Description: Founded in 1993, Death Row Records emerged as one of the most successful new labels in recording history, with sales climbing to the $125 million mark in just four years. Even more noticable than the label's success is the effect it had on youth culture, making gangsta rap and headline acts Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dog more popular with suburban white youth and MTV viewers than traditional rock groups.

At the heart of this label, however, was a ferocious criminal enterprise, cloaked behind the corporate facades of Time Warner and MCA-Universal that made it look legitimate. Ronin Ro, the country's preeminent rap journalist, exposes the facts everyone else is afraid to divulge -- from the initial bankrolling of Death Row by a leader of L.A.'s notorious Bloods gang, to links with New York's Genovese crime family. "Have Gun Will Travel" lays hare the full story behind this influential label including the suspicious murders of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G., as well as C.E.O. Suge Knight's rise to power, his fight with East Coast rap titans such as Scan "Puffy" Combs, and his eventual imprisonment.

Although it has been all over the news -- from The Wall Street Journal to Rolling Stone -- Death Row's story is a timeless one of an empire built on greed, corruption, murder, and exploitation.
