In the final days of 2012, comedian Katt Williams was filmed by TMZ, just hours after being released from jail on child endangerment charges. The Friday After Next star and Diplomats affiliate was then accompanied by former Hip Hop mogul Suge Knight, who was caught on tape fighting outside of Los Angeles, California’s Club Eden.
AllHipHop.com recently asked Katt about his relationship with Suge. In addition to co-founding and being the CEO of Death Row Records, Knight, a Compton, California native also managed artists including Tupac, DJ Quik and The D.O.C. “I didn’t realize that me knowing him was going to be taken in all the different directions that it has been taken to,” said Williams. “We have business together, and number one, I respect what he thinks musically, first and foremost. I know from the things that I have been through and the entities that are mad at me, that your team is sometimes judged by your team.”
Although Suge Knight has been criticized for theft and violence by some high-profile rappers including Snoop Dogg and Daz Dillinger, Katt stressed the solidarity. “I know that he has never done anything wrong to me, and he actually came through for me at a time when I didn’t think that anybody was going to step up. And he did.”
AllHipHop.com also asked Katt about his status with Dipset. Read the full interview.
