Suge Knight has accepted a plea deal for 28-years after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter in the murder of Terry Carter, according to TMZ. The Death Row founder will be credited time served for the 3 1/2 years he spent in jail leading up to his sentencing. Suge will also be on parole for three years following his prison sentence.
Suge’s prior felony convictions also made this sentencing much harsher. He received five extra years because the murder was considered “serious and violent” as well as another year tacted on for using the truck as a deadly weapon.
According to TMZ, Suge Knight has struck a plea deal in the murder case of Terry Carter September 20. Suge was facing life in prison for killing Carter in 2015 in the parking lot of Tam’s Burgers in Compton. He also ran over Cle “Bone” Sloan,” who was injured but survived.
Suge has maintained that he wasn’t trying to hurt Sloan or Carter and says he was trying to escape after believing that they were both about to shoot him. Suge has been behind bars awaiting trial since the 2015 incident.
Just in case you hadn’t had your fill of Drakenews lately, apparently famed rapper Kendrick Lamar is taking shots at the OVO frontman on Dr. Dre’s early released album Compton: A Soundtrack by Dr. Dre. Lamar is rumored to be throwing shade due to his suspicious verses on the tracks “Darkside/Gone” and Deep Water,” in which he mentions the number “6,” beef, and even refers to himself as the great white shark who senses blood. Not to mention, Kendrick may have already directed some punches Drizzy’s way on his track “King Kunta.” Check out some excerpts below and see what you think.
“You scared of my heist now/But still I got enemies giving me energy/I wanna fight now/Subliminals sending me all of this hate/I thought I was holding the mic down.”
“They liable to bury him/They nominated six to carry him/They worry him to death but he no vegetarian/The beef is on his breath inheritin’ the drama better than a Great White/N*gga, this is life in my aquarium!”
“Feel’s like you’re drowning, don’t you?/About a hundred miles down in that ocean/It’s over, shoulda never jumped in/If you can’t swim (if you can’t swim, if you can’t swim)/Oh my God, where’s a life guard when you need one?”
“Motherf*cker know I started from the bottom.”
