Hip hop mogul Marion "Suge" Knight's status check hearing has been rescheduled for Nov. 14.

The founder of bankrupt Death Row Records posted $19,000 bail and was released from a Las Vegas jail in August. He appeared in Las Vegas Justice Court on Sept. 26 on felony assault and drug charges.

Metro Police arrested Knight on Aug. 27 after officers say they saw him beat his girlfriend while brandishing a knife in a parking lot near the Las Vegas Strip.

The woman wasn't stabbed. She was treated at a local hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening, police said.

Police said Knight had the drugs Ecstasy and hydrocodone when he was arrested.
