So Suge Knight was shot at the VMA awards. Tragic. Right?
Call me Mr. Conspiracy, but somethin don't sound right. I think this could have been set up by Suge himself, to get his name back out there, to boost his cred. Think about it: we haven't really heard much from Suge lately. Maybe a simple leg wound would get him back out there. Plus, we all know how, in the rap world, taking a bullet ranks right up there with going to prison as a way to earn props.
As rapper Peety Pablo put it: ''That bullet is a tribal mark, orientation, something we all gotta get sometimes -- just as long as we don't die, it's fine,'' Pablo said.
Aside from the fact that that's the dumbest shit I've ever heard, here are the reasons something don't smell right:
- He was shot at an exclusive party, in an exclusive room, at an exclusive hotel. Come on, now. Everybody and they mamma can't just roll up in the Shore Club. And, they sure as hell couldn't get into an exclusive room. The person who did that had to be invited, and had to know somebody.
- He was shot in the leg. Come on, now. If someone REALLY wanted to cap his azz, they would have shot him in the face.
- Nobody saw anything. Just like when Tupac died on the Las Vegas Strip - one of the most crowded streets in the world - suddenly, nobody in this crowded, exclusive resort saw anything. And no one hanging outside other South Beach clubs saw anything.
