The acclaimed documentary film on Hip-Hop’s biggest and most enduring story
Now coming to book form, with explosive new revelations.
Death Row Records exploded on the music scene in 1993 with a “gangster rap” sound that took 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.
WELCOME TO DEATH ROW is the complete and untold story of this unique enterprise, told entirely in the words of the people who were there.
It is an inside look at the American Dream gone insane.
This August, Universal Pictures will release STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, the story of NWA, starring O’Shea Jackson Jr., Paul Giamani, Corey Hawkins , Neil Brown Jr. and Jason Mitchell as Eazy-E. Produced by Legendary Pictures and directed by F. Gary Gray.
Xenon Pictures developed STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON as a follow up to WELCOME TO DEATH ROW.

“It’s the film Suge Knight doesn’t want you to see”
