Seventeen years after Tupac Shakur's death, Suge Knight remains loyal to his former Death Row comrade. TMZ caught up with the notorious music vet in Malibu yesterday (Oct. 31) where he swiftly likened Jimmy Iovine to a Ku Klux Klan member, made a bid for 'Pac to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and took a shot at Diddy.  

The TMZ camera guy asked Knight to comment on Kanye West postponing Yeezus tour dates, but Suge had another topic in mind. "He wants Kim Kardashian to have a star on Hollywood Boulevard, right? I think Tupac should have a star on there," Knight said. "I mean, s--t, Puffy got a star on [the Walk of Fame], only thing he did was dance." 

And if the late MC doesn't get a star? Expect an riot, Knight joked. "If they don't hurry and put Tupac on the Walk of Fame, all the Tupac fans and all the homies are gonna start going down there and scratching all the other names off; they might just remove Elvis and put Tupac there."

Thankfully, the vandalism isn't likely to happen. The Walk of Fame Committee announced in June that Shakur would receive a star alongside Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez, Rick Springfield, Orlando Bloom, and comedian Phil Hartman who died in 1998.
