Suge Knight Says Snoop Dogg and Harry-O’s Death Row Purchase is Suspect | Watch

*Suge Knight is casting doubt on the legitimacy of Snoop Dogg‘s Death Row Records ownership, claiming the Long Beach rapper acquired it fraudulently in February 2022 through MNRK Music Group (formerly eOne Music).

The label’s co-founder and former CEO Suge Knight – speaking to TMZ from the California State Penitentiary, where he’s serving a 28-year sentence for voluntary manslaughter – questioned the deal’s legality, claiming his ex-business partner Michael “Harry-O” Harris committed bankruptcy fraud to get the company from him in the first place.

He says Harry-O was only able to acquire Death Row because it was forfeited when an attorney failed to show up in court, and the 2013 default judgement transferred it to MNRK.

As TMZ noted, Snoop was not involved with the bankruptcy case. He bought the label nearly a decade later in 2022.

But Knight believes the bankruptcy hearing was in violation of the law, and that Death Row will never truly be the same without him at the helm.

“First of all, you gotta look at it like this: I am Death Row,” Knight told TMZ. “So I’m quite sure when it’s said and done, [2Pac’s] All Eyez On Me and Makaveli will definitely come back to me, and the rest of the stuff.

“But one problem with that is: Snoop has a partner, which is Michael Harris. They committed fraud, they bankruptcy fraud. I didn’t lose my company by doing anything wrong; they went in and the lawyer didn’t show up, and they got a default judgement.”

He continued: “I settled the judgement. They turned around and said I didn’t settle the judgement. But they committed bankruptcy fraud which we just found out for sure last week. When they filed for bankruptcy in ’95, they said it didn’t have anything to do with Death Row.

“You can’t commit bankruptcy fraud and settle and do those type of things … It’s called illegal, it’s a crime. You can’t take the person who committed the worst crime of the century, taking Death Row from Black people and try to give it to white people, and think he gonna grab Snoop and they gonna get it back. It doesn’t work like that.”

As previously reported, Snoop Dogg brought the entire catalog of Death Row Records back to streaming platforms in March.
