Suge Knight Old Interview Surfaces In Which He Claims Jay Z Was “Taped Up, Robbed & Gagged” In L.A.
Jigga what!? Jigga say it ain’t so. An old interview clip is floating around the internet in which Suge Knight claims that Jay Z was bound, gagged, and robbed during a visit to Los Angeles. The video is clipped from an interview with Carson Daly from 2001. It opens with Suge Knight speaking about Rocafella and Jay Z. Suge offers a very vague and evasive response to questions about whether he likes Jay Z’s music.
When asked whether he’d ever met Jay Z at that time, Suge Knight casually quips:
“The only thing I know about Jay-Z is that he came to L.A. a few times and Snoop and Dre told him that ‘When you on the west coast, you wrote a song for me, don’t worry ’bout nothin’.’ Next thing I know he’s taped up, robbed, and gagged.” Suge Knight then chuckles at the disturbing recollection.
The interviewer asks who was responsible for the crime. Suge Knight replies:
At that point, Suge Knight seems to imply that he has no further knowledge about the incident, changing the subject to offer kind words about Jay Z, calling him a “good guy” and claiming to like him.
