Knight struck a deal with prosecutors, pleading no contest to running over and killing 55-year-old businessman Terry Carter and capping a dramatic, protracted legal saga.

He helped launch some of rap's biggest acts, including Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.

Knight, the co-founder of Death Row records, cycled through more than a dozen attorneys on the road to his sentencing hearing.

Suge has maintained that he wasn't trying to hurt Sloan or Carter and says he was trying to escape after believing that they were both about to shoot him.

Members of Terry Carter's family addressed the court including daughter Crystal, who called Knight "a disgusting, selfish disgrace to the human species".

Knight struck a surprise plea deal with prosecutors on September 20, just a few days before he was to have stood trial for murder and attempted murder.

If you were born after 2001 then you probably have never scoured through the dregs of the internet for conspiracy theories about what happened to Tupac Shakur, one of the best rappers ever, who was tragically killed while driving with Suge Knight in Vegas in 1996.

The expected prison time is in relation to a January 2015 incident that occurred near the set of a commercial being shot for the N.W.A biopic Straight Outta Compton.

Knight, who was out on bail in a robbery case at the time, fled the scene but was later arrested.

Sloan had worked as an adviser on the film, which portrayed Knight in his early days as the co-founder of Death Row Records.

Knight served five years in prison for assault and federal weapons violations and, after his release in 2001, spent another 10 months behind bars for violating parole by hitting a Hollywood nightclub valet. That doubles the manslaughter sentence and adds an extra six years.

As part of the agreement to plead no contest to a single count of voluntary manslaughter, all other charges in the case were dropped.
