The new Suge Knight documentary for showtime is set to tell a different side of the Death Row Records founder. It includes exclusive interviews and testimonies from both his entourage and close associates. There’s no holding back and no subject is left untouched, including whether Suge had any involvement in the murders of 2pac and Biggie *grabs popcorn*.
Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), directed the documentary and says the years put into producing the film were not just for fun, he wanted to tell Suge’s side of the story. “In this documentary – which took years of research, production and labor to complete – Suge Knight discusses for the first time his complex life in detail. The audience will learn how he built and lost Death Row Records, and his views about the rap music scene. Suge also gives a first-person account and new details about the Las Vegas shooting that took the life of Tupac Shakur and also seriously injured him. This documentary will give viewers more access to Suge’s story than ever before. This is a cautionary tale of one man’s choices and the consequences of his decisions.”
The release is only months after Knight was sentenced to 28 years in prison for voluntary manslaughter for a 2015 hit-and-run incident. American Dream/American Knightmare premieres on December 21, on Showtime at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT. Watch the trailer below:
