Katt Williams has recently done an interview with Suge Knight. They catch up to discuss the impact of Katt’s monumental interview with Shannon Sharpe. They talk about next steps to creating change. Katt is in the studio working on his album and plays Suge an exclusive preview of Katt’s diss track to Ludacris. At one point of the interview, Suge mentioned Eminem too.
“All the people Pac helped, buying cars, houses, putting them in apartments, jewelry, putting them on the songs, being label mates with him, everything right? Nobody never stood up for him. So, once Pac left, even people from his own groups, they started doing songs with his enemies. They started taking pictures with his enemies.” said Suge Knight.
Then he continued: “But at the same time man, a lot of people been wanting to do songs with Pac and some people even did some s–t with Pac and they never…There was only one Tupac project that ever flopped before that’s the one Eminem did, on all the releases. All the rest of them were successful.”
Loyal to the Game is the ninth studio album and fifth posthumous studio album by 2Pac. The album was produced by Eminem and consists of remixes of previously unreleased music recorded by Tupac before his death in 1996. Released in the United States on December 14, 2004, Loyal to the Game debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 chart with 335,000 copies sold in its first week. It was later certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The last update on sales was 2011. It’s probably 2x Platinum by now.
The album’s second single “Ghetto Gospel,” featuring Elton John went No. 1 in Australia, Czech Republic, Ireland, Scotland and England. It was one of the biggest singles of 2005 in United Kingdom, stayed at No. 1 for 3 weeks and finished 2005 as No. 13 biggest single in the country.
Eminem and Suge Knight has never been in a good terms because of Dr. Dre and Suge’s endless feud. In “Like Toy Soldiers,” Em raps: “I went through my whole career without ever mentionin’ **** [Suge] / And that was just outta respect, for not runnin’ my mouth / And talkin’ about somethin’ that I knew nothin’ about / Plus Dre told me stay out, this just wasn’t my beef / So I did…” This was not the first time Eminem edited Suge’s name in the song. He did the same in the song “Love Me” with 50 Cent and Obie Trice. However, Em had mentioned Suge in the song “Bully.” More recently, Eminem has been saying “Suge” when performing “Like Toy Soldiers” live, rather than leaving his name out.
Last year, during an interview bomb1st, the former head of security for Death Row Records, Reggie Wright Jr, said Suge Knight never actually hated Em, never had a problem with him and, he even liked him.
