"The (parole) board also ordered Knight to perform 200 hours of community service aimed at persuading children to avoid gangs."
Now, okay. At first, I laughed at this. Because, okay, here we're gonna have this guy who made tens of millions of dollars, became a hugely influential, respected, and feared music industry executive, and made the careers of dozens of entertainers. And how did he do it? By dealing coke, hanging out with gangstas, and eventually become a gang-lord-cum-label boss. And they're gonna send this guy out to kindergartens and tell the kiddies to avoid gangs? Why, so they can not end up like him -- rich as hell, able to get away with murder, successful, and with a thousand pipe-wielding bad-asses at your beck and call? Sure. Why don't we send George W. Bush out there and persuade children not to be born to a rich oil family, too?
But then I thought more about it, and you know what? If Suge tells your six-year-old ass to do something, you better do it, no matter how dumb it sounds. I mean, shit, I'm not gonna tell him no, na'am-seen?
