Code name for Cell Block Death Row, the most hardcore cell block in a maximum security prison. This is not a place for the weak - prison rapes and beatings are common. From Ice Cube's song "Check Yo Self." Based on a phonetic alphabet (for example, A = Alpha, B = Baker, C = Charlie, D = Denver, E = Echo, etc).
"They send ya to Charlie Baker Denver Row
Now they runnin' up in ya slow"
