    Very interesting.....

    First, let me comment on the literary piece itself. I'm only half way through it and it is extremely interesting and makes for good reading. However, its easy to get lost as so many characters and names are presented. Now to the nuts and bolts: Being indirectly involved with the music/entertainment industry myself, I must say that the events that this book details are very disheartening and downright ridiculous. I don't understand how anybody could view Suge Knight as someone who deserves the highest degree of respect. American culture has always been fascinated by villians. As a result, our society is constantly crumbling. Anyone who respect this man because of the way he terrorized other human beings is immature and ignorant. Suge Knight is not someone who should be praised. NO ONE should invoke that much fear in another human being! Thus far in my readings, I find that rapper RBX was the only smart one with somewhat of a backbone. He claims to have made it perfectly clear that he signs nothing without research. He realized early what was going on and he exited. He should be commended for that. As for the others, what I gather so far is that they are cowards, as is Suge Knight. I truly believe that Death Row was the worst thing that ever happened to Tupac. If he wouldn't have been dealing with 'Don' Knight, I belive he'd still be alive today. The former mommy's boy (Suge) should never forget what goes around will definitely come around. I don't think anyone would give it a second thought or a tear if he met his demise.
