Marion "Suge" Knight pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter Thursday in the 2015 hit-and-run death of a man outside a Compton restaurant after a dispute related to the film "Straight Outta Compton". Knight was arrested on murder charges after running over Terry Carter outside of a Compton restaurant in January of 2015, then fleeing the scene.

The murder case against Suge Knight has ended, with the former Death Row mogul set to serve twenty-eight years in prison.

The agreement also absolves Knight in two other cases, both from 2014.

Death Row Records head Suge Knight pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in court on Thursday.

The 53-year-old appeared in court to enter the no contest plea while wearing an orange jail jumpsuit. The second man, Cle "Bone" Sloan, was left with a badly mangled left foot and head injuries.

The incident, which was captured on surveillance video, took place following an argument over Straight Outta Compton, a biopic about the pioneering rap group NWA.

But at one point when asked by the judge if he understood his plea could lead to deportation were he not a US citizen, Knight joked: "Is ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) gonna come and get me?"

His record label helped launch the careers of artists including Dr Dre, Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg.

"You served nine years for it", Coen said, before Knight agreed to move on. Shakur's slaying remains unsolved.

Suge Knight was facing life in prison if convicted for the murder, but after having some time to think about the mountain of legal troubles he found himself in, he chose to give up fighting.

Knight was released from prison in April 2001.
