I was watching an old skool doc about Deathrow records, the whole interscope/time warner coupe, explaining everything from the beginning with Mike Harris n Suge Knight, the relations with David Kenner etc up untill the end where Suge got 9 years for a prohibition violation, the doc ended with a bro saying that Deathrow was sold for 400 million dollars and that the 'feds' don't investigate how Suge Knight got Harris his money/starting capital for Deathrow/God Father ent cause that would mean they would not only have to jail Deathrow fellas but also folks from Interscope, Time warner and so on

So I was wondering if any of you have more insight on this, are there any new docs regarding this subject, I heard Harris got his money back? are there any investigations regarding David Kenner etc?

lol the oldskool doc was called 'welcome to deathrow'
