Court documents claimed rappers hired gang members to provide security during 'Straight Outta Compton' shoot
Dr Dre and Ice Cube have been cleared in a wrongful death lawsuit involving Suge Knight and late Hollywood records co-founder Terry Carter.
Knight was charged with the murder of Carter after an alleged hit-and-run incident in January 2015.
The suit claimed at the time that the rappers hired gang members to provide security for the filming of their NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton, and that it was those gang members who threatened Knight, leading to a panic that caused Carter’s death.
