The audience will learn how he built and lost Death Row Records, and his views about the rap music scene. Suge also gives a first-person account and new details about the Las Vegas shooting that took the life of Tupac Shakur and also seriously injured him.

This is a cautionary tale of one man’s choices and the consequences of his decisions.” arrives just months after Knight pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in a 2015 hit-and-run case.
