Death Row Records (formerly Future Shock Entertainment and Tha Row Records) was an American record company founded in 1991 by Suge Knight and other associates, record label almost instantly became a sensation by releasing a succession of multi-platinum hip-hop albums from West Coast-based artists such as Dr. Dre (The Chronic), Snoop Dogg (Doggystyle), Tha Dogg Pound (Dogg Food), Tupac Shakur (All Eyez on Me), and others during the early-to-mid-1990s. At its peak, Death Row Records was making over $100,000,000 a year, but by the late 90s the label began to decline in the wake of the shooting death of its star artist Tupac Shakur and imprisonment of co-founder Suge Knight. While Death Row was enjoying financial success, the label would be embroiled in many controversies, lawsuits, legal troubles and violence by its artists and associates. The company filed for bankruptcy in 2006 and was auctioned to entertainment development company WIDEawake Entertainment Group, Inc. for $18,000,000 on January 15, 2009. Death Row Records' legacy has been credited in popularizing the form of gangsta rap music to a wider audience.
