Former record executive currently sits behind bars after being charged with vehicular manslaughter. But recently there has been a movement to get him from behind bars. According to Jet Magazine, a GoFundMe campaign has been created in order to raise bail for Knight. As of right now, Knight’s bail is set to over a quarter million dollars.

The campaign was started by KJ Simpson just wo days after Knight was involved in a hit-and-run accident in Compton, California that left one person dead.

“Suge is in lockup for a simple misunderstanding,” said the site. “Please help put together the $202,500 to help get him out. If we fall short we will just put the money on his books. please help.”

Three days after the campaign was created, Knight’s bail was revoked. But on late last month, it was raised to $25 million. Only 10 percent of the amount needs to be paid for release, hence the goal for only $202,500.

But instead of dollars, Simpson has gotten a lot more of something else. As more people catch wind of this campaign, they seem to have deposited their own two cents rather than a couple of dollars.

“Bout time Suge finally gets what he deserves after everything he’s done to so many people why should we bail him out? This is hilarious. He deserves to rot in prison until he dies,” said one commenter.

“I’d set my money on fire first,” said another commenter.

Knight is the former CEO of Death Row records, a record label that was known for pushing the careers of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and 2pac. After the death of 2pac in 1996, everything seemed to go down for Knight and the record label including him filing for bankruptcy in 2006. Since then he has been in and out of the news for various controversies, with this one being the latest incident.

Unfortunately, it looks like Karma has finally caught up to Suge Knight and in a very embarrassing manner. This guy was once heading one of the most powerful record labels in the rap game and is now remembered as a side show.
