Suge Knight Threatens To “Beat The Dog Shit” Out Of Rick Ross and Doesn’t Believe Tupac Is Dead

Former Death Row mogul Suge Knight has threatened to beat up Rick Ross when he sees him because Ross put out the song Tupac Back.

In an interview with US radio station 93.5 Suge Knight said he would “beat the dog shit out of Rick Ross” if their paths ever cross. He did state that he enjoys Ross’ music and he’s not bitter towards him, just he feels it was very disrespectful that the Maybach Music rapper would put out a track title Tupac Back when he has ties with Diddy who Suge feels was the one behind Pac’s death.

“I can’t sit up here and say I’m bitter to Rick Ross, ‘cus like anybody else, we don’t know Rick Ross,” Suge said. “That’s a guy who uses somebody else’s name. This guy comes from being a correctional officer. I don’t got nothing negative [against him] personally, I just feel like he do do good music, and you can’t take that from him. That boy got bars, he’s gonna write…at the same time, I feel like there’s a line you cross, and Rick Ross crossed that line. If you’re gonna be with guy [Diddy] who killed Tupac, you can’t go turn around and do a record [called] ‘Tupac Back’…Rick Ross is a grown ass nigga. I’ll beat the dog shit out of Rick Ross for manipulating these people out here.”

In the same interview he was asked about how he felt about people saying he was involved in the death of the Tupac Shakur.

“I got a [4.5] inch bullet in my head. Into my skull by grabbing Tupac, pulling him down. That’s really what happened,” said Knight in an audio clip obtained by TMZ. “Second of all, people know what happened at the end of the day.”

He went on to say how no one actually saw Tupac dead, and the man who cremeted him is now dead too. Suge beleives he is still alive and well somewhere.

“Maybe the question is Pac really not dead. Pac’s somewhere else,” Knight explained. “I mean it’s the truth if you really look at it…Nobody seen Tupac dead. The thing is this the person who supposedly cremated Tupac, his mother wanted done quickly, he passed. So this guy got about three million dollars personally from me, cash. And next thing I know I never heard from the guy or seen him again.”

Nas Discusses Friendship With Tupac, “Life Is Good”

Nas discusses his relationship with Tupac during a discussion moderated by Steve Stoute at SXSW in Houston, Texas. Nas was one of many New York Mc’s Tupac had beef with.

“Pac’s one of my favorite artists,” began Nas. “We saw each other…really got to the bottom of it. What he said to me is, ‘Me and you are brothers. Me and you are never supposed to go at it. But I heard you were dissing me on this new Akinyele album.

“Greater heads prevailed…and we both knew we were supposed to continue that conversation,” he continued. “I was scheduled to meet him in Vegas…and you and Jimmy Iovine called me at about four in the morning, and told me that he might not make it.”

Nas then went on to talk about his upcoming album Life Is Good with the singles The Don and Nasty on it…

“[The album has] the eras that I like,” he explained. “‘Nasty’ was a ’90s kind of vibe. That’s woven in there.

“Some personal stuff, life stuff in there. I tried to put that out there, get that off my chest,” he added.
