Inspired by the popularity of 50 Cent’s “BMF,” former music executive Marion “Suge” Knight will narrate his life story in a new TV series. Reports state that Knight is working on a series centered on his life and career in the music business with producer Antoine Fuqua and writer Randy Huggins.
During the height of the hip-hop boom in the early 1990s, when Knight co-founded Death Row Records, he was one of the most influential and divisive characters in the music business. He was well-known for his participation in many criminal and legal matters and for his close friendship with rappers like Tupac Shakur and Dr. Dre.
The TV show will reportedly follow Knight as he rises through the ranks of the music business and fights against competition from both competing companies and the police. His personal life and relationships, notably his divorce from Sharitha Golden, will also be explored.
After his conviction in 2015, Knight has been incarcerated to serve a 28-year term for manslaughter and other offenses. Yet, he is said to have approved of the TV show and to have participated in its creation.
The popularity of 50 Cent’s “BMF,” which chronicles the Black Mafia Family drug gang, has spawned a slew of biopics of other major characters in the hip-hop business, both on television and in the movies. The new show based on Knight’s life is only the most recent instance of this pattern.
One of the most influential and divisive personalities in the history of the music business, Suge Knight, will be the subject of a forthcoming biographical television series. The fact that Knight is contributing to the initiative from prison shows how much of an effect he has even while behind bars. The new series based on Knight’s life is guaranteed to pique the curiosity and enthusiasm of fans of the genre as the trend of hip-hop-inspired TV programmes and films continues to expand.
