Dr. Dre and Ice Cube are surely wishing they'd never met Suge Knight.

On top of the years of beef, the former N.W.A. rappers are now included in a lawsuit over Knight's alleged murder running over actor Terry Carter in a fast food restaurant parking lot. 

Suge Knight Hires Former Michael Jackson Lawyer For Murder Trial Defense

Carter's wife and kids have filed the lawsuit, according to TMZ, naming Knight, Dre and Cube all as defendants. It states that Dre and Cube hired known gang members to provide security for Straight Outta Compton's location shoots in areas with high gang activity. The two are both producers on the film. 

The lawsuit claims that some of these gang members incited the fight and threatened Knight when he showed up at Tam's Burgers, leading him to flee in a panic, running over and killing Carter.

Tam's Burger is also being sued by Carter's family, TMZ reports, claiming that violent crimes are commonplace in its parking lot, so the restaurant should have had security. 

The suit seeks unspecified damages.
