Yukmouth Denies Suge Knight’s Involvement in Assault

Bay Area rapper Yukmouth is speaking out on reports that former Death Row Records CEO Marion “Suge” Knight assaulted and robbed him of $92,000 in jewelry. According to the Oakland rapper, who is one-half of the hip-hop group the Luniz, reports stating that he filed a police report against Knight are false.

“L.A. police have been after Suge Knight for years and are lying about me to try to get him,” Yukmouth said in an interview. “If Suge was caught jaywalking they would lock him up. I never filed a police report and I never pressed any charges. Me and Suge have always been cool — I wouldn’t have had a meeting with him if I thought there was some sort of problem.”

Knight and his crew of 10 people are believed to have committed the crime at a Woodland Hills, California grocery store, but as Yukmouth tells it, the 44-year-old is simply a victim of mistaken identity. “The situation happened with some other people that didn’t have anything to do with Suge, probably because they saw me shining. I’ve spoken to Suge after the incident and we’re good. When the incident happened in the grocery store parking lot, other people called the police and filed reports. The L.A. police have been calling me trying to have me come in and cooperate, but it’s not happening.”

In a separate interview, LAPD Detective Jeff Briscoe confirmed that Yukmouth, born Jerod Ellis, filed the report and pinpointed Knight as the suspect before recanting his story. Following the alleged assault Knight was believed to have fled the scene. He has yet to release a statement on the matter.
