Knight: An End To Death Row?
DEATH ROW RECORDS founder MARION 'SUGE' KNIGHT is moving on with life - and leaving the notorious West Coast hip hop label in the past.
The 42-year-old rap mogul - who is responsible for the success of rap stars SNOOP DOGG and the late TUPAC SHAKUR - is closing down the Los Angeles-based Death Row Records after a consultation with local church leaders convinced him to leave the troubled label behind.
Knight tells PageSix.com, "They talked about the same thing, and it felt like they were talking straight to me. I don't want to be tied up with this for years. I want to move on with my life in a more positive direction.
"You can get rich with the devil's money, but you can only be happy with God's money."
Knight filed bankruptcy papers for Death Row Records last April (06), after suffering debts of $137.4 million (GBP70.4 million).
