Suge Knight ribs Sean 'Diddy' Combs in prison call, drops ominous warning: 'Puffy, your life's in danger'

Marion "Suge" Knight, the Death Row Records founder and a central figure in hip-hop's infamous East Coast-West Coast feud in the 1990s, issued an ominous warning to his former rival Sean "Diddy" Combs in a phone call from prison last week.

"I tell you what, Puffy, your life is in danger because you know the secrets, who's involved in that little secret room you guys [are] participating in," Knight, 58, said in a call to his team, Breakbeat Media, the production company behind his "Collect Call" podcast, which he records over the phone from inside California's Ronald Donovan Correctional Facility.

"You know they're going to get you if they can," he added.

Before adopting the moniker "Diddy," Combs also used the names "Puff," "Puff Daddy" and "Puffy," and is often referred to as "Puff" by people who knew him during his rise to fame.

Knight's full remarks are available on Breakbeat's YouTube.

Police and federal agents with Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) raided two properties owned by the 54-year-old Combs in March in what law enforcement sources have described as part of a human trafficking investigation.

While he took a couple of digs at Combs, questioning his masculinity and encouraging him to drop his "Love" moniker if he ever ends up behind bars, Knight called the entire situation nothing to "cheer about" and said he was praying for his rival's many children.

"It's a bad day for hip-hop, for the culture, for Black people, because when one looks bad, we all look bad," he said. "That's definitely not nothing to cheer about."

Knight kicked off his podcast in October after teaming up with Breakbeat, the first-ever hip-hop podcast network created by The Source magazine founder David Mays.

Knight famously took a dig at Combs on stage at The Source Awards in 1995, shortly before the feud between Death Row and Bad Boy escalated.

Industry legends Tupac Shakur, signed to Death Row, and Notorious B. I.G., a Bad Boy artist, both died in drive-by shootings before the end of the decade.

Knight was in the car with Shakur when they were attacked in Las Vegas. Biggie, whose real name was Christopher Wallace, died in the arms of one of Combs' bodyguards.... (Read more)
