Before he found himself jailed and facing a murder rap, Suge Knight was one of the most feared men in the music business. A new episode of the National Geographic Channel’s FACING series spotlights the former Death Row Records head honcho’s rise to fame (and fall from grace) via testimonials from the people he did business with.

Some of the individuals who “faced” Knight and appear with their side of the story in the episode include rapper Vanilla Ice, lawyer (and Suge’s “mentor”) Virgil Roberts, Los Angeles PF detective Greg Kading and Death Row Records artists the D.O.C. and Danny Boy.

The episode airs Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 9/8c on Nat Geo.
