81,882. On the 1996 night Tupac Shakur was killed in Las Vegas, Suge Knight was nabbed for violating his probation (for stomping a guy); he spent five years in prison. During this time, Knight’s former high school classmate and head of security, Reggie Wright junior took over the bulk of Knight’s duties at Death Row Records, the once-obscenely popular rap imprint, which was about to go downhill.
It was a bad time to be in charge for the ex–Compton police officer, and Wright spent much of his stint fighting lawsuits and dealing with an exodus of artists from the label, notably Snoop Dogg. Making matters worse, LAPD Detective Russell Poole’s murder investigation implicated Wright in the 1997 murder of rapper Biggie Smalls, though he was never charged. Furthermore, former bodyguard Frank Alexander publicly blamed Wright for Tupac’s death.
Wright and another former Death Row business associate, Lloyd Lake, are producing a documentary on the crimes, Justice for the Murders of Tupac and Biggie, which is in the fundraising stage.
Wright advances the claims made in LAPD Detective Greg Kading’s 2011 book, Murder Rap, which blew the case wide open and was the subject of an LA Weekly cover story.
Murder Rap, for which a documentary of the same name is also in the works, implicates Southside Crip Orlando Baby Lane Anderson for the murder of Tupac, and Mob Piru gang member Wardell Poochie Fouse for the murder of Biggie Smalls. (Both Anderson and Fouse have since been murdered themselves.) The book fingers Sean Combs (aka Puff Daddy) and Knight, respectively, for setting the deaths in motion. Combs and Knight could not be reached for comment for this story.
