The recent reports of hip hop mogul and owner of Death Row Records, Marion ‘Suge’ Knight, being evicted from his Los Angeles condominium are another example of false reporting on Suge Knight.

The hip hop mogul was not evicted, he moved. Various web sites and print media claim sources saying things and seeing things that they do not verify, and others run with it and before you know it the ‘snowball’ effect has once again made not only the hip hop mogul ‘Suge’ Knight but all of hip hop journalism look bad AGAIN.

We can understand the mainstream media seeking ways to make hip hop and our iconic figures look bad (i.e. Marion ‘Suge’ Knight) but it seems some hip hop web sites are so eager to get some headline out they do not look into things before they report them.

ThugLifeArmy.com contacted the PR representative for Marion ‘Suge’ Knight, Jonathan Wolfson, to see what was going on with the hip hop mogul and we were told "Suge Knight was not evicted from his Wilshire condominium'' Jonathan told us. “I don''t understand how his move could have been misunderstood as an eviction. He is currently living at an undisclosed location in Malibu."

Earlier this month articles on the hip hop entrepreneur Marion ‘Suge’ Knight were saying he wanting to leave his legendary west coast Death Row Records behind him and they were not 100-percent accurate.

In that case it turned out that, after talking to Suge Knights PR Rep Jonathan Wolfson that “Suge is trying to file a Chapter 7 in order to liquidate his publishing. He's fine with Death Row being restructured through a Chapter 11. It's his publishing ownership that he wants to liquidate in order to pay off Death Row's debts and move on with his life.”

Hopefully web sites and print media will someday realize that Marion ‘Suge’ Knight is just a man and not be so quick to try to judge or expect the worst with every move the man makes; it’s called practice responsible journalism and reporting.

About Marion ‘Suge’ Knight:
