Kanye West and rap mogul Marion ‘Suge’ Knight have reached an out-of-court settlement over a longrunning legal battle stemming from a 2005 shooting at a Florida party.
Death Row Records founder Knight demanded more than $1 million in damages and took West to court after the incident, in which he was shot in the leg, claiming he would not have been injured if the Stronger hitmaker had hired better security for the bash.

The case was thrown out of court in November after a Miami judge ruled there was insufficient evidence to prove the shooting could have been prevented. But Knight filed new papers in December appealing the decision.

Now Knight has dropped the case and the pair has reached a confidential agreement, reports
