*Several Las Vegas promoters are reportedly pursuing Suge Knight and the Los Angeles barber who knocked him out for a rematch of their brief fight to be held New Year's Eve on Pay-Per-View.See Also:
The bare-knuckled cage match, according to TMZ.com, would come with a purse of $1 million. The offers came flooding in after the Web site posted pictures of Suge flat on his back and unconscious after being hit by 5'10", 173-pound barbershop owner "Greg" outside of a Hollywood nightspot.
Meanwhile, The Game has jumped into the drama by announcing his intention to sign the barber to his label. "He's the Knockout Kid. We was looking for him, we found him, and trying to sign him," The Game said during Funkmaster Flex's radio show on Hot 97.
According to Allhiphop.com, The Game and Suge Knight had their own beef going, but settled it a mere two days before the 6'3", 315-pound Death Row mogul was knocked out. It appears as if Game sees the whole incident as a metaphor of the older hip hop generation succumbing to younger talent.
"Suge, back in the day, he had it locked in LA. But now, your time comes and goes, and you have to respect the new breed, and now that's me. I got L.A. locked, and 10 years from now there will be a new dude," he explained. "Ten years from now, when I'm 40, there's gonna be a new kid and I gotta respect that dude. Hopefully, the Knockout Kid's little brother don't hit me or something ... or step to me. I don't want no problems with the Knockout Kid."
The Game is preparing to release his third album, "L.A.X." (Los Angeles Times), on July 8. In the meantime, Greg the barber has posted a little clip on YouTube to prove that he is still alive and working in the barber shop, despite rumors to the contrary.
