(AllHipHop News) The speculation surrounding why Suge Knight was shot 6 times at L.A.’s 10AK Club has been crazy. First people were saying Chris Brown was the real target. Then people said the gunman was really going at Suge over gang related issues. Well, a source tells AllHipHop, neither was the case.
According to our source, Suge was shot over a dispute with R&B singer Akon’s brother Abou “Bu” Thiam. The source claims Suge owed Bu around $250,000, and a fight involving the two actually broke out at a L.A. studio just a few weeks ago.
Things ratcheted up at the pre-VMA party hosted by Chris Brown over the weekend where Suge was shot. Bu just happens to be Chris’ manager too.
Bu is a well-known person behind the scenes in the biz. He’s worked at industry heavyweights like Def Jam and is the co-CEO of Akon’s Konvict Muzik. Ironically, Bu was also said to be involved in settling the beef between Chris Brown and Drake.
AllHipHop has not heard directly from anyone in Bu or Suge’s camps on the record. We will definitely keep you posted as more details about this situation come out.
