A record label that was home to the biggest artists from the west coast during the 90s. It once housed heavy hitters such as Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and 2Pac. Now it is a place where rapper's careers go to die.

If you are an artist trapped on death row, your best chance to escape is to fake your own death (a la 2pac)
aspiring rapper: I just signed to death row.
friend: oh shit homie, you're screwed.
aspiring rapper: I know, I know, I was drunk and Suge was going to beat my ass if I didn't.
friend: you know what you gotta do? You gotta pull a 2pac.

A particularly bad street in a bad neighborhood. Often applied to the worst street in the area, but there can be numerous "Death Rows" in a given neighborhood.

Some streets that are only dangerous for certain people can also be tagged as death row.

People often risk death by traveling down certain streets, either at particular times, or at any time. Causes of death can include: Armed robbery, muggings, gang wars, family feuds, random shootings/knife attacks, drive by shootings, reckless drivers, and stepping on and getting stuck by used needles.
ex. 1) Damn, ever since the fire station closed down, beach street really turned into death row.

ex. 2) South coronado boulevard is like death row for asians.

ex. 3) Damn, Terry fucked up so bad with Jullie, the whole street she lives on is death row for him. Her whole family is out to get him.
