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"
-Ice Cube, "Check Yo Self"

Designated names for tiers in the L.A. County jail. Made famous by Ice Cube's "Check Yo Self," the tier names are also discussed in Sanyika Shakur's (Kody Scott) book "Monster: The Autobiography of an L.A. Gang Member."
"There are two tiers consisting of Able and Charlie rows." (Shakur p. 133)

"Bloods, Americans - there were very few - and victims lived on Baker and Denver rows, or P.C., Protective Custody." (Shakur p. 135)

"They send ya to Charlie Baker Denver Row
Now they runnin' up in ya slow."
(Ice Cube, "Check Yo Self")
