How Much Net Worth Does Suge Knight Have Now?
A look at Suge Knight’s present and past net worth!
Fans of gangsta rap or general rap fans from the 1990s would surely recognize Marion Hugh Knight Jr., who majorly went by his stage name of Suge Knight.
The record producer and music executive gained huge popularity in the early 1990s. At the time, he was the co-founder and CEO of Death Row Records. Additionally, he was regarded as one of the central figures behind the commercial success of gangsta rap.
Due to his success, his income and net worth also increased. However, all of that changed following his downfall, which also drastically changed his net worth. So, how much change was there? Let’s find out!
Suge Knight was reportedly worth over $100 million
Knight’s success and net worth at the peak of his career were something else. And all of it was thanks to Death Row Records.
In 1992, the record label went on to collaborate with Dr. Dre and release its first album titled The Chronic. The next year, the label released its next album with Snoop Dogg titled Doggystyle.

Additionally, Knight worked with several more artists and released hit songs and albums through his record label, Death Row Records. Some other rappers that the label worked with were The D.O.C and Michael Harris.
Similarly, in October 1995, Knight made a deal with now-late rapper Tupac Shakur, aka 2Pac, and signed him to Death Row Records. Next year, 2Pac released his greatest commercial success, All Eyez on Me, through the record label.
All of that, directly and indirectly, improved Death Row Records’ financial condition. Celebrity Net Worth reports that the Death Row Records’ net revenues were estimated at $750 million following the sale of 150 million albums worldwide.
When the label’s condition improved, Knight’s financial situation also improved. And Scape reports that the former footballer had an estimated net worth of more than $100 million during the peak of his career.
The downfall of Suge Knight
As of this writing, Celebrity Net Worth reports that Knight has a net worth of $200,000 only. Various factors such as legal troubles, controversies, allegations, and more played in the downfall of Knight and his income.
On September 7, 1996, Knight and 2Pac reportedly assaulted a member of the Southside Compton Crips gang. Just hours later, when Knight and 2Pac were in Knight’s car, a white Cadillac pulled near Knight’s right side.
The people on the white Cadillac fired four shots at 2Pac. Knight was also injured as the fragmentation of the bullets hit his head. However, Knight was able to drive for one mile before getting pulled over by police — the police called the paramedics after seeing their situation.
Both of them were taken to the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada. Fortunately, nothing much happened to Knight. But, unfortunately, 2Pac was declared dead — he died six days later on September 13.
Although nothing is proven, Knight’s name was involved in the theories of 2Pac’s murder. Following 2Pac’s death, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg decided to leave Death Row Records.
Similarly, Knight’s name again popped up when American rapper Christopher Wallace – known by his stage names such as Biggie Smalls and The Notorious B.I.G. – was killed on March 9, 1997. However, nothing has been proved.
These two incidents led to the decline of Death Row Records. From October 1996 to August 2001, he spent time in prison on the charge of probation violation. Although he was sentenced to nine years, he was released early on August 6, 2001.
Upon his release from prison, he got caught in several other instances, which degraded his name and negatively impacted his and Death Row Records’ financial situation.
Things got worse when IRS revealed in 2002 that Knight owed them $6.5 million in tax. In April 2006, he filed for personal bankruptcy and declared that he had assets valued between $0 and $50,000.
Likewise, he also had a debt of over $100 million, resulting from the $107 million he was ordered to pay to Lydia Harris. Harris had claimed that she was cheated out of a 50% stake in Death Row Records.
Death Row Records eventually filed for bankruptcy in the same year. All of the label assets were sold at an auction at a value of $18 million.
Several more legal troubles came forward for Knight, who once had thought to bring his record label to its former glory. But, sadly, none of it happened.
Where is Suge Knight now?
Knight is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence at San Diego-based RJ Donovan Correctional Facility on charges of voluntary manslaughter.
The incident happened on January 29, 2015, when the record producer crashed his car into two men. The crash led to the death of his friend and the co-founder of Heavyweight Records, Terry Carter, and a filmmaker named Cre Sloan.
Sloan was only injured but had suffered head injuries and a mangled foot. After the incident happened, Knight reportedly flew away from the scene. As per some witnesses, Knight had an argument with Carter and Sloan on the sets of the movie Straight Outta Compton.
After that, Knight followed the two upto a burger stand parking lot. As per Sloan, he had told Knight, “Why don’t you leave so we can move forward? You got the white folks scared.”
Security camera footage video showed Knight running over both men with his car, which Knight claimed was done in self-defense. This case ran in court for several years until Knight pleaded to a no-contest on September 20, 2018.
The judge sent him to 28 years in prison when he pleaded that. The 22 years were for his action that led to the death of Carter, and the remaining six years were due to Knight’s third strike under California’s three-strikes law. He isn’t eligible for parole until October 2034.
Paramore’s Hayley Williams Has Over 10 Tattoos Inked on Her Body
All are personal and meaningful to Hayley Williams.
For some people, getting tattoos is the best way to express themselves.
The same is the case of the Paramore singer Hayley Williams. Williams has over 10 body ink, and she once said that she only inked something that was personal to her.
She admitted that she only had weird tattoos, and they mainly were inside jokes. She said, “I mostly have only weird tattoos. They’re all inside jokes, and I’m always getting something that’s personal to me.”

Here are all the tattoos Williams has and the meaning behind them.
The cover-up tattoo of her ex
The Paramore singer was in a long-time relationship with Chad Gilbert. The pair started dating in late 2007, engaged on December 25, 2014, and married on February 20, 2016.
During their relationship, Williams got the initials of his name — CEG — tattooed across three fingers. What was a sign of love to the singer soon became a sign of regret after she and Gilbert divorced on July 1, 2017.

Gilbert had cheated on Williams, and hence, the two parted ways for good. Williams did not want to see her CEG tattoos anymore, so she covered them with three black squares in February 2018.
Related to her band, Paramore
Williams has been the lead singer of Paramore for almost two decades. As a result, she has a couple of tattoos dedicated to the band.
One of them is the logo of the band, a box with three lines, which is inked on the inner side of her left wrist. All the members of Paramore have this matching tattoo.
Williams’s left wrist has two more tattoos. One is a line that resembles two teeth with a gap in between.

The second is the letters “AL,” which stands for their album, ‘After Laughter.’ Another body ink related to the band is Williams’s “WARPED!” tattoo with a cloud and lightning behind her ear.
She got it to represent the storm she experienced on the Cleveland Warped Tour. On the inner side of her right ankle, she has a tattoo of a heart surrounded by patches.

Above it are the letters HHT and a pink razor blade with a banner that reads, “SHAVE ME.” HHT stands for Hurting Hearts Tour, and the razor blade is a tribute to the time she toured with her bandmates.
Hayley Williams’ “favorites” tattoo
Willams has a lot of tattoos of her favorites, like her favorite motto, quote, or song lyrics. On her wrists, she has the words, “Accentuate the positive / Eliminate the negative” with a heart.
The lines are lyrics from the Johnny Mercer song, ‘Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive,’ one of Williams’ favorites. Similarly, she has TCB inked on the back of her left arm with a lightning bolt.

TCB stands for “Takin’ Care of Business,” the motto of Elvis Presley and the TCB band. Presley is Williams’s idol, and hence, it was a way for her to pay tribute to her idol.
Hayley Williams’ other tattoos
Williams has a matching tattoo with her sister, Erica, which they got on Erica’s 18th birthday. It is on the front of her right leg and is an art of “Mirthmobile” car from Wayne’s World that is diving into a rose.
Williams has tattoos of flowers on the left side of her midriff. It is dedicated to her two sisters, McKayla and Erica.
On her right thigh, she has a tattoo of a solid black cross, and above that, she has inked a hand holding ribbons and an envelope with red and black colors. The cross represents her faith, and the envelope represents long-distance letters and calls.
Williams and Dakotah Rae, her best friend, have a matching tattoo of an outline of a heart on their wrists.
Ethan Payne’s Weight Loss Helped Him Become an Endurance Athlete
Ethan Payne’s journey is quite inspiring!
Ethan Payne, best known as Behzinga, has had one of the most drastic weight loss transformations.
Behzinga is one of the founding members of the Sidemen, who started gaming as a teenager. He channeled all his energy into gaming, which aided in weight gain.
Soon, he became famous and was appreciated for his humor and gaming skills. However, since he used to weigh a lot, he had become the subject of fun multiple times.
As a result, he started working out excessively in 2018. By two years, he had a massive weight loss — he lost over 79 pounds.
Soon, Behzinga transformed into an endurance athlete from a mere gamer.
Ethan Payne’s weight loss journey
Behzinga talked about his journey to become an endurance athlete on his YouTube Original series, How To Be Behzinga.
He had always aspired to shed weight, but seeing KSI transform drastically for his match with Joe Weller inspired him. He said, “Seeing KSI step in the boxing ring against Joe Weller and seeing the transformation he made – not just physically but mentally – that was inspiring.”
He wanted to find a purpose like that and decided to feel good about himself. He woke up the following morning dedicated to changing his lifestyle.
He changed his diet and did not have a cheat meal for six months. Similarly, he only drank water and cut off junk from his diet.
Behzinga pushed his weight loss journey by tasking himself to run for the London Marathon for Teenage Cancer Trust. This helped him be focused on training himself.
“Two years ago if you’d have told me I’d be running a marathon I’d have laughed in your face,” he said. “If you told me I’d be doing the stuff I’ve done in this doc, I would have said you’re crazy.”

But Behzinga pushed himself, and soon, he became an endurance athlete. He trained with 2017 World’s Strongest Man, Eddie Hall, who helped him work out and exercise.
And voila! The YouTuber had a massive weight loss transformation and soon shed 79 pounds.
Behzinga’s diet and workout
Behzinga’s diet and workout routine were the main reasons behind his weight loss. Before, his diet included coco pops, Wagamama katsu curry, spicy rice & peri chips, Butterfly chicken, Nandos, Coca-Cola, Pringle tubes, and Haribo Straws.
But now, he eats porridge, granola, chicken, rice, mixed vegetables, beef, and protein shakes. He also takes supplements like fish oils, pre-workout shakes, and multivitamins.
However, he still craved food and his comfort diet. He distracted himself and kept himself busy so that he would not attempt to stray away from his healthy lifestyle.
He said, “Whether it’s video games, admin, or sending emails, I always try to keep busy. But you also need to ensure your meals are satisfying you.”
Similarly, Behzinga’s workout regime consists of weight lifting and cardio. He said, “I’ll get my cardio done in the mornings, that’s the first thing I get done. In the afternoon then I’ll lift weights – and I’ll follow a push-pull-legs program.”
On Mondays, he works on his chest, shoulders, and triceps, whereas on Tuesdays, he works on his back and biceps. On Wednesdays, he does leg workouts and rests on Thursdays.
On Fridays, he pushes; on Saturdays, he pulls; and on Sundays, he works on his legs again. Usually, he takes a rest from the gym on each fourth day.
All in all, Behzinga’s weight loss journey is mostly aided by his diet and workout regime.
