Former Death Row Records CEO Suge Knight will spend the next two years on probation. 

According to, on Thursday the hip-hop executive struck a deal with prosecutors on charges of driving with a suspended license. 

Apart from 24 months of probation, Knight will also have to pay a small fine.  Suge was scheduled to appear in court earlier this week, but skipped the hearing, forcing a judge to issue a warrant for his arrest.  

At the height of its popularity, the Death Row Records roster included rap superstars Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre with whom Knight co-founded the label.
