It started in Compton. It ended in infamy.
Death Row Records exploded on the music scene in 1993 with a "Gangster Rap" sound that took the world by storm. Yet, despite its unprecedented success with stars such as Dr. Dre, Snoop Doggy Dogg and Tupac, it quickly unraveled in a firestorm of rivalries, greed, violence and scrutiny by the government and the media as Marion "Suge" Knight's unconventional business methods increasingly mirrored the violent, hard-edged themes of its music.
Told entirely in the words of those who were there, Welcome To Death Row is the complete and largely untold story of this enigmatic enterprise. It is an inside look at the American Dream gone insane.
