Eminem was on Suge Knight's hit list twice, the rapper's ex-bodyguard claimed in a blog radio show interview that surfaced Wednesday on BET.

Byron "Big Naz" Williams, former bodyguard for the best-selling Detroit rapper and Academy Award winner, recalled on the Murder Master Music Show two incidents involving confrontations with the Eminem and the co-founder of Death Row Record who is being held in Los Angeles on a murder charge, according to BET.

The audio of Williams's interview addressing the allegations was posted on YouTube on July 21 and had been clicked on 173,000 times.

"There was a situation at the Source Awards, which was our first encounter with Suge Knight and his henchmen," Williams said in the interview. "They had it to where the artists couldn't sit with the bodyguards. I notice Em is in the aisle and he is beefing with all these guys in red shirts. This is what they said: 'Death Row mother f******. Suge Knight sent us to strong arm Eminem and it's going down.' I had to snatch Em up and call (rapper Dr. Dre), because he was backstage."

Dr. Dre, a co-founder of Death Row Records, was also a mentor to Eminem, according to Rolling Stone magazine.

Williams told the Murder Master Music Show about another incident in Hawaii when Knight and his entourage were also there.

"When the plane lands we are greeted by 20 Honolulu police officers and they told us that Death Row is here — they tried to hem (rapper Snoop Dog) up," Williams said, noted BET. "Suge Knight had sent 50 guys to try to break up the show. When we got there, vacation mode was over, we were lockin'-n-loading, putting on bullet proof vests with their wives and girlfriends sitting next to them. We had to have Interscope (Records) pick up the tab to put Honolulu police with each bodyguard, because of how deep Suge was over there."

Williams did not give the dates of the two incidents.

The ex-bodyguard wrote the book "Shady Bizzness: Life as Marshall Mathers' Body Guard in an Industry of Paper Gangsters," which was published in 2000, according to Amazon.

Knight, 50, is currently awaiting trial on murder and attempted-murder charges connected with his involvement in a January 2015 fast food parking lot incident that killed one man and serious injured another in Compton, California, while a promo for the movie "Straight Outta Compton" was being shot, according to The Daily Beast.
