Ray J Trusted with Suge Knight’s Life Rights

Vince Staples comments about the legendary status of Ray J have been making waves on Twitter after news that the singer-turned-entrepreneur has purchased the life rights of Death Row Records founder Suge Knight. Hoping to capitalize off his name to provide for his family, the former CEO is trusting Ray J to make him millions.

While currently serving a 28 year sentence for voluntary manslaughter in San Diego, Suge Knight reached out to Ray J to sign over his life rights. The agreement has granted the entrepreneur and long-time friend the rights to tell his story through several forms of media like print, film, and television. According to TMZ, a documentary on Suge Knight and Death Row Records is already in production along with a feature on Tupac Shakur. However, the Tupac film is reportedly in limbo as they currently lack the capital to continue the project. Having founded two consumer electronics companies with multi-million dollar values, it’s no wonder Ray J was selected to take on Suge Knight’s task

The Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star won’t have to struggle for material as Suge Knight has a storied past. The record producer/music executive first found work in the entertainment industry as a concert promoter and bodyguard for celebs. Eventually he cashed out by obtaining the royalties from Vanilla Ice’s hit “Ice Ice Baby”. Later, he went on to found Death Row Records, which went bankrupt in 2006. If Ray J’s attempts to work some magic for the former mogul are lucrative, Suge Knight and his family could be living lavish for generations to come.

Everyone say hey to Zaya ❤️❤️

A post shared by The Neighborhood Talk LLC (@theneighborhoodtalk2) on

Wade recently appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to promote the upcoming ESPN documentary D Wade: Life Unexpected. Following a clip from the documentary, he shared that his middle child, formerly known as Zion, now identifies as “her” and goes by the name Zaya. 

As DeGeneres praised him for his support of Zaya, Wade replied, “Me and my wife Gabrielle Union are proud parents of a child in the LGBTQ+ community. And we are proud allies as well. We take our roles and our responsibility as parents very seriously.”

He went on to share that Zaya expressed her desire to live her truth at 9-years-old. “I don’t know if everyone knows, originally named Zion, born as a boy — came home and said, ‘Hey, I want to talk to you guys. I think going forward I’m ready to live my truth. I want to be referenced as she and her, I would love for you guys to call me Zaya,” he explained.

Immediately the parents began to educate themselves and seek advice from members of the LGBTQ+ community, Union reaching out to the cast of the popular FX series, Pose. For Wade, it’s all about giving her “the best opportunity to be her best self” while preparing her to live life openly.

According to Wade, “Once Zaya came home and said, ‘I want you to call me Zaya and I’m ready to take on this,’ I looked at her and said, ‘You are a leader. And this is our opportunity to allow you to be a voice.’ Right now it’s through us, because she’s 12 years old, but eventually, it will be through her.”

For more on his journey post-career and as the father of an openly gay pre-teen, tune in to D Wade: Life Unexpected. The ESPN documentary airs Sunday, February 23rd.
