Freedom is over for disgraced rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight. As has learned, the shamed American record producer will likely be sentenced to 28 years in prison this Thursday — almost four years after he killed one man and injured another.

In 2015, one year after he was charged with second-degree robbery, the Death Row Records co-founder ran into the men with his truck outside a Compton burger stand. The incident resulted in the death of Heavyweight Records co-founder Terry Carter and the hospitalization of another man.

The entire incident was caught on camera.

This September 20, in relation to that crime, Knight pled no contest to voluntary manslaughter — dodging his murder and attempted murder charges.

Now, at 53, the once-iconic hip-hop businessman will likely spend the rest of his days behind bars.

Marion "Suge" Knight will be sentenced this Thursday.
