Suge Knight Denies Reports That he Signed Life Rights to Ray J

Suge Knight, the incarcerated co-founder of the West Coast record label Death Row, has sold the rights to his life's story to Ray J, TMZ reports. Due to be released from prison around 2046, Knight will be behind bars until he is 81 years old.

Weintraub stated that the deal was finalized seven months ago.

A documentary about Knight's life is among a multitude of projects that Ray J and Wintraub are looking to produce. There is also another project being created about the late Tupac Shakur and the hopeful return of Death Row as a record label, which would be dependent on investors.

Aside from this possible venture, Ray J is now an executive at Raycon electronics, just signed a $1 million deal for investors to join in a legal marijuana venture and is a part of the cast of VH1's Love and Hip-Hop: Hollywood.

"[Knight] opened so [many] doors for so many people, [so] it is important that we represent his story the right way", Weintraub said.

(Complex)Former rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight was formally sentenced on Thursday to 28 years in prison for a 2015 hit and run that left one man dead and another man injured.

Meanwhile, Knight said his life rights - and power of attorney regarding his medical needs - rests with his fiancee, Toi-Lin Kelly.

Suge Knight announced that Nick Cannon has been appointed to write and publish a book about the notorious music figure's life.
