Suge J. Knight, who appears as “Jacob” (his middle name) on the VH1 reality show Love & Listings, has used his famous name to get into the world of real estate in Los Angeles in an attempt at capturing some of the shine of his father’s legacy on his own. He’s also weighed and in and created some beef in the spotlight and this time, his father has made him a part of something happening — from jail.
The elder Suge Knight is still serving 28 years in prison for voluntary manslaughter and part of the show was watching Jacob deal with his father’s incarceration and strict communication protocols as he struggled to pass the real estate licensing exam.
He told Billboard last year about what his father meant to him and how it intersected with his real estate dreams. “My dad was a superhero to me. I just want to make him proud,” Knight said. “And since we were unable to talk, it gave me the ambition to get into something that he could at least read about.”
Well, turns out the elder Suge has plenty to read about – and insert himself into while doing it. It seems as if his father’s enhanced communication privileges might not have been for the best, as he’s joined in on some new Eminem and Nick Cannon beef, about their relationship with Mariah Carey, again. He’s also brought his real estate selling reality TV show son along for the ride.
Nick Cannon and Eminem have been beefing for years, but it looks like with the release of Mariah Carey’s memoirs last month, the feud has been reignited.
Nick Cannon was swiftly released from his relationship with ViacomCBS after it emerged that the performer had said on his Cannon’s Class podcast that Black people are the “true Hebrews” in addition to discussing various other conspiracy theories.
Cannon then demanded an apology and the rights to the franchise he created, before seemingly withdrawing and recuperating from his ordeal.Now, he’s back and has returned a jab thrown at him by the man who used to date his ex-wife and mother of his twin children, Mariah Carey.
Us Weekly previously reported that an Eminem insider shared that the 8 Mile rapper was “expecting” to hear about his own beef with Mariah her book. “Eminem’s Achilles heel has always been Mariah Carey. They had a very toxic relationship. He knows that Mariah is going to say very negative things about him. He is expecting the onslaught, and almost welcomes it.” He wasn’t but it has caused their names to be seen together again after years of a ceasefire.
“Word to the Terror Squad, Joe, this is all puns aside though/I know me and Mariah didn’t end on a high note,” rapped Em on Fat Joe’s new song “Lord Above.” “But that other dude’s whipped, that pussy got him neutered/Tried to tell him this chick’s a nut job before he got his jewels clipped/Almost got my caboose kicked, fool, quit, you not gon’ do shit/I let her chop my balls off, too ‘fore I lost to you, Nick.”
Cannon responded, along with the help of some of his own clique – and none other than Suge Knight from jail by phone.
“Nick is family, and this is your invitation to prove to everybody else what you’re about. Winner takes all. Eminem’s a bi**h,” starts Suge on the track, before the rest of the team starts in.
Suge Jacob Knight then went on a social media rant before deleting most of the posts, in which he counted a lot of the various ways that he thought Eminem “sucked” in defense of family friend Cannon and to show his loyalty to his father.
