Director Claims Suge Knight and His Attorney Confirm Theory In Fatal Shooting Of Rapper Tupac Shakur
(AllHipHop News) Former Death Row Records CEO Marion “Suge” Knight has allegedly authenticated some volatile information in the upcoming documentary “Tupac Assassination: Battle For Compton.”
According to reps for the film, reps for Suge have supposedly confirmed a new theory offered up in the murder of rapper Tupac Shakur, who was shot on the Las Vegas Strip in 1996.
Tupac and Knight were riding in a black BMW in Las Vegas, Nevada, on September 7, 1996, when they were ambushed with gunshots at a stoplight at the intersection of Flamingo and Koval.
Glass and shrapnel grazed Knight but Tupac was struck four times and eventually died from his wounds on September 13.
To this day, Suge Knight has refused to tell authorities what he saw or who he thinks is responsible.
Suge has suggested that he was “taken away from the money” because of a hostile takeover attempt of Death Row Records, which was worth almost $500 million at the time.
The label was forced into bankruptcy in 2006, after Lydia Harris, the wife of incarcerated drug boss Michael “Harry-O” Harris won a massive claim against Death Row.
Mrs. Harris maintained she was cut out of Death Row by Suge and his attorney David Kenner.
Harris won scored a $107 million judgment against the label, which was ultimately forced into bankruptcy.
In 2008, Death Row was sold off for $25 million to Global Music Group, a company in Canada. Most of the assets were auctioned off or resold.
According to the directors of “Tupac Assassination: Battle For Compton,” Knight affirms their claims that he has been the intended target the whole time, by former Compton cop and Death Row head of security, Reggie Wright Jr. and his wife, Sharitha.
Director Richard “RJ” Bond and Michael Douglas Carlin echo Suge’s claims that Tupac’s death was collateral damage and the first in a series of ongoing attempts on his own life.

RJ Bond and Michael Douglas Carlin, the directors of “Tupac Assassination: Battle For Compton,” stand by their insistence that Knight was the mark in Vegas, at One Oak, and in the Compton murder incident, which Knight is currently pending trial for.
Bond and Carlin claim a new person of interest in the unsolved case has emerged to lay out the entire conspiracy in “Tupac Assassination: Battle For Compton.”
For their part, Bond and Carlin suggest that this is the third eyewitness collaboration of “Compton’s” theory of the shooting when counting Frank Alexander, who testified to the suspect vehicle and Yafeu Fula’s description of the vehicle’s driver to Vegas Police.
