Music record executive Marion “Suge” Knight, who is serving a 28-year sentence for manslaughter in California State Prison, is warning his rival Sean “Diddy” Combs that his “life’s in danger” following the federal raid on his homes in Los Angeles and Miami.

Suge Knight apparently believes Diddy will inevitably be sentenced to prison, according to TMZ, which broke the story.

“I’ll tell you what, Puffy: Your life is in danger, ’cause you know the secrets, who’s involved in that little secret room you guys are participating in,” Knight said.

Knight also told him to turn himself in to the authorities.

“Sometimes you got to face the music,” he said. “That’s most of the time.”

The audio clip in which Suge says this is reportedly from a draft of a podcast with Dave Mays. Diddy has yet to be arrested or charged with crimes.

Knight said the allegations against Combs, if true, are ugly blemishes and “nothing to cheer about,” calling it a “bad day for hip-hop, for culture, for Black people.”

Knight also said that Combs should stay away from his new nickname, “Brother Love,” due to the implications that could have in prison. He went on to warn of violence: “They gonna get you if they can,” he added.

On March 25th, two properties owned by Combs were raided by federal agents with the Department of Homeland Security and other law enforcement agencies. The searches were part of an ongoing New York-based federal investigation regarding allegations of sex trafficking. A series of lawsuits over the last several months accusing the enormously powerful entertainment insider of sexual and physical abuse brought him to the forefront of the criminal justice system.

Authorities had stopped a plane from taking off at an executive airport, where police officers with Miami-Dade County arrested a 25-year-old man named Brendan Paul, who is thought to be Combs’ drug mule. Federal agents are said to have seized evidence to be used in the investigation.

A report from the Miami Herald alleged that Diddy held his wild (and, if the drugging and sadism allegations are true, terrifying) parties at some of the finest hotels in Miami: Mandarin Oriental, the 1 Hotel, and the Fontainebleau. According to sources the Herald spoke to, the “sex parties” were “so brutal that the young women and men lured into attending them would often vomit and pass out from being drugged, beaten, and raped, sometimes for hours on end.” In several lawsuits filed since the fall, Diddy allegedly called these parties “Freak-Offs” or “F.O.s,” with everything filmed for his (and possibly others’) pleasure, and the lighting and furniture arrangements adjusted by staff to fit his tastes.

As Valuetainment reported in October, Duane “Keefe D” Davis (who had recently been arrested as a suspect in the murder of Tupac Shakur) had implicated Diddy in the murder during an interview from August, as well as one from 2008 that had resurfaced.

Keefe claimed he had attended a concert in Anaheim, California, and then went to a party with Diddy and others at a hotel. Diddy allegedly said he would give “anything” for Tupac’s head in “a room full of Crips” gang members, and Keefe says he took him up on the offer. Keefe claims Diddy was scared of getting killed by Suge Knight or others connected to him.

Knight was driving the car when the drive-by shooting on the Las Vegas Strip took Tupac’s life in September 1996. Keefe said he later met Diddy at a deli where they discussed the hit, during which they agreed to $1 million for compensation. Keefe claims he was in Las Vegas on the night of Tupac’s murder due to a previously made plan to watch a professional fight when they learned Tupac was there. He claimed a member of the entourage, “Zip,” gave him the weapon to carry out the killing.

In response, rapper 50 Cent (Curtis James Jackson III) took to Instagram to troll Diddy, writing, “Damn so pac got lined by brother love. LOL. Time to Lawyer up, shit might get sticky.” He added a photo of Tupac and Suge Knight in the same black BMW in which Tupac was killed.
