Suge Knight told TMZ he doesn’t care who shot him six times at a Los Angeles club before the MTV Video Music Awards last month. This was the first time the Death Row Records co-founder had spoken publicly about the incident, and when asked if he’d seen the shooter, Knight responded: “Even if I did, I don’t think that’s really important — who pulled the trigger and who I seen pull the trigger. I’m doing extremely well. I’m happy to be doing well. Whatever happens, happens.”
Knight was one of three people injured in the shooting, which took place at a pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown at the 10ak nightclub; the other two victims are expected to survive as well. Despite being hit in the stomach and the arm, Knight was able to walk out of the club on his own.
“One thing my father always taught me, no matter what it is, you never give up, you never quit if you start something,” Knight said. “When you walk in a place, you walk in one way and no matter what goes on, you leave the same — as a man. I was shot, and I wanted to make sure I got to the right place to patch some of these holes up.”
Knight went on to claim, with a laugh, that he didn’t feel a thing when he was hit, and added that he’s already focused on the future and what he can learn from the incident. “There’s gonna be some times where you might get in a few bar fights; there’s gonna be some times where you might get a few shots. But if you’re able to survive those shots, you’re supposed to make yourself stronger and be more positive, more aggressive with the people you want to deal with. And that’s the page I’m really on.”
In 2005, Knight was shot during another pre-VMA party hosted by Kanye West. He was struck in the leg when a shooter opened fire in the VIP room of the Shore Club hotel in Miami.
