contactmusic.com -- Imagine what a recruiting visit from Suge Knight would be like. It starts off like "Training Day," with Suge having you meet him at a diner before insisting that you pay the bill, and ends with you dangling by your legs over a balcony until you sign a letter of intent. On a related note, there's only one coach out there who's still harder than Suge (hiphopbootcamp.com (Bomani J.) -- Joe Jackson's Hip Hop Boot Camp. For a man with an image that's "questionable" at best, couldn't they have found a better picture?
