Summary, etc.:
In the wake of Suge Knight's move to destroy NWA and Ruthless, Death Row Records exploded on the music scene in 1993 with a “gangster rap” sound that had taken the world by storm. Despite its unprecedented success with stars such as Dr. Dre, Snoop and Tupac, it quickly unraveled in a firestorm of rivalries, greed, and violence as Knight’s business methods increasingly mirrored the violent, hard-edged themes of its music.. This is the complete and untold story of this unique enterprise, told entirely in the words of the people who were there.. “It’s the film Suge Knight doesn’t want you to see” – National Enquirer. “Riveting.” - San Francisco Chronicle
