Ray J now owns the rights to Suge Knight’s life story

The former rap executive's mini-me has reacted to reports claiming Knight signed away his life rights to veteran crooner Ray J.

Suge Knight wants to keep the cash coming in while he's behind bars and he's reportedly enlisted Ray J to help him. There are even talks of reviving Death Row, but apparently it would take more investors-something Suge is hoping Ray can look into more and potentially secure eventually.

Knight is now behind bars serving time on a 28-year plea deal for his murder case. The latest of those moves is selling off his life rights to Ray J, leaving him in charge of making business decisions on his behalf.

The reported sale isn't as unusual as it looks: Knight has known Ray J, an R&B artist and entrepreneur, for years, and reportedly trusts him to turn a nice profit from the story of one of the most influential and consequential figures in hip-hop history.

Currently, a documentary for Knight and Death Row Records is being developed, another one on Tupac Shakur and ambitions to bring the label back. (Complex)Former rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight was formally sentenced on Thursday to 28 years in prison for a 2015 hit and run that left one man dead and another man injured.
