Suge Knight, the controversial CEO of Tha Row Records (Formally Death Row), is set to be in the first release of the R&B/hip-hop lifestyle DVD journal Yellow Tape Magazine, according to Billboard. The magazine will feature an exclusive interview with him which is due out on January 28th 2003 through "Yellow Tape Film & Video Productions/Music Video Distributors," The first edition of the quarterly video magazine will be available for $16.95.
The Yellow Tape CEO Romel Mason issued a statement saying : "With Suge, we felt that he was so often misrepresented in the media and that there must be a flip side, after all, he's a successful business man, a father, does a lot of other stuff -- charity work, etc. -- that rarely gets focused on, and the truth is that he probably wouldn't have gotten as far as he had, if he was just what the media portrayed him to be... Love him, like him, or hate him, everyone wants to hear what he has to say."
Regarding the new "magazine" Mason, says that with candid interviews and behind the scenes footage of artists, "Yellow Tape Magazine" will fill a hole in urban media : "On the one hand, I saw that all of these outlets really portray only a few stereotypical images of urban America. It's always the poor, drug using, bang-bang shoot 'em up imagery and that's it. It's very one-sided and sensationalistic, and to me, they never give it to us like it is like being a person in urban America. There are very intelligent people in this culture that are not catered to."
