Marion “Suge” Knight was once the most powerful man in the music industry. He was also the most reviled, and in some cases, the most feared. Legendary for the staggering success of his Death Row Records in the 1990s, the label that dominated the charts starting with the release of Dr. Dre’s groundbreaking The Chronic, and created megastars out of Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg, Knight was perhaps more well known for his violent tendencies. Before he was Suge Knight, he was Sugar Bear, the hulking football and track star, the child of Compton, raised tough, who was taught never to steal, only to take. His father, his uncles, and then Suge ruled the streets of Compton. No fear, no remorse, no pity … that was the family way. In a memoir organized around 100 fights of Suge’s life, and written in the style that only a writer with the skill of Neil Strauss could deliver, Your Pain is My Joy will be a searing tale of money, drugs, violence, gangs, and hip hop. In Your Pain is My Joy, Suge finally speaks openly about the murders of Tupac and Biggie, his legendary beefs with Diddy and Snoop Dogg, the high stakes battleground that was Death Row Records, and what it was like when all he worked for was gone. Is Suge sorry? Does he have regret? You be the judge.
