EXCLUSIVE: Lloyd Lake & Reggie Wright Discuss Whether Former Friend Suge Knight Is A Government Informant

(AllHipHop News) The controversial legacy of Marion “Suge” Knight includes co-founding legendary Hip Hop label Death Row Records, several run-ins with the law, and a public persona that promotes his supposed close relations with underworld dealings.

Two of Knight’s former close associates are set to explore if “government informant” and “rat” are terms that should be added to the music insider’s Wikipedia page as well.

Lloyd “TaTa” Lake first met Suge two decades ago, and Reggie Wright is Suge’s childhood friend and ex-head of his security at Death Row. Both men are now working on a new documentary that covers the circumstances surrounding the still unprosecuted murders of rap icons Tupac Shakur and Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace.

Justice for Tupac and Biggie will also take a look at whether the U.S. government has infiltrated the Hip Hop community with secret sources willingly to provide information on rappers. In particular, the film will shine a light on Suge’s possible ties with the FBI.

In an interview with, Lake and Wright discuss their forthcoming documentary, their history with Suge and Death Row, all the people suspected of being involved in the deaths of 2Pac and Biggie, and of course why they believe Suge Knight is not who he claims to be.

Read excerpts concerning Suge’s alleged ties to the government from the full AllHipHop 3-part article that will be published this week.

Lloyd Lake:


You gotta look at the Whitey Bulger case; these people that were long-time government informants. You don’t get paperwork when you work in that capacity for the FBI. They offered me that job before, and I said, “no thanks.” So I know that’s real that you don’t get paperwork. You just gather information for the FBI like Whitey Bulger was doing.

Another example, one night [Suge] called me and said, “I need you to go push on Drake for me.” I already had in my mind this guy could be an informant, but the only reason I went down there was to check to see if I could figure out if he really was an informant and to see if I saw any FBI or anybody in the vicinity or in the club. Sure enough I did. They followed me everywhere I moved through there.

Let’s talk about Las Vegas when he’s standing over Melissa Issac, and he’s beating her with a knife in his hand and with drugs in his front pocket. He doesn’t go to jail. This is a slam dunk case. You got a cop as an eye-witness. You don’t have a better eye-witness than a police officer. And there’s no way Melissa can just say she doesn’t want to testify against him. They would have forced her to testify. They would have subpoenaed her. There’s no way out of those cases.

Reggie Wright:


I wasn’t under the impression about him being an informant. I just know he has rat things in him… The one thing is when he was doing his time in jail for the probation violation on the state side. He knew he had a six months tail on the federal side. He actually reached out to the U.S. Attorney that was handling the matter for his six month probation violation and said, “Y’all been trying to get me to cooperate on David Kenner. I’m willingly to do that now, because I don’t wanna go six months. I’m ready to get out of here.”

He had me call the U.S. Attorney. I did. The U.S. Attorney advised me that, “I can’t talk to you Reggie. You’re not his attorney of record. I would have to hear from his attorney.” Which at the time [the attorney] handling the federal matter was David Chesnoff out of Las Vegas. So I called David Chesnoff and told him Suge wanted to do the six months and cooperate against David Kenner… David Chesnoff told me, “I represent tough guys from the Mafia. One thing I don’t do is represent rats that would do any type of telling, so you tell Suge if that’s what he wants to do then he needs to remove me or I’ll remove myself as his attorney of record.”

    And the plot thickens…

  • MrNoName2K

    More conspiracy theories…

  • RichFromBX

    they all snitch – feds offer protection you can’t get on the street. Whitey Bulger is the perfect example. Once he got the Fed protection he became 100x more dangerous, he moved like a dude who couldn’t be touched and for the most part he couldn’t be – he just got too greedy.

  • yesanditcounts

    I’m no fan of Suge Knight. I think he will go down as one of the biggest villains in hip-hop history…and rightfully deserved, but I never believe someone who supposedly wants to do the right thing way after the factor. All of this took place over 20 years ago and no one had anything to say when it was happening. When Suge was making these guys money no one had anything to say……now it’s snitch on the snitcher. All yall can go suck a d*ck

    • Jayson C Williams

      True. But let’s hear what these rats have to say first

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        nicca u have some nerve calling people a rat. nicca u prolly snitch on ur momma!

    • EniggaMA

      so u think they’re just coming out the blue, off the dome with these stories. a lot more thorough dudes than him have ratted

    • Kharifa HartBreaker

      agreed! but lets see what they have to say but its probably the same ole same shit trying to get a lil money off Pac

  • Montezuma1

    I believe it. It’s the music biz. All the top dudes cooperate I believe. Suge offered to tell on his lawyer because the lawyer crossed him with Jimmy Iovine the same way the lawyer crossed Harry-O. His attorney in Vegas didn’t want to handle the case because Suge was telling on a fellow Jew. They all stink including Suge. Reggie’s father was the police chief in Compton. There’s a lot of gray area with all of these “prime time” gangstas. Please believe.

  • trilltalk1

    lol these niggas trying to get money. don’t believe the hype, SUGE did 5 years flat and been in and out since then.

    1) Mighty bold words bout someone as active as suge, hope they got the proof to back the words.
    2) im feeling that this documentary isn’t even about pac n big, more along the lines of some salty former employees trying to get even with Suge.
    3) people don’t respect suge they mostly fear him but regardless he has put in the work to get where he is, that alone you have to respect (put personal thoughts aside) I don’t think he has snitched or ratted any more or less than any other person on his level.

  • R.E Dykes


  • brotha_man

    i guess “obituaries” will be the sequel to this doc…calling someone a rat carries heavy weight. people need to stop using pacs death for profits. if u know something say something otherwise let it go.

    • coldPissa

      If it were only that simple

    • Kharifa HartBreaker

      you right! every documentary supposedly suppose to tell us shit we don’t know they repeat the known facts and twist it up a lil bit tell us an interesting story when at the end its just different assumptions but well said R.I.P 2pac

  • Humberto F. Padilla

    Yo Man! Peeps this. LLoyd Lake is a snitch himself. He ratted on Reggie Bush and that’s when all hell broke loose at USC. Now, he trying to make money by snitching on Suge’s bitch ass. Bunch of clown ass nias.





  • baller187
