Last night, Suge Knight appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show spewed his opinions on fellow Compton natives, The Game and Kendrick Lamar. The Death Row founder saved any slander, and instead critiqued their deals with Interscope.
“You have guys out here with great labels. We’re supposed to support them and let them grow, even the youngsters. So when it comes down to it, the deals is still messed up,” Knight said to preface his next statement. “If you look at Interscope, the two guys from Compton — Game, Kendrick Lamar — got two of the worses [sic] deals in the industry.”
The Los Angeles native went on to explain how labels, production companies, and others have their hands in much of an artist’s money. Knight went as far as to compare The Game and Kendrick Lamar’s deals to slavery. “When you’re a slave, you know it was bad,” he explained before continuing with, “it’s worse when somebody make you be a celebrity and put you on a status, and you thanking a person for stabbing you in the back.”
