Judge Orders Takeover of Death Row Records

sugemug.jpgOn Friday (July 7), federal judge Ellen Carol ordered the takeover of Suge Knight’s Death Row Records by a bankruptcy trustee, citing “gross mismanagement” of the once powerful record label, according to a report by the Associated Press. Knight filed for bankruptcy protection in April of this year in an effort to protect his assets from a $107 million dollar judgment leveled against him in a lawsuit brought by Lydia Harris, wife of imprisoned drug dealer Michael “Harry-O” Harris. Harris claims to have helped launch Death Row in the early ’90s and accused Knight of holding out on her rightful share of the label’s profits. Knight has since counter-sued the couple for $106 million, accusing them of racketeering and extortion.

  • Tyson

    4 ALL HATERS- PAC WAS WORTH MORE TO SUGE ALIVE THAN DEAD DUMMIES, IMAGINE IF PAC LIVED ANOTHER 20-25 YEARS THEN PASSED AWAY, SUGE WOULD HAVE MADE MORE… SUGE WACKED BIG BECAUSE HE CROSSED THE DON TWICE; I LOVE BIG AS AN ARTIST, BUT HE HAD MORE DEMONS AROUND HIM THAN MAKAVELI DID… DO YOUR RESEARCH DUMMIES INSTEAD OF HEARSAY… WIZE UP

  • ReDiCuLouS

    Basically the only artist to come outta tha Row still standing on his own two is Dre. Snoop had a helluva run back in the day…all the way up to “The Last Supper” on No Limit. But his shit anymore ain’t up to “classic” par. Pac was cut short, but he was the illest emcee to ever touch the mic in the West, even though he was born in the East. But I guess that’s how a lot of the Westcoast shit was started…look at Kurupt, Xzibit, NateDogg…just a couple of the names that traveled westward to make it big. Shout out to RBX…where u b?

    Suge Knight has been washed up for years. Death Row is a NO TALENT lable……..

    Evil must be punished and the devil (Suge Knight) is finally getting what is due. I don’t feel sorry for Suge because he is evil incarnate.

    yeah, im sorry too he was an ass to me, im glad that happened to him

  • mr. undisputed the mogul

    IT’S RIDICULOUS FOR ME TO HAVE TO RESPOND TO A “FAGG ASS IDIOT” BUT NEW YORK LOSER I MEAN NIGGA,THERE ARE GHOSTWRITERS(PEOPLE THE WORLD NEVER SEES) OF “HOT”MUSIC ALL OVER DEALING WITH RECORD LABELS, MY CREW HAD A DEAL ON THE TABLE AS ARTISTS’ TO SIGN WITH INTERSCOPE IN EARLY 1992 BACK WHEN THE ORIGINAL FOUNDER OF THE LABEL TED FIELDS WAS RUNNING IT,SO I NOW 70% MORE THAN THE AVERAGE JOE. 2ND IF YOU DON’T KNOW ME PERSONALLY WHICH YOU DON’T, HOW IN THE HELL CAN YOU SAY WHAT I OR ANYBODY ELSE HAS SAID ELSEWHERE!!! JUST BECAUSE YOUR 10 YRS BEHIND EVERYBODY ELSE DO’NT BE A HATER!!!!OR A LIL BITCH!!!! AS FOR THE BLIND/LOST PEOPLE WHO REFUSE TO OPEN THEIR EYES & EARS. FRIENDS CLOSE TO 2PAC & OTHER DEATH ROW ARTISTS HAVE STATED PUBLICLY THAT HE WAS PUTTING OUT CD’S QUICKLY AS TO FULFILL HIS CONTRACT, WITH THE HOPES OF STARTING HIS OWN COMPANY “EUTHANASIA ENTERTAINMENT”. I WAS’NT A FAN OF 2PAC’S LIKE SOME BUT I KNOW HE WAS A REAL SMART DUDE, ASK YOURSELF THIS WHEN HE DIED THE ONLY THING “BIG” THAT HE OWNED WAS A JAGUAR & AN SUV. ALL THE MILLION$ OF DOLLARS HE GENERATED & HE DID’NT EVEN ON A TRAILER HOUSE IN HIS NAME!! WHAT THE HELL MAKES YOU THINK HE WAS HAPPY & WANTED TO STAY THERE. THE ONLY PERSON TO THIS DAY WHO SAYS 2PAC WAS HAPPY WHEN HE DIED WAS SUGE, YOUR GONNA TAKE HIS WORD IF YOU DO I GOT SOME BEACHFRONT PROPERTY WITH A BURIED TREASURE IN THE FRONTYARD FOR SALE!!!!

  • stoneyisland

    It’s disheartening to see how happy you uncle tom ass negros are at the failure of a black man. Regardless to what Mr. Marion did he was a business man and helped feed a lot of black families. Yeah Suge is a piece of shit but at the end of the night he is a black man in trouble. We as black folk have to stop this crab barrel mentality bullshit.

  • Devante

    the demise of deathrow is another sad story for the leagacy of black owned music Entities but truth be told Suge has himself to blame, he became omnipotent and short sighted with his rough tactics and then was blackballed by the industry i reckon if he still had gr8 distribution the row would have had a chance but the past will always haunt u if u did some pple wrong – Karma i guess!CROOKED I where’s the album u promised ?Rage where u at ? RBX ? OFTB ?

  • Dee Reezo

    Damn Suge Gettin Extorted And Runnin 2 Da Courts!!!!!!! Whut Da Fuck

  • Floyd

    A black man should fail if he exploits and rips off his own people. Fuck Suge Knight. Suge is a black devil. He is also an idiot and is responsible for his fate. If he would have kept his ass out of prison maybe his company would not have failed. He loved prison over taking care of business. Typically nigga mentality which leads to failure.

    i heard suge is Gay

    Well,well,well. Like the say all the time, what you do in the dark will come to light. I’m glad shortie is getting his money. Suge fuck him, and now his wife is fucking Big Suge.

  • http://www.sug.com Sugar

    that’s what happen when you either kill all your rappers or fuck em up. I can’t fucking believie somebody finally pucked Suge.

  • The Don

    First off, im a real mutha fuckin death row/2pac fan. I have read it all and heard it all with all the rumours and shit and i respect suge cause he is and always was a G. Pac may not have been happy but it was businness at the row, suge bailed him out of jail and pac knew he made a deal with the devil, look at his interviews he says so even afeni is quoted as saying that.Regardless of that pac and suge had a fuckin tight relationship. Pac never kicked it with snoop as much and never with dre or that cocksuker daz, he ROLLED with suge,all the pics all the interviews, when he got shot he was with Suge, he voluntarily went with suge that night when his bodyguard was driving behind, bottom line my niggaz, is that motha fuckas can say what they want about suge but he kept shit real ,he gave us REAL g’z and real shit to listen to and muthafuckas in the rap game fear him to the point where pple like u all can write shit here and get away,but that fat muthafucka was tha last G after pac. I for one will be sad that knowing that although pac wanted to get off the row and whatever he would never disrespect tha row and he died screaming “Death Row”. I just hope no fagget ass mutha fuckas get pac’s unreleased material and auction that shit off for gay z and other muthafuckas to put their beats and voices with him. So yea, fuck suge knight u might say but in the end it will always be boring from now on. RIP PAC , RIP Death Row, thanks for everything !

    To Tyson: first and foremost FUCK G-unit, im down with that…but homie what are sayin, get ur facts straight man..u should KNOW that Pac died with nothing more than $200.000 in the Bank and Death Row(that bitch Suge) OWED ‘Pac 4million..pac wanted to start is own shit Amaru records, thats why the Big guy took him out..

    To stoneyisland: common man, dont be ignorant, i aint black..but if u take another human’s life or fuck it up..u know whats comin’..he took the greatest soul in Hiphop…trust me he he got it easy, this aint shit compared to what he did. lets hope Karma strikes harder next time.

    how dis guy allow sahm like dis to happen?

    Rags to riches den bck ageeeen lol

  • Gutta

    from one blk man to another its sad to see his empire crumbling after all these years but i dont see how ppl can have sympathy for a person who played a part in killing B.I.G….in my opinion,he single handedly ruined hip hop by incorporating violence into the rap game. ok, so he was gangsta and if you from that environment than thats wsup if thats important to you but at the end of the day its about providing for your family and being a decent person and suge is not that,hence he getting what he deserves.

    Deathrow is not coming back only if somebody is gonna b the new CEO of Deathrow cause Suge is 2 dangerous & nobody can fuck with man cause U will get killed or something would happen 2 u. Just look at Dre, he left or got kicked out like somebody said. Pac the best rapper of all times shot & killed. Snoop left & signed with Master P. Deathrow is the wrong ROW!
