Suge Knight is in bad physical shape as he sits in a Los Angeles jail cell waiting for his trial for the murder of Terry Carter, and the attempted murder of Cle “Bone” Sloan.

The former co-owner of Death Row Records has been rushed to the hospital several time for various ailments. TMZ reports that doctors want to perform an MRI to see if they can determine what is causing Suge to keep passing out, but a bullet fragment lodged in his head from the 1996 shooting of Tupac Shakur interferes with the test.

Knight refuses to have the fragment removed because he believes he might die given his poor health, according to his attorney, Mathew Fletcher.
