Marion "Suge" Knight is currently serving 28 years in prison, after pleading no contest to manslaughter for the death of former rap music label owner Terry Carter.

And he's been eating well behind bars. A little too well.

The rap mogul has blown up, and now weighs a reported 400 pounds. The 6'2" Suge was always a big man. But now he's downright huge.

Suge's daughter Arion visited her dad in prison yesterday, and posted a pic of the now much larger mogul.

Here's the pic:

According to US federal guidelines, Suge is now dangerously obese.

The Center for Disease Control guidelines use the Body Mass Index (BMI) to calculate whether a person his considered obese. BMI is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters.

Using the online calculator provided by the CDC, Suge has a BMI of 51.4. A person is considered obese if they have a BMI greater than 30.

In August 2017, a grand jury indicted Knight on charges of "threatening death or bodily injury" for sending threatening text messages to F. Gary Gray, the director of Straight Outta Compton, on August 8, 2017. Knight pleaded not guilty to the charge, and the charge was dropped as part of Knight's plea agreement in the death of Terry Carter.
