A Los Angeles judge on Thursday sentenced disgraced music mogul Suge Knight to 28 years in prison for a fatal hit-and-run, bringing a curtain down on one of the most successful careers in hip-hop history.
By pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter, Knight avoided a murder trial — and a possible life sentence.
Marion 'Suge' Knight looks on at his sentencing seated next to his attorney Albert DeBlanc in Los Angeles on Oct. 4, 2018.
Carter said she was devastated seeing Knight smiling and waving at loved ones during his various court appearances.
Knight — listed as 6-foot-4 and 325 pounds in jail records — has been been plagued by various health issues for the past few years.
Knight was in the car with Shakur when he was killed during a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996.
Knight eventually lost control of Death Row Records after it went into bankruptcy. »
