Rapper Suge Knight was arrested in Las Vegas after a traffic stop last night.

The 46-year-old hip-hop star was detained on suspicion of possessing marijuana.

Police noticed his black Bentley make an unsafe lane change and pulled him over on a street just off Flamingo Road west of the Las Vegas Strip.

There were multiple warrants out for his arrest, stemming from minor traffic violations.

A search of the vehicle allegedly found a small amount of the drug.

Knight was booked into jail and later released.

According to TMZ.com, the rap mogul is currently on three years unsupervised probation for driving on a suspended license.

Knight’s court date wasn’t immediately available.

The producer, real name Marion Knight Jr, founded the iconic hip hop label Death Row Records and was one of the most powerful music figures of the 1990s.

His stable of rappers included superstars Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre and Tupac Shakur, who was shot and killed back in 1996 while travelling in Knight’s car.
