'Suge' drops lawsuit against Kanye

Miami - Rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight has dropped an appeal in a lawsuit he filed against hip-hop star Kanye West over a 2005 shooting in Miami.

Knight's attorney filed the dismissal last month in Miami federal court.

The judge had granted a summary judgment in November for West and his companies, but Knight appealed the decision in December.

Knight was seeking millions of dollars in damages from West.

Knight was shot in the leg at a 2005 Miami Beach party hosted by West, whom Knight blames for lax security.

The shooter has never been identified and the case is unsolved. The judge concluded there was no evidence that a shooting at the party was foreseeable.

Both sides have reached a confidential agreement to settle court costs.
