(AllHipHop News) Imprisoned rap mogul Marion “Suge” Knight appeared in a courtroom yesterday (February 22), to protest the conditions he is being jailed under.
Suge once again complained to a judge that the extreme circumstances surrounding his incarceration are hindering his ability to defend himself against murder charges.
The Death Row Records co-founder insists that “child murderers” and “cop killers” at the same correctional institution were being treated like kings.
Meanwhile, Suge said that he lacks the adequate resources and access to defend himself against the charges, relating to a deadly incident involving his nemesis and former partner, Dr. Dre.
Suge ran the men over during an argument in the parking lot of a hamburger restaurant in Los Angeles, during a taping for a commercial for the movie “Straight Outta Compton.”
Knight, who has pleaded not guilty, claims that he feared for his life because Dr. Dre had put a hit on him. Suge alleges that the men were coming to kill him as he attempted to race out of the parking lot.
Suge claims he has not been allowed to see his attorneys on the weekend, like other inmates. He has not been able to see any of his family members of the past two years.
Prosecutors have argued that the extreme security is in place to ensure the safety of the entire prison.
Suge is due back in court on March 27 for another pretrial hearing.
