Product Overview

In 1993, a company called Death Row Records exploded on the music scene, seemingly from nowhere, and quickly came to dominate a music genre specializing in hard-edged stories from the ghetto, labeled "Gangsta Rap" by the media. Led by a 315-pound ex-bodyguard named Suge Knight, Death Row made superstars of such artists as Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur and Snoop Doggy Dogg, and released an unprecedented six consecutive multi-platinum albums. But by 1996, Death Row's controversial artists, along with rumors of violent business practices and allegations that the label was started with drug money, made it a target of the FBI, "family values" advocates such as C. Delores Tucker and William Bennett, and powerful, emerging rival rappers on the East Coast. With the shooting death of Tupac Shakur, its biggest star, and the imprisonment of founder Suge Knight, the label was brought to its knees. Told entirely in the words of the people who lived it, Welcome To Death Row chronicles the rise and fall of this enigmatic, very unconventional yet classically American business enterprise. Chief among them is Death Row's imprisoned silent partner Michael Harris (a.k.a. "Harry O"), who discloses for the first time his role in financing the company and the betrayal he suffered at the hands of Suge Knight and David Kenner, his former attorney who would become Knight's right hand man. This film examines Suge Knight's bold and often violent moves to create the label, its astonishing success with such seminal albums as "The Chronic", and its undoing as Death Row's unconventional business methods increasingly mirrored the violent themes of its music. This is a glimpse inside the recording industry unlike anything ever seen before.
