While it is very possible that Suge Knight will spend the rest of his life behind bars, today he made it clear that he does not intend to stop making money while incarcerated.

News surfaced today that the former head of Death Row Records has handed over the creative rights to his life story to singer and reality star Ray J.

At first glance, this seems like an odd decision; Suge is a major figure in the history of hardcore, gritty, gangsta rap, while Ray J’s successes are mostly in the world of Pop and R&B music and reality television.

Despite this seemingly strange pairing, the move by Suge Knight actually could work out well.  Ray J is a star who has found a way to make a lot of money despite not having many major commercial hits.  According to CelebrityNetWorth, Ray J currently has a net worth of $6 million.

What do YOU think about this move by Suge Knight?  Do you think that Ray J is the right man to turn Suge’s life story into a commercial success?
