The Game is hoping to trace the man who assaulted his rap rival Marion ’Suge’ Knight— because he wants to offer him a record deal. The Death Row Records founder was recently enjoying a night out at a Hollywood nightclub when he and his entourage got involved in a verbal altercation with an unnamed man, which resulted in Knight being knocked out cold for almost three minutes.
And now rapper The Game - real name Jayceon Terrell Taylor - wants to sign the alleged assailant to his record label after watching an amateur music video he posted on the internet.
He tells AllHipHop.com, "He’s the Knockout Kid. We was looking for him, we found him, and trying to sign him. (Suge’s) not a boxer. It’s not like he’s Muhammad Ali, and he’s been in the game and somebody finally beats you. Suge, back in the day, he had it locked in Los Angeles. 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. 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."
