Snoop Dogg Reconciles With Suge Knight on New Song “Let Bygones Be Bygones”
A year after releasing a gospel album and in the spirit of forgiveness, Snoop Dogg has shared a new song called “Let Bygones Be Bygones,” in which he makes peace with Suge Knight. The infamous Death Row Records founder and hip-hop boogeyman signed a then-18-years-old Snoop to his first record deal in the early ’90s after Snoop was discovered by Dr. Dre. Snoop—and every other member of Death Row for that matter—had a tumultuous relationship with Knight and the label, to say the least, and eventually severed ties with Death Row in 1998.
In the new single, Snoop Dogg opens up by saying: “I’m cool with Suge, Master P, Dr. Dre, I’m cool with everybody. But I had to go get that cool with him. I had to go sit down with Suge.” The song is set to appear on Snoop’s forthcoming album I Wanna Thank Me, which is out August 16 via his Doggystyle Records.
Suge Knight is currently serving a 28-year prison sentence in San Diego for manslaughter after killing a man named Terry Carter and striking another man named Cle “Bone” Sloan with his truck at the set of the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton.
