    • how would you know the deal? whats so bad about suge ? smh

      of course he will beat it, murder is the easiest charge to beat.

      • You kno das hella easy ????

      • Ditto fam

      • Aye fam, plus theres no citizen brave nuff to vote against him on his turf sheeid ????

      • dam rite. is that ugly kid comin out today or …?

      • wha you cant sleep, u worried ? lolllllllll yea man lil rat is ‘comin out’ today.solo, course.

      • hmmmmm………

      • Just cover your ears, you’ll be fine

      • Must be a fan…hmmm you keep thinking that…he’s not God and a cowardly one at that…running over his ‘friend’ dumping his truck and running only giving himself up on the advice of his shyster lawyer yeah hes a real man isn’t he! It’s only a matter of time before that ‘luck’ will eventually run out…and this just might be it let’s see…

      • hes done a lotta good s* in his life, so i respect him- not anyones fan tho….but objectivly speaking, noone knows the true story,you know what media told you- and to accuse him and put him down without knowin so, is ignorant,
        yea he is a good man , and he does not deserve the bs. you could at least wait to know full story before jumpin the gun

      • maybe so…so we’ll wait and see….

      • saying that man shouldnt be judged before whole story is out is not being a ‘fan’ nor does it say i know him better than you; NOT knowing is what im emphesizing. sheep is person followin news, not person aware of options and possibilites.and even if you believe he was guilty of sh*t in the past, that still doesnt make him gulity in this case.
        noone has to know him personally to respect his work in the industry, that just speaks for itself.

  4. They couldnt wait for this day smhh
    Free Suge ;(

    • This guy is an idiot, stay away from trouble and you will be ok
