Straight Outta Compton swings back with this aesthetically spot-on depiction of Suge Knight, the founder and former CEO of Death Row Records. Alongside N.W.A. member Dr. Dre, rapper The D.O.C., and producer Dick Griffey, Marion Hugh "Suge" Knight started up the record company following the West Coast rap group's split in the early '90s. Unfortunately, Knight's incarceration in 1996 and subsequent legal and fiscal troubles put a unconcealable blemish on Death Row, and the company went under in 2006. Stack that up with serious charges (for murder and attempted murder) in 2015, and it's clear that Knight has had a rocky history following the events of the film.
The positivity to emphasize here is how alike actor R. Marcos Taylor and Suge Knight look. Putting their pictures right next to one another is almost scary, as it's easy to lose track of who's who. With their shiny bald heads, full black beards, and similarly straight-across 'brows, we think Taylor and Knight could totally pass as twins.
One very important person disagreed, however: Knight himself. Well, technically the statement of disapproval came from Knight's lawyers due to the whole "on trial for murder" thing we mentioned earlier. In an interview with The Wrap, attorney Thomas Mesereau stated that though Knight didn't have access to the film himself, he was "sure he wouldn't like it because a lot of it is exaggerated and silly and ridiculous." Here's hoping one day Knight can decide for himself.
