Fans of the new reality show, get to see Knight receive training under celebrity real estate mogul Tai Savet. “Jacob has to lose the ego if he’s going to make it in this business. He grew up around rappers, so there’s a lot of cockiness. He wasn’t taught any differently. To be good, he has to be a chameleon. Real estate isn’t hip-hop, and he has a lot of growing up to do, said Savet who is also a creator of the show.
In one of the first scenes of the show, Jacob Knight discusses living with his famous father’s name, while working in the real estate business.
“My father made the greatest record label on the west coast, and now I’m trying to do the same thing in my own way. You put the name Suge Knight anywhere and the whole world will look … everybody loved my father,” he said.
Congrats to the Knight family.
Suge has received several good news phone calls in the last few days, the first being the news that a $107 Million judgment levied against ‘Death Row’ — that forced it into bankruptcy — was recently tossed by a Los Angeles County judge.
We broke the story, the woman and her ex-husband who helped financially back the launch of ‘Death Row’ received the $107 Million judgment. But, since then she has compared notes with Suge Knight and has decided to join forces with him to get the money back.
Suge is now working with Ray J and Nick Cannon on bringing the brand back.
