On Death Row?

Rap label Death Row Records will go into receivership next week unless its founder appears in court to answer questions on his financial status.

Marion "Suge" Knight has missed three hearings already, having been ordered to pay $107m (£61m) to Lydia Harris.

Ms Harris claims she was a co-founder of the label in the early 1990s and was therefore entitled to the money.

A judge will take over Mr Knight's assets if he does not attend the next scheduled interview on 1 April.

Death Row Records helped to launch the careers of rappers such as Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.
