A new book by former LAPD homicide detective Greg Kading entitled Murder Rap, alleges that both Diddy and Suge Knight had a part in the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and Christopher “Biggie Smalls” Wallace.
The doctor has a new partnership with the auto-mobile company Chrysler. Beats by Dre’s will now be included in the 2012 300 Sedan. Dre will be responsible for the sound system in the new car.
CEO of Interscope Jimmy Iovine will also be involved with Dre on the project.
“Our partnership with the Chrysler Group will set the bar for the way music should be heard in cars,” said Iovine. “Beats By Dr. Dre has always been about restoring the emotional music connection between an artist and the listener, and Chrysler vehicles beginning with the Chrysler 300S will let drivers hear music the way the artists intended, replicating the feel and the sound that artists and producers work so hard to achieve.”
It has also been announced that Dre will be in commercials for the vehicle just as Eminem was.

Dr Dre will now receive 100% of all online sales, while Death Row can only sell the album in CD, cassette, 8-track and vinyl formats as stipulated by Dre’s original contract with Suge Knight and the old Death Row.
“For years, Death Row Records forgot about Dre when they continued to distribute his music digitally and combined his hits with weaker Death Row tracks in an attempt to elevate the stature of their other artists,” Dre’s attorney Howard King told the Associated Press. “We are gratified that the federal court has unambiguously declared that Death Row has no right to engage in such tactics, and must hold all proceeds from these illicit distributions in trust for our client.”

Suge Knight is the latest in Hip-Hop to be hit with court papers.
The former CEO of DeathRow Records being taken to court by one his baby mommas for child support.
Tammy Renell Hawkins is asking for child support payments for their four-year-old child, Taz Maree Knight.
Hawkins will not receive much however, and will likely only receive $312 a month for the child.
The payments are so low because Suge is expected to earn just $1,207 a month.
This is not the first time Suge’s been taken to court for child support.
In May of 2009 his ex-wife Michel’le Touissant, who was also involved with Dr. Dre, took him to court for spousal and child support payments.
She sought $40,000 in support for herself and her child and asked the court to use Death Row’s estate money to cover the bills.
Damn Suge, only $1,207 a month homie?
My how the mighty have fallen……
