Suge Knight: Bankruptcy a “last meal” for Death Row

Marion “Suge” Knight broke his silence today, saying in a statement that his declaration of bankruptcy will be a “last meal” for Death Row records, the imprint that helped make Snoop, Dr. Dre. and Tupac icons. 2pac, Snoop, and Suge.jpg

Of course, the move comes as yet another chess move to stymie the efforts of Lydia and Michael Harris, a now-divorced couple who helped found Death Row who are attempting to collect on a $107 million judgment from Knight.

Amusingly, Knight’s offers a curious take on the public perception of a company like Death Row Records.

“For the last few years there’s been a stigma attached to Death Row,” Knight said in a statement issued through spokesman Jonathan Wolfson. “People like the Harrises have been coming out of the woodwork and it’s been like a dark cloud hanging over me. I’ve decided that I’m serving Death Row its last meal. I’m setting a new table.”

The Harrisses are the stigma?

Funny, we thought it was that the company is called Death Row, and because its biggest recording artist was gunned down in a still-unsolved drive-by?

I guess we had that all wrong…
