It was the subject of the Death Row Records founder’s podcast ‘Collect Call With Suge Knight’.

Suge Knight is disclosing the name of the previously unknown woman who played an important role in Tupac Shakur’s release from prison.

During the second episode of Collect Call With Suge Knight, the Death Row Records founder discussed his former artist’s time in a penal institution and how they were able to work with the woman to secure Pac’s freedom.

“[The] only person [who] made it happen, to let me know to get ’Pac out of prison was a girl named Keisha,” Knight described on his pod. “That is the baddest b***h in the world. If it weren’t for Keisha, you guys wouldn’t have heard All Eyez On Me or all the other hits he did.”

“Keisha made that happen,” he reiterated.
