Suge Knight, former CEO of Death Row Records, was shot multiple times at Chris Brown’s pre-VMA party which was held at 10AK in Los Angeles. An eyewitness told ET that Knight was “pacing inside the club and speaking with Irv Gotti” before four shots rang out.
Irv Gotti is a hip-hop and R&B record producer and founder of The Inc record label, which was originally Murder, Inc. Records. He’s produced songs for Jay-Z, Ja Rule, Ashani, and DMX. Wikipedia says “it is believed that much of the money involved in starting up the Murder Inc. label came from Gotti and his associates’ involvement in organized crime, specifically drug dealing.”
