look up any word, like dirty sanchez:
 
1.
A location in a jail where an inmate is easily jumped or killed by fellow inmates or guards without being noticed.
The warden's snitch got killed in the gankin zone and there were no whitnesses.

Lyrics from Eazy E's "Eazy Does It"

"The bitch was a trip cold hung up the phone, now my only phone call was in the ganking zone."
