Suge Knight Compares Upcoming Biopic Series To ‘BMF’

March 29, 2023 | By Kali Girl

According to VIBE, Marion “Suge” Knight is set to begin filming his biopic this summer. The untitled limited series promises to dig even further into his life story than what has already been publicly revealed.

Knight and his brother, Brian Brown, are said to be working closely together on the project and is said to have a similar vibe to BMF, reports TMZ.

Signing over his life rights in 2021, the 57-year-old co-founder of Death Row Records struck a deal with producer Steve Whitney and TSW films. Although he’s incarcerated, he told Deadline,

“Over the last 30 years, there has been so much talk about Compton, me, the inner cities, and Death Row—A lot of talk. Even when it comes to making my movie there has been so many imposters saying they have my rights, or they got the deal—that was, and is, all talk.”

He continued, “I jumped off the porch in my neighborhood at a young age but never forgot where I came from. Most people try to ride for the hills, I made it and tried to bring as many people to the hills with me and feel that I was successful at it.”

In addition to Suge’s statement, Whitney added, “During the golden era of rap and hip hop, all roads led through Suge Knight.” “That era helped define a new brand of music and culture that changed the world.”

Knight is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence for the 2015 murder of Terry Carter. He will be eligible for parole in July 2037.
