Suge Knight

On this episode of Asshole Court, we delve into the menacing figure that is Suge Knight. Part businessman and part gangster, Suge bullied his way into the music industry in the late '80s and early '90s and-- for good and bad-- created a rap music legacy with his label, Death Row Records.

Is he a bad guy? Definitely. Is he at least partially responsible for some of the best rap music ever? Absolutely. Does he have one of the most well-groomed beards in human history? You know it.
