Suge Knight Released From Hospital, Tha Row Offers No Support To Kurupt Release

Rap mogul Marion “Suge”

Knight was released from a Miami hospital late last week after being shot in

the leg during a Kanye West-hosted party for the MTV Video Music Awards.

Due to patient confidentiality,

a rep from the Mt. Sinai Medical Center, where Knight was treated, declined

to disclose further details.

According to Miami police,

Knight’s shooter approached the Death Row Records cofounder at a VIP table

at the Shore Club and fired twice, hitting Knight in the upper right leg.

Mt. Sinai doctors performed

an emergency operation to remove the bullet and mend the fractured bone.

Other than a tip that the

assailant was a black male wearing a pink shirt, police said they had no leads

in their investigation.

Knight also currently graces

the cover of XXL’s October issue alongside his newest protégé,

rapper Petey Pablo. In the article, Suge discusses his violent reputation and

his efforts to rebuild Death Row.

Tha Row has released a statement regarding Kurupt’s new album, Against

Tha Grain, which the label has refused to promote.

“Basically

we do not support nor endorse this record. Many songs made for the album were

removed by Koch,” the label stated. “This was not the intended

Against Tha Grain we wanted to release and for this reason we urge fans

not to purchase the album.”
