1965: Record producer and executive Marion "Suge" Knight, the founder and CEO of Black Kapital Records and co-founder and former CEO of Death Row Records, is born in Compton, California. After several years of chart success thanks to rappers such as Tupac Shakur, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, Death Row Records fell on hard times after Knight spent several years in prison on a probation violation in the late 1990s. He was also sent to prison again for violating parole in 2003 by striking a parking lot attendant.
