Los Angeles: Former rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight was sentenced in a Los Angeles courtroom on Thursday to 28 years in prison for manslaughter.

Knight was sentenced for the death of a man he ran over with his pickup truck outside a hamburger stand in 2015.

The sentence appeared to forestall any chance of a future recording business comeback for Knight, 53, known as much for repeated run-ins with the law as for his career as a hip-hop executive promoting the likes of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Tupac Shakur during the 1990s.
