It turns out that the fatal hit and run Suge Knight was involved in two weeks ago had something to do with Straight Outta Compton after all.
When a previous trailer for the N.W.A. biopic premiered some time ago, there’s a brief shot of someone getting a beat down in a studio from a man who looks an awful lot like Suge. He received word that Dr. Dre, who’s co-producing the flick, used his likeness in the film, which Dre had never talked to Suge about, and the former Death Row Records CEO drove over to the set in an attempt to negotiate with Dre, according to TMZ. That meet-up never happened because of the ensuing fight between Suge, Terry Carter, who organized the meeting, and Cle “Bone” Sloane, both of whom he ran over, allegedly taking Carter’s life.
Suge has been charged with Carter’s murder, the attempted murder of Sloane, and hit and run. His case is getting weaker and weaker by the day. Check out the trailer and see for yourself around the 3:21 mark.
