Marion Hugh "Suge" Knight, Jr. (born 19 April 1965) is the founder and CEO of Black Knight Records, and co-founder and former CEO of Death Row Records. Death Row rose to dominate the hip hop charts after Dr. Dre's breakthrough album The Chronic in 1992. After several years of chart successes for artists including Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, Outlawz and Tha Dogg Pound, Death Row stagnated after Shakur's murder and Knight's incarceration on probation violation charges in September 1996.
