Magnolia, MS – Judging by the singing and celebratory blunt, Daz Dillinger isn’t losing any sleep over Suge Knight’s recent prison sentence. The former Death Row Records CEO was sentenced to 28 years in prison earlier this week, bringing that chapter to an unceremonious close.
Dillinger took to Instagram on Friday (September 21) to express his thoughts on the sentencing.
“Wake and bake y’all,” he begins. “They wondered how the Suge Knight story was going to end. It ended yesterday. 28 years in the penitentiary. You 53 years old. 28 years and you wonder how the story of Suge Knight ended.
“The Death Row story ended yesterday. You wonder how life goes and you wonder how life is. And it just ended, you know what I mean? [Laughs]. I don’t know what to think. Do you know what I’m thinking? Shout out to Suge Knight, Jr. Go visit your daddy in prison. He needs you.”
From there, he starts singing as he sparks up the blunt.
“THE SUGE KNIGHT STORY HAS ENDED,” he wrote in the caption. “NOW U CAN DO YOUR DEATHROW MOVIE. FUCC CUZ.”
Tha Dogg Pound rapper/producer was signed to Death Row in 1992 and contributed to classics such as Dr. Dre’s The Chronic and Snoop Dogg’s Doggstyle. During the imprint’s heyday, Dre grew increasingly frustrated with Knight’s violent tendencies and left to start Aftermath Entertainment. Daz ended his tenure at Death Row in 1999.
Knight, on the other hand, went on to run the label into the ground for the next several years and filed for bankruptcy in 2006.
Knight has been in jail since 2015 when he was arrested for the hit-and-run death of Terry Carter. He copped to voluntary manslaughter and admitted he used his vehicle as a deadly weapon. He could potentially spend the rest of his life behind bars.
