Suge Knight is going to jail… and he won’t be out for a while!
According to Hollywood Reporter, Knight was finally sentenced to 28 years in prison on Thursday morning for the tragic hit-and-run death of Terry Carter in 2015. Knight ran over two men with his truck while attempting to leave a violent confrontation and although he claimed it was in self-defense, the judge wasn’t buying it.
Prior to sentencing, Terry’s family each addressed the court individually and when it came time for his daughter Crystal to speak, she didn’t hold back, calling Knight “a disgusting, selfish disgrace to the human species.”
So, are you surprised it took this long to sentence Suge Knight? Let us know in the comments below!

The 10 Greatest Hip Hop Acts Of All Time
10. Beastie Boys
Formed in New York City in 1981, the Beastie Boys are an interesting case study in the world of hip hop. We chose them to kick off our list because, despite some attempts, their musical style and the subsequent success it brought them has been nearly impossible to replicate in the world of contemporary music. Originally a hardcore punk band, the Beastie Boys eventually abandoned the traditional instrumental elements of music and drifted into the world of rap rock and hip hop, where they scored a major success with their first album, Licensed to Ill (1986). That was all she wrote, as the band went on to have further success in the genre with albums like Paul’s Boutique (1989) and Hello Nasty (1998). Widely cited as an influence in both hip hop and in the rock rap genre, the Beastie Boys are undoubtedly one of hip hop’s most important artists and a good band to kick off the discussion of hip hop’s greatest artists.
