Suge Knight has reportedly been hospitalized for an undisclosed medical emergency.
According to reports, the Death Row Records co-founder, who is currently awaiting a murder trial, was transferred to the Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center on Tuesday. As of Thursday morning, Knight was still under doctors care.
Details regarding the 52-year-old’s prognosis is unclear, but just last month, the rap mogul complained to a judge about his health.
Knight’s health has been an ongoing issue since being locked up in 2015. Last year, Compton native was transferred to a nearby hospital where he was treated for blood clots.
In 2015, shortly after being arrested for his involvement in a fatal hit and run, he was hospitalized after telling a judge that he was suffering from blindness and other complications. Also in 2015, Marion Hugh Knight Jr, the mogul’s legal name, collapsed during a court hearing.
Marion is facing charges of the murder of Terry Carter, attempted Cle “Bone” Sloan, and murder and two counts of hit-and-run following a fatal hit-and-run accident in Compton, CA in 2015. Knight has been behind bars since the incident, which stemmed from a confrontation while on the set of Straight Outta Compton.
HipHollywood can confirm that Suge is expected back in court April 23 in Los Angeles. Calls to Knight’s reps have not been returned.
