Of course, this movie was being filmed in South Los Angeles and Compton. The movie was finishing up production when Big Suge decided to crash the set.
Suge's was told to bounce and of course, he got to threatening the security. He would throw his hands up, get into his truck and peel out. When he peeled out he hit a man, killing him.
