According to reports, American record executive and convicted felon Suge Knight is coming up with a podcast that he would broadcast from behind bars dubbed “Collect Call With Suge Knight”.

Suge Knight was a co-founder and former CEO of Death Row Records, an American independent record label established in 1991 alongside The D.O.C., Dr. Dre, and Dick Griffey.

At the peak of his career, Knight spent a few years in prison for assault convictions and violations of probation.

A fatal 2015 hit-and-run incident saw Knight pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter which later got him sentenced to 28 years in prison in 2018.

Dave Mays, CEO of Breakbeat Media and co-founder of Source Magazine, is supporting Suge in this endeavor, and he just discussed the program with TMZ.

“More than ever, as we commemorate Hip-Hop’s 50th anniversary, the community needs a media outlet they can rely on to provide a genuine and true viewpoint on the vast majority of significant events taking place in our globe. I’m proud that Breakbeat provides this essential and valuable medium.”

He continued, “I’m very thrilled to be able to enlist the assistance of my longtime buddy and one of hip-hop’s most imposing, trailblazing, and daring leaders to help Breakbeat continue to accomplish this aim. Hip-hop lovers all over the world will be awakened by “Collect Call With Suge Knight,” and generations will converge.

In advance of the anticipated Halloween premiere, Mays told TMZ that five half-hour episodes are finished.

Suge is anticipated to address Warren G, Wack 100, and other individuals in response to Snoop’s claim to ownership of Death Row Records. Mays reassures listeners that the podcast is not just about “slinging mud,” but also about teaching young listeners from his experiences, both positive and negative.

The Breakbeat YouTube channel would host the podcast’s world premiere.

A sneak preview audio-only release will be made available on Apple, Spotify, and all audio platforms today, October 24. Weekly airing of episodes is planned, with audio airing on Thursdays and video airing on Fridays.

The podcast is being produced in collaboration with David Mays, CEO of Breakbeat Media and founder of The Source Magazine.

Suge will talk about his turbulent friendships with Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Master P, Akon, and Wack 100. The one subject he claims he would not discuss is Keefe D’s detention in connection with the killing of 2Pac. On October 31, “Collect Calls With Suge Knight” will premiere its first episode.
