Suge Knight Gunned The Fuck Down At Kanye's Pre-VMA Bash

MTV reports that Death Row Records founder Marion "Suge" Knight is today recovering after taking a gunshot to the right leg shortly after midnight at Miami's Shore Club, where a party was held in Time cover-boy Kanye West's honor.

Last night's shooting is yet another chapter in the long history of violence that continues to plague rap music long after it's eased itself comfortably into the popular mainstream. For many, last night's shooting serves as a reminder of allegations that Knight played a role in the deaths of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. That, and the whole hanging Vanilla Ice out a window thing - although even Vanilla laughs about that now.

Miami authorities claim their investigation "has yet to turn up any suspects." Considering that Knight was boastfully megacriminal, immorally wealthy, and reprehensively asshole-ish, UN Spacy guesses that, in fact, the list of suspects may well be longer than Dolza's "dilznick" (as he insists on calling it).

In the interest of a ceasefire, UN Spacy strongly encourages Knight to publicly apologize to 50 Cent for derisive comments he's reported to have made about Mr. Cent's collection of cat's eye marbles. Mr. Cent comes "from an
environment where the price of life is cheap," if you catch his meaning. For His part, God is now extra pissed at Knight, as this may make the hurricane He sent for Knight a messy wasted effort.

In time, an interesting footnote to this story may be an end to the crossover acclaim Kanye West has enjoyed in numerous media sources generally considered culturally conservative. Of course, there's a chance it might elevate it.
