Frank Alexander's Secret Tape Recordings in the Aftermath of Tupac's Murder

By Michael Douglas Carlin

In his book, "Got Your Back," Frank Alexander says, "I began keeping a tape recorder next to the phone. I recorded dozens and dozens of conversations, with Reggie, Death Row attorneys David Kenner and Milton Grimes, Detective Brent Becker from Las Vegas, as well as other members of security."

I have listened to some of those recordings. They paint a much different picture of the atmosphere at Death Row Records in the aftermath of the murder. Suge Knight was fighting for his freedom in probation hearings. There is a very telling conversation between Frank and David Kenner that shows the deck is stacked against Suge Knight. Kenner tells of a police report entered into evidence by Compton Police where Frank says Suge was kicking Orlando Anderson. Frank, according to the report as read by Kenner, is also providing all of the names of the participants that night. Frank denies having ever spoken to Compton Police and also denies having ever said these things about who was involved in the scuffle.

In "Got Your Back," Frank wrote, "Kenner was reading one lie after another. Not the lie about the chain, but an entire report filled with things I did not say. It was said I named names of those involved in the fight at the MGM. It said I gave the police their gang affiliations. I don't even know the real names of Suge's homeboys, nor would I give two shits about their gang affiliations. He kept reading me lies."

Keep in mind that Kenner said, "the report I am reading came from Compton PD."

Frank Alexander again writes, "We hung up the phone. I had this sinking feeling. I didn't understand what has happening."

There are many other telephone conversations that warn Frank not to get subpoenaed to testify in the hearing. Frank's life is threatened. Finally there is a conversation with Norris Anderson where it is relayed to Frank that Suge is cool with him and that he doesn't need to worry.

There is a wholesale manipulation of testimony that is painted by the tapes. Frank is asked to tell lies on the witness stand and he refuses to do this. His lie to Brent Becker about the Lakewood Mall incident is also exposed by these recordings. What is clear from this is that the Compton Police Department were behind getting Suge Knight's probation violated. David Kenner is the one that entered the MGM Videotape into evidence against Suge Knight.

Michael Moore talks about a conversation he had with Reggie Wright Sr. about who would run Death Row Records if something happens to Suge Knight. Senior speculates that his son would end up running the record label which, in fact, ends up happening. Compton Police were responsible for giving the events set into motion a little push. They were in Las Vegas on the night of September 7, 1996 - the night Tupac and Suge Knight were greenlit for murder. They steered the investigation. They were also seen at the Petersen Museum on the night Biggie Smalls was murdered.

Compton Police were brought down because a gun traced to them is used to shoot Long Beach Police Officer Brian Watt. That leads to an internal affairs report that uncovers over 80 kilos of missing cocaine, over 1400 missing firearms, and involvement in many other criminal activities. There was a vote on the eve of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's taking over the responsibility policing Compton. It was decided that all of the police officers in Compton be absorbed into the Sheriff's instead of being disbanded.

Compton Police can be traced into the Sheriff's all the way to influence the current legal troubles facing Suge Knight right now. They conspired against him back then and they continue to conspire against him now.
