The rap mogul faces a 28-year prison sentence as part of his plea bargain. Jury selection in the murder trial had been set to start on Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court. He will be formally sentenced on October 4.

Knight, 53, had faced a murder charge and has been in jail since turning himself in shortly after the January 29, 2015, collision in which his red Ford Raptor pickup plowed into Terry Carter, 55, and 51-year-old Cle "Bone" Sloan, a technical adviser on the movie, who survived. Knight had gotten into a fist fight with Cle "Bone" Sloan, who was used as a consultant for the N.W.A biopic "Straight Outta Compton". 22 years will be served for the charge of vehicular manslaughter, while an additional 6 years was added due to a third strike violation.

The 53-year-old, born Marion Knight, was originally charged with murder after he ran over Terry Carter, a hip-hop record label owner, after an altercation in the parking lot of a hamburger restaurant in Compton, Calif.
