A bankruptcy judge ordered that Death Row Records formerly owned by Marion Suge Knight be put up on the auction block to be sold. Well yesterday Global Music Group president Susan Berg dropped the $24million and walked away new owner of the label and its most prized possessions, Snoop, Dre, and Tupac’s masters plus another 20 unreleased joints by him. And we still say after all of this, Karma still might not be done with this cat.

First Suge falls victim to the ass-whooping of the century, and now he’s about to lose his most prized possession, Death Row. Because he filed for bankruptcy in 2006 a judge has ordered that all assets for Death Row Records be auctioned off to the highest bidder on June 24, which will include all the recordings of Tupac Shakur, Snoop, and Dr. Dre. The minimum bid will start at $24million. We can imagine Diddy, Jay, Dr. Dre, and a few others wanting to throw money up to get their hands on those masters. Somewhere Snoop, Dre, and Afeni Shakur are smiling and celebrating. For those who do not believe in the spiritual law of reaping what you sow think again, because right now Karma is doing the wop on his ass. Some would definitely call it justice.

Diddy says that his feelings were hurt by the L.A. Times article linking him to the ambush of Tupac Shakur.
Here’s what he told MTV:
“I’ve been through so much; hip-hop has been through so much; Biggie’s, Tupac’s [families] have been through so much. To rehash the lies and just rumors like that, I didn’t understand where that was coming from. I knew that I would never — me and Biggie would never be involved, or even have any knowledge of that. Because if we have knowledge of something, we the type of people that’s gonna warn somebody, we’re gonna tell somebody. It just really hurt.
Just knowing how people in this day and age, what they read online and what they see in the papers, they just take it as fact,” Diddy explained. “It’s like, come on, I been working so hard to rise above all of this stuff, and to see it now trying to pull me back down.
[But] I stayed focused, I was still. My grandmother told me, ‘Be still.’ No matter what it feels like, be still. And I was still and then the truth came out the way it was to come out. I didn’t jump up and down about it. I let them give the apology and let people go back to the things they need to be focusing on about me, which is the #1 albums I’m dropping with Danity Kane and Day 26, #1 fragrances, Janelle Monae, making this black history. And that’s what it’s about. But it’s important to really deal with things however they come at you. And I’ve always done that my whole life and just always told the truth.”
