Suge Knight won’t allow doctors to remove a bullet fragment that has been embedded in his head since Tupac’s murder, TMZ reports.

According to the site, doctors would like to conduct an MRI on Knight to identify why he has been passing out during court hearings.

The former Death Row Records executive is due in court on May 29. At that hearing, his attorney, Matthew Fletcher, is expected to argue that the case should be dismissed.

Knight’s attorney claims the Hip Hop mogul believes he’ll die if doctors perform surgery and attempt to remove the fragment.

Knight is believed to have suffered the injury during the drive-by shooting on September 7 1996 in Las Vegas which ultimately led to the death of Tupac. At the time, it was reported that Knight was slightly injured from bullet fragments.
