Rumor has it that Suge Knight's shooting was over a dispute with Akon's brother and VP of A&R at Def Jam, Abou "Bu" Thiam. According to, "Suge owed Bu around $250,000, and a fight involving the two actually broke out at a L.A. studio just a few weeks ago." Things apparently got worse at the party that was hosted by Chris Brown, an artist that Bu manages.
