa, and he also has a 50 percent stake in the name dr. dre


there are multiple millions involved (possibly half billion)


that is a hell of alot of reasons to want someone dead.

as soon as they lift the no-contact or he walks, I will get that interview, on camera in person.

I kind of get Suge having the rights to "Dr. Dre" (kind of like with "Snoop Doggy Dogg," hence Snoop going by "Snoop Dogg" when he left Death Row), but did he get the NWA name as one of the things that Eazy signed over?  Aside from NWA Greatest Hits, I don't think anything has been put out under that name.  (I realize that Chin Check was released as NWA but it was just a song on a soundtrack and not an album release under that name.)

Assuming that Suge really does have a 50% stake in the name "Dr. Dre," that likely won't entitle him to a cut of Beats By Dre just off of that, since it's technically not the same name.

Yeah, he just assembles and rehashes known facts over a 10-20 minute period.  Nothing to see here.

that was the reason for the meeting at nwa movie shoot. people erroneously claim it was image rights. I have dres contract with suge, and it CAN be argued that suge is due money for the beats deal.

??? Neither one of those things are even remotely true. Do you believe everything that comes out of Suge Knight's mouth? How could he possibly own the name N.W.A.? That's just fucking stupid. And the lifetime management deal... why in the fucking world would Dre ever do that? He left Death Row and didn't owe Suge shit. Also, kinda strange this is the first time we are hearing of it. After all that shit talking Suge was doing in interviews after he got out of prison the first time, don't you think if he was making 30% of Dre's earnings, he would have constantly brought it up and bragged about it to make himself look good?

It's possible Dre could've sent some goons in to rough him up if he showed up there, they were fly by bouncers and he said rough him up - and it ended up turning out to be a disaster for Dre

Dre shouldve apologized to Suge and reached out for all the bullshit and work together and do music together like the old days - forget the beef bullshit - all that shit is long over, lets do music and make hall of fame records that will go beyond their lifetime

That wouldve been some great music to hear Dre produce for Tha Realest and Dre on Crooked I beats, and maybe a Soopafly/Hittman collabo with Dre on the beats (or Scott Storch I think is who he was usin his beats at the time)

I remember that, that was from that book that Bruce did.
