TeeRoy's 2 Cents:
- This doc has it all -- even Vanilla Ice speaking on the infamous balcony incident.
- This is one of those stories we've heard so many takes and perspectives on over the years -- but we've never really heard Suge's side.
- Meanwhile, the star of the documentary probably won't even get a chance to see it.
- This isn't like these other cheaply made cable TV docs with talking heads saying the same old stuff.
Training Day director Antoine Fuqua conducted exclusive interviews with the Death Row Records founder, his entourage and associates. He asks some tough questions head-on, including whether Suge had something to do with Tupac's death.
Fuqua says, “In this documentary – which took years of research, production and labor to complete -- Suge Knight discusses for the first time his complex life in detail. The audience will learn how he built and lost Death Row Records, and his views about the rap music scene. Suge also gives a first-person account and new details about the Las Vegas shooting that took the life of Tupac Shakur and also seriously injured him. This documentary will give viewers more access to Suge’s story than ever before. This is a cautionary tale of one man’s choices and the consequences of his decisions.”
American Dream/American Knightmare premieres on December 21st on Showtime.
