Suge Knight is also known as the man who helped to launch the career of legendary rapper Tupac Shakur. There are also several theories surrounding the notion that Knight was involved with Shakur’s murder, as well as the murder of rapper Notorious B.I.G. For this reason, he’s been regarded as a mafia boss of sorts.
Suge Knight has spent significant time in jail for a variety of reasons, including probation violation. Knight has also had some money problems over the years, which affected the success of the artist’s on his label. It’s pretty safe to say that Suge Knight is a complex individual. He’s been known for his friendships with famous artists, and for burning bridges with these same artists. Yet, there’s still so much we don’t know about him. Ever wonder if there was more to Suge Knight than meets the eye? Here are 12 shocking facts you may not know about him.
12. He Was a Football Player
When Knight was in high school, he played football. He was pretty good, too. So good, in fact, that he received a football scholarship to go to the University of Nevada in Las Vegas. He played football at the school for several years, then went on to play for the Los Angeles Rams in 1987, as a replacement during the NFL strike. Considering all the trouble Suge Knight got himself into after his athletic career, he may have done better to stay on the football field. Then again, we wouldn’t have some of the music that helped to shape the hip-hop genre. Then again (again), Suge Knight probably wouldn’t be a convict, either.
