Apparently the city of Compton does not one of that cities most famous ‘favorite sons’ coming thru the old neighborhood any longer.

Marion ‘Suge’ Knight, CEO and founder of the infamous hip hop and rap label Death Row Records, has been named on a list of ‘gang’ members that the city of Compton wants to ban from coming together in their city.

Apparently the city of Compton is accusing the hip hop mogul of being a member of the street organization ‘ Mob Piru’.

The hip hop mogul (Suge Knight) says "I''m a 42-year-old businessman, not a gang member. I don''t even live in Compton anymore. This injunction names people who are already in jail - and at least one guy who is long dead."

The hip hop mogul persists he has no links to the gang - calling the claims "crazy" and a "publicity stunt". Mainstream press has painted Marion ‘Suge’ Knight as the ‘Boogie man of hip hop’ for so long, now even the city of Compton officials seem to believe it.

Compton City bosses are currently seeking an injunction in a bid to ban gang members from the streets of Compton, 10 miles (16 km) south of downtown L.A. If approved by a judge, the order would ban named parties from congregating, carrying guns, drinking alcohol in public and would also impose a 10pm curfew.

There have been rumors of different gang ties of artists from Death Row Records for years. Some true some false. Artists like Tupac Shakur (2Pac), Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Daz and many others have always had the suspicion of street organization involvement. Street Organizations are a part of the Cali hip hop and rap scene and they have become a part of the music scene from coast to coast.

If this attempt by city officials is successful, where next? Like Suge says “It’s Crazy”.
