2 musicians sue rapper

A pair of aspiring musicians have sued rap artist Marion Knight, a k a Suge Knight, for allegedly pulling a gun on them, beating them and stealing a wallet.

George and Lynwood Stanley, in a complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, said they were at a recording studio at 1635 Cahuenga Blvd. last July at the invitation of rap artist Andre Young, a k a Dr. Dre, when Knight got into an argument with Lynwood over use of a phone.

Knight subsequently pulled a gun, forced the plaintiffs into the studio area, ordered them to take off their clothes and fired a shot to frighten them, the suit said.
