Rap Boss Suge Knight's Mother Dies

Suge Knight loses his mother on Father's Day.

(AllHipHop News) Jailed rap boss Suge Knight is hoping to land a freedom pass so he can attend his mother's funeral.

Maxine Chatman, 77, died on Sunday, a month after suffering a stroke.

Now her son is hoping lawmakers allow him to attend her funeral.

Members of his family have already petitioned a judge to secure a possible day release.

The fallen rap mogul recently learned his murder trial will begin in September.

The Death Row Records co-founder is accused of ramming his Ford F-150 pick-up into two men during a fracas in a Los Angeles parking lot in January, 2015. Terry Carter, 55, died from his injuries.

Suge has pleaded not guilty, arguing that he acted in self-defense.

The trial was postponed again in April.
